a few ideas what to do with your wedding dress after the wedding.
Save your dress as a keepsake.
Preserving your gown doesn’t mean it needs to sit in storage… celebrate your anniversary and have a romantic photo session of you two…by taking photos, and wearing your wedding dress.
Or wear it every year on your anniversary? ask your friends to do the same by hosting a dress up party (that’s if your wedding dresses still fits!) have all your friends over to celebrate with you with lots of champagne, homemade food, cake and music made for a super fun party.
The best part is to set up a photo booth with your camera and a tripod so you could all take pictures together [in your wedding gowns].
Donate your dress to a worthy cause.
You could contact a prop house and donate the dress to them. It could be perfect for a movie or TV show and it is a great way to have the dress to live on. maybe you will see it in a movie wedding scene someday!”
Or why not donate your wedding dress to a nonprofit organisation Who will sell it for much cheaper than the original price, allowing another woman to enjoy the dress.
There are millions of women who are looking for a gorgeous, showstopper gown but just can’t afford a brand new one.
Or donate it to Women Against Breast Cancer.
Check with your daughter first before donating it…
Make something completely new out of your wedding dress (that’s if you have the guts to cut it up)
Use the material and lace of the dress to make a christening gown for your children or grand children so that it can continue to be passed down for generations.
Or use some of the material by making beautiful scatter cushions or pillow cases.
Trash the dress!”
Want to do something memorable for your anniversary? so why not pull out your wedding dress and do something fun with it?
“I think the point of a ‘trash the dress’ session is not to do something you will regret down the line, but instead, to enrich your wedding/marriage experience by giving yourself the gift of feeling beautiful”.
Dance in the rain or dive in the sea, role in the hay or jump into a mud pool.
You no longer have to worry about keeping it clean for the ceremony…you could simply be in your dress and relax.
Whatever you do just enjoy it and remember to take pictures.
