Wedding preparations are said to be both exciting and stressful at the same time but nothing is as quite exciting as looking for the dress to wear. Much of the time is spent on finding the right dress with the right fit and the right price. The bride shines and glows on her wedding day with the wedding dress being an important aspect of it. The dress has a certain special place in the whole ceremony but after all of the dancing and the fun, what happens to it? Here are a few ideas on what you can do with your wedding dress after the wedding ceremony.
Keep the dress as is.
Nothing will quite remind you of your wedding day as much as the wedding dress can. It can be framed so that you can display it somewhere or just kept in the box as a remembrance of the wonderful day you had. The dress can also be passed down to your future daughters or daughter in law as a present for their own big day. It is such a nostalgic but also intimate moment to see someone else get married in the dress you wore on your big day.
The dress can be repurposed for something else.
If you enjoy D.I.Y. and believe in your skills then go ahead and start your project but if you are not quite confident of your skills, taking your dress to a seamstress can be the best option. The possibilities are limitless because you can create plenty of things out of your dress. A necklace, a pillow, quilts, and other decorations are some of the ideas that you can use for your dress. If you have something specific in mind then go for it.
Use your dress to make another dress.
It would be a pity to just wear something beautiful once. Make another beautiful dress that you can wear to special occasions or even wear on your first year anniversary with your husband. The dress can be made into a simple long gown or even a cocktail dress fit for a fancy night out. It is always nice to be reminded of the wonderful day where you got to marry the love of your life. Remind him too by wearing a piece of the dress you were wearing when you said ‘yes’ to him.
Who said you cannot wear your wedding dress more than once?
If you are looking at saying your vows again after years of being married to each other, then it is the perfect dress to wear to that occasion. You can alter the dress to fit your current style and be reminded of your wedding day. It would be an amazing sight for your husband to see you be dressed in the same white dress that he married you in. This is your dress after all so you can go all out with it as long as you make great memories that will be cherished for the rest of your lives. Make the most out of the dress.
