What to do with your wedding dress
It's every bride's dream to sail down the aisle in the most beautiful wedding dress ever. Many of us spend a decade or more dreaming of what sort of dress we have before our special day finally comes. What do you do with it when it's all over though? Wedding dresses are often voluminous, and take a lot of space in the closet. After spending hundreds of dollars on it however, throwing it out is just plain unimaginable. If you're trying to plan ahead, here are three things you can do with your dress:
Wedding dresses are expensive. You probably plunked down quite a bit of cash for your dress. Why not get some of it back and help another woman along to their dream wedding all at the same time?
Somewomen can't afford to have a wedding. Donating your wedding dress can help impoverished women still have their wedding days, or grieving mothers cope with the loss of stillborn or SIDS death when the dress is remade into angel outfits. There's a lot of potential good your dress can do for the right non-profit.
A recent popular trend is to bring a photographer out and have a photo session while you—well--wreck the dress. This could mean taking beautiful photos in mud or water, having fun in a spray paint fight with your new husband, or just going to town with scissors in a cascade of fluff. You'll get a beautiful set of memorable photos and the dress is definitely taken care of.
There are actually a surprising number of ways you can handle your wedding dress after the wedding. All you need is a little inspiration to decide what's best for you.
