Brides put in a lot of their time, effort and money in ensuring that their wedding dress is absolutely perfect. However, unfortunately, this amazing bridal gown, which is prepared with great effort, is worn just once on the wedding day, and after that, it simply sits in the storage and rots. Many brides like to store this dress properly and keep it as a memory of their wedding. However, all in all, this dress goes complete waste.
But if you are someone who does not like wasting things, then we have some special ideas which will help you in using this dress in some smart ways even after the wedding day.
The only purpose because of which a bride would like to spend her time and effort in preserving this huge bridal dress of hers is that there are many emotions and memories of the big day attached to this dress. We understand and respect these emotions and therefore, do not expect you to simply throw away the dress. Instead you can use the dress to make some bridal accessories, like use its material for making necklaces, etc. These accessories are much more practical and you can actually wear them to many different occasions in your life. This way, you would not only keep your wedding memories close to you, but be able to remember them a lot more often than a wedding dress, tucked in a closet will allow you to remember them.
Save It For Your Daughter
Many brides have opted to wear the bridal dress of their mothers at their wedding ceremony. Wearing your mother’s wedding dress to your wedding not only has a lot of emotional significance, but it also helps in giving your wedding a vintage look. Therefore, before you decide to do anything with your wedding dress, ask your daughter whether she would like you to preserve the dress for her wedding or not.
Host An All Brides Party
Throwing parties with themes is a common trend. You can throw a party, the theme of which would be brides only, and here, every guest will have to come to the party dressed like a bride. This will give not just you, but all your other friends as well an opportunity to wear their wedding gown once more.
This is a new trend which has caught on recently, but is becoming immensely popular. If you have any landmark event coming up in your life, like your anniversary, birth of a child, etc., you can celebrate that event by getting your photos clicked in your wedding dress, doing some really cool and fun stuff. For example, you can take your husband to a beach and there you can get some really amazing pictures clicked of the two of you in the beach and in your wedding dress. Surely your dress would get spoiled for good, but you will be left with some of the best picture memories of you and your husband together.
No matter what you choose to do with your dress, make sure that you do not regret your decision later in life.
