4 ways to give new life to your wedding dress
You searched and searched, you longed to find it, then one day your eyes met across a crowded dressing room and there it was, the one, your perfect wedding dress. You fell in love, you wore it down the aisle, and you spent the most magical day of your life together…now what? Your wedding dress is the most important dress you will ever buy, surly it deserves better than to spend the rest of its life gathering dust in the back of a cupboard! Give your wedding gown the send-off it deserves with our top 5 ways to recycle your wedding dress.
1. Create a Brand New Dress
OK, so wearing your wedding dress to a Christmas party may be slightly over the top, but with a few alterations no one will be any the wiser, and you can continue ringing in the special moments with your favourite dress of all time. If your dress has been quietly waiting for decades at the back of the cupboard for another chance to shine you can even turn it into something special for your daughter.
Use your dress to help raise money and awareness for a cause that’s near and dear to your heart. You could auction it off for new brides to be to bid on, or donate it to a specific charity that can give it a meaningful second life.
3. Turn it into Something Completely Different
Reincarnate your dress into anything you want! A photo album cover for all of your wedding snaps, pillow cases for you and your partner’s first bed as man and wife, or a toy to give to your little one.
