One of the most undoubtedly exciting stages of wedding planning is picking out the perfect made for you wedding gown. On that one amazing day, you can strut down the runway (whoops!) make that aisle, in the dress of your dreams. Whether you’ve fallen in love with the sumptuous custom fit, gorgeous French lace, intricate bead work, or every incredible sparkle adorning the rich fabric, your wedding dress is a true treasure. Which begs the question, what to do with your wedding dress after the big day?
Wear it again, just with a different look this time. With all of the beautiful craftsmanship that goes into a gown, there are plenty of details to work with. Satin, lace, and silk all lend themselves well to recreating a stunning piece of lingerie. And each and every time you wear it for your someone special it will remind both of you of the most special day of your lives!
Get creative! Home décor is another way to keep your wedding dress on display with a useful purpose. Whether you’ve lived together for years, or you’ve just begun nesting as newlyweds, weaving in your wedding style into your decorating style is a great touch. Put all the lush tulle, organza, and sparkle to good use by creating custom throw pillows for your couch or your bed. What could be better than ending each night with a little bit of wedding magic?
Store…and restore! One day down the line you never know how your dress might come in handy. Perhaps your daughter will fall in love with incorporating a piece of your I do’s into her own. Or maybe you’ll get inspired to recreate your gown into a something new for another occasion. Keep your dress preserved so you find it just as you left it!
