Things You Can do With Your Wedding Gown After the Wedding.

A wedding gown is part of a brides love story. It’s much more than pieces of fabric. In society today with so many modern women, very few women carve out time to feel like a magical princess. However, there is the one time when she wears the wedding gown of her dreams.

I loved my gown so much, I planned the exact day it would be worn again right after my wedding. It was worn the following year, a month before my first anniversary.   I was so anxious to do it. I called my photography mentor a few months after my wedding and booked the fun shoot.

Here are 10 things you could do with your wedding gown, post wedding:

  1. Have it cleaned and placed in a shadow box to hang on the wall
  2. Transform it into a  regular dress
  3. Preserve it for your daughter
  4. Wear it for an anniversary portrait
  5. Donate it to a charity for breast cancer or a bride that can’t afford to buy a nice gown
  6. Sell it to a consignment shop such as,  Le Dress Boutique, Discount Wedding and Evening Dresses
  7. You could trash your dress for awesome photos
  8. Become a bridal model and showcase your gown
  9. Rent it out for bridal marketing images
  10. Keep it and store it away from natural lightMMP_1692.jpg This was such a fun first anniversary session!
