Some brides spend weeks even months searching for the perfect wedding dress for their big day, but what should you do with the gown once the toasts and dancing is over? A bride can always keep it in safe storage in hopes that one day her daughter may wear it, but here at Perfectly Planned we have some creative and cute ways you can keep the memory of your wedding night and your dress alive.
Frame your gown
Finding a frame is easy. Just choose a design that works best with the room you want to display the dress in. Fitting the entire length of the dress can be visually awing if you can find a frame large enough, although folding the dress in half making the bottom of the dress a backdrop works beautifully as well. If the dress seems to be to big in width try a shadow box!
Trash the Dress
Trashing your wedding dress has become somewhat of a trend the last couple of years. Brides have done it all from water, to mud, even paint. We think the most elegant, romantic way to take the dress for one more spin is through some water. After the blissful, fairytale wedding is over is when marriage really begins and trashing the dress symbolizes that. This couple shows off their personalities and love for one another in the waterfountains located in downtown Pittsburgh.
Photograph Daughter In Your Dress
This is such a great idea for mothers and daughters. Dressing up your little girl in your wedding dress is a wonderful reminder of your wedding day and the reasons why you said, “I do.” Also, once it comes time for your daughter to walk down the aisle she’ll love looking back on these photos. Display them near the guest book or wrap them up and surprise her with the photos on her big day. If you want to save your dress for the future, we recommend having it professionally preserved. There are professionals who will clean and preserve your gown to protect it for safe keeping for the future. If you are careful to do this and save your dress for many years, you will be able to pull it out years later to try on or even better yet, let your own daughter where your dress
These are just a few ideas we here at Perfectly Planned thought would be a great ways to continue to enjoy your wedding dress after your wedding day has come to an end. Share with us some of the ways you’ve used your wedding dress after you’ve said your I dos!
