Ah, the wedding dress! You spend so much time looking for the dress, making sure it’s absolutely perfect, and paying quite a large amount for it. But what happens after the ceremony, the reception, and the dancing? What are you going to do with your dress? If you haven’t made up your mind yet, don’t worry. We’re bringing you some options! Here are some things you can do with your wedding dress after your wedding day.
This is totally possible! And if you’re not planning on wearing your dress again, this is one option that’ll make your dress worth it for the money that you paid (might as well get as much from it, right?). You can dye or paint it another color, cut it, and make some alterations—it’ll be like it’s brand new!
If you’re planning on celebrating your anniversary in a fancy way, and maybe you want to say your vows again, saving your dress with the intention of using it again after a few years is an option. Just make sure that you have it washed by a professional garment cleaner like Reviva before you tuck it inside your cabinet.
Reviva uses wet cleaning that can restore the vibrancy of your wedding dress. The Hydroclean Technology they use is way safer than the traditional dry-cleaning service since they use biodegradable, non-toxic, and phosphate-free agents. Drop off your wedding gown in their newly opened store in The Podium and remember all the good memories from your wedding day once you try it on again!
If you’re a D.I.Y. kind of person, you’ll see that there’s a world of possibilities when it comes to repurposing your dress. You can turn your dress into some lingerie, scarves, necklaces, clutches, pillows, blankets, quilts, and even a christening gown for your child! The possibilities are endless–you can even turn it into home decor!
There’s nothing wrong with keeping and preserving your dress as a token to remember your wedding day by. After all, some great moments happened while you were wearing that dress. Save it for your future daughter or daughter-in-law. Who knows? She might want to wear your dress on her wedding day, too. So, make wedding gown preservation by Jeeves an option! How does it work? After your dress has been thoroughly cleaned, it will be layered with acid-free paper and specially packed into a museum grade preservation box. The preservation box is a great storage vessel made of extra strong ligning-free boards and has a neutral pH level which will prevent your gown from developing brown spots and turning yellow over time. It’s also water and vermin resistant to keep insects from damaging your dress. Neat, right?
