Make The Most Out of Your Wedding Dress

Aug 4, 2008

If you’ve recently tied the knot and have no idea to do with your fairy tale wedding dress, here are a few suggestions on how to get the most out of your dress, without reselling it or throwing it out. Your wedding day was special. Preserve the memories with these thoughtful dress recycling ideas:

Dress It Up

Playing dress up is one of the best things about being a little girl. Let your child imagine their own wedding by using your old dress as a costume piece. Keep it as is, add silk flowers, jewels, or dye it to make it a gown fit for a princess. Your little girl can indulge her imagination in your cherished bridal gown.

Baptismal/Christening Gowns

Use the silk or satin fabric on your wedding gown to create beautiful baptismal and christening gowns for your children. Tie in the love that started it all on their special day.

Bridal Bedding

Your wedding dress holds a lot of post-day potential. Use the fabrics from your wedding gown to create stunning pillows, quilts, and duvet covers for your guest room or master bedroom. These pieces will not only be gorgeous, they’ll also remind you of the love that built your home.

Marriage Memories

Bind your wedding album in fabric from your wedding and bridesmaid’s dresses. This personalized touch to your photos captures the essence of your wedding day in a way that is truly one of a kind.

Thoughtful Touches

Create lavender or rose petal sachets for your drawers and closet out of the fabric from your wedding gown, or stitch and embroider pieces of your wedding dress to make heartfelt hankies, coin purses, doll clothing or small evening bags. Just use your imagination!
