    I think it is a lovely idea in theory but the only reservation I have is what about your children? What if they would like to wear the dress? I love the colour you picked though. You will know what is the best fit for you.

    I think it’s very unlikely a future child (should you even have a girl) will want to wear your dress.  But that’s just my opinion.

    My concern would be that they mess it up.  If you’re willing to take the risk, then go for it!  Definitely don’t do it yourself!  Take it to a professional.  I can’t see the first color pic you posted (before the blue one).

    I actually think it’s a great idea. If your familiar with the blog Young House Love, she actually dyed her wedding dress herself and wears it to other weddings now. It turned out great and how amazing would you feel being able to wear your dress again!

    I think what Jen did was her dress was great.  I think instead of a bright color either go black or something pastel, as they will have a better turn out.
