I haven’t done this, but that sounds exciting! What did your wedding dress look like?

I definitely think that you could wear yours as an evening gown.

Unfortunately I don’t think i’ll ever be able to wear my gown again. It’s much too bridal.

You should absolutely do it!!! I did and it was a great decision!

This is the sample that I tried on at the salon that has the train:

I had the train cut off for my wedding day (I didn’t want to deal with a train and I hate bustles, so I just had it cut off from the start):

And after the wedding I had it dyed black and wore it to a formal event for my husband’s professional society!

I used MetroDyeing LLC fron NYC and I can’t recommend them enough! They were easy to work with and did great work. I orginally wanted to dye my dress royal blue, but I had dark stains around the hem, so they recommended black and I ended up really liking that decision because now I don’t have to worry about stains. 

I wrote a post about the dyeing experience, if you want a read: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/update-i-dyed-my-wedding-dress/#axzz395LmfyWj

aekc:  My dress is literally hanging in our guest room (soon to be nursery) closet.  Haha, nothing’s happening to it….
