Depending on the fabric, it would be cool to dye it and wear it to a military ball.  BTW, I love the dresses that zip apart.

Does anyone know what fabrics can be dyed? Mine is allover alencon lace and I’d love to be able to do this.

@meliss – I would take it to a really good dry cleaner, alot of them dye also.  They will be able to tell you whether or not they can dye it.  There are too many variables to dying it at home and I wouldn’t risk it with rit dye.

I wish – mine is crazy beaded satin.  No chance of wearing it again.

I wore mine twice–first for the ceremony and luncheon in Massachusetts, then for the at-home reception.  I then sold it to another bride, who was thrilled to get it.  I really couldn’t see wearing it again.

i definitely dont plan to wear mine again, even if i dyed, i dont think it could look like anything but a wedding dress. i also plan to sell it immediately after.  i am even thinking of posting ads before the wedding!

After I’m married, I’m going to wear my dress all the time. I’m going to vacuum, do the laundry and cook supper in that bad boy! I’m not paying $1800 for nothing, so you can bet your ass I’m gonna get my money’s worth!

I’d like to dye mine and wear it again, but I’d probably cut it short. I don’t know that I’ll have a lot of future events to wear a long gown to, but if it’s knee length or tea length I could wear it to a lot of work functions or weddings.

I def plan on keeping my wedding dress and occasionally doing the housework in it…… my mum has kept her wedding dress for 29 years and we are planning to have it made into a christening shawl as it has layers and layes of lace….im hoping to foloow this tradition with my own wedding dress one day.
