I want some really cool ideas to do with my dress after the wedding besides seal it up in a box that will never be opened.
I actually saw on the first season fo Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that Adrienne Maloof had her’s in this huge frame and hanging in her closet. That is such a cool idea but where could I get this done and how much would it cost.
What are other bees planning on doing?

@LovebirdsSC: Whoa I would totally frame my dress … I don’t know, I was originally thinking of dyeing it another color because it’s short so I could use it as a cocktail dress, but I don’t think I could bring myself to do it. It’s probably going to sit in a box 🙁 I am planning to buy a cheap white maxi dress and do a TTD photoshoot though, you could do that with your actual dress if you don’t mind dirtying it up.

I love how Adreinne from BHHW has hers displayed.
The back of mine is buttoned with real pearls, so I will remove them and take them to the jeweler to be made into an heirloom necklace.
other than that, I do not know.

@GroovyHippieChick: yes, thats it, I bet that cost a fortune. Looks like it was actually built in. But it would be a cool way to remember your dress and day.

@LovebirdsSC: Everything she does costs a fortune! (I’m hopelessly addicted to RHOBH)

@GroovyHippieChick: I didn’t know about this organization, I was hoping to donate mine somewhere after the wedding and honestly haven’t started looking. Just did a Google search for Brides Against Breast Cancer and I like what I’m seeing. Thanks for sharing.

@bythebook: You’re very welcome. FI’s sister died from breast cancer so I thought it would be a fitting tribute.
Here’s the website in case anyone else is interested

It is currently hanging in my son’s room in his closet. Sadly I still havent had it “cleaned yet” from my wedding almost a year ago. I probably should do that and get it preserved.
