I totally agree! I wear my wedding shoes all the time– they were gold flats so I can wear them with jeans, skirts, dresses–everything. And they give me such warm fuzzies. <3

Agreed.  My shoes are in great condition.  I wear my bracelet from time to time & my fake pearls that were matched up with my grandmothers “borrowed/old” pearls.

It is totally cool to put on something you wore that day, it brings back the memories all over again ๐Ÿ™‚

I bought two pairs of shoes (flats and heels) that I’ve already worn again and all the other outfits (lingerie, Rehearsal Dinner Dress, Shower dress) have all been reworn or I have an specific occasion they will make an appearance again.

This is exactly why I chose jewelry that isn’t “bridal”!  I planning on wearing it all again with fond memories!

My wedding day shoes and jewelry were re-wearable. It’s been almost a year since our wedding, and I’ve reworn those things a few times. It’s great ๐Ÿ™‚

Great though! I’m sure you get warm fuzzies every time you wear the sweater!

I have this idea that I want to take my wedding dress after I’m done with the day and have it altered into something I can wear everyday (a la a Project Runway episode from 2 seasons ago I think). But if I can’t manage that, then it will be my shoes.

Waiting bee waits and plans crazy things. ๐Ÿ˜€
