    I don’t see why you can’t wear the dress as a costume unless you were going to ruin it? it’s usually only worn once, I think it can be worn more than just once.

    Wow! I don’t know, I haven’t thought about it.  Maybe? But I’d have to lose a few pounds first….. πŸ˜‰

    I think if you wore the dress, it would have to be part of a costume. I personally would roll my eyes if someone, especially a newlywed, used Halloween as an opportunity to prance around in their wedding dress and it wasn’t part of a larger costume. There are a lot of costumes that could include the dress and be pretty cool, but might involve getting the dress damaged or dirty, so I would hesitate to use my real wedding dress for something like that.

    Nope. I know people say it’s a lot of money to only wear it once but I want to only wear it at my wedding! So no for me, haha.

    I totally would have!

    However, my Darling Husband said NO!!!! To be honest it wouldn’t fit in a crowded room anyway my dress is just a massive poof of organza.

    If I got my dress super cheap and wasn’t completely in love with it (ie had to settle) I would totally make it into a zombie costume or a killer bride costume. As for just wearing it about, nope.

    I’m not opposed to the idea…however I want to keep my dress looking beautiful for as long as possible and I plan to have it preserved.  While I could wait a month to get it preserved and wear it for Halloween I’d be afraid to ruin the dress.  I’m hoping my daughter will wear the dress at her wedding…I know that may not be practical she may not like the style but I’d like her to have the option and keep the dress looking beautiful.

    Hah, my friend did this a few years ago. Her wedding was 10/9 and she wore it again for Halloween and was a zombie bride. She just did crazy makeup, nothing to the dress. After Halloween she got it cleaned and preserved, no harm done. I thought it was hilarious. Might as well get more use out of such an expensive item.

    I don’t think I would just because of the sentimental value. I want to remember it as a wedding dress, not a Halloween costume. But to anyone that would do it, more power to you! I can be too attached to sentimental value sometimes. πŸ™‚

    We were on a cruise 2 years ago and it was during halloween. I saw 3 girls all in wedding dresses as their halloween constumes I was a bit in shock b/c at first but then I thought what the heck…..a great wear to wear it again. Although I was thinking to myself that must have taken up a lot of room in the suitcase! However, I can’t see myself doing it thou!

    well let me say this, im hispanic so i had my quinceanera and for us its almost as big and important as a wedding day and i have worn my quinceanera dress as a halloween costume  several times

    but the thing is i did a princess costume

    now for a wedding dress you could always do a zombie bride πŸ˜€ i mean its not like your really going to use that dress otherwise so sure why not πŸ˜€
