Mine is being repurposed. Top and skirt. It’s not white though so it will just rotate right in to my wardrobe.

I had a “trash the dress” photoshoot about 6 months after our wedding, the dress didn’t get ruined and Im donating it.

I love those photos and it was so much fun! 

I love my veil and it was expensive, I am still deciding what I would do with it if I have a daughter, a canopy for her crib or preserve it for when she grows up

There’s this seamstress in Germany who custom makes wedding dresses into Dirndl. I’ve been thinking about doing this. The other thing what I was trinking about was adding some color and making it into a cocktail dress. Or simply selling or donating it. I don’t need it to hang around and taking up space….

I definitely considering altering and reusing my wedding dress after the wedding. I am not sure what I will want to do yet though. I considered seeing if I could make it into a hi-low or cocktail style dress, or maybe dye it in some way. But I am not quite sure if I will even want to do that in the end, since it was so expensive! But my mom even (who paid for the dress) suggested maybe shortening it later. I am not planning on having children and I am also not planning on getting married again (lol), so I’d probably have no way to use it if I left it as-is. We will see what I finally end up doing.
