The dress I have my eye on is pretty adaptable … so with a coloured belt or whatever I reckon I could pull off whipping it out again!

I told Fiance I will definitely be wearing my dress after the wedding!!

My best friend and I are planning on having a “Wear your Wedding Dress Again” party!! She’s married, my sister got married last year, her sister is getting married in April and I’m getting married in June so we are all going to get together and dress up in them for a girls night!

I just told him last night that every anniversary, we are going to wear my dress and his suit, just to keep ourselves accountable for our weight. He looked at me, laughed and said “You know, NO ONE would believe that you were the one to suggest this and not me!” I told him he gets to trade me in if I can’t zip the sucker up. 😛

The dress I’m buying can double as an evening gown; one reason I’m buying it.  The other is because it’ll go PERFECTLY with the theme (especially if I get black sais and get my hair done right! WOOT!).  

I honestly couldn’t see spending a lot for something I’d only wear once.  Doesn’t make sense to me… guess I’m too practical!

Love the idea of having a party to wear the dresses again, though! LOL!  Sounds like it’d be a lot of fun!

For those of you interested in dying your dresses that are made from synthetic fabrics, consider Acid Dye.

You’d want a VERY BIG vat of water for this to work, and you have to not mind getting your dress wet, of course, but I’ve dyed several sythetic items successfully with this method.

This pink bodysuit was originally white when ordered. (The stripes you may see in the body suit are a result of the suit’s making.)

It can be a bit scary, since removing a botched color job isn’t always guaranteed, but there you go. 🙂

i LOVE the wedding dress NYE party 🙂

 

some of them could be reworn to a marine corps ball. i think i wouldn’t wear mine to one though–i don’t want to dye it. but it is possible.

i was just THInking about wearing my dress again (the dress I do not have again). Then I had a great idea…Why not host a dinner party for all your friends…Have all the married women wear their dresses….single wear anything but white. 

Even hire a cater to do the party (in your home if you have enough space)…that even gives you excuse to use your fancy china you got as a wedding gift…lol. 

 

Just a random idea…or die the dress if possible…i was told the darker colours wont turn out the way you want….so maybe a lighter colour…
