I was inspired by Trisha over at Momdot and put on my wedding dress yesterday for the first time since I got married almost 7 years ago. And after two babies, it still fits! Woo!
My wedding dress has been sitting in my closet for the past seven years and has endured an ant raid…seriously, I once had ants tromping through the box the dry cleaner had put my dress in after my wedding. Since then it’s been in a bag. It made the move to Hawaii and there in the back of my closet it hangs.
I had visions of perhaps cutting it up for my daughter’s baptism dress or making a pillow or blanket for her. Or the thought of maybe her wearing it for her own wedding had crossed my mind, but really, I bet she’ll want her own – wasn’t dress shopping so much fun?! I loved it and found my dress on the first day shopping with my mom. It was special.
So what do to with this dress?? Have you heard of Trash The Dress? It’s where you take pictures of you in your wedding dress out in the elements or doing something that you normally wouldn’t do in a wedding dress…like ride a horse or tractor or swim in it. I don’t know, it sounds kinda fun! (my parents, who are most-likely reading this, and paid for my dre$$, are probably having a heart attack right now…don’t worry guys it’s just a thought…but it sure would be fun!)
So, what did you do with your wedding dress? Is it sitting in your closet? Did you turn it into something else? Inspire me!
If you’ve posted about your wedding dress, share! I want to see! Or go and do it NOW! This should be fun!
