Wedding Dress

Choos­ing a wed­ding dress is prob­a­bly the biggest and most time-con­sum­ing and mon­ey-con­sum­ing task. Although the result is worth it! But after the long-await­ed cel­e­bra­tion, many brides have a ques­tion, what to do with the wed­ding dress? Where to apply it?

A few rec­om­men­da­tions about the future of the wed­ding dress

If you are one of those girls who do not want to rent a wed­ding dress in the salon, but only buy a new one, then these tips are just for you. After all, I don’t want it to just hang in the clos­et and at the same time take up most of it.

  1. Fam­i­ly heir­loom. You can have your wed­ding dress dry-cleaned or you can tidy it up your­self and store it for future gen­er­a­tions. If you have a daugh­ter, you can safe­ly pass this dress on to her as a fam­i­ly heir­loom. More­over, this option is becom­ing more and more pop­u­lar. In addi­tion, you can always put it on and remem­ber the hap­pi­est moments of your life.
  2. Gift. You can present such a wed­ding gift to a friend or com­plete strangers. This act is very noble and will bring you and peo­ple a lot of pos­i­tive emo­tions.
  3. Sell. If you want to sell a dress to a pile, then this is best done imme­di­ate­ly after the wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion. Then it won’t affect the price too much. Although you need to be pre­pared that the price at which you pur­chased a wed­ding dress may dif­fer sig­nif­i­cant­ly from the mon­ey received after the cel­e­bra­tion. Many imme­di­ate­ly, when buy­ing a dress, agree with bridal salons on its fur­ther sale. All this is nego­ti­at­ed indi­vid­u­al­ly. You can also place ads on wed­ding web­sites or in the news­pa­per.
  4. Make a pho­to ses­sion. Many new­ly­weds do wed­ding pho­to shoots not only on the day of the cel­e­bra­tion, but also after. There­fore, if your plans include a hon­ey­moon trip, then be sure to take a dress with you. After all, how won­der­ful the bride will look against the back­ground of palm trees and sandy shores, on a horse or on a para­chute.
  5. Alter. If the plans do not include stor­ing a wed­ding dress for your heirs, then you can always redo it. For exam­ple, you can make an out­fit out of it for your lit­tle princess or sew an incred­i­bly beau­ti­ful and lux­u­ri­ous bap­tismal out­fit.
  6. Repaint. You can also dye your wed­ding dress in a dif­fer­ent col­or. The only thing worth pay­ing atten­tion to is the fab­ric. After all, most often the dress is made from var­i­ous mate­ri­als. Although even this fea­ture can play into the hands. After all, the uneven col­or of the dress looks very orig­i­nal and beau­ti­ful.

Farewell to the wed­ding dress

Recent­ly, the tra­di­tion of farewell to the wed­ding dress, which came to us from Ger­many, Amer­i­ca and Aus­tralia, has become very pop­u­lar. If you do not want to keep the dress or remake it, then you can “kill” it. Thanks to this, a new style of wed­ding pho­to shoot has appeared — Trash the dress. Trans­lat­ed from Eng­lish means — turn the dress into garbage. The style was born about a decade ago, thanks to a pho­tog­ra­ph­er who got bored of tak­ing monot­o­nous wed­ding pho­tographs. At the same time, it is not nec­es­sary to com­plete­ly destroy the dress, it is enough just to get it dirty. You can dec­o­rate a wed­ding dress with paints, swim in the riv­er, lie on the floor of an aban­doned build­ing or go to a fac­to­ry. Such a back­ground is quite unusu­al for cre­at­ing a wed­ding fam­i­ly pho­to and it is inter­est­ing for that. There are a lot of places for an orig­i­nal pho­to shoot, the main thing is to approach this issue cre­ative­ly. Believe me, the surge of emo­tions that you can get dur­ing such a pho­to ses­sion is sim­ply huge. Such sophis­ti­cat­ed bul­ly­ing, which is cap­tured by the cam­era lens, will remind you of the fun­ni­est and most orig­i­nal event of your life.
