Top 3 Things to do with your Wedding Dress


When the wedding is over and you’re trying to figure out what to do with your wedding dress, it can be a hard decision. This dress is probably the most expensive pieces of clothing you will ever have, and yet it’s only meant to be worn once. So what happens when you’re done with the day? We know this can be a perplexing question so we went to the net to get some ideas and we found our top three creative options for what you can do.

#1: Donate it

There are many groups that use donated wedding dresses to raise money for their cause. In this article posted on bridesagainstbreastcancer.org, we find out that this group sells donated wedding dresses to raise money for breast cancer. With donations from individuals, bridal shops and designers, they’ve been able to raise money to assist them in providing breast cancer awareness, wellness education and services that help people who have been affected by cancer. It’s a very worthy cause, and if you look there are probably other sites that accept wedding dress donations as well. For example, brides that want to look beautiful on their wedding day, but don’t have the money to go and buy an expensive wedding dress can use these sites to get a gorgeous designer dress for a fraction of the cost and feel like the belle of the ball of their wedding day. Your donation will help another less fortunate bride enjoy her special day as much as you were able to enjoy yours.
