Your wedding might be the most special day of your life, and a wedding dress is a big part of that. But, there’s a good chance you’ve probably spent a lot of money on a dress that you’ll only wear once. Not only is that not a good use of money, but it’s also really not sustainable. Instead, try to use your wedding dress in these creative ways that are good for you and the environment.
Make a New Dress
Making a new dress out of a wedding gown is such a good trick to employ if you really want to get good use out of a wedding dress! Taking it to a seamstress and paying a few dollars to get it shortened in the length or in the sleeves is a great investment for the long term, and it means you can enjoy your wedding dress in a whole new way.
Even though this might be really hard, if you’re not going to drastically change your wedding dress so it’s usable again, the best and kindest thing to do is to donate it. There are so many brides that don’t have the financial means to go out and spend a lot on a dress, so make another bride’s dreams come true and donate your gown.
