So the big day is done and you’re a couple of years into your marriage. You’ve had enough time to ogle at your wedding dress and you feel it’s time to do something with it – but what exactly?

Here are some creative things you can do with your wedding dress instead of just letting it collect dust within your closet.

1.Re-tailor your wedding dress

If the design of your wedding dress is able to be altered then why not turn it into a nice outfit that you can wear every day.

You can turn it into a sexy body hugging dress that you can wear on date night with your husband.

2.Use it as a christening gown for your child in the future

If you are a Christian, you can turn it into a Christening gown for your future child, niece or nephew.


3.You can also preserve it for a relative

For sentimental purposes, you can preserve your wedding dress for a close relative. Be it your daughter or niece, if they are up for it then they can definitely have your hand me downs and re-tailor it to meet their specifications.

It’s not only a money saving tactic but a pretty sweet gesture.

4.Trash your wedding dress and have a photo shoot with it

If you want to go a crazier route then you can totally trash your wedding dress with paint or whichever other creative idea you may have for it and then have a cool photo shoot with it.

5.Sell it

Why not make some money off your wedding gown and just sell it. You can give the money you get from it to a charity.
