7 Ways to Repurpose Your Wedding Dress

We previously discussed on the blog the decision to sell your wedding dress once the big day has passed. There are many of us who will not part with the dress because we attach a lot of meaning to it. While selling the dress is a perfect option both financially and environmentally, there are still a few sentimental people who just can’t bring themselves to sell up. What if we told you you could have your cake and eat it? You could keep the essence of the dress, but not necessarily have it hanging unused in the wardrobe. We have put together some great ideas to repurpose your wedding dress.

1. The first option that comes to mind is to make a party dress out of it.
