Trash It, Keep It, Wear It Again: What To Do With the Dress After the Wedding


Well, we’ve told you about brides selling their wedding dresses to a once-worn local bridal shop after their weddings in order to make back some of their money. You’ve no doubt heard of trash-the-dress photo sessions. And we even recently filled you in on a local couple who started a photo project in which they travel all around the world, and he (a photographer and professor) snaps shots of her in her wedding dress in their various far-flung locales. And of course, there’s always saving it for your little girl.

These days, there are a ton of options concerning what to do with your wedding dress after the wedding is over, you’ve returned from the honeymoon, and your photo album is complete.
