We just talked about how to break the news of a divorce on social media, while on our sister site, Offbeat Bride, we’re talking about what to do with that perfectly-fitting wedding dress after you divorce.
However, you don’t have to be going through a divorce to reap the benefits of this DIY. Plus there’s a super-uplifting story to boot…
After my wedding, I was left with a dress and accessories that I loved (I mean, look at those gloves!) but they were marred by the circumstances that surrounded their debut. There was a dress in my wardrobe that fitted me perfectly but that I couldn’t wear, and that I couldn’t bring myself to give away. In some ways, I felt like this dress was stopping me from moving on with my life.
So I decided to reclaim my wedding dress. I swallowed my nerves, broke out a different pair of gloves, and dyed it blue. And it was amazing.
Here’s the process for anyone wanting to alter their wedding dress, to give new life to a dress that marked the beginning of a happy marriage, or — as in my case — to cover some bad memories with a dose of brightly coloured dye.
Grab a dress, a box of dye, and check this post out.
