What Will You Do with Your Gown after Your Wedding?

Aug 23, 2007
You have spent plenty of time to plan for your perfect wedding. You have found the most perfect wedding reception hall, made your unique and elegant wedding invitations. You have also got the best wedding favor in the world. Besides, you went through all the stress involved successfully. Now the day has came and it is really the most memorable day in your life.

However, you have probably not thought about what to do with the wedding items after your big day. It is especially true for your gown. You may have spent thousands of dollars on it and it seems that it is now useless, after your wedding. You may not want to just throw it away since it is your gown and it is not environmental friendly either. In fact, you have a few choices apart from the worst idea of throwing it away.

If you are not going to throw the gown away, that means you will keep it at least for a short period of time. The first thing you need to do is to keep it in good condition. You should find a good place at home to store your gown.

If you can store your gown well, in the case that another member of your family is going to marry, you can let her wear your gown in her wedding. It will be more perfect if your gown is a simple one. A simple and classic design is more timeless. It is also true for wedding gowns. As a result, a simple gown means that it will not be considered old fashioned and the bride will be more than happy to take your gown.

There are always cases that a daughter wears her mother's gown on the wedding day. It is really an excellent idea since the gown posses a really special meaning when it is worn by the daughter. You may also consider this idea to keep the gown for your daughter. Of course the key is still to keep it in a really good condition. It will be a pity if you find it not wearable when your daughter tells you she decides to get married.

There is another choice if you do not opt for the idea of keeping your gown and keep it for your family members and daughters. You can consider selling your gown after your wedding. It is a good idea in a sense that you can get some money back after your wedding. You can consider it a way of saving money on your gown. It also provides you a little source of money when you start your life after marriage.

Again, you need to store the gown well before you sell it. No one will be willing to buy a used gown which is in a very bad condition. Keeping the gown well increases the chance of selling it out. Besides, a gown in good condition can surely mean a better price.

Some experts will also advise couples to donate the gown so that they can help the others. However, my idea is that a gown can be something luxury for people who need others help. In this case I would rather suggest you to sell your gown and donate the money instead.
