Wearing the dress again

I can't be the only bride who dreams of wearing my wedding dress again. 

A lot of girls grow up dreaming of their wedding day. You want to meet the perfect man for you to marry and live happily ever after. And you can't wait to find your dress that'll make you feel the most beautiful you've ever felt in your life.

Then, the wedding day comes and goes. You're happily married but you find yourself having to part from the dress. It might have gotten a little dirty or ripped and a decision has to be made: to preserve or not to preserve. 

The preservation process not only cleans the dress but requires it to be placed into a sealed container. The dress is only supposed to be handled with gloves and to check for damages and/or yellowing. The process is quite costly. 

What if I told you I preserved my dress shortly after our wedding, only to take it out and wear it again?

Well, I have and I am -- for our Anniversary Photo Shoot. You see, our wedding photographer failed to capture photos of us in front of our church and outdoors during the daytime and I really want those photos. And what better way to commemorate our FIRST anniversary than a photo shoot featuring some of our wedding day memorabilia. 

We were going to get them done in June but then we found ourselves with just 3 weeks to move so the shoot just wasn't a priority. This way it's closer to our anniversary and will be taken at our church. 

Some people, including family and friends, think it's a little wacky. I appreciate their opinions but I am so excited for the shoot that it doesn't really bother me. Plus, this type of shoot, including the wedding dress, is becoming more popular. 

Because I'm not the only bride who dreams of wearing the dress again. 

What do you think about wearing it again? Thoughts?


  1. I think it's great that you're going back to get the photos you didn't get the first time around.
