Wedding Dress Makeover

In my book about how to plan a meaningful and memorable wedding without losing your savings or sanity, I wrote a section on what to do with your wedding dress (or wedding attire) after the wedding.

It's something we don't talk about enough during the wedding planning stage, but our conversations about it might inform the decisions we make about what to buy/make in the first place.

I started thinking about this topic again because Sebrina (who's quoted in my book because she did something super-creative with her wedding dress post-wedding--I won't ruin the surprise) is up to wedding dress makeover antics again.

She wants to transform a 1980s wedding dress in all its puff-sleeved glory into something that she will actually wear, inspired by the blog Where Did U Get That (thanks for the photo!).

I can't wait to see what she comes up with!

Oooohhh. I'm doing this too. I'm taking a 70's contraption that has these horrible sleeves with cuffs. I'll have to check out that blog too. I'll let you know how it turns out!

Aww thanks for sharing my project, Sara! I actually finished it last week and just posted the results to my blog...
It turned out to be a very fun project to work on with scary moments that required creative thinking to work through ;)

I am so excited that other people have this idea as well! Since my sewing skills are in the negative teens, I enlisted the help of a local seamstress who is going to cut off the dress at the knees and dye it a pinky raspberry color. I am super stoked to have the most expensive cocktail dress ever! But I think it will be awesome. And useful
