Ways to Enjoy Your Dream Wedding Dress Long After You Tie the Knot

Dye and Redo

Light and white colored gowns allow for an easy color transformation. Silk and satin are the easiest and least costly to dye but for brides who opt for other fabrics such as lace or ornate gowns recoloring your dresses is absolutely doable. While breathing new color into your dream gown we don’t recommend this as a DIY project. While it looks easy on Youtube doing it yourself can result in an uneven or patchy look that is simply not worth the risk.


Give your dress a redo as in alterations. Be creative beyond the hem. Maybe you love the bodice but the skirt portion of your gown is a bit much for a simple hem. You can always have the bodice cut-away and transformed into a statement piece that dresses up your existing wardrobe. You could also keep and hem the skirting portion of your dress for a Sex in the City fashion vibe.

Consider a Two Piece

With pieces, the traditional bridal gown also receives a fresh update. Today's brides take adaptability and re-wearability into account while choosing their wedding attire. Who wouldn't like the opportunity to wear their wedding attire more than once? Tops and skirts are also growing in popularity because of this. You can style them differently and wear them over and again!


With today's brides taking adaptability and re-wearability into account while choosing their wedding attire separates have become a trend that is here to stay. You can avoid the expense of post wedding alterations by going with a two-piece ensemble.

Short and Sweet

Short dresses and intimate weddings both have a long future. The brides who are planning more informal or semi-formal occasions favor these kinds of light, breezy, and lovely dresses. No hems or other additional alternations are needed. The ‘short’ of these dresses are tea-length, midi, and cocktail length.

Suits are Center Stage

Elegant tailored pant suits have made a big entrance on the runways this year and for good reason! They are sleek, sassy and perfect for the fashion forward bride looking to break from tradition. This break from tradition allows for an outfit that will never go out of style.

At a Minimum

Minimalist gown are always on point with their simple and exquisite aesthetic. On your dream day these anything but understated gowns can take center stage or be the perfect backdrop for statement veils and headpieces. Whatever the choice it is always the bride that shine through. These gowns can be worn for years to come as their fabrics and silhouettes go beyond trend.
