6. Ask a seamstress to turn your full-length gown into a mini dress or a high-low silhouette. If your dress wasn’t stark white, you can keep it as your go-to dress to wear to weddings in the future. You can also turn the tulle into a skirt.
7. Splatter your gown with faux blood to turn it into a spooky Halloween costume. A dead bride or a zombie bride is the perfect getup for the scariest night of the year!
8. Don’t want to get rid of your gown or can’t bear watching it take on a new form? Throw an annual Wedding Dress Party with your married friends. Dress up in your wedding best, get together with the girls and enjoy lunch or dinner in one of your homes. Make it a co-ed get-together by having the grooms don their tuxedos, too. You’ll get more use out of the gown without saying “goodbye” or watching it get torn to shreds.
