It’s not something that you necessarily think about before your big day...or even on your big day.

When you getting married here at Val Vista Lakes in Gilbert, AZ, what you’re going to do with your wedding dress after the wedding is probably the last thing on your mind.

But, after the wedding, after the receptions, after the honeymoon, and after everything has calmed down...you’ll began to wonder what to do with that wedding dress.

I’ll be honest, most of us seal it up and it hangs in the closet for an eternity, or it gets packed away into the attic. I mean, when are you ever going to wear it again? Probably never, so what do you do?

Today, let’s take a look at how you can hold on to that wedding dress in a way that will help you remember the majesty of your wedding day…

Put it on Display: You can literally use shadow-boxing for anything and everything. I’m a huge fan of remembering special moments with a shadow box. Here we have an interesting way to preserve the memory of your wedding with your dress, maybe some flowers, photos, and anything else that reminds you of that amazing day…

Wear it Forever: Another interesting way to keep your wedding dress and the memory of that amazing Gilbert day with you is to wear it...literally..against your heart.

Make a Quilt: You can turn almost anything into a quilt, and, if done right, it can be one of the most beautiful accessories in your home. Your wedding dress is actually the perfect material to make a beautiful quilt…

Make Lingerie: Did you know that a professional seamstress can actually turn your wedding dress into lingerie?!

Trash the Dress: Of course, you can always just go crazy and trash the dress...getting some amazing wedding photos in the process…
