Its the dress every girl fantasizes about. But you only get to wear it once.
Or maybe not. One womanbrings out her wedding dress on the anniversary of her wedding every year. This is the most fabulous instance of recycling weve ever seen.
Most girls spend their lives dreaming about both their perfect wedding and their perfect dress. Much like how Charlotte says in Sex and the City, the wedding dress is basically as important as the groom. But unlike is the case with the groom, its not acceptable to be seen in public in your wedding dress after the big day.
Marriage counselor and dating coach Samantha Burns was so in love with her wedding dress, she came up with the idea to re-wear it each year on the day of her wedding.
As my husband and I wrapped up our wedding celebration, I did not want to take off my dress. I had looked forward to the day for so long, and couldnt believe in a matter of hours, it was over. It was in that moment that I turned to my husband and told him that I intended to wear my wedding dress for every anniversary as long as I could fit in it!
On their first anniversary, Samantha took her dress (and husband) on a week-long getaway. It seems she was determined to perform all the vacation activities while sporting her gown.
If youve ever wonderedwhat it looks like to play golf in a wedding dress, look no further:
And Samantha isnt worried about a little wear and tear.
Its collected some stains on the bottom, but I much prefer this than keeping it in a pristine box that will never see the light of day, or my husbands adoring eyes. I smile when I walk past it, the light catching the sparkles, as if its winking at me, saying, Ill see you next year!
The relationship expert has five reasons why every bride should re-wear her wedding dress:
- To get your moneys worth
- Fitness motivation to keep fitting into it
- To rekindle romance
- To create new memories
- To feel like a celebrity for the evening
I cant help but wonder what the self-confessed love experts husband makes of all of this
