Would You Re-Purpose Your Wedding Dress? //< Would You Re-Purpose Your Wedding Dress? //

One thing I absolutely delight in: I would not change one single thing from my wedding day. Not the flowers, not the location, not the food and wine selections, and certainly not the groom. I’m proud to say that I am still in love with the wedding dress I chose—simple, possibly unremarkable, yet oh-so-perfect for my taste. Plus, it had pockets.

Since I don’t have $150 lying around that I don’t need, that won’t be happening. I’ve lost 90 pounds since the wedding so there’s no way to turn it into a regular dress and I’m tired of it taking up space in the closet so pillows it is! :)
