Happy New Years Ladies! 2013 is here and I will be in Maui Hawaii next year for our 15th Anni...
So I plan on taking my wedding dress to get preserved very soon. I just haven't had the time to drop it off! I find it hard to let it go, even if just for a few days. =( It's amazing how attached I have become to one piece of clothing. At first thought 'it's just a dress' but after wearing it on my wedding day I quickly realized it symbolizes so much more. Especially to me.
After my dress is preserved, my dad is building a shadow box frame for me to display it in, I plan to display it most likely in our bedroom, my Dad is installing a light inside to shine down and/or up on the dress. It was totally his idea and I thought it was amazing! I couldn't see just hanging my dress up in the back of my closet, or leaving it in the box it will come back from being preserved in. It's a beautiful dress and I want it to be displayed! I goggled this and was unsuccessful in finding much information, I do know I want my whole dress to be displayed, not folded.
I will keep you ladies posted and be sure to update on the final product when my dad is finished!
How are you ladies planning to display your wedding dress after your big day has passed? Are you selling your dress? If so I'm curious to hear about how you are able to do that! Especially excited to hear back from you brides that are already married because I think we all feel differently AFTER our wedding is over about our dresses!
