Sice we are going to Hawaii for our Honeymoon I am thinking of taking our wedding clothes and have our friends who are coming with us (she is a photographer) take a snap of of us jumping into the ocean wearing our wedding day clothing. The dress will be ruined but it could be fun!
Wouldn't you rather donate it to charity or otherwise not waste it?
I kind of like your idea princessofthelake, although it sounds like it might be a lot of effort for the one picture as the clothes will probably be bulky and take up a lot of valuable luggage space.
But it's interesting that doing that might be perceived as wasting it, whereas storing it in a box in a closet for years on end is not. I'm totally not judging that response, HannahGrace, just that it made me think that really, anything other than somehow getting it worn or somehow used again could be considered a waste.
As I mentioned when I started this thread, my dress has been boxed up since 1980, and is not ever going to be worn again unless styles somehow drastically change in my lifetime, which I doubt. I ended up cutting up my veil to sort of dress up a wire mannequin I have in my guest bedroom. I'll try to remember to take a picture and post it.
It was hard to make that first cut but I'm glad I did it. The dress is awaiting some kind of similar fate. I just have to figure out what I want to do with it (probably make some pillows) and how I want to do it.
