How to Repurpose Your Bridal Gown After the Event

This story will show you how to upcycle your wedding dress into a cherished keepsake or gift.

Christening Gown

If you know you are going to have children, then you could save your wedding dress for your baby and have it turned into a christening gown.


Save pieces of the lace or some of the embellishments from your dress and have them set into jewellery.

Earrings from Wedding Dress Lace

As well as pendants, you can also have earrings made out of small cuttings from your wedding dress or veil.

Tote Bag

Turning your wedding dress into a tote bag (or several!) is a great way to turn your dress into something that you can get a lot of use out of and get to see every day.

You could turn your dress into a beautiful quilt. You might need to add some extra fabric to do it, but this could be a beautiful project that will make a quilt for you to treasure for years to come.

Memory Quilt

Use plain materials for the base of your cushion, and then decorate the pillows with the trim and embellishments from your dress for a beautiful finish.
