with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
My husband and I got married twelve years ago and shortly after returning from our honeymoon, I had my wedding dress dry cleaned and put into a box. (I affectionately refer to it as ‘The Coffin.’) I loved my dress then, and I love it now. The style of dress is one that I tend to lean toward when I purchase any dress (no sleeves, A-line skirt)(sans beading and crinoline).
Some people do a ‘trash the dress’ photography shoot, some people sell their dress through a consignment store, and some (a few friends of mine included) keep the dress hanging in their closet along with their prom dress and an assortment of bridesmaids dresses. Then they have nights where everyone parades in dresses from the closet and have some good laughs.
I, personally, would love to free my dress from its coffin and wear it out on a girls’ night with a group of my friends. There has been rumblings of making that a reality.
What did you do with your wedding dress?
