Hands up who’s been married before? Keep that hand up if you’ve ever worn your wedding dress again?
Now, clearly I can’t tell whether you’ve put up your hand or not but I’m going out on an internet bridal limb here and guessing that there would be few hands waving around in the air.
I’ve been married twice. I was naive the first time (and not just about the dress). The second time I knew better (and not just about the dress).
I knew there was little chance that once that dress went to the drycleaners, only to come home in a box, that it would stay in the box.
It wasn’t that I’d gone the full 2004 meringue. It’s just that, well, the dress was white. And formal. And bridal formal. Now, if it were black or red, it would be a whole other story and I would have squeezed into that dress every year since.
