One common occasion that must take place in Nigerian every weekend is a Nigerian wedding, and for every weeding of course we must have a bride who will mostly be accompanied by her brides maids.
Brides almost always tend to forget that even though it’s their wedding and their wedding gown is a one in a lifetime dress, their bridesmaid dresses should be more conventional to enable them wear again and again. But since it’s their beautiful wedding day, everything has to evolve around them and they should probably get everything they want, just the way they want it.
weddings are so rampant in Nigeria this days that most ladies being bride’s maid have to buy a minimum of 5 dress in a year, and this dresses we are certain don’t come cheap. but the question begs, what do you do about the dress after the wedding?
for some people, they tend to stuff the dress in their travel duffle bag and then unpack it and store it way back to the back of their closet. Only to be seen again when they decide to finally do some Spring-cleaning.
That shouldn’t be the case anymore has I have some useful tip for you on how to reuse your beautiful bridesmaid dresses.
Snip and Lift
Sometimes, the dress in its original just won’t cut it. could be due to the length or an overbearing appliqué, a trip to a seamstress can turn the most eccentric bridesmaid dress into something a little more wearable. For longer dresses, bringing the hemline up can result in a perfect go-to for cocktail parties and special events. For the busier dresses, the careful removal of voluminous sleeves and large, floral additives can make even the worse dress exponentially better.
Repeat it at a wedding:
Style that stunning dress with light accessories or nude pumps and wear it to a wedding when you are a wedding guest.
You’ll make a fraction of what you paid back by selling it to places like that sells used cloths, thereare plenty of them online such as Jiji.com.
Give them away for free
Either ask your friends or post a dress you want to give away on social media and see if anyone is in need of that style or color dress. Lend them out – or if you’re extra desperate to get rid of them don’t ask for it back
Like any good outfit, styling is key. A treasured jacket or sophisticated hat can bring the right amount of personality to any dress. To edge up a shorter dress in a softer hue, try a denim or leather jacket. Flowing maxi dress in saturated tones pair well with wide brim hats and stylish fedoras.
