Wedding Dress Remix

weddingdressa

I wasn't lying when I told you I would style my wedding dress for everyday wear by the end of the month!  So naturally, I waited until the last day to do it.  When I decided to wear a short wedding dress, I knew I wanted to buy something that could be worn more than once.  I've heard so many stories of women who wear their dress once, get it cleaned and put in a pretty box so it never sees the light of day again.  That's just not me!  Luckily, Ruche had the perfect dress that I could wear to the courthouse and beyond :)

Dress- Ruche
Belt- c/o August Wrinkle
Shoes- Forever 21
Necklace- Forever 21

I thought wearing a bright colored belt and printed flats would be a great way to dress the lace down.  The fact that I'm not wearing a massive petticoat underneath really helps differentiate my wedding look from my everyday look too.  What do you think?  If you'd like to see how I wore this dress to my wedding, click HERE.
 
Today also marks the two year anniversary of little Paczki's arrival.  I can't believe it's been two years since we adopted our little blue chihuahua!  He and Tommy are the lights of our life and I seriously couldn't imagine us without them.  There sure would be a lot less cuteness in the house!

  1. Oh, I love remix so much! The belt is adorable and it is great for everyday wear.

    I was very torn about whether to factor in whether I could re-wear the dress when dress shopping.

  3. This is such a great idea!! I love the idea of being able to re-wear your wedding dress! I also think the design of the lace is divine. :)

  4. I love that you can wear your wedding dress after the wedding. What great memories it will have every time you wear it.

    The yellow belt is a nice touch.

  6. I think it's so fun that you styled the dress for everyday! The lace is gorgeous. I'm hoping to cut my wedding dress into cocktail length so I can re-wear it.

  7. I think it's such a great idea to get a wedding dress that can be appropriate for everyday! That's why I want a cute white lacy cocktail dress for when I eventually get married :) I love the way you styled it too with the blue striped flats and yellow belt, it compliments the pretty lace.

  8. This dress is perfect. I can't believe how different it looks from your wedding to real life. It was a seriously wonderful choice. I've never understood the expensive/never worn again dresses. (Same for bridesmaids -- you should see the HIDEOUS thing I have hangin' in my parents closet from a wedding. NO NO NO.) Also adorable shoes and I love the change of scenery!

  19. I love it! The dress is absolutely beautiful. It looks so light and comfortable. Just seems kind of soft and summery. I bet it would look good with bright coloured petticoats or shift under it as well.

  20. Oh my goodness, this looks like a completely different dress! This was so smart of you, I never understand how women can spend thousands of dollars on a dress to wear once. It's the same reason why I don't spend money on Halloween costumes and why I insisted on getting on $40 vintage dress for the one prom I went to. This dress is just so darling and the bright accessories make it look perfect for everyday wear! Great job remixing this, Ashley!

  21. GORGEOUS!! I absolutely LOVE the intricate lace design on your dress. The fact that you went with a more casual dress for your wedding is awesome too. Look at how versatile it is! Definitely a dress to remember and one that you'll get a lot of wear out of.

  31. I would hate to wear any item of clothing just once, especially if you pay a hefty chunk of money for it! Your dress is gorgeous and I love how you styled it too.
    P.S.: Dogs rule!! I can't imagine my life without mine, period.

  38. I love how you wore the dress for an everyday look! I totally agree with you about wearing dresses more than once which is why i'm trying to find a prom dress that I can wear for everyday :) Anyway, LOVE your cute stripe flats and the bow belt is awesome.

  43. If one is to wear their wedding dress more than once, as it SHOULD be worn, You are amazing in doing so! I wore mine twice and then donated it so it won't yellow in my closet or something and so someone else can put it to good use.
