Repurposing your wedding dress: Survey Results

Over the past few weeks we have had many brides and brides-to-be take part in our ‘Repurposing Your Wedding Dress Survey‘ – Thank you to every single one of you who took part! The results have been really interesting and we wanted to share with you all.

As part of our sustainability series we want to encourage and support our brides to rewear, restyle and repurpose their wedding dress. We offer an in house post wedding alteration service to adapt and rework your dress into something you can enjoy time and time again.

Alongside this we will be teaming up with the lovely Apee, Disha and Yukti founders of D.A.Y Boutique to show you some fun, achievable and wearable outfits for your wedding dress post wedding. Watch this space!
