Although Lucy Morgan walked down the aisle in a white gown, she now steps out of the house in a green dress instead. Why? Lucy decided that after her divorce. She wanted to use it again. Apparently, she feels that the change in color helps showcase her new growth and her brand new life.
An Annual Event
Some people where their wedding dresses once in their life. However, Catherine O’Nolan makes sure that she wears hers every year on her anniversary. Yes, the wedding dress has been on a plane, used for yard work, and even on a dog walk. Catherine says most people don’t even look.
Rachel Falkner has seen many wedding dresses get cast aside. Now, her gown was starting to turn yellow.

Although many of her friends were shocked, Rachel says she loved the look.
While many of us think that wedding dresses can only have one lease of life, it turns out there are many ways that we can recycle and reuse our gowns. After all, many women have already thought of creative ways to bring theirs back to life.
