Woman Wears Her Wedding Dress Most Days To ‘Get Her Money’s Worth’

We are all aware that a wedding dress can cost a huge amount.. and it’s only worn for one day… it’s kind of crazy isn’t it?

Well this bride, Dawn Winfield-Hunt has taken to wearing hers on a regular basis.. usually to do her household chores. Maybe that’s a bit strange? Or is it genius?

The bride from the Isle of White got married recently and is definitely making the most out of her £300 gown. She wears it when doing the food shop.. when she cooks and the list goes on.

Dawn has worn the gown dozens of times already but isn’t stopping anytime soon.

She explained:

“Usually you only get to wear your dress once and then you put it in a box and forget about it”

“But I liked mine and decided to wear it the following day for a BBQ with friends and everyone loved it.”

Dawn has since started a blog to keep people up-to-date on the adventures of her dress, she also added that her son thinks she’s “mental.”

Dawn added:

“Both myself and Steve [her partner], who is a curriculum manager, have been married once before and we thought we would have a bit of fun this time”

“Previously, like most women I put my dress away, never to be seen again but this one is going to have memories.”

“I plan on wearing it every now and then until my first anniversary next year, it will be covered in seaweed, wine stains and probably won’t even be white anymore but I don’t care. I have cooked, cleaned and even done a bit of carpentry in it.”

Dawn, 54, is passionate about sustainability, and her eco-friendly wedding had no plastic. The decorations were handmade and used dried rose petals for confetti and paper flowers.

Dawn purchased her dress from a local charity shop. She added:

“It still had the labels on and was meant to be £1,800, I have definitely got my moneys worth by wearing it on the weekends”

Dawn explained:

“The dress puts a smile on people’s faces, many of which think it is my wedding day and congratulate me as they are passing by in the street.”

“When I arrived at the check out in the supermarket, the lady said she had received a message through her earpiece saying ‘bride in aisle 12’ which is pretty funny.”
