The wedding dress is a garment that most women only wear once in their lives and then keep as a souvenir for the rest of the time.
Although it is also true that dresses can be reused: in some families they have been passed down for generations, adapting them to the fashion of that moment for each particular case, but even so, most of the time they end up in a box in the closet. .
This is the reason why many women are now donating their dresses for a great alternative that is becoming more and more successful.
Instead of storing the dresses in boxes, these women donate the dresses to ‘Angel Gowns’. They create beautiful little dresses for newborn babies.
But the idea was so successful, and the dresses were so special that little by little they were used for those babies who did not manage to survive, giving their family a reason to smile.
A young woman named Justi Bates used Facebook to share an important message.
‘Today I received my wedding dress back. I sent it out a few months ago and they have turned it into gorgeous baby dresses that didn’t come home from the hospital. I am going to donate these dresses, in total 17 have been made from my wedding dress and they are all really beautiful’.
They are designed for a tragic end, to bury newborns as handsome as possible.
At such a young age, a baby does not usually have many clothes, so families feel special and important when they are given these dresses.
Many Neonatal Intensive Care Units now have these dresses so that they can be given to families and save them having to choose some clothes for the little ones.
These tiny dresses can be made from any material, but most are made from recycled wedding dresses.
The materials used for wedding dresses help to enhance the importance of babies in the lives of families.
For brides, reusing their wedding dress in this way has become a very simple choice.
And you, would you do the same with your wedding dress? You can leave us your opinion in the comments.
