Newlyweds: What To Do With Your Bridal Lingerie
The most special day of your life is almost here and you already have the perfect lingerie set for the event. After you’ve uttered your vows and the wedding bells have chimed, you might not know what to do with your bridal lingerie. We’ve got you covered.
Here’s a speedy guide to help you make the right choice for you.
Keep Your Lingerie As a Memento
Your bridal lingerie is a special part of your wedding day and there’s no reason that you should forget that. One of the things that many women do with their lingerie is keep it long after they have walked down the aisle. If you’re making a ‘memories box’ with many of the elements of your wedding day inside it, you could include your lingerie in there too. That means that you will have it forever and can look back on it as a memento.
One of the things that you have to remember is that you will want to keep the material in good condition. Washing your bridal lingerie first, wrapping it in acid-free paper, and storing it in a cool, dry place is one of the best ways to make sure that you get this right.
Recycle Your Bridal Lingerie
On the other hand, some people are not sentimental when it comes to bridal lingerie and may want to do something useful with it. One of the most charitable things you can do is recycle your bridal lingerie after the big day has come and gone. So, where should you get started and what places take donations?
Luckily, there are loads of charities where you can donate your bras in new or gently worn condition. Each of these places offers a great deal back to the world and helps those in need. Doing a little research in this area means that you should be able to find the right place to donate yours.

Try Upcycling Your Lingerie
Looking for a smart and crafty idea? We might have just the thing. Upcycling is a massive trend these days and there’s no reason that you shouldn’t try it for yourself. One of the greatest things you can do with your bridal lingerie is turn it into something new. When you invest in a high-quality piece, you can be sure that the fabric will be high-end.
Enlist the help of a seamstress to deconstruct and recreate something from your lingerie. You could have them make the bra into a small cushion cover, a purse, or even something else. Take the time to think about what you want from the piece and go to an expert with some ideas. They will tell you what is and is not possible and help you along the way.
Additionally, you could dye it a different color at home or have it professionally dyed. A new color could breathe new life into your bridal lingerie and make it a special part of your everyday wardrobe.
Wear It For Special Occasions
The last option you have is to wear the bra just like you would any other piece of lingerie. There’s no hard and fast rule that says you have to wear your bridal lingerie only once. If you’ve fallen head over heels in love with the set, you should wear it whenever you feel the need. Be sure to wash it with care and make sure that you store it well.
Figuring out what to do with your bridal lingerie after the big day has flown by can be a difficult feat, but that doesn’t mean that you should let it trouble you. Whatever you decide will always be the right decision because you chose it. Take the time to think about your options here and do what feels right for you. That’s the only way to go.
