Turn Your Wedding Dress into Holiday Gifts
Holiday gifting is a time-honored tradition, and the most memorial gifts are the ones that take us by surprise. Items that tie us to our family history and those we love are the gifts that we’ll cherish long after the Christmas decorations are packed away for the season.
To create a set of truly one-of-a-kind gift items that your family members will cherish, the holidays are a perfect time to redesign your wedding dress with Unbox the Dress. Our redesign process takes the best fabrics and embellishments from a vintage wedding gown, and gives your dress new life in the form of a collection of one-of-a-kind keepsakes.
So, what are the most popular redesign options we’re seeing this season? We’ve compiled a list of the most popular holiday gifts made from your wedding dress below:
1. Guardian Angel Ornament
These are far and away the most popular design option this year. Ranging from 6-10” in length, they’re the perfect addition to any Christmas tree, although many of our clients keep them out year-round. We love these angels because they end up looking like miniatures of the original gown, and each one is a little bit different.
Plus, many can be created from each gown! One client turned her entire dress into angels – a total of 20! She plans to put them on a tree and surprise her family members by letting each person pick out their favorite.
2. Pillow Collection
From smaller heart-shaped pillows for your little ones, to larger statement pillows perfect for dressing up an adult bedroom – pillows do an excellent job of showcasing the unique qualities of a wedding gown. (We recommend ordering one for yourself as well!)
3. Lace Table Round
The ivory or white satin and pretty lace of a wedding gown makes for a beautiful decoration perfect for any Christmas dinner table. Many of our designs look snowy, light and elegant as we select the prettiest pieces of lace to highlight in the design. Set it out for Christmas dinner, and then give it away to someone special.
Other clients have enjoyed making tutus for their granddaughters to play dress-up! So precious.
