Soon to be mum, Claire, who resides in Brisbane has come up with the PERFECT solution to using her wedding dress!
Taking to Facebook to share her idea, Claire says she loved her wedding dress, but worried it was unrealistic that she would be able to pass it down or get another use out of an item with such sentimental value.
The solution? Transform the dress into a bassinet cover!
"I’m a sucker for sentimental value and love family items being handed down so, way back in 2015, as a newlywed, I decided I would eventually have my dress transformed into a bassinet cover," she said in a Facebook post.
"Maybe, just maybe, any child of mine (daughters OR sons) would one day like to have their own new bubs snuggle down to sleep in it."
"Then, came this pregnancy! I searched high and low for a cream coloured bassinet so my wedding lace wouldn’t look dirty and got in touch with Jeannie, a Christchurch woman who owns and operates a bridal and alterations business not far from home on the Southside of Brisbane."
What an incredible transformation! This is definitely an idea we'll be taking on.
