Woman Wears Her Wedding Dress Every Weekend for One Year

 

After 54-year-old Dawn Winfield-Hunt married 54-year-old Steven, she could not bring herself to store her wedding dress and “never seeing it again,” writes Ellen Scott of the U.K.’s highest-circulating newspaper Metro. The gown was purchased from a charity shop and she decided to maximize its use by creating a list of things she would do while wearing her gown. 

Dawn has sailed, done a charity color run, gone paddleboarding, attended a music festival, and accomplished her weekly food shop while wearing her wedding gown. According to Dawn, Steven now finds it “odd” if she wore a top and jeans during weekends. All the things Dawn has done made her dress dirty, but she doesn’t mind it, as she plans to wear it “every weekend for the first year of being married.”

When doing the color run, she did not think twice to have her dress caked with different colors. Dawn recalls, “Other people running couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw me in my wedding dress, they were shocked to see me crawling on the floor and covered in multicolored paint.” Dawn initially did not plant to wear her dress many times after the wedding. However, she decided to do so during a barbeque with friends. And they loved the idea! Since then, Dawn wore her wedding dress every weekend.

Dawn justifies, “The dress was so beautiful I didn’t want to box it up like I did when I first got married many years ago.” So far, Dawn washed her dress twice, and it did not help remove all the stains and marks it sustained from all her adventures. “I have started organizing a charity ball next year and that will be the bucket list finale and then I will finally box it up with hundreds of memories,” she shares. Dawn also plans to sign up for a GoFundMe account for people from other countries, as well as donate money for the homeless and mental health charity.
