Samantha Burns has decided to really get the most out of her wedding dress by wearing the floor length gown every year on her wedding anniversary.
When you buy an expensive clothing item, like say a leather jacket, it's possible to justify the cost by figuring out the cost per wear. If you wear it a lot it's totally worth it right?
With a wedding dress, it's generally not possible to do that. You spend a ridiculous amount of money on a dress, you're going to wear once.
Well, this bride wants her money's worth.
"I had looked forward to the day for so long and couldn't believe in a matter of hours it was over," she says. "It was in that moment that I turned to my husband and told him that I intended to wear my wedding dress for every anniversary as long as I could fit in it!"
For the couple’s first anniversary, Burns’ husband surprised her with a week-long trip. "I threw the dress in our car and told him that whatever he had in mind to make sure I could do it sporting my gown," she explains.
Burns ended up playing golf in her wedding gown, making "quite the impression at the driving range".
Followed by an afternoon spent sampling fudge in a candy shop:
And eating chocolate chip pancakes at a casual brunch restaurant all while rocking her expensive wedding gown.
