Dress History

“You are leaving your dress?”

My wife of 12 years packed up her belongings in 2009 and moved out of our home. After her car was loaded I couldn’t help but notice that a single item remained in her section of our closet, her wedding dress.

“You forgot something” I told her.

She replied “And what’s that?”.

“Your wedding dress”, I said.

“Yeah, I am not taking that” was her response.

“What do you expect me to do with it?” I asked.

And to that she replied, “Whatever the $%^@# you want”.

And this is what I did…..

After my brother, sister-in-law, and parents made some offbeat suggestions for what I should do with the dress at dinner one night I decided to see exactly what it was capable of.  We made a list and started putting the dress to work.  I eventually decided to share my pictures on a blog and with the help of suggestions from visitors here I have used my ex-wife’s wedding dress in over 120 different ways.  Approximately 80 of them were featured on this site and the book I wrote, 101 Uses For My Ex-Wife’s Wedding Dress, contains 40 new applications.  This dress is unbelievable and probably is capably of carrying out many more applications.  My marriage didn’t last forever but this dress just might.
