Preserve the Memories
Do you still have your wedding dress in a protective case/box, gathering dust in the loft or taking up precious room in your wardrobe? Have you thought about wedding dress recycling?
These days, the price of wedding dresses are extortionate, so why leave yours hanging around, never to be seen? Recycling is a hot topic, and is great for the environment – helping to reduce your carbon footprint. Many people spend thousands of pounds on their wedding day, but only have a wedding ring, a dried buttonhole flower or a photo album to physically remind them of the grand occasion – two of which are probably in a cupboard somewhere, out of sight.
At Infinity Keepsakes, we can help, by turning beautiful gowns into stunning christening gowns, or keepsake gifts which can be displayed as a permanent special memory.
Traditionally, the next major event after a wedding is a christening! Christening gowns are worn by all genders, and can be passed down the generations. We can make stunning christening gowns for you to use for your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and beyond…
Think about it. You spend what seems like forever, finding the wedding dress you love – so you already know you are going to love it in a mini-version after wedding dress recycling! You can choose from the traditional long gown or ankle length with short or long sleeves. Send us a picture of styles you like and leave the rest to us.
Our christening gowns come displayed in a magnetic white box, with acid-free tissue to keep it clean and safe.
Why stop at a christening gown, when we can make matching accessories when wedding dress recycling? Take advantage of the moment by adding a headband, a bonnet or a personalised bib. Personalised christening bibs come complete with up to 4 initials which are embroidered on.
Polite notice: We do recommend that you get your wedding dress dry cleaned before posting it to us, as we cannot be held responsible for any staining from the original dress appearing on the new products.
Wedding Dress Recycling – Wedding Memory Bear
In addition to christening gowns, we can also make other keepsake gifts, such as our attractive wedding memory bears. They come in both 12” and 14” sizes and can include personalisation with your names on one paw, and the date of your wedding on the other, and/or a personalised heart. Display it in your bedroom, or on your favourite chair.
We will always endeavour to incorporate the special details of your dress (such as lace, embroidery, crystal detailing and any patterned fabrics) into the design. If there are any specific parts you wish us to use/not use, then please let us know when ordering. Our handmade wedding memory bears are handmade to a high standard, with wooden button joints and quality construction throughout.
Please be aware that although these are suitable for gifts to family/friends, they are not toys and shouldn’t be given to children under 14.
Wedding Dress Recycling – Memory Cushions
For other unique ways to create memories/keepsakes, we handmake wedding dress memory cushions. Cushions can be personalised if you wish, and will look so pretty on a sofa or on your bed as decoration. Each cushion is unique to you, using different parts of your wedding dress to create a timeless piece. Our wedding cushions are approximately 40 x 40cm. We use a mix of larger and smaller squares on the cushions to incorporate the larger areas of details from the wedding dress.
You could even give these memory cushions as gifts to family members. Please note that wedding dress memory cushions should only be hand washed in cold water and hung on an airer or washing line to dry.
Wedding Dress Recycling – Memory Blankets
Wedding dress memory blankets come in 2 sizes, a bed runner 50cm x 170cm, or standard blanket 95cm x 110cm. They can also be personalised with embroidery to make it extra unique. These blankets are one-of-a-kind, and make an amazing anniversary gift or a memory keepsake. Each blanket comes with a polar fleece fabric backing and border for comfort, should you choose to use it. Please let us know when ordering, if there are any particular pieces of your wedding dress you wish us to incorporate. We may use a mixture of small and large squares to incorporate all the special details from your wedding dress.
Please note, memory blankets should only be hand washed in cold water and hung on an airer or washing line to dry.
If you like the sound of our products, but are finding it difficult to choose your favourite, then why not buy a bundle and make the most of your wedding dress recycling? We have a wedding dress memory cushion & memory bear bundle or a wedding dress memory bear, memory cushion and memory blanket bundle.
Wedding Dress Pendants
If you would like to keep a piece of your wedding dress close to your heart at all times, our wedding dress pendants are a classy way of ensuring you have the memory with you always. Pendants are 25mm in size and come in heart shaped, square or round, attached to a 45cm curb silver plated chain. We would need a piece of dress approximately 15cm x 15cm to make these pendants which would be encased in a glass cabochon.
Here is just one of the recent reviews we have received from a delighted customer.
“Just letting you know I have received the christening dress bonnet and bib this morning and took a video of myself opening up the parcel lifting each item out and sent it to my daughter who has just rang me in tears. Tears of utter happiness and overwhelmed just how beautiful they are and to pass on her thanks to you and your beautiful work we are both delighted. My daughter will be collecting it this week and will be trying it on baby Jennnifer. We will be forwarding photos from the day 7th May to you. Absolutely amazing a big heart felt thank you”
