Leslie and I are both avid followers of Manolo for the Brides and their wonderful ideas! That's where I found today's gem: wedding dress paintings.
Everyone has different advice on what to do with your wedding dress after the Big Day; it's often the most expensive piece of clothing you own, particularly for one you'll never wear again. Keep it. Save it for your children. Donate it. Sell it second-hand.
But now there's a new, gorgeous option! For $250-$350, artist Jessica Mandela will create a beautiful painting of your dress and even your bridesmaids dresses! (Or you can even spring for a stunning oil painting!)
This is a gorgeous way to ensure your beautiful dress lives on forever-- if you ask me, I'd get one even if I kept my dress!
