Bride Cuts Up Wedding Dress The Day After Wedding And Shows What 17 Small Pieces Can Do

Although we may have many important days in our life, the wedding day is always going to be near the top of the list. It is an exciting time that is full of happiness and of course, a lot of planning that goes into it in advance. We want everything to be perfect, from the trip to the ceremony all the way down to the flowers that we carry down the aisle. The wedding reception also gets a lot of attention but in the end, we are just looking to walk away with a special memory. That would include plenty of pictures and the wedding dress that we will never wear again.

If you have a wedding dress, where is it right now? More than likely, you had it professionally cleaned and it is now stored away in an area in hopes that somebody in your family will someday wear it for nostalgic reasons. There are other brides, however, who decide that something else needs to be done with the dress. They give it to an organization that sells it to those who are not able to afford a dress of their own. It might even be modified into a different type of dress!

Justi Boroff had a beautiful wedding dress but she decided not to keep it in a closet somewhere. She decided that she wanted to make the best use of it and she came up with an idea worth considering.

She took her beautiful wedding gown and cut it into pieces but it was for a good cause.

We often think about the wedding dress when we consider the unity that we have with our significant other. It is actually the relationship that makes a difference, however, not the wedding gown that we choose to wear. What this woman decided to do was to pack the dress up and ship it to a grandmother in Colorado named Sandi Fasano. This woman ended up cutting the dress into smaller pieces.

“I sent it off earlier this year to be made into angel gowns for babies that don’t make it home from the hospital and I’ll be donating them to the NICU at Vanderbilt. Seventeen little gowns were made from my dress and as beautiful as they are, I pray they are never needed.”

She said that she had difficulty cutting up a wedding dress the first time that she did it. She took a beautiful wedding gown and cut it into pieces.

What she was doing with the dress was something that nobody had considered doing before. She takes the wedding gown and uses the pieces to help ease the pain of those who have lost a child.

“The last thing a family needs to do is go to a toy store and find doll clothes.”

Sandi had learned about what parents went through when their babies were born and then a funeral gown was needed. She founded the Front Range Angel Gowns and it has been operational since 2015.

“Because I have 7 beautiful grandchildren and in a perfect world, without loss, there would be more.”

It sometimes still surprises her when women donate their wedding gowns. Some of them have lost a child so they understand the pain those parents are experiencing. Others are just kind individuals that are interested in helping others. The dress that was given by Justi made 17 of those Angel gowns for others.

Another woman told this story in the news and decided to start her own organization, Angel Gowns by Connie.

“Thank you to Rhonda for her generous donation of her wedding gown. The Angel Gowns shown were made from Rhonda’s donation in memory of her niece who would have celebrated her birthday today, however, is an Angel in heaven.”
