Bride Loved Wedding Dress So Much She Refused To Take It Off For Days
Most brides end up spending hundreds (or even thousands!) on a dress that they'll only wear for eight hours. It's hardly the most economical thing you'll ever buy, is it?
But one bride looking to get more bang for her buck was Hannah Webb - who decided to keep her dress on for two days after she said 'I do'.
Hannah, from Swindon, Wiltshire, wed partner Joe Webb in a ceremony in Paphos, Cyrus in late August, and wore a £650 floaty v-neck dress complete with a train for the big day.
However when it came to taking it off, the 22-year-old wasn't having any of it.
On the evening of her nuptials, the mum-of-two took her dress for a dip in the sea and in the swimming pool, refusing to be without it.
it didn't stop there: the next day, Hannah decided to go parasailing in her dress.
"There's a lot of pressure with a wedding dress in how it needs to be perfect, and kept neat and how you need to store it in a box in your loft for 25 years afterwards," explained Hannah.
We just didn't want it to be like that. We wanted it to be really fun and that's why [I went parasailing in it]. I spent a lot of money on this dress so I wanted to get my wear out of it.
"It felt lush walking down the aisle. I felt amazing. I loved it. That's why I wanted to wear it again."
Speaking of flying through the air in her beloved now-not-so-white dress, Hannah said: "It was a spur of the moment decision. I saw some people parasailing and I thought 'I'm going to do that'.
"When we were up there it was so quiet. We've got two little ones so we haven't experienced peace and quiet like that in a long time. It was just us two up there and it was lush.
"The train was just floating behind like a trail. It was amazing."
The bride claimed the dress was so grubby after her pool and sea escapades, her aunt had to clean it off in the bath tub.
Hannah now plans to have it professionally cleaned and sent off to charity to be made into clothes for deceased children to be buried in.
"It's really nice because it's not worth storing it in a box in the loft if it can't go to good use. If they can make any little dresses out of the material that is left then I think it goes to a good cause," said Hannah.
Hannah, if there was anyone to convince us to go parasailing in our wedding dress, it's you.
