An Isle of Wight bride is getting her money’s worth from her wedding dress – by wearing it to complete a range of fun and random tasks.
Dawn Winfield-Hunt married Steve earlier this month – and has been enjoying wearing the dress around Island.
Dawn reportedly bought her dress for £300 from a local charity shop.
The couple, who have been together for five years, had an eco-friendly wedding with no plastic.
Some of the tasks the 54 year has been spotted doing include shopping and paddle boarding.
Speaking to The Metro, Dawn said:
“Usually you only get to wear your dress once and then you put it in a box and forget about it. But I liked mine and decided to wear it the following day for a BBQ with friends and everyone loved it.
“Previously, like most women I put my dress away, never to be seen again but this one is going to have memories.
“I plan on wearing it every now and then until my first anniversary next year, it will be covered in seaweed, wine stains and probably won’t even be white anymore but I don’t care.
“I have cooked, cleaned and even done a bit of carpentry in it. ‘The dress puts a smile on peoples face, many of which think it is my wedding day and congratulate me as they are passing by in the street.
“I bought my dress from a charity shop, it still had the labels on and was meant to be £1800, I have definitely got my moneys worth by wearing it on the weekends.”
