Fortunately when I got my gown alterations I asked the seamstress to return the extra fabric taken off from the hem. Now I am incorporating my wedding dress into my son's christening outfit without cutting my gown!

Other keepsake ideas: incorporating your gown fabric into your daughters wedding dress, creating a ring pillow to be used at family weddings, incorporating into a quilt or pillow, and incorporating into an outfit you can wear on your anniversary. The possibilities are endless so when you get your alterations don't forget to plan ahead!
