Imagine how great it would be to wear your wedding dress on your 1st anniversary? What a quirky way to recreate your special day!

If you like the idea of the wedding dress that keeps on giving, how do you choose one that does just that long after all the cake has been eaten and the last guests have left the dancefloor?  #TeamNOWE came up with a few ideas.
