It’s the classic question every bride asks herself when buying a wedding dress: “Is it worth spending that much on a dress I’ll only wear once?”

One bride found the solution: she decided to make the most of it wear hers again every year on her wedding anniversary.

MEET THE BRIDES WHO DON’T WEAR MAKEUP ON THEIR WEDDING DAY

Relationship counsellor and dating coach Samantha Burns couldn’t bear to take off her wedding dress at the end of her big day, so she turned to her husband and told him she intended to wear it again on each anniversary… as long as it still fitted!

I told my husband that as long as I can still fit into my dress (fitness motivation 😉), I'll be wearing it each year on our anniversary and doing fun things in it that we enjoy as a couple! Last year it was golf, pancakes, and a candy shop in Cape Cod…this year we are currently in an Uber off to a surprise date in Boston! 👰🏻🏌💕 . @taylormadegolf @callawaygolf @titleist new bridal line!? . . . #marriedlife #mrandmrs #marriage #weddingdress #golf #weddinganniversary #relationshipgoals #marriagegoals #trulove #soulmates #couplesofinstagram #happywifehappylife #hubbywifey #husbandandwife #happycouple #wedding #couplesgoals #fitness #fitspiration #coupleswhogolf #swolemates #boston

Year two involved a sunset dinner cruise around Boston harbour, and Samantha hopes to take her dress on many more adventures, including a zip line ride.

Naturally, her dress isn’t in its original pristine collection, having gathered a few stains along the way, but she is the first to admit she’d rather that than it be hidden away in a box and never be looked at by her husband’s “adoring eyes”.
