YEP! This coming Saturday, June 15th, 2013....I will run the color run 5k in my wedding dress!!! I knew there must be a holy "higher calling" reason why it wouldn't sell on Craigslist!

There was something incredibly theraputic and zen-like about butchering my wedding dress in my kitchen naked imbetween fittings!!!

Hey! Another PRO of being single and living alone!! My 10 month old was in bed!!

BRING ON THE COLOR!!!!! (Kinda am hoping the XWH and MOW show up to this race! I might even do a pagent wave in their direction!! )

Posts like this I really wish we had a love button.

Pics would be great.. if you can.

OH! I am SOOOO getting pics in that dress!!! In fact.... I might even take a flute glass and some ginger ale with me so that my pics look like I'm making a toast before (and AFTER!)

I'm gonna be the prettiest darn bride....AGAIN... and the funny ironic part is.... that it will be a colorful dress when its all over... just like my mouth was when my marriage was over after the A.....very colorful!!

I didn't even have a moment of pause when I chopped into that big fluffy dress either.... and I thought I would! I "almost" heard the theme music from the movie psycho.. (And... I just can't seem to understand why I'm still single!!! )

Ah well... I'm having too much fun to be in a relationship right now!!! Bring on the colored powder!!

GREAT Idea! I ran a Spartan Sprint obstacle course race in Atlanta in March, and a girl did it in her wedding dress! She did it to get over the loss and betrayal of her divorce.

That is completely AWESOME!!!!!!

persevere posted 6/9/2013 22:26 PM

Shelly, that is an AMAZING idea!!! PLEASE post pics!!

And I hope XWH and MOW see you too - lol!

I've thought about selling mine but now that Target is going to have a $99 selection of wedding gowns, I think I could make better use of it another way.

YES!!! I know a guy who talked about doing this with his ex wife's wedding dress that she left behind

Please post pics! I ran my second color run this weekend. Love them.

That sounds like so much fun !

Great use of a used dress with no meaning.

Love it!

She11ybeanz posted 6/10/2013 07:24 AM

Thanks ya'll!!! I can't wait to run in it!! I had fun cookie-cutting the crap out of it too with my scissors to conform to a cute design that I could run in....short in the front and longer in the back! I'm even gonna wear my cathedral veil....but I cut it in half so its not too long!

1This is such a great idea, I might have to steal that for next year. You go girl

Helen of Troy posted 6/10/2013 10:59 AM

Wow! You go! This is SUCH a great idea. I was posted recently looking for wedding dress suggestions in D&S forum.

She11ybeanz posted 6/10/2013 13:23 PM

Its gonna be a blast! I can't wait!!! Talk about an awesome memory!!! hash running group has talked about having a "Burn the Dress" hash...and I will hare the run in my wedding dress and then we shall burn it afterwards.... (and yes...I will bring a change of clothes... they aren't THAT lucky! )
