Upcycle Your Wedding Dress or Veil

It’s that time of year; love is in the air! Wedding season is in full force, and with a newlywed and two engaged girls of our own here at Sweaty Bands Headquarters, we are LOVING everything wedding-related. Whether you are eagerly anticipating your big day or wedding season has you reminiscing, the excitement that surrounds the day you become a Mrs. can’t be denied! There’s the flowers, the cake, and the diamond ring, but we can all agree, other than the love between the two of you, there is nothing more stunning than the bride herself on that day! Her dress, her veil, everything is simply breathtaking. But after that wonderful day has come and gone, what becomes of that gorgeous dress, that elegant veil? Some get stored away, never to be seen again. We have the perfect solution for Sweaty Bands customers, whether you are a newlywed, or have many beautiful anniversaries under your belt, you can preserve your wedding dress or veil material on a custom Sweaty Band! Sweaty Bands customer Kayla sent in her veil to have Sweaty Bands made for herself and her bridesmaids. [Um talk about an ah-dorable gift idea!!] Not only did she look stunning on her wedding day in her beautiful lace scalloped veil, but now she can think of that special day every time she wears her custom Sweaty Band!

Doesn't she look amazing?!

Kayla: “I absolutely love the bands Sweaty Bands made for me! This was the best option for me to preserve my veil because I'm a big believer in upcycling and being resourceful. Although I also love keepsakes in memory boxes, it made perfect sense to be able to convert my veil into something I could wear too, getting the best of both worlds! Now I can feel as elated when I wear my Sweaty Bands veil as I did on my wedding day!” Kayla Veil SB
A 1" style for the Bride turned out gorgeous.

1.5" styles for her bridesmaids. Such a sweet way to thank your girls for being part of your big day!

Our own Director of Business Development, Danielle, got married in December and she also wanted to preserve her special day in a unique way. Using the lace from her dress that was cut off during alterations, a custom Sweaty Band was made that will forever remind Danielle of her day and her beautiful wedding dress.

Danielle: “I have been holding onto the clippings from my wedding dress fittings wondering how I could turn them into something that will always help me remember the most special day of my life. Every time I wear this Sweaty Band, I instantly think of a moment from my wedding day- from seeing my husband for the first time in my dress, to dancing with my Dad at our reception and even my veil falling off in the middle of our ceremony! I wish I could wear my wedding dress every day to feel the way I did that day…so this Sweaty Band is the next best thing!” Bridal Veil Danielle Band - Edited
We love the lace detail from Danielle's dress!

Now she can wear her wedding dress any time!

Creating a custom Sweaty Band allows you to be as creative as you want to be! We strive to give you exactly what you’re envisioning with the high quality you’ve come to expect from us. With the option of using material from your veil or your dress and picking a velvet color, the sky's the limit! You can’t really wear your dress or veil again [trying it on again from time to time is totally normal though, right?], but you can wear a little piece of it every time you wear your custom Sweaty Band! We are thrilled to be able to help women hold on to a piece of that amazing experience and share the Sweaty Bands love. If you’re interested in hearing more about custom wedding Sweaty Bands, drop us a little note at customize@sweatybands.com. We’d love to make you a one of a kind creation as gorgeous as you!
