Old new borrowed redo™ recently announced their customized services for creating unique keepsakes from sentimental items like bridal gowns, bridesmaid dresses or any sentimental dress and turns it into beautiful, one-of-a-kind, custom keepsakes like pillows, baby blankets, lingerie and picture frames. They reuse and repurpose very special dresses, creating another very significant item – one that holds even more value because of where the fabric originated.
Lindsey Radoff and Jennifer Manroel, the identical twin sisters, co-owners and designers for ONBR, are changing the way women think of those “one-time dresses.” “We all have dresses that are sitting in our closets – from the dress we wore to our first day of kindergarten to our prom dress to our wedding dress,” says Jennifer Manroel. “We hold onto these dresses because we don’t want to forget that special time.” “Old new borrowed redo™ creates beautiful, custom keepsakes that remind our customers of that important day and can be passed down through generations,” adds Lindsey Manroel Radoff.
Lindsey and Jennifer conceived this idea after Lindsey’s own wedding in 2010. Lindsey, like many brides, was savoring in the memories of her big day while strolling on the beach on her honeymoon and thought of how much she wanted to encapsulate the memory of her wedding day. Also, like many brides, she loved her bridal gown and wanted to preserve it in some way…and so the idea was born.
After all the time and thought that goes into choosing an item like a wedding dress, many brides shudder at the idea of shoving their beautiful dresses into storage. Now ONBR offers an option that many brides never thought was available to them. The process is simple – clients discuss options/ideas with one of the ONBR design consultants, then they ship their gown with a prepaid shipping label sent by ONBR, once the gown is received, concepts are finalized, the customer agreement form is signed, and, in a few weeks, the custom keepsake is shipped to the customer.
The Old new borrowed redo™ team has designed everything from a mother-of-the-bride dress turned into pillows for her grandson’s room, a favorite cocktail dress turned into an evening clutch and sorority t-shirts into custom quilts. Many bridesmaids are redoing the bridesmaid dress they wore in a friend’s wedding and then gifting it to the friend on her wedding anniversary or as a baby gift. They recently had a customer create a ring bearer pillow out of her own wedding dress for her daughter to use in her wedding and her granddaughter to someday use in her wedding. In that way, the ring bearer pillow is something old, something borrowed and even something blue (they finished the ring bearer pillow with blue stitching for the embroidery and initialed the three generations onto the pillow.)
Lindsey and Jennifer are identical twin sisters and both attorneys by trade, who wanted to share this idea with others who may have the same question…what do I do with my wedding dress after my wedding? “We provide a way for clients to hold on in a very tangible way to the memory of one of the biggest, most memorable days of their lives,” Lindsey adds. “Having a constant reminder makes that day even more special.”
