Women Try On Their Wedding Dresses Years After Saying 'I Do'

Playing What Happened When These Women Tried on Their Wedding Dresses Years Later

These women are trying on their wedding dresses years after they first said "I do."

Inspired by a recent New York Post story, Inside Edition asked former brides to put their gowns, long since packed away, on again at Kleinfeld Bridal in Manhattan.

"It's really nice to see this come out of the box," one woman, Karen Roberts, said. 

"It still looks the same, I can't wait to try it on," added another, Melissa Clayton. "I've had three kids since then, so fingers crossed."

The gowns are bringing back a lot of memories. 

"When I think back to looking for the dress, it was actually the first dress that I tried on," said Kenyatta Jones-Arietta. 

Marisa Cohen chimed in: "I looked at a lot of dresses and that was the one that was the compromise of what I wanted and what my mom wanted."

Regine Thorpe-Coombs told Inside Edition, "Putting on my wedding dress, stepping on the platform, looking in the mirror for the first time it was beautiful."

Dina Deligiorgis added, "My dress was absolutely not a traditional dress and I think because I'm not in a traditional partnership. My spouse is a woman and we were overjoyed to be making a commitment to each other.”

Some were concerned that their changing bodies might affect the fit. 

Clayton was worried because she had three kids since getting married. 

"I had a baby a month ago, I have not tried on my dress, it might fit but I'm not sure it's gonna look good," Camille Ford said. 

Cohen said, "In 23 years, things move around, so it'll be interesting to see how it works on my body now!" 

Others were just happy to still be alive. 

"At my age you're just happy to be on this side of the earth, so if the dress doesn't fit, I don't care," laughed Carol Ventimiglia-Weitz who tied the knot 46 years ago.

But when they put them on ... they still fit! Check out the video above.
