TikTok’s not just about dancing and somewhat-controversial pranks. There are also the viral challenges that spread some much-needed positive energy. The ‘Wedding Dress Challenge’ joins the latter, as former brides are donning their old wedding dresses to surprise their partners.
In the challenge, brides dress up in their wedding attire once more. Some are doing it with the intention to record their spouse’s surprised and heartwarming reactions. Others are taking on the challenge to see if they still fit in their wedding dresses. The videos are usually set to Bruno Mars’ hit song “Marry You.”
While the trend started earlier in 2020, it gained more traction as quarantine went on. In search for a cure to boredom, it seems that plenty of brides took to their closets to relive their wedding day.
