Hi everyone! I’m getting married in October and I’m wondering what you all are planning to/have done with your dress and all of your accessories after the wedding? As much as I’d love to save it all for my future daughter (finger crossed I have one:) )…i doubt she’ll want to wear my dress. And trying to resell it seems like a pain. Is anyone doing anything else with their dress- maybe donating it? Having it made into pillows or something? Let me know if you have a plan for yours, or if you’ve gotten married and have some insight on what do with the dress after. I LOVE my dress, but I don’t want it to sit in a closet for 20 years! Thanks so much!!

I had mine cleaned and it is in the closet in the special garment bag it came in. Your daughter could always take a piece of your dress and add it to her own.
Selling your dress can be a pain, but it is an excellent chouce if you don’t want to keep it. Somebody would buy it eventually.
I am going to donate my first dress after my vow renewal and preserve my second dress.

@stagnerj: Mine’s sitting in my closet right now, but I want to get started on this DIY pretty soon. DH is going to purchase some custom cut glass (pretty inexpensive) and I need to find a way to tack up my train without hurting the dress, but this is what I’m doing! Compliments of Pinterest, of course.
This way I get to enjoy my gown and down the road if we have a daughter I want to do pictures with her in it as a toddler. Then if she wants to wear it for her wedding, she can. 🙂
