    I chose other – having my dress custom made by a Chinese shop overseas. Plan on doing a trash the dress session at some point after the wedding. Haven’t worked out the specific details yet but I love the idea!

    Mine is hanging in my closet, as I can’t currently bear the thought of getting rid of it! I’ll probably either end up donating it or trying to find some neat craft for it!

    My FI is for some reason vehemently against me selling or getting rid of my dress. I told him he’s going to have to frame it or help me preserve or display it in that case…I don’t want it to just sit in the closet.

    Mine is sat in it’s preservation ox. On one hand it is a waste but on the other I can’t bear the thought of not having it anymore.

    I’m donating it but it was only $200 so recouping cost isn’t really a big deal.

    I’m probably going to sell it. The only alterations made were the bustle, so I think that  it will be easy for someone else to make it their own as necessary.
