If you are planning to sell your dress, I would have it cleaned ASAP. I’ve heard some brides talk about making it into a cocktail dress, but that all depends on what your wedding dress looks like.

Or you can look into places to donate it.

I preserved mine not because I ever think anyone will wear it, but because I LOVED going through my mom’s and grandmother’s wedding things after I got engaged. Even though I didn’t plan on wearing any of their dresses, just getting to see them in person was a really wonderful experience. I’d hate for any daughter I may wind up having to want to see my dress, or maybe use pieces of it in decorations or her her bouquet and to have to tell her “oh, I sold it”. It may never happen, but, for me, the opportunity cost wasn’t something I was willing to deal with to save a few hundred dollars. :o)

I’m planning on selling mine as well (hopefully!).  If you want to sell it you’ll probably have more luck if you get it cleaned, so I’d at least do that.
