@cmoest:  Well do you like the dress?  If so, I say wear it.  If a relationship is so fragile that wearing a particular dress is going to destroy it, then it probably wasn’t going to work anyways.  Many brides have gotten used dresses with bad histories (called off wedding, weight gain, etc), but have gone on to have happy marriages.  It doesn’t make the timing of the divorce less stressful, but I don’t think you should worry about the dress.

@cmoest:  …that’s life sometimes!

A divorce certainly won’t put a damper on your wedding anymore than having divorced people in attendance would…its not like a rational person looking down the barrel of ending a marriage would stop proceedings because someone was getting married…don’t worry about it.  Plus, if she’s ridden in this rodeo before, she knows the deal.

An heirloom dress from a divorced marriage isn’t cursed or anything, unless you hate it or it smells or something…we all know that the ONLY actual cursed items in this world are the evil tiki figures from the Brady Bunch Hawaii trip…Gregg didn’t know what hit him!

Either way, let the dust settle on the announcement of this divorce and you’ll see, its not such a big deal at all.

Sorry to hear what you/they are going through. But maybe a wedding is exactly what you need to get over the tough times. If you don’t feel comfortable wearing the dress, just say that you have found this other dress that you’ve fallen in love with, and would really, really like to wear it for your wedding… or something of that sort.

That’s a bummer! But I don’t think it will affect your wedding joy/planning.

Do you LIKE her dress? If you do, wear it! If you don’t, you now have a GREAT reason not to wear it!
