I definitely don’t believe in jinxes lol I think that would be awesome if you could fix it up and wear it. You don’t think it would offend your grandparents though, do you?

I think if your grandmother is okay with it, it would be fantastic. If she doesn’t want to see that dress again, I would forgo it and see if you can find a preowned dress instead.

Sounds like a great idea. If you alter it enough it will hardly look like the same dress. Fabric is just fabric.

i say go for it! im not the superstitious type – i wore my sisters diamond necklace, which was her ering diamond before she got divorced- and so far so good. haha! not the same as a wedding dress but i still think that whole idea is bananas. the dress does not determine the fate of your marriage 🙂

i think that would be a really really neat thing to do – please please post pics (before and after) if you end up doing it!

I think that’s a great idea! It’s a great way to save money, and obviously your grandma wouldn’t care if you cut it all up.

I don’t believe in jinx either. My mother in law gave me a wedding+e-ring from her previous marriage (ended in a divorce). If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have a ring at all! I’d say go for it!
