    I am SO in love with my dress… I could never sell it!

    But if you’re not terribly attached, you could donate it to Military Brides or the cancer one.

    I think my dress is going to wind up dress-up clothing for my grandkids, but I feel like I have to save it, just for the pictures!

    @karma92:  if the financial need for selling was high, id say sell, but when the sentimental value is higher and money isnt the issue – id keep it until if/when the need arises to sell. You wouldnt want to regret making the decision in haste.

    I’m definitely selling mine. It was great, I loved wearing it, but I’m never going to wear it again. And, I know fashion is going to be very different in 30 years, just as I’d never consider the style of dress my mom got married in, I doubt my dress will still be “in” by the time my future daughter is getting married.

    That said, if the dress means that much to you, and you won’t get much money for selling it since you got it second-hand yourself, there’s no reason not to preserve and keep it for sentimental reasons. I think what you do with your dress is a very personal decision for each bride. 🙂
