If you sell it, you won’t be able to wear it around the house while you do the laundry and vacuuming, you know. 😉

I don’t plan to sell mine, partly because I’m not really good at that sort of thing (online) and partly because I might want to wear it again (maybe do a TTD shoot).  By the way, my Mom kept hers and I could never wear it because 1) she is shorter than me and was much thinner than I am and 2) it’s really not in style after 45 years, haha.  I mean….it had long sleeves and a hoop….not really my thing. 🙂  So, your daughter (if you have one) may not end up wearing it anyway!

i didnt wear my mom’s either, but i do rememer looking at it as a kid and thinking it was the most beautiful thing ever. I wont sell mine because it’s my wedding dress. to some people it’s just a dress. but i’m way to sentamental to get rid of it.

If you dont mind me asking what dress do you have? How much do you think you would get for it reselling it?

If you sell it, it’ll be gone forever. With that being said, I’m a fan of selling wedding dresses. My SO is not. So, we’re keeping it. Talk with him about it too. He may have opinions about it that you didn’t know.

There are 2 reasons I will keep mine:


1. I want to have it made into something for my daughter to carry on her wedding day and incorporate into her wedding.

2. If I have a granddaughter I want to make the remaining into a pillow or blanket for her.

I had a really hard time deciding what to do.  I LOVED my dress and got so many compliments on it on the day of.  However, I decided to post it and see what happens.  Sure enough I got an offer on it and I decided to sell it and make someone else as happy as it made me. Otherwise, it woulid have just sat in my closet.  Sometimes i miss seeing it but I know i made the right decision!  And if i ever miss it, I have the pictures to look at!

I sold mine.  I already have an adult daughter, and a) she’s not remotely the same size as me, and b) her taste is quite different from mine.
