@alaskin17:  I plan to donate mine.I also like the idea of using your gift to make a christening gown if you plan on having children and are Catholic. 

I can’t imagine you would regret selling your dress because you would remember how happy you made the other bride! The important thing is having great photos of it.

I was all for it, initially. I figured that way I could get something without worrying so much about the budget, sell it, and move on.

FI put his foot down and said that he absolutely didn’t want me to do that. He doesn’t ask much from me, so I told him he had to help me preserve it.

I sold mine and never regretted it.  The bride who bought it was so very happy to get it cheaper.  And I liked getting a good chunk of my money back as well.  It was nice seeing that excitement in another bride’s face and knowing you helped put it there. 🙂

As much as I would like to donate mine I really don’t think I could part with it. It’s something i’d like to show my children one day.
