I’ve been struggling with this for about 4 months. I have my gorgeous Enzoani Dakota cleaned and just hanging in the closet….all alone….
I sneak a peek every once in a while, but to be honest, there are SO many other tthings to focus on (after the wedding) and I feel like its so awful to just have a gorgeous garment just hanging out in the closet collecting dust (not really dust but get my drift…)
I always was the one that said “HECK NO I AM NOT SELLING MY DRESS” but I honestly think that my dress can make another bride just as happy who can’t quite afford it at full price…
Can anyone help me with this? Have any of you ladies sold your dress and regretted it?

@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.
Fiance 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.

@Bubbles42: I never thought of that!! a christening gown would be so special. The only reason I was thinking I wouldn’t let go of my dress was because I thought that IF I had a dauhter, she would want to wear my dress….but them again, chances are slim and she would want to have her own 🙂
Thanks for the idea!

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.
