    Mine is currently hanging in my closet. I meant to get it preserved in a box and whatnot, but life got in the way!

    I’ve looked into getting it made into a quilt or something of the sort (I’ve been stuck on getting old t-shirts turned into a patchwork quilt too, Idk why), but not for a few more years. I love my dress, but realistically I wouldn’t expect any future daughter(s) to want to wear it.

    I’ve also considered donating it, but again, not for a few years if I do.

    My fiance was horrified when I mentioned the possibility of selling it, so I guess I will be keeping it…

    I will dye it a peachy color and wear it. It’s pretty simple and can pass for a summer dress 🙂

    mine’s been sitting in my closet. i haven’t even had it cleaned yet. but i want to have another photoshoot for fun- maybe at the beach or another pretty/fun location. and also, i wear it around the house ocassionally just for kicks, hah.

    but once i’m done wearing it for good, i’ll have it preserved  or something and keep it forever. maybe my future daughter will want to wear it.

    I put “other” because I honestly have no clue. 

    For now it’s preserved and in the closet. I will reassess in about 5 years if I want to donate it, alter it to a nice dressy dress, keep it as-is or punt the decision another 5 years down the road.

    I just knew I didn’t want to make that decision right away.
