I chose one of your options already listed, but I’ve also seen people turn parts of it into baptism gowns, and one woman turned the skirt from her gown into a Christmas tree skirt, which I thought was neat.

We are organizing a Pittsburgh bee bar hop with our wedding dresses.
I am wearing a short dress so I will probably dye it after the wedding and wear again to other parties.

I’ll donate mine, either to goodwill or brides against cancer.  I’ll take whatever tax write off I can get.

I think I will save mine and let my daughter use it how she likes for her wedding.

Mine’s been donated (to the Cindarella Project in NH, FWIW).  I kept my shawl and veil in case any future daughters would like to wear/use them.

I plan on selling mine but since i dont have it yet i dont know how attached i will be to it. But honestly, if i did keep it it would just stay in the closet. I’ve seen pics of my mom’s dress and even if she did still have it, i highly doubt i would have worn it or used it in any way and i  sure if i had a daughter she would feel the same way.
