@MrsJKH2be:  I think you should donate it. What is the reason you are wanting to keep it? I donated mine to a bride that had signficant health problems and monetary restraints. Recycling and helping someone!

i’m 90% positive that i’ll be donating mine. either to a charity like brides against breast cancer or to a bride that i find that needs it. that way, someone else gets to wear it, and i know it’s not sitting in a box in the closet.

My dress had some damage to the front of it by the end of the wedding reception so I couldn’t donate or sell it. As hard as it was I cut it up & made a small quilt out of it just to keep. I’m not having children so there’s no one to pass it down to but it’s  fun to have and takes up a lot less space in the closet.If you don’t know how to quilt there are places online you can send it to. They’ll make it for you & send it back.

I plan to keep mine, even if it’s just in a box in the attic. My mom has hers and I loved sneaking a peek at it when I was a little girl. And then again when I got engaged.

I have read that in some places you can donate yiur dress to charity then you can write it off ln your taxes… just a thought.

Is it a fabric that would hold dye? You could always dye it and use it for future formal occasions. Of course if it’s a giant ball gown that wouldn’t necessarily work but for some less dramatic styles it would be a practical option.
