This was recommended to me too, and I’m kind of in the mindset that if I’m having a second wedding, I’ll get a second dress. I’m not all that attached to the physical dress, and honestly I’d rather not know if I’m exactly the same size in however many years (especially with kids in the mix, I doubt I will be!)

I’m keeping mine for my “second” cultural wedding for my side of the family.

I’ve cleaned mine and am keeping it, although probably not so much for a round two as for a fun event or anniversary party.

My MOH/cousin’s 10th wedding anniversary is next month, and she is basically having another wedding to celebrate. No vow renewals or anything, but she’s inviting all of her wedding guests, having food and drinks catered, and she’s getting her wedding dress out of storage to wear again. She’s one of the only 40 year olds I know who is in better shape now than she was on her wedding day, lol…. am SO excited to party with her and see in her that massive, beautiful ballgown again!!!

I’m planning to sell my dress. I don’t see myself ever wearing it again, and I don’t want it taking up space in my closet. I would rather sell it and let someone else be able to wear it on their big day. If I do a vow renewal, I would probably wear a more casual dress than the ballgown I wore on my wedding day.

If I knew I wanted to do a vow renewal and I absolutely loved the dress, I would keep it. I would be a little worried about whether or not I could still fit into years down the line, but, then again, that’s awesome motivation to stay fit. 🙂
