    I think I am going to have communion outfits made for my kids out of my dress. My dress is a custom gown and I don’t think I’d want to sell it but at the same time I have no use to save it forever.

    I will keep it for awhile and see from there.  Maybe I will want to sell it eventually.

    Some very practical part of me thinks I should sell it – but that probably wont happen!  I’ll probably save it, but do SOME form of ‘trash the dress’ shoot – but definitely not one that will ACTUALLY trash it lol

    I’m going to keep mine.  If I have its small train removed, I could definitely wear it again as an evening gown since it’s a champagne color.  I’m actually really looking forward to wearing it on special occasions.

    I don’t know yet!! For now it’s sitting in a box in my guest bedroom.
    I’m not able to part from it, but I can’t use it again, either. So I’m waiting…

    I think I’ll donate it. I can’t imagine lugging it all around the world wherever we end up living.

    I had thought about this before I even had the dress! 

    I don’t know if I could part with it now though.

    I love TTD photoshoots, but now I think I paid way too much for my dress to do that!

    I’m pretty practical and am seriously considering selling it….but my Mom keeps insisting that I’ll regret it. My Mom used to put it on every year on their wedding anniversary, and it became a fun tradition where my sister and I would try it on too as little kids. The sentimental side of me kind of wants to carry on the tradition, but we’ll see.

    FI and I are planning a Wedding Theme party. The married couple can wear their wedding attires, and the singles can wear their BM dresses, etc. I will probably sell the dress after… we’ll see!

    I am torn between selling and donating it. I think if I have a custom one built I will sell it, but if not, then I will donate it. Not sure of my reasoning on this, but that’s it! 🙂

    I say now that I would probably sell it. But once the wedding is done and over with, the memories may keep me from doing so. Time will only tell I suppose

    Maybe I’m secretly hoping inside that I’ll have a daughter who will want to wear it.  Or maybe that’s the excuse I’ll tell myself and FH to keep it.  Wink
