I think Donating it would be great idea. Or maybe you can have a dress made for you, but not for the wedding perhaps. Just a really beautiful dress for special occassion, like your one year anniversary?

How much is a custom made dress from this lady?  I find that some things are too good to be true and it’s likely that the custom dresses are so expensive $500 here or there won’t make much of a difference if you couldn’t afford it to begin with.. you know?  I don’t want to rain on your parade, I know it’s exciting to win something, but thats just been my experience whenever you win a voucher for a large amount of money that is supposed to go towards something..

Maybe donate your second hand dress and get your dream dress made with the voucher? Win-win situation as you obviously thought it was beautiful enough to wear for your special day, so another bride in need will undoubtedly agree 🙂

@Rabbits87:  My Fiance and I don’t go to fancy places either 🙂 Maybe just wear it around the house. I sometimes enjoy having a dinner at home and we dress up in nice clothes Just for fun. Just an Idea, but I really hope you find the solution that would make you happy!

Donating it is a wonderful idea, but if you were looking into a second dress already I don’t see why you shouldn’t keep it for yourself. It’s your wedding! It’s not selfish at all!

@Rabbits87:  Shake that feeling and use the voucher. I’m living in Brisbane as well and know the prices of gowns here. Get the dream dress. Maybe donate the dress you already bought to a charity. but to be honest i don’t think you should have ANY guilt.
