I’m keeping mine. I don’t think I’d get as much as I’d want for it, and I had to get it altered a lot to fit me. I love it too, and it’s just really special to me.

I’m selling mine after our wedding this year, whatever money I get for it(won’t go ridiculously low though)we’ll put toward a  week away in the sun together over xmas & New Year! The way I see it i’m never going to wear it again & I dont want it sitting in a box gathering dust when another bride could get pleasure from it.

Well it’s been three weeks since our wedding and I’m pretty sure I’ll sell mine.  I loved my dress. I don’t want to just box it up and stuff it away somewhere.  If I can’t sell it, I’ll donate it.  It should be worn.  It is beautiful and belongs on a bride 🙂

I am going to give mine away to “Briday Project” they sell pre-owned wedding gowns for very reasonable prices and all profits goes to cancer charity.

Sell or donate to charity. I don’t have sentimal attachements to a wedding dress nor do I believe in the saving for daughter thing. Not knocking those that do.

I am going to keep mine and have a seamstress use the fabric from it to make the baptism gowns when we decide to have kids.

I don’t have a dress yet, but I’m pretty sure I’d sell it. If I spend 3K on a dress I’m only going to wear once, I’d want to recoup at least some of the cost. But if I can’t get at least half I would probably keep it. There’s a fine line. But I will add this, once you sell it you can never get it back. So if you’re truly torn, don’t sell it.

I want to keep mine, it’s so unique and special and has a fun story behind buying it. I think it would be fun to show to my daughters or grandaughters someday. Idc if they wear it or not, but it still would be fun to share with them. My mom kept her gown and she let me try it on a few years ago, it was a fun moment to share together.

silverport210:  I couldn’t part with it. I am having it preserved. I love my dress so much. My plan is to pass it down to my daughter if I should have one, and if she doesn’t want it – I will dye it and hopefully wear it to my future children’s wedding

I kept mine. Even if my future daughter/s don’t want to wear my dress, I could give them each a part of it. There’s and etsy seller who makes a pendant out of the lace from your dress.

I have the Divina in blush. I am afraid it will look horribly dated when my daughter get married. I should just sell it, but I kinda want to keep it just for me. Haven’t decided yet.

I would sell mine if I thought I could actually get anything for it but because I’m doing a TTD (in the water only), I don’t know if it’ll be in any condition to be worn again.

We’ll see. If it is, I’ll definitely sell it. There’s no use in keeping something that I will never ever wear again. And it’s huge and takes up space in my already teeny tiny closet haha.
