    Honestly, I would lean toward saying no BUT in this situation I think the dress has more meaning to you than “I picked this dress to wear for my ex.” You and your mom picked that together and I think that that adds so much value to the dress and in that case, I would probably wear it. Especially if you loved it so much.

    @His-Sunshine:  If that’s the dress you truly love….”the one” if you will, I don’t see a problem with it. Especially since you picked it out with your mom and it has sentimental value.

    @tentwelvethirteen:  +1 

    you could also consider having some sort of alteration made to make it “different”

    Um, that dress? HECK YES I WOULD. Its so stunning!!!

    I agree with PP’s add something different to it, even just a brooch somewhere or something. Plus, even though you planned on wearing that dress, will your veil, shoes, and jewelry all be different? Its special because you picked it out with your mom, not tainted because it was going to be worn with your ex.

    In your case, I would definitely wear the dress.  It has special meaning because of your mom, plus it’s such a gorgeous gown.

    I would be okay with it, because the good part(picking it out with your mom) trumps a failed engagement in My eyes.

    @His-Sunshine:  Mom trumps ex.  In this unique case, I would wear the dress you chose with your mom.
