    Oh gosh, I’m not that superstitious in the least.

    I mean, do you really think it’s a bad omen to wear a divorced woman’s wedding dress??? If you do, then don’t do it. I just think that’s hodge podge and if i loved it, i’d go for it.

    Somebody else’s clothing has no bearing on my marriage in the least!

    I would have no bones about it.  You clearly love the dress; instead of thinking about how the marriage ended in divorce, think about how much you obviously care about the woman that wore it.  Think of the kind gift she is giving you.  What a great way to start a marriage!  If you feel really wary and are superstitious I understand, but personally I could care less.  🙂

    I would wear it if I liked it a lot and makes me feel special! (no superstition whatsoever) Give the dress another chance:)

    As I was reading your post I was thinking this is a no brainer! I would totally wear such an amazing dress (I would love to see a pic of it by the way if you had one!) and be honored.

    Then I read that the marriage ended in divorce. I honestly don’t know how I feel about that piece of information. I’m typically not a superstitious person or anything and I don’t think that by wearing such a dress your marriage will be failed.

    I think maybe I would sleep on it, try on other dresses and after some time if that dress was still the dress of my dream and I couldn’t get it out of my mind I would go for it. That dress sounds so amazing that I would probably end up wearing it after some thought.

    I would wear it– it sounds fabulous and so unique.  Personally, I wouldn’t worry about the dress wearer’s history.  Rest assured, it was NOT the dress that caused the divorce.   🙂

    I wouldn’t wear it to be sentimental.  Like, I wouldn’t wear my mother’s wedding dress as a gesture of tradition if my parents were divorced.  But I sure would if it happened to be gorgeous and something I would have chosen anyway!

    I’m not supertiitious, but if that is all you think about when you think of the dress, then I would consider that. If you’re just worried right now about what others would think – don’t give it another thought. Just go for it. How you feel about the dress is the most important thing.

    Since you love the dress and have a relationshipt to the owner, who cares what she used it for in the first place??? I think, you make your own luck– There’s no way that dress (or any dress) will impact you and your man’s chances of having a happy and healty marriage, only you two can determine how your marriage turns out.

    I can totally understand the superstitious aspect of this, but I would reason that such an amazing dress deserves a happy ending 🙂

    I think you should try it on before you make your decision.  Quite frankly, I wouldn’t worry about its “history.”  In fact since the designer is going to do the alterations, maybe there can be some “updates” to the dress to make it a bit different, shedding its “history.”
