    Going to try and sell it cheaply, help another bride afford the gown of her dreams. I saved every receipt with regards to all my garment purchases, and all the alteration info which was very little. With doucmented proof I’m sure I will be able to sell it quickly and a super good deal.

    @SharlaK:  I’m going to donate mine to someone who can’t afford a dress.

    @deetroitwhat:  So is mine -30 years later. FAIL.  And I have a daughter and 2 very young granddaughters–maybe they will like to use something from it someday. lol.  Of course my daughter didn’t–but then it wouldn’t likely fit anyone else-I’m only 4’10”.

    I had mine cleaned and boxed. I hope some day I will have a daughter who will want to use a piece of it on her wedding day. 🙂

    I’m keeping mine for sentimental reasons and just in case any sisters, future daughters, or future daughter-in-laws want to wear it. I also plan to do this with it:

    I had my dress boxed up. I doubt my daughter or another family member will want to wear my dress, but I just couldn’t bare (bear?!) to part with it after the wedding.

    I’m going to keep mine, and assuming I’m not pregnant and can still fit into it, on our one year wedding anniversary (or five year wedding anniversary) I want to do a wedding vow renewal and wear it again for that.

    I also like the idea (if we are lucky enough to have a daughter) of letting her try it on and taking her picture in it when she’s young.

    I’ll be keeping mine because I’m overly sentimental.

    I didn’t know what I was going to do with mine… until this post! I LOVE the idea of taking a photo of my future baby girl in my wedding dress! And if I don’t have a girl… well I’ll try to resell it maybe.
