    Bump? I was wondering the same thing… I don’t really have a use for it now. Murphy’s Law seems to apply to me more often than not. I’m sure if I sell or donate it, I’ll have a daughter or granddaughter that wants it, but if I keep it, it’ll never get used again anyway.

    I plan on donating my dress to Brides Against Breast Cancer.  What good does it do hanging in my closet?  🙂

    I couldn’t part with mine, mostly because my Mom kept hers too.  When my sisters and I were younger, we loved playing dress up with Mom’s dress and used it on more than one occasion for plays/theatre productions/etc.  Hopefully my future daughters will love my dress as much as we loved my Mom’s!

    My dress would have taken up one of two closets in our 700 sq ft apartment we lived in – nope, no regrets! I don’t beleive in lugging around giant things with sentimental value since we’re pretty mobile and move/travel a lot. We have a ton of gorgeous pics – that’s enough for me!

    I sold mine for about 1/5 of what I paid for the entire outfit. I don’t mind that I got so little and I’m glad someone else can wear it on their special day. Sometimes I wish I could put it back on for fun, but that is kinda silly imo and a fleeting feeling.

    I voted that I don’t regret selling it, but that’s not entirely true.  I miss her, and I’m sad I can’t just dress up in her whenever I want (that’s totally normal, right?  :-P).  I’m a bit sad sometimes that I can’t wear her on our first anniversary or anything like that.

    However, I realize that those are all just silly wants, and necessity demanded that we sell her for the money and also so we could reclaim the space in our closet.  The reality is that our future daughters, were we to have any, almost certainly wouldn’t want it.  There’s no good reason to keep it other than nostalgia.

    So yeah, I’m a bit sad she’s gone, but I don’t really regret selling her.  It was definitely the right decision.

    I’m in the process of selling mine, so I didn’t vote. I highly doubt I’ll regret it other than what PPs have mentioned about wanting to try it on again for fun.

    I just couldn’t bring myself to keep it. It would take up too much space in a closet and I’d end up getting rid of it someday, I figured why not do it now when it can still be considered “stylish.” I didn’t want it to end up sold in a yard sale for some kid to play dress up in, ya know? Lol. <– That’s what happened with my mom’s. And I know myself, I would think in 10 years, “Dum-dum, why do you still have that?” Plus I know my daughter will not wear my dress. I may not even have a daughter, and she’ll probably think Mommy & Daddy looked young but out of date. 😉

    Plus the money doesn’t hurt! Even if it is just a fraction of what I paid for her. I want some other bride to enjoy my awesomely weird dress too! 🙂
