    I picked no, because I am not selling it, but I am not keeping it, either. I am going to give it away to a local charity that provides wedding dresses to terminally ill patients who want to get married and can’t afford a dress.

    I probably won’t because it was very cheap to buy so I wouldn’t make much money back anyway, plus I like the idea of having the option for a future daughter to wear it ๐Ÿ™‚

    That said, I fully support anyone’s decision to sell, keep, pass down, preserve, etc. This was just something that interested me.

    My original plan was to rewear it on anniversaries b/c it’s short and casual enough to wear it to a nice restaurant.

    And then I got pregnant before our first anniversary, so I couldn’t even wear it then. Then the plan changed, I preserved it. I know I wish my mom would have done so with her dress, so I figure I’ll have mine in case my daughter wants it either as is, to alter, or just to use the lace or veil.

    I will definitely be keeping because I’m a really sentimental person. I have no expectations of my daughter wearing it for her wedding or anything, and yeah I probably won’t look at it that much… I just don’t think I could stand getting rid of it. The few hundred dollars from selling would be nice though, so I wish I had the heart to do it ๐Ÿ˜›

    @PennyTee: Date twin! Cool! I am sure you have something like that. If not, there are charities everywhere who look for wedding dresses. There is a big one for cancer, I am pretty sure, and there might be something local for a church, shelter, etc.

    I plan on selling for a couple reasons..

    1.) My Fiance is in the military and will prob be moving around a lot. We have limited space for stuff to move..  I wouldn’t want to keep something that can never be used again…

    2.) Who doesn’t want some extra money after the wedding?

    3.) I doubt that my daughters would want to wear my dress to their wedding.. I am sure they will want their own.. but I have decided that I will be keeping items that can easily be stored in case they want a momento from my wedding at theirs ๐Ÿ™‚ I have my garter and veil etc

    …just  to name a few. With all of that being said, if the dress doesn’t sell, I won’t be heart broken lol

    Nope. It was custom designed and made for me by one of my best friends, so it has double the sentimental value!  No way on earth could I let go of it. ๐Ÿ™‚  I had it dry cleaned and preserved it myself with materials from the container store. Hopefully I didn’t screw up the process too much!

    @artbee: I like that idea!  I truly won’t expect my daughter or future daughter-in-law to wear it, but it’s a nice idea if they want to use a piece or a part of it!

    I’m selling mine.  I don’t really want to because I love my dress, but I’m never going to do anything with it again, and some money would be great.  Besides, my Fiance is 6’3, and I’m only 5’2.  There’s no way on earth it would fit any future daughters anyway.
