Yes!  I cannot bring myself to send my dress away either!  It is hanging on my canopy bed and I open the bag at least once a day and fondle it, run the fabric through my fingers.  I keep using the excuse that I don’t have the money to get it clean, but the reality is that I do, but just can’t seem to let it go.

Ha ha I got married 5/24. My wed-clean box arrived last week and I wore my dress most of Saturday. I didn’t want to let it go!

Oh well it will find a new home soon and I will hopefully have some extra cash in my bank account!

I got married in March, mailed out my gown in May and now it sits in my basement….it’s a HUGE box!  But you can take it out of the box and wear it around the house!  As a matter of fact they encourage you to take the dress out and "air it" because it’s healthy!  =)  So no worries, you can totally prance around in the dress again!  I told my husband I would put it on and dance in it for our 1 year anniversary and he looked at me like I was insane!  =)  Good to know it’s not just me!

I know my cousin was wearing her veil and tiera to clean the house one day and her husband came home and just shook his head at her. So I think it’s pretty normal. I can see myself doing that. My dress is really hard to get into by myself, so I can’t see that happening though!

hahaha….this is the funniest thing Ive ever read.  And surprising so many people miss their dresses!  I too would love to wear mine every day, and I have debated a trash the dress session just to wear it again.  Sadly, I cannot wear it around because it is a corset, and then I would have to admit to someone I was wearing it because they woudl need to get it on me!  My husband asks me what the hell I am going to do with the thing, and I tell him I will wear it around the house, and he is all for it!  But for now it is stuck in the closet, all dirty, because I won’t clean it yet, like you said, because then I have to put it away for good ; (

I haven’t gotten married yet (November 8, 2008), but I plan on wearing my dress a few times; okay maybe SEVERAL times until the wedding day just to prance around in it!    Maybe by the time the wedding is over, I can actually part with it and not want to wear it again…ok; so I lied, but I want to wear it again for our one year anniversay and take studio pictures again (SHHH- he doesn’t know it yet though)…

My wedding is exactly 30 days away. And yesterday in the kitchen at about 8:30 I had my first breakdown. As I sat there crying my fiance asks "are you getting cold feet?" Of course not I say, I’m just terribly sad that 1 month from now my wedding day dreams will be here and I will never be able to fantasize about them again. I will just be a wife, no longer this wonderful bride feeling I’ve had for this past year. I’m with you sister and it hasn’t even hit me yet!
