I got married about a month ago, on Dec 28th 2012 (yay!). At first I was sure I’d want to sell my dress to share the joy (after all, what am I going to do with a dress in my closet? shouldn’t I give someone else the opportunity to make the most of it?)?
But now that the dress is clean and looks absolutely stunning and perfect, I’m having second thoughts…
What did you guys do? Did you sell it? If so, did you regret it? Did you keep it? If so, are you glad you did, or do you sometimes even forget about it and don’t do much with it?
If you sold it and don’t regret it, how long has it been? Or if you didn’t sell it and you’re glad, how long has it been since you had it?
Let me know your thoughts!
Oh, and here are some picture for good measure 🙂
Me trying it on for the first time – LOVE!!
and me ON THE BIG DAY!!!

I can’t answer the poll yet but I’m curious to see the answers! I’m having the same dilema now, just FINALLY got my dress back from the cleaners, all boxed up, but I don’t know if I want to keep it or sell it. At first I was the same as you, 100% going to sell it just because I don’t see a point to keeping it in a box under the bed forever, and I doubt any future daughters will want to wear it. At the same time I love my dress and have maybe an emotional connection to it? But does that really justify keeping it? Its a tough decision!!
I do love the pinterest pictures of baby daughters on the wedding dress. So cute, and would be a cute photo to display at the daughter’s wedding and still incorporate the dress without her actually wearing it.

@MrsWright: You looked SO stunning on your wedding day! I personally didn’t sell my wedding dress, and I’m still trying to figure out what in heaven’s name i’m going to do with it. But I’m just too sentimental that I just don’t know if I can part with my wedding dress. That being said, if you can part with it, I don’t see a problem with selling it! I say, each person is going to feel differently, so go with your feelings!

How about an “I’m trying to sell my dress” option? 🙂
I think you should sell your dress – what are you going to do with it? I’m pretty anti-pack rat and just don’t see the point of keeping it. Sell it while it’s current and you can still make some money off of it!

I didn’t sell mine and am recently married also. But mine got ripped pretty good on the big day 🙁 so I don’t know that it could be repaired well enough (the outter layer is organza) to sell.
So, it’s just chillin in the spare bedroom closet. I don’t know what I’ll do with it honestly.

Thanks everyone for their opinions. I’m still torn :/
@pengoala: Thanks for the compliment. I did feel like a million dollars on the day!
