I personally wouldn’t wear the dress. I am not superstition or anything, but it just wouldn’t feel right to me. If you are okay with it, then go for it!

Where did you get the dress? Could you exchange it for something else?

You could also try selling it and using the money to buy a new dress!

Do what your gut tells you. Since you already have the dress I say wear it.  Your time frame and the fact that it still cost you a grand says to me why not. But… if your gut is telling you something just isn’t right.. then start fresh and get a new dress. It’s your gut’s call 🙂

I agree, I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing the same dress that was meant to celebrate a wedding with someone else.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it! The dress is more about you…I mean, I know I’d pick the same dress no matter who I was marrying. If he’s a reasonable person, he won’t mind at all.

@katie90:  Eh, I’d honestly probably try to sell it and then get another dress.  I think I’d just feel a little strange wearing a dress that I bought when I was planning to marry another guy.  As much as I love the dress I bought for my wedding this November, if something happened (nothing will, but if it did!) and my fiance and I ended things, I’d want to get rid of the dress.  I bought it to wear for him … I wouldn’t feel right wearing it for another guy.

As you didn’t actually Marry the previous person I can’t see why it would be a problem but, of course its up to you.

I wouldn’t wear it- it would be weird karma? I’m sure you could get a sample off-the-rack dress and have it altered in time for your wedding! I definitely think it’s worth the hassle- think of it as a fun challenge and you get to try on dresses- it will be fun!!

I would keep it if you love it and you don’t want to deal with dress shopping again.  It’s YOUR dress, not the dress that symbolized the other guy.

I would probably wear the dress if you didn’t have any negative association with it, but since you said that it makes you think about how relationships can go wrong, I wouldn’t want that taint around me on the big day

The big question was if he was fine with it or not… and you said it yourself, he doesn’t see anything wrong with it. Time to give that wonderful dress some life. It doesn’t have a past because it never got a chance to have one. It never made it near the aisle, it just made it into your closet a little early 🙂
