I’m also curious to see the answers to this! I wore my mom’s dress, and it’s been almost 4 years, but I’m interested to see how many gals get their dress preserved. I’d love to save mine even if a future daughter or DIL would want a piece of the dress for theirs.

My mom actually just took my wedding dress ( a year and a half later) up to get it preserved.  It has been hanging in my closet, taking up room.  I figure since I’m keeping it, it might as well be preserved in a box so it doesn’t get eaten up by bugs and such.  I couldn’t get rid of it, it meant so much!!  It is costing $225 for them to preserve my dress, but mom is paying for it, and she paid for the dress.  Not sure if it is worth it, but I’m glad to be getting it done!!

I’m still undecided about what I’ll do with my dress once the wedding is over.  However, I was talking to a friend of mine who said that a seamstress suggested using the material from her wedding dress to make her daughter’s christening dress.  Granted, my friend has had her wedding dress for the past 6 years, and her daughter is 5 months old. So she didn’t hold on to her dress for this reason; it just worked out. I thought that was a pretty neat idea.  I would definitely do it, if only I could be guaranteed to have a daughter one day…smile.
