My suggestion would be to sell it and give her all the proceeds from the sale.

@StormyRose:  This.

There is no way in hell I would wear that dress.  Absolutely sell it and give the money to your mom (plus any additional to pay her back).

Sell it.  And tell your mother that you are using the proceeds for your new dress.

She suddenly wants the money back now that you’re engaged to someone else? If she wants to sell it she can sell it, you don’t want it. (haha sorry that’s rude, but I’m imagining my mother doing this and I would be kinda pissed)

Then just buy your own dress, I’m sure the beachy dresses are less expensive as they have less fabric.

@StormyRose: Totally agree! There are lots of websites to sell used/unused wedding gowns. Sell yours and give your mom the money. 

I definitely think you should not wear the dress. I completely understand why you feel uncomfortable wearing it–it was supposed to be used for a relationship that didn’t work out. And who wants that going into their marriage? Plus, it sounds like it doesn’t fit your vision anymore. You should definitely get a dress that YOU want and feel comfortable wearing on your wedding day!

Sell the dress and use that to pay her back.

To be honest, I don’t blame your mom for not wanting to pay for a second dress.  However, I think you should try to sell the first one, and see if she would put that money towards a new dress.
