    I agree with your mom, I don’t really see the point in insuring it.  What would you do with another one? 

    To be fair, I’m having a hard time coming to terms with the idea of just wearing a beautiful dress for one day.  Right now I’d like to find one I can alter and maybe wear again someday.  (We’ll see if that’s even possible.)  Nor did I know you insure dresses. 

    By the way, your dress looks gorgeous and I can see why you want to hang onto it!

    Never even considered it. I thought it was something that people did prior to the wedding, in case anything happened (in which case, they actually would need to replace it).

    My dress was worth $3K when I bought it, and I will probably keep it. (I haven’t had much luck selling it). But I won’t insure it because, as your mom points out, what is the loss? It’s not like I have a custom Dior gown that may be worth something as a museaum piece someday. And any emotional attachment you have to it will still be lost, since you can never buy a replacement for YOUR wedding dress.

    You might want to add options for "Not Cleaning It" and "Not Keepint It." I donated my dress to Brides Against Breast Cancer.

    I didn’t insure mine, because it’s just for shipping purchases in case it gets lost.  It has nothing to do with if WedClean damages your dress.

    I was really happy with their communication and everything and I was already saying good stuff about them, but I should have waited!  I got my dress back and there are 2 unknown ORANGE spots on my dress that WERE NOT there before.  I e-mailed the person I had been corresponding with and she said she would look into it and get back to me.  I e-mailed her AGAIN the beginning of this week because I hadn’t heard anything for 3 weeks as of right now still no response.  I am pretty livid because they ruined my dress and so far isn’t trying to remedy the situation.  Yeah I already wore the dress, but it’s a 5K dress and this is ridiculous.  What if I wanted to resell it?  Not possible with those stains because they are on the front of the skirt and are VERY noticeable.  I’m attaching pictures for you to see.  They have great reviews, but I just wanted to warn you because the one thing I was most worried about actually happened to me.  Oh, and the second image, when you run your finger over the orange marking, your finger actually stays with like this greasy dirty feeling.
