After I just listed all of my prom dresses on my facebook. Why is it almost painful to sell these dresses? Where am I planning to wear them to? Around my house… Ok maybe I did try them on to make sure that they still fit so I know I haven’t gotten THAT fat after high school.*for shame*
I don’t want to sell them but I could use the extra cash so I guess I know what it feels like to sell your wedding dress. It’s almost like your selling the memories to someone else.

I think some folks simpy have more emotional ties to certain things than others.
In my town a group of ladies gather once a year to go out to a fancy schmancy brunch in their wedding gowns. Of course they get lots of stares but who cares!!! They always seem to have a blast!!

I donated my prom dresses, but I barely remember my school dances. I wanted to sell my wedding dress initially, but I wouldn’t have made enough money to consider it worthwhile. I like the idea of using the fabric for something else… but I’m not sure what I’d want!

@Blueshoes2:There is something about cutting up a wedding dress that seems like a travesty to me. It makes me cringe but if you could make some amazing dress out of it or something I might consider it.
@FranksMama:That sounds like sooo much fun. If there was a bunch of people to do it that could be really fun. Or even an at home ladies night where you all just drink in your dress and talk about your wedding day or what ever. Cool idea!

I bought my wedding dress with the intention of selling it. I mean, where will I ever wear it again?? But for some reason, after I took it home and tried it on like a million times, I grew ridiculously attached. Not sure if I have the heart to sell it anymore either. Although my practical side is still lecturing me. LOL.

I don’t think I could ever sell mine (: I’m probably going to be one of those women who wears her wedding dress around the house once and a while 😉
@FranksMama: I really like that brunch idea haha

I’m not super sentimental, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to sell mine. Of course, I haven’t gotten my dress yet, so it’s possible I will find one and get really attached to it!
My mom preserved hers and kept it sealed in a box in the basement. I’m not sure if she thought we were going to want to wear it, but by this point it’s really outdated. I don’t know if she’s even ever opened the box! Thinking about that makes me feel like I could sell my dress. I think I would rather someone else got to enjoy it than that I spent so much time and effort picking it out and then it sat in my basement.

@MM423: I wish I had really gotten a good look at my moms before she burned hers. I think in our mothers generation they thought we would all want to wear it one day. These days it just doesn’t happen that often.
