Haha, I relate SOOO MUCH to this. Mine is hanging on the bedroom door, still not cleaned. I’ve even put it back on some nights when my Darling Husband isn’t around. I know I eventually want to get it preserved, but I just can’t bear the thought of not being able to wear her again! I think I’m just going to have to set a date and cut myself off– and send her for cleaning and preserving… 🙁

I caved the other day and put it back on! Weirdly it somehow was cathartic because it wasn’t ‘the same’ and just felt more like a normal dress than ‘the dress’. I’m now happy to have it cleaned and stored away for another day when I will try it on (pre-TTC so my bum fits in it still!!).

It was nice to know that after 3months my bum hasnt got too much bigger!

I haven’t sent it to clean yet as well..and honestly i don’t get it how can i stand besides that beautiful, loving thing and not wish to take it out and try it again!!! It’s like.. “i am over and done with it”..which is a little sad in a way..i think i will do as the previous bee, put it on again, understand it was incredible for our wedding day, maybe take a pic of my daughter in it (as i saw on Pinterest) and send it to clean.

@ppplll6:  We are dress twins! Haha! That’s so funny because I pulled up this post because I thought it was a little strange how much I miss my dress already! YAY SWG400!

And I really miss my dress…hmm maybe my photographer will do an anniversary shoot in our wedding duds!

Do a rock the dress session in it (or trash the dress as most people call it)!  I did in mine and it was SOO MUCH FUN! No stress of the entire wedding, just me, my handsome Darling Husband in a white shirt and jeans, and we played with my horses and jumped in the river before I took my dress to have it cleaned.  I seriously almost love my rock the dress photos better than my actual wedding photos…they might be the chosen ones to get hung around the house.  

You don’t even have to do something really dirty in your dress, but even after riding horses and jumping in water my dress was not stained or ruined by any means.  

Here’s some of my favorite inspiration photos:

And here’s a few of mine 🙂

 

Totally not meant to threadjack at all, but just wanted to show you how awesome they could be! And a GREAT excuse to get back in your dress 🙂

Me and my husband bought a fancy camera before the honeymoon. I’m thinking I might wait to have mine cleaned and preserved and wait until it snows (it usually snows  once a year where we will be living this winter) and I’ll put her on and go frolicking in the snow while he takes pics. =) Not sure how silly I will look strutting through the neighboorhood and into the woods for an impromptu photoshoot in my wedding dress…but who cares. =)
