@rozzy:  I always considered selling my future wedding dress.  I just can’t imagine storing it for years, I just don’t see the point.  I can definitely understand how it would be bittersweet though

It is completely understandable to feel bittersweet. My sisters and I are all bigger and taller than our mom, so wearing her dress was out of the question. I used some lace from her veil, though, in my own veil and that was a very special way to incorporate some of her wedding style into my own unique dress and veil. I sometimes wonder if it makes sense to keep my gown… I will never wear it again, and there is no guarantee that if I have a duaghter that she will. We have pictures and we have memories, and that is the important thing, I guess.


Anyway, congratulations on your marriage– one month today! I commend your decision to give another bride a chance to find happiness in your dress.

My mom still has hers at my grandmother’s house. I wouldnt even try it on bc it is kind of yellow, not my style, and she was bigger than me. I will definitely sell my dress after the wedding. I am actually looking forward to it.

Aw I donated mine to Brides Against Breast Cancer and felt sad for a little bit afterwards, it’s okay! It was the right thing to do for me, no sense in keeping some massive dress in a closet forever or saving it for some hypothetical daughter I may never even have.
