My dress has been sitting in its garment bag since my wedding in April. I was going to sell it.  Then I wasn’t sure. Then I was gonna cut it up into a different dress. Then I wasn’t sure.  So currently I’ve done nothing with it.

catskillsinjune :  haha love this!

Mine will just be cleaned and boxed away. When I have kids, I’m sure it’ll come out for them to see and play in like my mum’s did for me!

One of my favorite episodes. I plan to preserve it. I doubt either of my girls will want it, but it will be there. Even if they do not want it for their wedding, maybe one of them will want it for prom, or if they continue to do pageants.

It’s been sitting in its garment bag since the wedding about 1.5 weeks ago. I plan to have it preserved and then maybe wear it on an anniversary? Or something? Not sure.  Hopefully our future child is interested in wearing it 🙂

That’s so cute! I would definitely be doing the same exact thing! I plan on donating my dress after my wedding to a program that gives dresses free to underprivileged women. Then my dress can have a second life and a woman who may have otherwise not had a beautiful dress gets to feel like a princess. Spread the love

I vote for more pics with kitty! Kind of a “Beauty and the Beast” theme? Book deal!

mine is preserved in a box.  if i don’t have a daughter, i will rethink what i am going to do with it.

but for now, it will stay in it’s box.  if i do have a daughter. i will either give it to her to play dress up with or hold on to it to see if she wants to use it for a wedding dress or repurpose it.

when i was struggling finding a senior prom dress, my mom offered me her wedding dress to dye whatever color i wanted.  i had worn it for dress up before along with a bridesmaid dress my mom had.  it’s fun.

catskillsinjune :  I dont have a dress yet lol but depending on the dress I am either going to frame it in a shadow box or frame the whole thing like this:

Or if i get a less traditional wedding dress i will just dye it and wear it to other fancy events.
