I’m going to frame my dress.

I think depending on the shape and style of the dress you’d have to cut it shorter and dye it another color–a short pink lace gown could definitely be worn to a wedding. Maybe add a sleeve and a belt.

I don’t know if you can do this with your dress, but someone suggested that I chop mine off to the knee and dye it.  If it’s not outrageously expensive, I’ll do this.

I’m probably going to have mine made into a baptismal gown for our future bebes.

I am donating mine, but I just bought a Pronovias that came with a removable train that I am having reworked a tiny bit into a formal gown for next year.  Couldn’t pass it up for $100 sample sale cheaper than most formal gowns.

after Fiance and i are done having babies. (we only want one more since we already have 2) i plan on taking someof their old baby clothes and making a small quilt out of it with my gown as the backing and giving it to them for their weddings. that way they each have a peice of my dress. this would only work with non beaded parts of a dress though

I’m planning to keep mine and wear it to formal balls once a year. Why not have it professionally cleaned and then keep it to give to the next generation?

I sold my dress. I posted it on various sites and it took about 8 months to sell. I love the fact that another bride could enjoy my dress as much as I did.
