So, my wedding was two weeks ago and ive really started to think about what to do with my gorgeous dress now that its had its light shine!
what have you done? Preserve it, sell it, donate it?
would love to hear! I’ll attach a photo of my dress 🙂

@LavenderBride24: aww w, look at your cute doggie!
My dress is hanging in the closet. It’s not a ballgown and it’s not white, so maybe someday I’ll be able to wear it to another occasion (not that I can think of any unless by some twisted turn of events I get invited to a prom lol)

sounds like you made a good choice and may be able to rewear yours!

Mine is still hanging in the closet…I take it out and admire it every so often. I actually still haven’t even had mine cleaned and its been almost two years 🙁

mine has been cleaned and now i don’t know what to do with it. to be honest i need to ask his husband – uts a mexican tradition that groom pays for it so i feel he should have some input as to its eventual fate!

Mine is cleaned, preserved, & I’m keeping it forever.

The practical side of me wants to try to sell it, but I’m really short and think I’ll have a hard time doing that. So I’ll probably keep it, since it’s amazing and I love it so much.

yea, I’m short to, so that has crossed my mind!

I’ve seen people put it on display in a clear window box at the end of their walk-in closet…almost like this:

I love it too 🙂 I hope to do this with mine IF I keep it. If my dress goes over my original budget then I’m going to have to try to sell it 🙁

Not married yet but I plan on displaying mine in a frame on this awkward wall in my house with wedding photos surrounding it.
You could also donate it to Brides against breast cancer. 80 cents of every dollar they resell your dress for goes towards local free charities to help families effected with breast cancer

Mine is currently being cleaned and preserved!
I someday hope to have a display frame like that for it!
Then to pass it along to a grandchild or great-grandchild, along with my wedding band (that was my great-grandmother’s!)

I’m planning to keep mine and wear it for each anniversary. My mum has always bought high end cloths because “it means she can’t gain weight” – AND she can still wear stuff she bought 30+ years ago. In fact, she might wear her folk dress for my wedding and she made that (from scratch – including weaving the fabric) when she was 18! So I’m thinking I’ll do the same with my dress, just make bloody sure I never outgrow it. If I would though… charity for sure.

I still have not had mine cleaned or preserved. It’s still in the garment bag, hanging on the back of a door. I will be celebrating my fourth anniversary this coming week. (I keep delaying doing anything with it, because I still haven’t done my wedding albums and would like to have some detail shots taken of my dress.)
