I don’t know yet, but I too would love to find out what others are doing with their dress!

I had my dress preserved and it’s in a box in my closet now!  I don’t know if I’m going to have children or not so the passing it on may not be an option but I didn’t want to get rid of mine!

I have no idea and my parents keep telling me to figure it out because its in a closet at their house.  Im definitely not selling it (though the thought crossed my mind when we really needed money) so Ill probably just end up cleaning and boxing it.  Its almost been 6 months, I think I really need to get on it!

Mine is in a wad in the back of our closet.  I love my dress and can’t imagine selling it.  I’ve been lazy about taking it in to get cleaned and perserved…or maybe it’s not laziness but the fact I’ve had other uses for $150.

Haha, I’m so glad to hear that I’m no the only one with a wedding dress hanging in a closet!!  It’s in the guest room closet and I just can’t decide what to do with it. 

By The Way, someone at our wedding kept telling me to throw it in the washing machine with some oxyclean on gentle, um, that’s not a risk I’m willing to take!!

Its currently laying in a basket in the hall. I’m going to put it back in its bag and hang it up and then once it gets warm again were going to do another session and then I’m not sure what we’re going to do with it

It’s hanging in the guest bedroom closet since the moment we got home. It got really filthy at the bottom (extremely gross) and my bustle totally ripped out. I don’t even know if it can be salvaged. I actually didn’t get very good reception pictures so I was thinking about doing a post-trash-the-dress photo session to finish ‘er off. Eh, we’ll see.

Im actually going to have my dress cut shorter and then i will dye it probably black. that way i can wear it to parties and special events. its so simple that it would totally work. I wont bother preserving it in hopes my daughter will want to wear it, how often does that actually happen? it will probably be outdated by then
