    I am so struggling with this.  I love my dress so much and it would make me so sad to sell it but at the same time from research I have done I can get like 1200 for it.  That is a huge chunk of change to let sit in the closet… hmm I think I will not know until a few months after the wedding.  I don’t want to wait to long though and then it will not be as new and so many other brides will be trying to sell it.  Mine is also barely altered so it would be really desireable to a lot of women that are looking for this dress in a size 10.  Still… we I be able to let go… I DK!! So hard 🙁

    I am keeping mine.  It’s a family tradition to make christening and first communion clothes from the wedding dress.

    @Keltaena:  Thank you. I was motivated by another bee’s thread that described her purchasing her wedding dress from a fundraising event.

    @nyscpa2be:  Awww, this is a very beautiful idea.

    @raspberrymacaron:  And if you wear it around town, imagine all the “congrats” you will get from people. Nice ego boost and a chance to relive the wedding giddiness. =)

    Have you ever thought trash your dress? You can have more fun on it, take photographes to memorize the moments! I’m leading towards the route 😉

    I’m debating at the moment exactly the same thing.  I think in the end though that I will sell it, but keep my tiara, veil and bolero.  My dress is so gorgeous, it’s a shame that it will be hidden away.
