Hello bees…I am engaged only at this point- no date or venue however I DO have my dress as well…..actually, I purchased it off this website from a boutique. That being said, I know that many brides sell their gowns after the big day and I am already semi-obsessing about should I do that? should I not? Can you tell me how you came to the decision to sell or not to sell?

you have quite awhile to decide.
dresses can be hard to sell if they’re heavily altered (especially if you’re very thin or short) or from a few seasons ago. has your dress already been worn? that would make it harder to sell again if you’re already the 2nd bride.
are you planning to have kids? would you want the option of your daughter being able to wear your dress? are you really sentimental — do you generally hold on to a lot of keepsakes? those are reasons not to sell.

Honestly I’m not really attached to my dress and wouldn’t really care to keep it for sentimental reasons or for my children. I’m thinking about donating to www.makingmemories.org because my mother had breast cancer!
