Where’s the option that it’s hanging in the guest room closet catching dust? 😛 LOL. I honestly haven’t done anything with it.

Not married yet but my mom altered my prom dress for me into a short cocktail dress and I wore it to a wedding a couple years ago as a guest.

Mine is packed up, hasn’t been cleaned yet and I will probably keep avoiding taking it to the dry-cleaners because I’m lazy. Ha! No, I really will (at some point) have it cleaned, boxed and preserved in the hopes that my daughter (that I don’t have yet) will re-purpose it once she’s of marriageable age. I’m not so vain as to think she will want to actually WEAR it, but perhaps she’ll do something with it. 🙂

Had it drycleaned and boxed, for future whatever.

@MrsElliot:  I’m keeping it intact for now because I have a third reception coming up in a year’s time and I have to wear it. After that, I will probably shorten it and turn it into a cocktail dress.
