I am trying to decide if there is any bad karma or anything wrong in wearing a wedding dress that I bought for a previous wedding. I was engaged right after college atheir was broken ofno about 9 months later. How ever I have already purchased the dress of my dreams. I have tried to sell it a few times and could never do it bc it was the dress I always Wanted to wear. The only person that has ever seen me in it except for my best friend was my grandmother. My grandmother was my best friend y entire life and she has been gone for almost 8 yrs now. Her missing my wedding coming next year just kills me. Anyways, I have been looking at dresses online ad nothing compares to my dress I have already bought 10yrs ago. Assuming it still fits, is there anything wrof with wearing it to my wedding to a different man? The dress to me has no symbolism to my previous relationship. If I decide to wear it, I do want to talk with my fiancé to ensure he is okay about it, but I need to ensure there is nothing wrong with it first.

@FloridaBrideToBee: so you found the dress before you found the guy. I see no problem with that! Esp since your grandmother had seen it and she’s not going to get to see you on your wedding day, I think it’s kind if sentimental to wear it. As long as it has no attachment to the old fiancé I think it’s ok. If you had gotten married in it before, now that would be a different story! It’s just a dress- things will work out how they will work out and a dress isn’t going to affect how strong your relationship is with FI.

You didn’t actually get married in it so as it stands it’s just a dress, and it’s nice that your grandmother got to see you in it. If it’s what you really want then you should wear it 🙂

@FloridaBrideToBe I think it is fine for you to wear it as long as your Fiance feels ok about it, it was so long ago and you didn’t actually walk down the aisle in it so I wouldn’t worry about bad karma and I am a very superstitious person, you seem to really love the dress and you say nothing else compares so maybe that is a sign to you that wearing the dress you already brought is the right thing for you to do. Let us know what you decide X

One of my close friends did this. I’m not sure that I would, but that’s a personal decision. I don’t think you’d have any issues with bad karma

It’s a dress! If you love it the universe won’t smite you!
Do you have pics of the dress? I love me some wedding dress pics 🙂

@FloridaBrideToBee: I would look at it less as the dress you bought to marry another man and more as the dress you picked out and shared with your grandmother who you love and miss dearly. It could be the symbol of her at your wedding.

I saw an episode of say yes to the dress where the girl had been engaged to someone else when she bought the dress and she wore it for her new wedding! I don’t think theres anything wrong with it especially if you still love it!

I think the story you shared about your grandmother indicates to me that the dress in fact has good karma!!!
I say go for it!

DEFINITELY wear this dress. You love it!!! I’m sure your grandmother would be happy to know you’re wearing it. (Sorry for your loss. I lost a grandmother I was very close to over 15 years ago. Still miss her so much.)
