@LovebirdsSC:  Whoa I would totally frame my dress … I don’t know, I was originally thinking of dyeing it another color because it’s short so I could use it as a cocktail dress, but I don’t think I could bring myself to do it.  It’s probably going to sit in a box 🙁  I am planning to buy a cheap white maxi dress and do a TTD photoshoot though, you could do that with your actual dress if you don’t mind dirtying it up.

I love how Adreinne from BHHW has hers displayed.

The back of mine is buttoned with real pearls, so I will remove them and take them to the jeweler to be made into an heirloom necklace. 

other than that, I do not know.

@LovebirdsSC:  Everything she does costs a fortune! (I’m hopelessly addicted to RHOBH)

@GroovyHippieChick:  I didn’t know about this organization, I was hoping to donate mine somewhere after the wedding and honestly haven’t started looking. Just did a Google search for Brides Against Breast Cancer and I like what I’m seeing. Thanks for sharing.

@bythebook:  You’re very welcome.  FI’s sister died from breast cancer so I thought it would be a fitting tribute.

Here’s the website in case anyone else is interested

It is currently hanging in my son’s room in his closet. Sadly I still havent had it “cleaned yet” from my wedding almost a year ago. I probably should do that and get it preserved.
