    I’m keeping it- I have a few cousins roughly my size who I’ve given old prom dresses to (they aren’t very well off) and I think they might want to use it should they get married and like it. It was only $400 so it’s not like I’d make a ton off of it selling it.

    I’ll probably keep mine as a keepsake if I have a daughter 🙂

    Do lots of “fearless photo shoots” and keep it…

    I’m not expecting my daughter to wear it one day, but I know my kids will appreciate seeing it in person and looking at it, etc…

    i’m either going to keep it (and selfishly never allow my children to use it, just occasionally pull it out of the closet to ogle) or sell it, because it is really freaking expensive.

    I think I might sell it.  I feel like I won’t get any use out of it in the future.  Although I might take picures with my MOHs with all of us in our wedding dresses to reinact the Friends couch picture where all the girls were in wedding dresses.

    I’ve always like the idea of using a piece of your mom or grandmother’s wedding gown for a part of your wedding…somehow.  So I hope that if I have a daughter, she won’t wear it but maybe take some fabric from it or use some of the beads for something 🙂

    I’ll be preserving it and keeping it.  I used fabric and buttons off of my mom’s dress, I’d love it if I have a daughter who does the same.

    I’d love to sell it but it was soo cheap, I can’t imagine someone not just buying it new anyway.

    I’m currently planning on using the matieral to make christening gowns for our future children and possibly using my veil for my daughter’s first communion.

    With the money I spent on that thing, I’d better be able to sell it afterwards…

    i feel like i’m alone in the “i don’t want to see my dress destroyed so i’m not planning to let my daughter disassemble it for her own” camp…haha. am i?  maybe i’ll feel different once i actually have a child who is getting married, but that’s a long way off and i can’t ever imagine myself wanting to see that beautiful creation taken apart.

    Sell it, there are very few great and form fitting dresses for full figured women for sale, so I want someone else to enjoy the dress that I adore.

    I did a TTD video, but didn’t really trash the dress, so I’m going to sell it.
