- Wedding: February 2014
Probably the closet.
Probably the closet.
I definitely want to wear mine again, for anniversaries or special occasions — it is a short dress so that opens up the possible occasions! Maybe I will get it dyed.
Im planning on keeping it for future daughter/s.
Given the skirt on mine I can see if being dated easily but Id be happy if they just used the corset or even parts of it 🙂
I’m keeping it because it was altered down so much that I don’t think another bride could wear it. I am not keeping it for future use though. May just pull it out to show any future daughter/daughter in law but I think that would be it. If my sister wanted my veil she would be welcome to it.
I was thinking of keeping it but lately, I’ve been leaning towards trying to sell it. So torn!
I’ll probably have to sell it = I don’t want to, but it’d just sit in the closet. If I ever had a daughter, I’m sure she wouldn’t want to wear it anyway, and I wouldn’t want her to feel like she had to. But these things are too expensive, so I should probably just try to sell it -_- stupid expensive dresses.
Absolutely preserving mine! I chose save for family, but loved: And if this poll gets another cannot connect to database. Hulk SMASH! hahaha too funny! I feel the same, what is up with this site lately??
Bought it on Ebay, selling it on Ebay. No one else in the family is getting married, close to getting married or anywhere near my size.
I come from a family of large-bodied giants. I have a larger frame than my boyfriend and I’m 5’8″. He’s a small-medium frame, about 145 – 150 pounds, and 5’6″. The likelihood that any daughter we might have would be roughly my height/weight is unlikely; she’ll probably take more after him and his side. Then again, Fiance was a preemie, so his growth may be stunted from that. Who knows – maybe a daughter would be my side, but that’s a lot of bets.
Not to mention I think it adds unnecessary pressure for a future daughter. “I had this dress preserved…so you could wear it one day!” Meanwhile, she’s sitting there thinking, “That’s out of style, and I’d like my own – thanks…”
Most likely sell, unless I become horrendously attached.
I couldn’t NOT save my dress! Not necessarily FOR anyone (I wouldn’t want to pressure them or anything)- but my Mum – I never even saw a picture of her wedding to my Dad, so in a way it is important to me to save for my daughter to have the chance to see it- mostly just because it is something meaningful and important to me. I would never sell it. I mean, it is MY dress. Never seen anyone in it!
I’m stuck between keeping it, TTD session, or donating it to this charity that does bridal/prom gowns for military families. Although, I know I’d be more inclined to offer it to a military dependent, versus a new bride. I’m hoping to talk my bridesmaids into the same thing, and since 1 is active duty(and also an Army brat), & the other 2 have been spouses, I’m sure they’d be up for it. my sis would be likely to keep it as a little black dress, for college or dates.
Turn mine into a bassinet cover that will look like this:
Perhaps also including my veil as an overlay 🙂
