Now that I am married, I have no idea what to do with my dress. I would sell it but I did have it altered length wise and had it taken in. Therefore, I don’t think anyone would but it unfortunately. What else can I do with it?

You could still try to sell it. You could also donate it.
Many brides keep their dress in the closet or in a box for years, then eventually get rid of it.
There really aren’t that many brides who wear their mother’s or grandmother’s dress anymore.
You can also use the fabric , to make crafts boudoir pillow etc if you are into that.

People sell used/altered dresses all the time! A dress can still be further altered, and I know myself, I was on the look out for a pre-hemmed dress so I wouldn’t have to worry about the hassle! As long as you are clear and detailed about what you’ve had done to it, someone out there will still want it!

I’m saving mine to make a baptismal outfit for our first child.

Lots of preowned dresses have been altered! Don’t let that stop you. Just be clear with exact measurements. And like the pp’s said, it can always be altered again.

Definitely try to sell it anyway if that’s what you want to do. When I was looking for a used gown, I looked for ones that had been shortened, because I’m only 5 feet tall, and I knew I could save some money on alterations if it was already shortened.

Awesome! I didn’t know I could still sell it!!! How would I measure the waist?

You could also donate it (and get a nice tax deduction) from alot of organizations. The tax deduction might be worth more than you are going to sell it for.
