So I have this giant dress taking up a ton of space in my very tiny closet. I need to get rid of my dress. It’s a China replica of a Maggie Sottero, and no one would really want to buy it. I could donate it, I guess? My sister suggested I do a Trash the Dress photo shoot, and then throw it away.
But part of me is still clinging to the dress, and I don’t want to get rid of it. Which is stupid. I’m not married anymore.

@fancymichelle: I’m normally not a fan of Trash the dress photo sessions but in your case I guess it might even be sort of therapeutic. You know… have fun in your dress one last time, get tons of great pictures in it that will always remind you of a great day you spent with your photographer, feeling like a supermodel, and then just throw it away. I suppose we could call it closure?

@fancymichelle: I would donate it. I think there are organizations that donate to military brides-to-be. I would do something like that – good karma coming your way! 🙂

Donate it or take it to a bridal consignment store. Be happy knowing the dress will get to make someone happy again. Enjoy your closet space.

I would donate it, this way the negative energy you feels towards it will go away knowing that it can help someone else. Brides Against Breast Cancer accepts donations.

Kill it with fire!
I say donate it, I’m sure there’s some girl out there who would be honored to wear such a gorgeous gown but who can’t afford it.

I’d try and donate it. If no one will take it, burn it.

@fancymichelle: donate it! You could even offer it for free to someone in need on craigslist.

OK here’s the issue with donating it. It’s a replica, and the people in China had a lot of bloopers that I had to fix. Like, I had to sew on the appliques myself. Luckily I’m a seamstress, and it wasn’t too bad, but it doesn’t look professional. Do you think someone would still want it?

@fancymichelle: Sorry to hear about your divorce – I would still donate the dress even if it is imperfect. Someone might still love it! If no one wants it then trash it or you could do something like this…
