I am selling mine because it is taking up room in my (not very big) closet. I will never wear it again and I doubt my daughter will want to wear it. I will have to get the right price for it though, I won’t sell it for like $50, not worth it.

I’m selling it because I won’t have children. So why let an expensive dress sit around when someone else can use it? 🙂

I sold mine, and I had it cleaned before I did (because it was quite dirty, though is cleaned up very nicely).  I sold it for several reasons:

1) We don’t have enough space as is, and it took up a lot of room.

2) We needed the money.

3) I hated my mom’s dress because it was so unfashionable by today’s standards.  I have no reason to believe any future daughters I have won’t feel the same way about mine.

4) That said, I may not even have a daughter to give it to.

5) And even if I do, and even if she were to like my dress, the likelihood that it would fit her is slim to none.  DH has over a foot on me, and I am shaped quite differently from his mom and sister.  Alterations can do a whole lot, but they can’t perform miracles.

Because if I don’t sell it now, I’ll regret it later and try to sell it when it’s out of style.

I’ll want the closet space, and the $$ sounds great, too.

I’m keeping my veil and my hairpiece. If I have a daughter, she’s more likely to want those over my trendy wedding dress that won’t be so trendy 25 years from now.
