I have been thinking a lot lately, about why brides sell their dresses after their weddings.
I am not selling my dress, although before the wedding, I had thought about it (mostly, I think because I didn’t LOVE my dress up until my wedding day!), but over the course of the day, so many things happened to it!! My dad stepped on it, ripping it on one side, it is FILFHY dirty, and to be honest, I fell in love with my dress the moment I put it on, on my wedding day. I don’t think I could give her up.
But I am curious, why are you selling your wedding dress? Are you dry cleaning it first, fixing any rips and tears before hand etc?

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 should say, that I love the idea of selling or donating dresses, because itscan really help a budget bride out! I just don’t think I could.

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.
