No, it would remind me of That Man, so I’d get a new one.

Since you actually never wore it Id say its fine…as long as you are sure that you dont associate that dress with your past.

Depends.  Did you spend a lot of money on it? If not, maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea to get another one.  However, if you did spend a lot of money on it, it was the dress of your dreams, i’d say wear it again. Economically, that would make more sense to me.

I just saw your last post.  Maybe not everyone would agree, but $1200 is a lot of money to me.  Not something that I could just “throw away”.  Keep it around.  Who knows.  By time you’re in the same situation again, you might find a better dress that you just can’t live without.

ohhh – if i was going to wear the dress again i would DEF tell the Boyfriend or Best Friend and see how he feels about it

i know my hubby, he would give me the $$$ to buy a new dress if i was in the same situation. your Boyfriend or Best Friend may be diffferent but i dont think wearing a wedding dress you bought to marry another man is something you should keep secret from your husband. its not a biggie but sometimes men can have funny egos about that sort of thing

If you still love it, if you think comparing it to other dresses would make you think that *this* is the dress, then it’s still the dress! I vote that you wear it 🙂

If you still love it, then you should def wear it.   I agree you should tell your man about the dress’ history though before you make a final decision.  My fiance wouldn’t mind — he’s very practical and would want me to wear what makes me happy!  Also, think about a belt or broach or flower that you can add to the dress to make it different and make it new again.

I would wear it! There’s nothing wrong with the dress & well, I’m cheap. I couldn’t justify buying a new gown when this one is basically untouched. It shouldn’t remind you of the other man- its just what you wanted to wear on your wedding day! The groom may have changed, but the gown doesn’t have to 🙂

It sounds like YOU want to wear it, and feel comfortable with wearing it, so that’s what you should do! 🙂
