    I was going to sew my own dress so I don’t think I could sell it or even give it away. Maybe in the far away future, 20 years or so, I may cut it up and make pillows or something….

    I’m not selling mine.

    I have very deluded visions of my great great grandaughter one day opening up my hope chest, finding the dress and wanting to wear it for her wedding.

    I don’t think I could ever sell it, I love it tooo much and I want to keep it for my future “daughters”.

    I’m far too sentimental to even consider doing that. More power to the women who can though. I actually envy them!

    Maybe. I’ll see how I feel after the wedding. Its not like I have any dreams of it being worn by a future daughter. So I’d probably be open to selling it.

    I’m definitely selling mine.  Even though I adore it, I just know that after the wedding I won’t ever use it again.

    I wish it would be gone!! Not that I didn’t love it, but it takes up so much space and I’m not going to keep something around for the next 30 years in the hope some future daughter I might not have will wear it. It was plain satin too so it wouldn’t be that interesting to make into something else.

    I am definitely selling mine. I kept my first one. It is now out of style and not only can I not sell it, I am quite sure no future family member will ever wear it. After all,, how many of us are wearing our mother’s dress?

    My advice? Sell your dress now while it’s still in style and use the money for something lasting or memory making- a down payment perhaps? or the honeymoon you couldn’t afford?

    @julies1949:  

    No shit about the honeymoon. When I think how much money I’ve spent on my dress and how bad I want to go to Europe, I almost get sick over it.

    Too late now though :/

    For those who have sold their dresses, how much did you recoup and how did you sell it?  I would like to sell mine but am dreading the process.

    i plan on selling mine in the future. 

    I imagine any future daughter I have will feel the same way about my dress that I feel about my mom’s late 70’s monstrosity.

    If I have daughters and they are anything like me, heck no would they wear my dress. I don’t really see the point in keeping something I’ll never wear again and having to store it and move it all the time. I have beautiful pictures to remember it by. I’m thinking of donating to a charity that gives wedding dresses to breast cancer survivors or to service women. We’ll see.

    My wedding is still a ways away, but I would never sell my dress. I love it too much to do that and it could easily be an heirloom dress in the future. If you can afford to keep it at least for a few years and then see what you want to do.

    I don’t plan to sell mine, but I don’t gasp when I hear that someone sold theirs.  I’m just not big on selling things.  I don’t expect my future daughters to wear it or anything, I just want to keep it.  Maybe I want to wear it around the house, so what? 😛
