MrsNeutrino:  if it was still a dress I loved and my Fiance was fine with it….of Course! It’s not the dress that is the promise, it’s in the Vows. it’s a dress that you payed  a lot of money for. If you didn’t wear it to your first I’d definitely wear it now!

MrsNeutrino:  I’ve always loved that dress! It is too fab not to wear! Just based on the pics you’ve posted here, you will look amazing in it!

I wouldn’t give this a second thought. Honestly, too much is made out of wedding gowns. It is a piece of clothing that gets worn for one day for a couple hours(unless you wear it to the grocery store,lol). The truth is that most grooms are going to care more about what is worn underneath the dress than the actual dress its self .  As long as you feel awesome in it and it looks good in pics, go for it!

The only thing my husband remembers about my dress is that it was white

If your Fiance is happy with it then I think that’s really what matters. Your past is your past regardless of whether you remove its traces or not. You had a relationship that didn’t work and now you have a wonderful one. Your dress has nothing to do with that, really; it’s just fabric. Might as well give that beautiful gown a new, happy life!

I see no problem with it at all. It is a dress YOU liked for YOUR day.

It doesn’t carry any cursed voodoo magic with it, it’s just a dress. Just fabric.

If you were talking about jewlery that your ex gave you, and wearing that to the wedding, that would be a different story. That’s a little wrong.

But I honestly think there is NOTHING wrong with wearing that dress to your new wedding. you chose it for a reason, you liked it. Simple as that.

I wouldn’t be able to do it, personally. Actually, my dress I bought and never wore for my first wedding (due to last minute courthouse elopement) is still hanging at my parents. I will not wear it for this wedding. I actually need to get it to a consignment shop.

That’s not saying I don’t think anyone else should. If you don’t attach a meaning to the dress, and your Fiance knows and is cool with it…why not?

There are brides who will buy the dress that they want without the opinion of their fiance, and there are brides who will choose a dress that will also please their fiance.  If you bought that dress because it’s what your ex-fiance had wanted you to wear then yes, I think it would be weird.  But if he had no say in it and you chose the dress because you loved the dress and your SO doesn’t mind, then why not?

You are recycing the dress, not the fiancee so in my book that’s perfectly fine.

If you are ok with it and your Fiance is as well why not. I think what it comes down to is how you feel about it. There is always the option of trying to get some money for it and putting it up on a pre owned wedding dress site.

MrsNeutrino:  I don’t see why not.  I mean if it’s your dress, then it’s your dress.  It could be hard to top it and I’m sure your current fiance wouldn’t want you to struggle finding something better if this is already “the” one.  I think the only reason not to use it would be for supersticious reasons – if you think it’s bad luck or something.

I loved my wedding -everything about the day was the stuff of all my dreams. I was heartbroken it didn’t work out due to his very challenging life with PTSD. We were together for 5 years – and now I’m with someone new for 2 years who we are talking about getting married. I still have my beautiful gown from my first wedding. . but that was another time and another me. There are a lot of sentimental and hurt feelings I think might well up – if I see that gown again. it’s at my Moms in the closet in my old room. Seeing the dress even in this photo reminds me of all the hopes and love I had with and for this man and I don’t want to bring those emotions with me into this relationship. For some people it is just a dress. . . and certainly it would save me a lot of cash as this one wasn’t a cheapie. But for me- the answer is no. I won’t reuse.
