I’m planning on selling mine- it’s beautiful, and I LOVE it- but I know I’ll never wear it again. And if I ever had a daughter, the chances of us being the same size/her wanting to wear it are probably pretty slim. 

The model looked better in the dress than I do, but I have a much better smile in it. 🙂

Hell yes I’m selling. 🙂 It’s a dress I will never ever ever ever wear again that someone else will give me money for.

I am not  going to sell it.  After  the wedding I can see myself putting on the dress and dancing around the house in it…or sitting and watching tv.

I didn’t sell it nor would I (and I’ve actually had some offers). The thing is, I spent three months picking it out and another five months in fittings. We have a history together. Who knows? I might wear it again. I might throw an anniversary party in a few years or something. Or I might have it altered. You just never know. And when I’m old and grey, it will be fun to look at it and touch it and remember…

I plan on selling my dress after the wedding. It will be one of those things that I’d come across 8 years later hanging in storage and I’d be wondering why I didn’t sell it when it was still fashionable.

I will have to keep mine for sure. I will want to try it on in years to come and see if I can still squeeze into it and then us it as a reminder of where I want my weight to continuosly always stay at!! LOL

Maybe just don’t sell it to someone you know? That way you’ll never be tempted to look at their pictures to see if you think they look better than you did.

Well I have two gowns that I need to resell.  Luckily they are all still new with tags.  I hope to get close to what I paid and I think I can since they were such great deals for me.

 

The dress I bought for my wedding was $99 and I plan to make it into a tea lenght dress for a party later on.  Maybe I’ll even try dying it to use for later.  For $99 I can afford to cut it up and experiment on it.

@redband:  I am not selling my dress, but I am donating it.  It took me a while to find it, but it wasn’t that expensive.  I will be moving after the wedding and have no place to store it.  I know there are charities where you can donate your dress to women who have not been so lucky, and can’t afford the dress of their dreams.  Women who were abused, homeless, or had cancer.

I have every intention on selling my dress if I can find someone to buy it, which is doubtful because of the alterations being made.

That being said, the real plan right now is that if I don’t sell it, my friends and I are doing a bar crawl… in our wedding gowns. Last hoorah before the last one gets married.

I’ll definately sell mine.  I just have to be honest.  I will never have it turned into a cocktail gown, It will just sit stored somewhere for years, and any potential daughter will more than likely want her own dress just like we all  did (I’ll keep the veil for her).  Also, I like the idea of donating or selling it while the style is current and helping another bride have HER dream day!
