If you love it, wear it!! The dress (or the previous owner) does not define you or your new relationship!!! The fact that her marriage ended in divorce (altho I can appreciate your worries) has nothing to do with you or your marriage. Its sweet that it will please your mom as well!
I say GO FOR IT!!! 🙂

If I loved the dress, I’d do it.

A piece of fabric was not responsible for someones marrige coming to an end. Who cares what other people think. Nobody will know who the dress belongs to until YOU tell them. The dress sounds beautiful, go ahead, wear it. 🙂

I wouldn’t. I am not superstitious in the least nor have I ever been, and to be honest, I really don’t understand why people are, with the education that is available today as opposed to the Middle Ages when they originated. Contrary to popular belief, a dress holds no more power over a couple’s relationship than a piece of jewelry or any other material item. That type of thing only happens in the movies.
That said, I have my own personal tastes that don’t mesh with other women’s so what they think is stunning and what looks good on them doesn’t necessarily look good on me and vice versa. If someone wants to do that, then more power to them. But most women want a dress that is all theirs that no one else is wearing, which when it comes down to it, only happens if the dress is custom made with their own design. Also, you have to account for the fact that you will need to have alterations done that may easily require the dress to be completely reconstructed since no two women are built the same.

If the dress fit me and looked good on me, I’d definitely wear it and use the money from the dress on better food, pictures or flowers.

YES!!! It sounds like an incredible opportunity… To me it seems silly not to wear the dress you like even if it has a story. Look at it in a new way, you can give the dress its “happily ever after.”
Seriously, I always knew I would wear a brand new designer gown and then common sense took over and reality sunk in. Presently, I’m going to wear the dress that I feel best in, the one that makes me smile like my fiance does and the one that is the best overall fit. For me fit isn’t just the dress measurements, it’s the style, measurements and financial value combined.
Have you tried on the dress? How do you feel?
