I think I am going to sell mine.  It’s taking up too much room and it’s too pretty to have just sit in a dark closet.

Mine is still hanging in the closet needing to be cleaned as well. I’ve listed it a few places online to sell. But don’t know if I really want to sell it. I still like trying it on. Am I alone?

I’m planning on selling mine. I really don’t see the point of hanging on to it forever, knowing I won’t wear it again. I would rather someone else be able to use it.

My 25th Anniversary is coming up in a few weeks and I’m going to pull it out for the first time!  Can’t wait to see what shape it’s in.  My mom boxed it for me and we are former smokers, so i hope it’s not all yellow and disintegrated!  It would never fit me now but my daughter can try it on for fun.  It will be on display as part of our Anniversary party!

I’m going to shorten it to knee length and dye it and of the extra fabric I’ll make a Christmas tree skirt.  I like the idea of having something I will take out and use year after year to remind us of our wedding day.

mine was pretty simple and the lace on the outside was cotton so I am thinking about dying it. might work might not but it was fiarly inexpensive anyways so I am not out much.

@bakergirl:  I’m thinking about doing the Christmas tree skirt, too :). I don’t want to just sell it, but it’s not like I’m going to wear it again (or like I even could if I wanted to!).

I plan on leaving it in the bag it came in.  I don’t want to clean it, I know noone else will ever wear it.  I don’t want to preserve it, because I want to have access to it whenever I please.

But it is a very small dress…  doesn’t take up alot of space.

I have mine hanging in the closet in our guest bedroom. Coming up on 2 months since our wedding and I still haven’t had it cleaned yet. I thought about selling it, but I’m too sentimental to part with it.

not married yet but have plans to keep mine!  I had hoped my mom had saved hers so I could have incorporated into my wedding somehoe ie: using some of the lace for my bouquet.  After being on pinterest I would love to have any future daughters put it on for dress up so they could have those pics on their wedding day.  I would also like to keep mine so after all my friends get married we can all take a pic together in our dresses.  Even if my dress goes out of style (its a MS Jovi) Its such a pretty gown I’m sure I could do something with all the pretty fabric 🙂

My beauty is currently up for sale! I had her cleaned and preserved straight after the wedding. If she doesn’t sell I can’t say I’ll be too upset..
