What did you do with your Dress AFTER?

Recommended Posts

So, today I will receive my cleaned dress packed in a box. What do I do now?

I live in a tiny flat in london, nowhere to put it, and let's be honest, i'm not going to use it again. But I do love it...

 

Should I donate it to charity?

Should I keep it?

what did you guys do?

I have not cleaned mine yet eventhough the TTD kind of took care of that.

 

I am going to keep mine and put it on every once in a while, grab a beer and sit and watch TV.

 

Oh! Almost forgot I will also be wearing yellow dishwashing gloves, right Jilly?

I tired to sell mine, but with no luck. I think I'll keep mine and make something out of it when I have children. I might donate it if the right person comes along. Let's face it, I'm sure our future children will not want to wear our out of style dresses, and that's if you have a girl and they are the same size as you.

My dress is in the basement in a rubbermaid bin along with a bunch of other stuff I keep for sentimental reasons. I had grand ideas of using it for something but haven't done anything with it in 27 years, except wash it after the ceremony. I offered it to Katie and her reaction was "It has sleeves!" :)

 

And, btw I can still get it on although it is a bit tight through the chest and waist :)

I just had my mom send it to her house in San Diego, she has more closet space and storage space than I do (I actually have two dresses). I tried to sell the one I didn't wear but got nothing so I might donate the one I didn't wear and keep the one I did for my daughter to play dress up in, I am sure she won't want to wear it.

I was planning to sell or donate it. But my mom suggested that I keep it and have my children's christening gowns made out of it, so I may do that instead.

i second that idea! (or maybe third, jilly?) haha. no seriously, my dress is my dream dress and although i got it at an amazing price, i dont think i could ever bear to part with it just to make more space in my closet. id rather get rid of something else if space needs to be made.

Mine's sitting in the closet...I don't think I'm going to get rid of it because I feel weird about that...almost like it's bad lucky....I'll probably turn it into something else one day.

I haven't decided. I like the idea of donation, but I'm kind of a pack rat! I also still love to play dress up and I figure if I spend a grand on anything I should be able to use it more than once or twice!

 

A friend saved her dress and had her daughter's christening gown made out of the skirt. I really like that idea.

 

There is also a company that makes quilts out of you dress. I'll see if I can find the link!

 

Custom Wedding Dress Quilts, Wedding Dress Quilt

 

This was the first example through google search, but you get the idea!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
