I don't think it sounds like you want to wear it anyway...I would try to sell it or even donate it.
You will be so much more excited about a new dress anyway!

    I personally would want a new dress, just because I think I would always remember that I bought the dress to wear at a wedding in which I was supposed to marry someone else.

    I'd probably try to sell it on Ebay...or maybe do a trash the dress session in it. ...have you heard about trash the dress photo sessions?

      You know, when I read this at work, for some reason I thought you were asking if we all thought it would be bad luck for you to wear the dress for your wedding now. I just re-read the post and realized that's not at all what you were saying.

      I say sell it and use the money for your wedding. If you want to "turn the luck around" where the dress is concerned, I would think there's got to be some charity out there where you could donate the dress.... in fact, I keep thinking there's some charity out there that sells the donated dresses to raise money for breast cancer programs....

          If you are asking that probably means you don't want to wear it. I'd donate it.

              What is a trash the dress session? I have never heard of this.

                Ditto.. that's exactly what I think.

                  I would sell it. I don't think it is bad luck to wear it but if that thought is in your head it will turn itself into a bad luck charm from the energy surrounding it. Then if something goes wrong you'll say "it's the dress". Ditch it. It will be fun to pick a new dress for your new man :o)

                    I figured I would give you some perspective from a guy...... Get rid of it. There is no way I would want my fiance Karen to wear a dress that she had bought in preparation to marry another man, and I know she would never do that. Someone else gave the example of an engagement ring bought for another woman. I know Karen would not be happy with a ring that I bought for someone else either.

                    I say sell it and use the money towards a new dress or donate it.
