What to do with the dress after the wedding?

I can just remember being a little girl and having my Mom pull her dress out from time to time to show my sister and I -- those memories were priceless to me, and they wouldn't have happened if hadn't kept her dress.

My experience with my mom's dress was after I got engaged, we decided to is that it came from her first marriage (to my father) and when she pulled it out of the chest, the lace was all yellowed and crispy plus she was about 20lbs lighter than me when she was married so it didn;t do up...and it had long-sleeves so basically it was kind of a joke to be honest.
I mentioned it to DH last night and he was like " what do you mean you want to sell it...don't you want to keep it for our daughter to see?"...he was so sentimental (totally unlike him) that I think I'm leaning towards that now....

My MIL also suggested that I use the remnants to make a christening gown for future children.
