What are you doing with your dress AFTER the wedding?

Recommended Posts

Just an idea, I am not doing this, however I don't plan on having more children either. I had my first wedding dress made into a christening outfit for my son along with a long cape. I have pictures if i can just get my scanner to work I will post them. Mind you this was 24 years ago that I did this and my dress train was about ten feet long.

Sorry, but I'm won't be donating mine. I want to save it in case I have a daughter and she might want to wear it, but if not, I'll always treasure for memory's sake and for posterity. We kept lots of little tickets and stubs, etc to keep in a scrapbook so that we remember everything of our wedding week and honeymoon.

This is also a great idea. I never thought of this. I would live to see pics

Great thread. I like hearing what people are doing or are planning to do with their dress. It never occured to me to donate my dress. I really like that idea. Mine is sitting st the back of a closet, still covered in Caribbean Sea and sand. I'm checking out the donation thing -- thanks for the good ideas ladies!

I have been planning on doing the same thing with mine. It's such a great charity. smile03.gif

Hmmm, donation is a nice idea. Mine is in my closet filled with sand still and all dirty from dragging behind me all night. I haven't even had it dry-cleaned! Originally I was going to sell it, since it was triple my budget, but I just can't part with it. I love it. I go to look at it sometimes and it's just too gorgeous to not be with me anymore!

    • 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?
