Are you selling your dress after the wedding? If you already did - did you regret it?

Recommended Posts

Hello ladies,  I'm thinking about selling my dress.  Someone has inquired about it and I'm wondering if I will regret it after?  If I have a little girl oneday, will I wish I had it to show her?  On the other hand, had I done Trash The Dress in Punta Cana - I wouldn't have the dres anyways.  Or, is selling it the best thing to do - will it just take up space and never be touch again?  I'm interested in your thoughts and experiences.  xoxo

I think that this is a loaded question for some rolleyes.gif

 

However; I do plan on selling my dress after the wedding and TTD. I highly doubt that I will regret it afterward as I will have a ton of pictures from our wedding, videos and the like.  In addition, I will have my sash turned into jewelry by the famous Chelsea, of Red-i by Chelsea.  This alone will allow me to always have a tangible piece of our wedding (besides the hubby ;-). My saying "YES" to the dress was an amazing experience because I also met my designer Lazaro.  In addition, he sketched me in my dress & signed it which I will have framed and hung in our house.  Lastly, I have a male child so I definitely won't be passing this down to him smile120.gif but even though I will gain a daughter from our union who is currently 19, style change so very much that it is she wouldn't want it.  Besides, I would want her to have that very special moment when she finds her own just as I did.  So with all that said, I plan to sell, sell, sell

I plan to donate mine to a nonprofit organization that helps women victims of domestic violence....although, it might make some nice curtains after the fact!

I had the idea to make mine into maybe a couple of throw pillows, or even back it and have a throw blanket for the end of the bed. cheesy...I'm sure. We just ordered it...and I have about a year until the wedding - so maybe I'll feel differently about it a year from now. Right now, I want to keep it.

Another idea that I've already talked to many brides about and will be showcasing later on is having custom jewelry made out of components of your dress. If you do a TTD session, it can still be done since most dresses are easily salvaged after sand and water if properly dried out! With many dresses having crystals, pearls, applique, etc. plus the material itself, the possibilities are endless! It's another keepsake that can be worn either for special occasions or to spruce up a t-shirt & jeans. I'll be getting my dress I purchased for my TTD session hemmed in the next few days and plan on using the leftover fabric to do just this.

Selina you are crazy, however; your material is FAB and would definitely compliment any room.

How am I crazy? Because I want to donate it or because I believe it will make some wonderful curtains in the near future? Sent from my Nexus S 4G using Tapatalk

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
