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

Recommended Posts

I'm currently pondering what I will do with my dress after.  I probably will end up selling it. 

 

I had a good giggle over the curtain idea!!

As your dress, the curtains would be dynamic as well.

Well I swore that I was going to sell my dress after the wedding, in fact, it's the way I even committed to buying my dress.  I ended up with a couture dress that was almost triple my budget and I tried for 8 months to find another dress and when I couldn't, I decided that I would buy this dress and then sell it to recoup some of the cost.  The dress is still in my closet, still full of sand from my wedding almost 4 years ago and I can't even think about parting with it.  I didn't think I was a sentimental person, but apparently, I'm attached to my dress.  I'm pregnant with my first child now and my mom mentioned perhaps using the dress to make a christening outfit or sash or something and the thought of ruining it made me so sad.  I think I might have to keep it for myself.  Like I said, I'm not very sentimental when it comes to material possessions, I don't keep many mementos, but I'm thinking I will have to keep my wedding dress.

 

After reading some of the other comments, I think it's just a personal decision and there can be no wrong one.  I don't think I've heard of anyone selling their dress and regretting it though.

Yes! It's definitely another great option! Another idea is to save any scraps that might otherwise be discarded during alterations and utilizing those materials. I'll be designing a piece out of Coconoir's sash as she mentioned after her trash the dress, so even the accessories can be repurposed! :)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
