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.

              I never thought about having jewelry made out of my dress. I keep getting new ideas every thread I read. Thanks for all the amazing ideas!

                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! :)

                  well, if i can add alittle to this... i spenst 1200 plus some extras on my dress... and got a different one for our TTD, im a mother of 5 boys so i know they wont use it lol im selling mine... i know how hard it is to come up with so much money for everything, if i can give another bride my dress that was bought with love, and transfer that into her day...why not, REALLY are we gonna ever wear it again?

                   

                  if i can do what other brides on this site have done for me...then that makes me happy!!!! hope this helps
