    Question Do you still have your wedding dress?

    I was just thinking about my wedding dress (it's on consignment and I awaiting payment) and was kind of wishing I had kept it; for no other reason than to just try it on and think of the dream wedding I was supposed to have and see how pretty I looked in it. I was supposed to have my first fitting two days after we broke up (boy that was hard, to cancel the fitting and go pick up the dress). Anyway, so do you still have your wedding dress? Where is it? Is it packed away? Do you plan on handing it down to your daughter? I am curious...

    Yes I still have my wedding dress. It has been 15 years!! It is packed away and if my daughter wants it when she gets married she may which would be great!! My Mom offered hers to me when I got married, there were some alterations to be made and I didn't want to wreck it on her so I declined, that is one of my big regrets to have worn my mothers wedding dress on my wedding day.

    I never had one...... I eloped......(SP) ......
    Theresa, maybe selling yours was the best thing to do, you don't need reminders, especially now and you could use the extra cash now.... You'll have another someday when the man that goes with it will be worth saving too. Just wait it will happen........

    I still have my wedding dress or I should say suit. I was married at the courthouse and wore a ivory linen suit. I don't know why I keep it. The marriage ended and I never wear the suit. I keep it for memories, I suppose. It still fits though.

    I sold mine it was just too big to store in our tiny space here..Plus we kind of needed the money to start buying baby things

    And I have plenty of pictures to remind me of it...and I'll never forget how magical i felt when i wore it

    Now that i'm all frugal, i keep slapping myself for paying what i did for it(even though we only paid a small amount and a relative paid the rest) I should have just worn a white prom dress for 80$ or cheaper!

    I have mine (21 years later) and my dd was in awe that I'd kept it. I told her that I kept it in case she wanted to wear it when she got married. She looks at me kinda funny and says "Mom, you didn't even know me then!"

    BTW- my dd is 13 and she thinks my dress is beautiful! Don't know what she'll think when she finally decides to marry, but it's there if she wants it- if not, then I'll sell it.

    I got rid of the 2 dresses I had before- weddings that never occurred, but were planned to the point of having dresses/invitations/ and all that jazz.

    I saved it. My wedding dress is still very part of my life. My mom wore twice to be a fairy at Christmas, as well as one of my aunts. I lent it to a girl at my sons' school, becuase she needed to play in a *play*. I lent the skirt underneath(to make it bigger and wider) to my sister for her wedding....Since I have no daughters, I won't be handing down to my own children, but if my grandchild wants to do something with it later in life( when I do have grand kids ) well, it will go for her...

    I still have mine too. I was married almost 18 years ago. It is hanging in my closet. Dd has started taking an interest in it, she is 15. I tell her it is hers if she wants it but not for several more years!!!!

    I still have mine too! I let a girl that's a friend of the family wear it to her prom. Man she was so beautiful! My dress was a prom dress anyway. If my DD wants to wear it she can but somehow I doubt she will.

    Mine is preserved in a special box. Can I fit into it? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! It is 21 years old and still looks great. My sister made it for her senior sewing class project. I supplied all the materials and paid her $50.00--all I could afford at the time to do it and the veil. I figure that the dress and veil cost about $100.00. I have no girls, but may loan it to a niece IF any of them want to use it.

    i still have mine also. it is preserved in a special box. i bought mine from a consignment shop....and paid like $175.00 for it. it is kinda old fashioned looking. very simple. i loved it...and when i tried it on the first time, it fit perfectly!! it is a size 3/4. i couldn't get one leg in it now!!
    but maybe someday dd will want it. if she does, it is hers.

    Yep, I still have mine too, and like Misty, I paid extra when I had mine cleaned to have it preserved in a special box for my daughter someday. Well someday never came, I have a son instead. Not that I would trade him for anything! But it's really pretty, kind of old-fashioned looking, with chantilly lace.
