To Sell or Not to Sell {wardrobe dept}

After the Wedding I always assumed I'd sell "the Dress". Thinking that I wouldn't actually get emotionally attached to a garment. However, this garment is not just any garment. The Dress is such an integral part of the wedding planning process and the marketing of the importance of finding the Dress is instilled in every bride since a young age.
Perhaps because the search for the Dress was such a process and the fact that I travelled to New York City to purchase it at the now closed Priscilla of Boston. After the wedding I had the dress dry cleaned at a cost of $500, yes add the cleaning expenses to your budget. At the dry cleaners the owners who have been in the business for over 40 years, Courtesy Gown Preservation, suggested I sell it as it was such a timeless dress and great quality.

The question is; to Sell or Not to Sell? I'm leaning toward not to sell. What did you do with your wedding dress after the big day?

Hey Monica! Love that you created a new blog :) I also got my dress dry cleaned for a pretty little penny. I have decided to keep my dress. I figured you never know who may need it in the future... A close friend, a family member maybe your daughter one day lol. Either way whatever decision you make it will make for a very happy bride. Good luck Hun xox

Hi Monica! Finally have a chance to check out your blogs...it's wonderful!
A suggestion for your wedding gown and only a select number would actually have the heart to do it....that is to do a 'trash your wedding gown' photo shoot.
Not sure if you've seen or heard about it before but the ones I've seen so far turns out really nice. Even though there may be water, sand, dirt, grass, mud or all of the above involved, the pictures are breathtaking and artistic at times.
