Excuse Me? Is Your Wedding Dress for Sale?

  I loved my wedding dress so much more than I ever knew that I would.  When I bought it, I liked the fact that the material wasn't too heavy since I was getting married on the beach and I have a tendency to pass out from overheating. I also loved that it was fit and flair and the bottom was sassy, like me.  I didn't like the detachable strap and I was definitely having a beaded sash added to my waist.  That's what I thought. So then my dress arrives at the bridal gown shop and I try it on and change my mind.  The dress was really made for me -- it didn't require any alterations (with the exception of some thick chest pads) and fit me beautifully.  I then decided that I loved the shoulder strap and no longer wanted a sash for my waist.  Go figure.  I loved my dress, and I can't believe how much everyone else loved it, too! I was overwhelmed with the plethora of compliments on my dress, and I was super surprised to find out that just the other day, one of my sister's friends asked if I am interested in selling my dress. She is having a destination wedding, as well, and has not found a dress that she loves yet, except for my dress.  I'm flattered, but I don't really want to sell my dress.  But on the other hand, what the hell am I going to do with it?  My mom found her mother's wedding dress in her basement in the middle of my wedding planning -- and besides the fact that its size 0, it's not really my style.  So back in the basement it went and still sits.  Should I let my dress join my grandmother's dress and sit in the basement, or sell it so that this other bride-to-be can enjoy it on her big day, and I can make a little money -- actually, I'd probably give it back to my mom, but she wouldn't take it.  I think I'm going to let this chick try the dress on this weekend.  Maybe she won't even like it on and then I don't have to worry about it.
I'm flattered and flustered at the same time.

What would you do?

  1. I enjoyed reading your blog, Diva. Every girl loves her wedding gown that her mother, father or any love ones might have bought for her. Therefore, it is tricky decision to sell your wedding dress.
