I always imagined I would sell my wedding dress after I had finished with it. Then I fell in love with it and figured I could never part with it. It's beautiful and it holds so many memories. I loved wearing it so much, even though it left me with scars on my back - 6 months later they are still there though fading. I've held on to some romantic idea that my daughter would love to have it one day. I'm not stupid enough to think that she'd ever wear it but your mother's wedding dress is pretty special isn't it? (Although my mum wore a blue mini skirt!). I've saved my wedding jewellery for her, I'll wear it again I'm sure but ultimately it's for her but do I save the dress for her too?
I'd like to think the dress I chose and wore was classic and elegant, a style that will stand the test of time but like I said, when it comes to her own dress one day I'm sure she'll want something different and so recently I've started wondering if I am stupid for holding onto it. I keep looking at it hanging in my bedroom thinking that maybe I should sell it and pass it on for somebody else to love but the thought of parting with it breaks my heart. It's nuts, it's just a dress.
So what to do? Help me decide, perlease! If you are married, what did you do with your dress? If you're not married what would you do with your dress? Do I get it cleaned and fixed up and put carefully in a box to dig out in 30 years time, or do I sell it on and hope I find someone else who loves it as much as me?
love & kisses
