    I don't think she had a photo album but the framed pictures didn't 'survive' her moving out.
    My sister, my sil and I all did this after my sister lost her baby.
    I think they do such an amazing job

    It is terribly heart breaking but whoever thought of it and those wonderful volunteers who sew! It's just all so beautiful
    Please don't apologise.. I was crying because it's such a lovely, heartwarming thing to do, to truly help a family when they're at their lowest point.. That organization is amazing, as are the women who donate their dresses..

    I will give my engagement ring to my daughter when she's 16 Its not a classic engagement ring so she could wear it and not look strange. My wedding ring went back to my dad, as it was his mothers ring.

    DH kept the album, and ex kept the dress.
    Not sure what she has done with it (other than promising it to DSD), but we have put the wedding album in tissue paper and plastic and stored it on top of the bookshelves in case the kids ever want to see it.
    ETA: the wedding dvd is there too.

    I donated my dress to a similar charity for Angel gowns too, lovely ladies, they even sent me a picture of the tiny gowns they made from mine 😥

    My rings I still have, I did contact a jeweller for a quote to sell them but it's too depressing, $12k to buy them and $700 to sell them? The mark ups on jewellery are ridiculous!!
