    Mine is packed away in a box with all the other wedding bits like invitations, the note pad I planned the wedding in, dads speech. I loved my dress, I wish I had a big enough wardrobe that I could have it on a maniquin and remember how I felt every day.

    My mum had my dress cleaned and packaged up while we were away on our honeymoon. It's just in a cupboard now. I'd love to get it framed or something one day. We had our flowers framed and they're in our bedroom. I'd love to hear some more ideas on what to do with it. Could never give it away. Quite like the idea of displaying it in the wardrobe, might leave some room for that in our wardrobe when we build our new house.

    Default Wedding dress after the wedding

    Lol mine is in a garbage bag from the night I got married.... I don't really want to look at it again, don't want to get rid of it but don't really want it either.
    The teddy bear idea is good, maybe my kids would like a teddy bear :-)

    ETA I also wanted to keep it for DD but don't know if she would want it? (Ex and I a re getting a divorce)

    Default Wedding dress after the wedding

    I'm so bad, I never even got mine cleaned! But it's hanging up in its bag at the back of the wardrobe.

    I love my dress though and my plan was always to get it cut off and made into a cocktail dress. My dressmaker threatened me with death if I ever did it though, so will have to find someone else to so it

    Default Wedding dress after the wedding

    I haven't had mine cleaned either. It was the most expensive part of our wedding and it's hanging in the closest of my parents' house 7 years later. I'm still procrastinating and hoping that 1 of my 3 daughters will want it.

    Default Wedding dress after the wedding

    I love my dress too and kinda don't wanna sell/donate it. It's unique but sooooo me was a little bit of a fluke I found it. So I'm doing a 'trash the dress' photo shoot on our wedding anniversary lol... Down at the beach sand/water/food dye all that kinda stuff. I was looking at some peoples shoots on photographers websites and they are amazing!!!!

    Default Wedding dress after the wedding

    I'm pretty sure mine is in a bag stuffed somewhere under our spare bed ... I'd hate to think of what it looks like now as I haven't washed it and I got married 7 years ago!

    Mine hasn't been washed and we've been married 4 years. It's in it's bag hanging up though, and never really got that dirty.
    It's about 4 sizes too big for me now but I could never really comprehend selling it or giving it away. Even if I never have any daughters (very likely with DH's genetics!) I don't think I'll get rid of it.

    I like the idea of making something out of it, but it's kind of a crushed satin so I really don't know what you could make out of it to be honest. It's a pretty difficult materiel to work with.

    I do kind of like the idea of cannibalizing it to make a new dress for a vow renewal ceremony in 6 years though, I'm certain you could make something lovely out of it with the PILES of cloth in it!
