    Mine is 15 years old. I had it professionally cleaned and boxed up. It has now moved house 6 times and I don't think I've opened the box once.

    I'm not really sure what I intend to do with it. My mum still has hers and my sister wore it at my parents 25th wedding anniversary.

    I got married almost 10 years ago and mine is still on the hanger in a suit bag from the wedding night. I never got it cleaned. I'll probably always just have it in the suit bag. I don't have daughters and have no intention of getting rid of it. Maybe I'll chuck it on for a laugh on our 10 year anniversary if we go out for dinner.

    I had mine professionally cleaned as I couldn't bring myself to sell it. I have a friend who takes hers out of the box on her anniversary and wears it. I really like that idea.

    Turned out really great so am very happy with it

    Mine was cleaned, preserved and boxed. But the box has a window so I can have a look at it every now and then.

    I've decided to save them for my daughters. I figure that one day they may like them? Even just to dress up in the dress and veil? Look at the photos?
    Mum did the same thing with hers (except I don't know what happened to her rings, and I'm not game to ask). It was fun to dress up in, I particularly liked the puffy sleeves 😂. Her veil was actually quite gorgeous, but it got damaged well before I ever got to play with it.


    Mine was cleaned and boxed. It's moved house with us and sat in/on top of wardrobes ever since. I love my dress. I'm still trying to decide what I will do with it in the long run - I'm too sentimental though, so it will probably just stay in the box!

    Mine is hanging up in the spare room too - still dirty from the wedding day - I got some berry juice on it from my bouquet and dirt on the bottom from the garden.
    DD has tried it on recently as a joke and I put it on to show her. I don't know what to do with it. Probably just keep it forever for sentimental reasons. I've got my mums dress too.

    Mine is shoved in an old army duffle bag. It did lay on my bedroom floor for a few weeks and then I got sick of seeing it and chucked it in the bag (not cleaned) at the back of my closet. We have moved house a few times since, and we don't have a closet now so I'm not sure where it is. The shed maybe?
