  • It is packaged up and still in my mom's basement. I have always hated it... even the day i wore it (long story)... I have no idea what to do with it. I got married in 1993 so it is a bit out of date to sell.

  • Do you have a close niece or cousin or younger sister that may want to wear it some day?

  • Oh boy, how I regret selling mine!, my dress was made by my mom, beautifully laced with little pearls all one by one hand sawn by my mom, but in a time of need as students in the University of Fla, we sold eat so we could it and that decision has haunted me for years. If the dress has special meaning keep it even if it is to try to fit into it 30 years from now, if it doesn't sell it.

  • I had mine boxed and preserved - it really doesn't take up much room in the attic (the box is hermetically (sp?) sealed so it can't get damaged). Maybe one of your daugher in law's will want to wear yours one day?!?

  • Maybe someday you will have a grandaughter.


    I always thought I would like to have a Christening gown made for my babies, or maybe a bassinet skirt, but never got around to it.

  • Mine is in a plastic storage box that I bought at wal-mart, in the closet. It was in a garbage bag for 11 years until it was promoted to plastic box.
