I do, but my dd's think it is ugly as sin, lol. Yes, 28 years later I see why they say that. If my girls, have girls, I would like to get infant dresses made out of it.

I have mine, in a box, since that's what one is supposed to do. I doubt my 2 DD's will wear it. They'll probably want the fun to pick out their own that fits their style.

I would have been fine renting my dress, like my DH rented his tux. Most wedding dresses are a one time event fun pretty item that, b/c of that one time nature are completely overpriced, and well suited to being available, like tuxes, in a rental store. I think it's a big scam, that women lap up, that you must pay hundreds or thousands for a dress that will only be worn once, and then professionally dry clean it and store it in a box for the next 20-30 yrs to offer it to your child, who, is statistically unlikely to chose to wear it.

I do, but it's not a traditional wedding dress, it was my 2nd wedding and it was in Vegas. I also have no daughters, so I don't need to worry about passing it down.

I don't have it in my possesion, my MIL has kept it. I doubt my girls would want mine, maybe if they tore it abpart and used the material to make a new dress, but not the way it looks now.

I have my dress, but it will never fit my daughter.  My daughter is very fit, but I have a small bone structure, and my daughter's is larger.

I have mine but it was never preserved properly so it's yellowed pretty bad. My DD doesn't really like it so wouldn't wear it even if it wasn't yellowed.

God NO!  I hated it I would never force my daughter to wear it.

My mom (insert issues here) had a hissy fit that we were not getting married in HER (podunk midwest) town that I NEVER lived in.... so as a concession I bought my dress with her.  And of course it had to be in her (podunk little) town because heaven forbid she travel to where I lived (where she used to live until she moved "home") and allowed me to even try on my dream dress.  Nooooooo.   I dont think she even ever knew how totally disappointed I was with my wedding dress.
