and will you pass it down to your daughter
I have mine. I have no DDs to pass it too. Maybe my grand DD would want 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 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.
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.
