What do you do with them?  Anyone repurpose them or just give them to goodwill?  I would like to use the fabric to repurpose them.  Seems like such a waste.  Any inspiration would be helpful.

My mom keeps saying she wants to make some throw pillows out of a cinnamon colored one I wore in my sisters wedding.  It could make a dozen pillow probably since I was 8 months pregnant when I wore it.
if you sew clothes you could always make "princess" dresses for a little girl out of them.

you could see if your local high school or community theatre could use them for costumes or  make change/cosmetic bags,hair bows,wrap a plastic hairband or add elastic and makes a dressier one for you or darling girl in your life,Robin

Make them into prom dresses or if you would like to make some money off them take them to a Consignment store

I think I would use them to make a quilt.  Think of all the memories making and having the quilt would bring.  Nothing elaborate, just large squares.

Ok...I'm trying to make a summer dress for dd since the fabric is thin.  I'm just not good at this.

I had a prom and homecoming dress, well, 2 of them, but I gave them to a girl from the local school who didn't have the money for one...problem was, that she was about 2 sizes bigger than the dresses...but her mom took the back out of one of the dresses, and put a lace up back on it, and let me say, for not being the right size, it looked great when they got done with it...

thats really nice.  Truthfully I was sending them to my cousin who teaches in a VERY poverty stricken school district, but then got selfish and decided to repurpose the fabric for my dd.
