We were married two years ago, and I had a beautiful wedding dress
that has since been sitting in a closet (professionally cleaned, in the appropriate box). Obviously, it's not something I can wear to any other occasion. Even if we were to renew our vows in the future I'm not sure I'll fit in it by then (I'm not sure I'd fit in it now
). We don't have any female relatives anywhere close to a marriageable age, and it's a really small dress so it's unlikely they'd fit into it either when they grow up. We're adopting a boy and there's no chance of surprise pregnancies.
I'm a very practical sort, so I brought up selling it, and my husband was rather apoplectic, though he didn't have any suggestions on what to do
with it. My mother bought the dress for me and would probably be upset if I got rid of it, although she'd eventually get over it. I have the feeling she's still hoping for a granddaughter because she mentioned keeping it "just in case." Her other suggestion had something to do with tailoring it into a baptism gown or something else Christian-baby-related, I can't remember, but I'm not Christian (which she knows, but whatever, that's another question)
So what do I do with it? If I sell it, will I regret it someday? (Note: I have not even opened the box in two years.)
