For most brides, the decision is easy. They have their dress cleaned, preserved, and pack it away; perhaps in hopes that someday their own daughter might say “I do” in that very dress. But there are many other ideas to showcase that ever important dress.
For brides who have a bit less sentimental attachment to their dress, a great option is to sell the dress or even donate it. Brides Against Breast Cancer accepts gown donations that they then sell to raise money to support breast cancer patients. Passing on your dress to another bride not only helps bring their wedding dreams to life, but also contributes to a good cause.
For the daring bride, a trash the dress photo session can be a fun way to have a last hurrah with your dress.

Dress your daughter up in your wedding gown while she is still young for a beautiful photo. You'll always have the cherished memory of her wearing your gown and it will be an amazing display on her own wedding day.
Your gown can also become a family heirloom. Have a baptismal dress made from the fabric of your dress. Or use the fabric as a covering on your wedding album.
