What do I do with the dress I never wore?
Thank you for posting my last question to you (I wrote about not being sure about the guy I was engaged to). Ultimately, we broke up. I've remained a reader- despite not being a prospective bride any longer and have enjoyed your blog ever since.
When I thought I was getting married I got excited and bought a vintage wedding dress online. I never showed it to anyone, and only told my best friend (and my ex-fiance). When things fell apart I just shoved the dress back into its box and haven't opened it since (2.5 years).
Is it weird to keep the dress? I'm a fairly superstitious person, so it sort of feels like bad luck. On the other hand: I love it and it was only $250. But I'm frightened of being some strange spinster with a wedding dress in my closet, like a Miss Havisham who didn't even make it down the aisle.
What do you think?
Hopefully Not Havisham
Give it away.
You won't meet your (new) dream guy until you do.
