Extending the Life (or Speeding Up the Death): My Wedding Dress

I loved my wedding dress. It fit great, suited my personality, photographed well and was a great deal at $300 dollars. (A "thank you" again to Dan's step-mother for helping me pick it out).

Even with lots of appreciation for the garment, I can't fathom paying hundreds of dollars to preserve it then keeping it in my closet for decades — for what?

So, tomorrow... we "trash the dress." I feel that some fun photos will be better memories than an old, stiff dress.

The subject (Mori Lee dress from a consignment shop in Panama City, Florida):

A few neat photos I found during my hunt for TTD photos:

This is such a brilliant idea! Can't wait to see the photos- oh and $300?! What a steal!

$300 plus less than $100 in alterations.

Today was so fun. I can't wait to see what Steffi, Laura and Steve come up with!
