so you got divorced and to celebrate the event you have a trash the dress party, that includes spilling wine, dirt, whatever it takes to trash the wedding gown.

I think paying a lot of money for a dress you will only wear one day is absurd in the first place, so whatever else you do with it is just further absurd in my book.

I wore a white linen jacket from Ann Taylor with a navy skirt. It was a nice jacket and I wore both pieces for years.

ten dollars or ten thousand dollars, still makes no sense to me why she trashed it. she could have donated it to charity, soemone would have worn it again.

my brother's second marriage was like that too, he wore a nice suit and she a nice evening dress, they've worn those over again.

my gown was custom made, but my brides maids dresses were from a store rack, they were this shimmery material and the floral detail matched the flowers they carried. those were just cocktail dresses and technically, they could have worn them again but nobody did either!

What is the difference between trashing it and hanging it in a closet for ffifty years? In neither case is the dress doing anybody any good.

I can see how that might be fun and liberating. Personally, I'd rather sell the dress and use the money for something MORE fun ... like a weekend getaway with the girls or something.

Granted, the dress from my first marriage was only $400 new (on sale from about $750), so reselling it wouldn't get me much of anywhere. It's still hanging in my mom's cedar closet.

whatever BORD, Lol. i don't think she should keep it in her closet for fifty years either, that's something I would do.
