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.

LOL, nobody ever does! I'm thinking it's better to just let your bridesmaids pick whatever they want within a given color range, and then if they hate the dress and think it's a waste, they've only themselves to blame.

When I got married the second (and final) time, I told my one bridesmaid to make herself a dress in either of two colors I liked, and that's what she did. I've no clue if she ever wore the dress again, but it was inexpensive enough not to matter!

Well I doubt I would do that . . .

Yes I think that's a great idea . . . too late for this woman!

After spending the better part of the last 12 months having lengthy discussions about necklines, train lengths, and the shade spectrum of the color white as a bridesmaid, I agree with you without a lick of hesitation. Absurd is right.

I agree.

No, I don't think so.

I actually still have my dress and headpiece but never got it cleaned and preserved. It was another $100 that I did not want to spend after getting married as I didn't think it would be worth it.

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.


Yep.
