Hi all

What should I do with wedding dress? Husbands left me and our baby girl and am in the process of sorting our new house out so sorting out all of our things.

I'm thinking I could donate it to a local charity? Other option is to try and sell it so I use the funds for my daughters bedroom furniture in our new house together.

I'd probably realistically get 200-300 for it, it cost me 1000 but there are stains on the underskirt.

What have you done with yours?

Burn it! Why would you inflict marriage on anyone else!

I chopped mine up for a friend to use as a Halloween costume.

Mine originally cost £1500, couldnt even get £100 on ebay for it so i donated it to oxfam.

There is this charity Cherished Gowns who turn donated wedding dresses into outfits for babies who are stillborn or die shortly after birth.

I was going to suggest cherished gowns or similar or the charity shop.
