Have been hanging mine in the loft just in a sort of protector case thingy bu am shortly moving to a place with NO LOFT!! Eeek - where can I put it? Would an underbed thingy be suitable?
Help - tell me what you do with yours and inspire me!

Chucked unceremoniously in the back of a cupboard.

Don't really know why I keep it tbh. Not like it still fits me I'll wear it again but it's been hanging around getting in my way for the last 14 years. Bit like DH really. grin

The dc used it for their dressing up box.
It was not a traditional style dress though, and I am not terribly sentimental about it.

Hmmm... Mine is stuffed in an Office carrier bag in the loft somewhere, still mingy and covered with wine etc..... I do intend to do something about it one day!

I had mine dry cleaned and boxed at the cleaners. They put it in beautiful box and folded it so that the bodice is on the top. It is wrapped in acid free tissue.

It then slides under the bed but looks pretty enough to be out on the top of a wardrobe or something if you needed it to.

I gave mine to the YMCA shop.

Mine is at my mum's house which is where I took it off after the wedding. i fully intend on leaving it there until she gets fed up of it. So far no pointed remarks grin.

Same as tummytickler Mine was used by DD and her friends for dressing up, so it's had many happy outings! Now is stuffed in bin bag and stored in underbed draw. I was a Berketex bride circa 1983 smile
