Free wedding dress!?

Hi ladies,


One of my cousins offered to give me her wedding dress this morning. She got it but never actually wore it herself. I don't know if I should take it or not. Also it's a style that I would probably never pick out myself. Should I just suck it up and wear it since it's free?

I would definitely try it on! You never know--I hated the kind of dress I thought I would always go for.


However, if it is absolutely not your style, and you aren't in love with it, I wouldn't take it. You might be setting yourself up for dress regret later.


But--Woohoo for kind cousins!! The offer is SO nice of her!!

I agree with Jess...try it on first see how you feel when you see yourself in it. Then make a decision. If you don't like it then don't wear it.

Yes, agree with the other ladies that you should at least try it on but don't feel obligated to take it unless you love it. 


I feel every bride should have "The Dress" and never settle for less.  I obviously understand that you have to keep budget in mind and I'm not referring to finances by saying that, I simply mean never settle for a dress that you don't adore.

Try it on and see how you like you it. I think once you try it on and see it on you, you'll know the answer your looking for! ;)

Agree with all the other ladies! That's great if you can get a free dress, but definitely do not suck it up and take it if it is not you. You definitely don't want to look back on your pictures and have dress regret later on!
