What are you doing with your wedding dress?

My wedding was over a month ago and I still have my dress and veil hanging on a hook on our bedroom door.  I have no idea what to do with it.  Are any of you getting it cleaned to resell, preserving it, or just having it hang in the back of your closet?  I'd love to resell it, but the back of the dress got super dirty and I don't know if it's worth the money to clean it and then trying to sell it.

I was thinking about doing a TTD, but I just chopped off my hair and am wondering if it's worth the money.  I didn't get too many pictures that I liked with me in my white dress since I had 3 other outfits.

I got my cleaned by WedClean and it's now in a very pretty box, all ready for a future daughter to play in or wear on her day.

there's actually a non-profit org that takes formal wear - mostly prom dresses - for young ladies who cannot absorb the cost of one...

Wooo, yeah marinag - I think someone suggested Brides Against Breast Cancer in a post a while back... I was originally looking to buy a dress there to support them, but my timing was a little off.  Maybe I could donate instead... oooo got to reconsider the honeymoon 15/TTD shoot... http://bridesagainstbreastcancer.org/

Im going to keep my dress and veil, or maybe sell my veil. Will either use the fabric from my dress for my first (furture) child's christening. Or keep it for when (or if) I have a daughter that gets married so she can modify it or attach a piece of the fabric to her dress as her "something old"

My gown has been hanging in the closet since the wedding.  I need to have it cleaned and ready to sell.  Need to recoup some money!
