Off subject a little.

But I got married and now am divorced. What do I do with the dress?

I gave mine to the Salvation Army and took the tax deduction. Every cent of it!

There's a breast cancer group that takes donated dresses, too - they resell them and the money goes to research, I think. You'd have to google them.

If you don't want to donate your dress, you can try to sell it on ebay.

For those who didn't get to see her profile:

Mia Callaway

Quote:
Formally educated at Spelman College and Georgia State University; Atlanta-based designer, Mia Callaway became aware of her desire to own her own business during her brief tour as a Registered Nurse.

Tapping into her passion for fashion and a unique talent for creating exquisite handmade silk flowers; Mia began designing one-of-a-kind wedding attire for a devoted private clientele, thus launching: Mia Callaway Couture Bridal Collection.

Today, Mia introduces: MC Signature Bridal Collection, presenting her timeless classics as well as fresh, new styles for 2005.

Serious about her craft, Mia travels in search of the finest fabrics, unusual trims, one-of-a-kind lace and beadwork. Presenting her clients with inspired design is of the utmost importance.
I LOVE supporting hometown folks!

Ah - one more thing

Quote:
The average client, Callaway said, is perhaps a bit more mature than many brides. She’s a professional woman usually, established in her career, and has “waited a little bit longer to get married.”

I read something in For Me Magazine yesterday about a place to donate your old wedding dress and they will donate 20% of the sale to the charity of your choice. I'll look it up when I get home.

The breast cancer group that I'm familiar with that does the huge bridal sale is Making Memories.

Here's the link: http://www.makingmemories.org/brides...astcancer.html

Since I posted in the engagement rings thread, I figured I'd bump this up to post my dress contenders, too. We're doing both an Indian ceremony and a non-denominational ceremony (I'm not religious, but I want to wear the white dress and walk down the isle and all that jazz). Wedding saris are usually red, so I wanted to tie the red into my wedding dress. I found these from Alfred Angelo that I really like:

First choice:


Second choice:


Third choice:

I love the first one. You could have gone with the classic Maggie Sottero "Temptress"- solid red with jeweled detail. I couldn't find a pic of it

We're still bouncing around with our wedding date, thanks to health insurance issues (and the fact that our families don't get along). I got my dress months ago, Maggie Sottero "Ella":

I don't even know if you're still looking for dresses, but this one is beautiful!

I finally have pictures of my dress which came in a couple of weeks ago!

Front:


Back:

The only thing really different about mine is the color. This one is a little bit darker than mine... mine is more "ivory" than "champagne"!
