Wedding Traditions and Other Information To Help With Your Wedding Plans


What Are You Going to Do With The Wedding Dress

The wedding is all over and in addition to your memories you have a wedding dress and wedding jewelry that is taking up space.  You’ll probably never wear the dress again and you may never wear your bridal jewelry again, so what do you do with it?At some time after the wedding you will be wondering about this because of the space that these things take up.  It’s not that you don’t love your bridal jewelry and dress; it’s just that it can no longer serve a purpose.While it was once one of the most important things in your life,now it is only occupying space.  Funny how this happens to just about every bride!

Not sure what to do with your bridal jewelry and dress?Maybe you don't spend a lot of time with sentimental thoughts in which case selling it might make sense.  Even if you can only sell it for 50% of what you paid for it all, you may be able to pay off some of those wedding bills with the money that you make from it.  To some women they think this is silly or just plain wrong, but for other women that do not form attachments to material things, selling their wedding dress and jewelry seems perfectly acceptable.  You need to decide for yourself if you are comfortable selling these things as they are an important part of your history.

If you know that you don’t want to sell your bridal jewelry and dress there is still another option:  store it.  Storing your wedding jewelry really won’t be difficult as you can just put the things back in the boxes that they came in and put them in a drawer or safety deposit box for safe keeping.The wedding jewelry is easy because it doesn't require much space but the wedding dress takes up quite a lot of room. 

Luckily, many bridal shops offer cleaning and storage services that will allow you to bring home your dress in a box and store it in a closet, under the bed, or wherever else is convenient for you.Preserving your wedding gown means that you will be able to have it later for sentimental thoughts amd maybe give the dress to your daughter or a special friend for use in the future.  Whether you choose to store your bridal jewelry and dress or sell it, take some time to think about your options, especially if you decide to sell, because once it’s gone, it’s gone!
