Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow

I've decided to sell my wedding gown. My beautiful, fabulous Barcelona gown. When I picked my gown up from the bridal salon, I thought to myself, I will have my gown forever.. it's just too special to ever, ever part with.

I mean, I still put it on at least once a month and sit in it and watch TV, twirl in front of the mirror and freak my neighbors out when I go to check the mail in it. Crazy right? I know but it makes me smile. One time my Hubby came home early and I had it on with my veil on, no less. He just laughed and I was like "what?", as if it was totally normal for me to be sitting in the living room with my wedding gown on.

 
  


Anyhoo, I'm finally at a place that I can part with it. Hopefully, it will bring as much joy and fabulousness to another brides wedding day as it did mine.

that's cool that you're open to selling it and moving on to many other wonderful gowns (that i'm sure you'll have) over the course of your marriage! i'm not married, but i imagine that i'll follow suit when i do get married. you looked beautiful, and i'm sure it will make another bride's day!

Hi Maemae,

Thanks for stopping by!! I got my earrings from the bridal salon where I purchased my gown, La Belle Bridal, in Jersey City, NJ.

I had bought 4 pairs of earrings to go with my gown before I finally tried the gown on for the first time.. but none of them were "the ones" until I found these.. they were perfect. =)

Best of luck with your wedding planning and congrats!
