I donated my wedding dress. As I write this, my wedding dress is making it’s way by snail mail to Brides Against Cancer.
Was I sad to see it go? A little, maybe. But it’s a polyester David’s Bridal dress. It’s not heirloom quality. Even if some as-yet-unconceived daughter wanted to wear a dress exactly the style mine was, it wouldn’t be worth wearing.
Donating a cheap wedding dress to charity involves a certain amount of suspended disbelief. I pretend that my dress will be treasured and worn again by some other starry-eyed bride. Not eventually turned into a Halloween costume.
Who would do that, you ask? I’ll tell you who.
