      it can also be cut into long strips and used by the groom to hang himself once he realizes what he has gotten himself into

      People should do whatever they want with their bridal dress.  there is no one "right" course of action.

      Wouldn't the wedding dress be a little large for a baby?

    Since I was pregnant when I first married, I did not want to fit into that dress again so it went away and since there were five kids in the picture when I wed for the right reasons, I rented a dress I could not normaly afford and looked great for a fraction of the cost and none of the hassle! I found little reason to use space on a dress that is just going to sit there doing nothing for years and most likely never get worn again, by me or my girls.

      I completely agree, many ladies keep their wedding dress to pass it on the next generation. But I doubt these dresses will be worn later, unless it was a family heirloom passed down for generations. There's also a lot of task involved in storing the dress. It's not as simple as just hanging it in the warddrobe.
      Saving some money by renting the dress is a great move. You can also use more spare cash on the honeymoon.

        My dress was absolutely beautiful in its time (1979) but there's no way in heck my daughter (just engaged and planning a 2012 weddiing) would EVER want my dress.   lol   I know I wouldn't have want a "used" dress (heirloom or otherwise  lol  )

    For the sake of the new frugality I purchased all my bridal items from eBay.  For the sake of my new frugality, all items will be posted on eBay after the wedding.

    The wedding is today and I am already planning the exit strategy of all the one time items that hopefully can help someone else who is also cash strapped and struggling in these trying times.
