    i voted no, because my parent's bought my dress in 1983 and would have gone ballistic.

    if i had bought my own, then definitely a solid maybe!

    First wedding, expensive white gown, marriage lasted 9 months. Trash? No
    Second wedding, inexpensive dress, bought on sale AND a discount.
    Trash? No

    In the future if my dd would like to wear gown #1 or use the fabric from EITHER gown or dress, I would be honored. Just call me old fashioned.

    I do find the reasoning behind the tradition very poignant, just not for me.

    I say yes, since Jason Margarita said it doesn't get ruined. Mine has been sitting in a closet for 16 years doing nothin - might as well have soaked it!
