Mine is at my grandma's house still, I think. Or it's at my mom's house (10 years later). There was a kitchen fire a couple of months after my wedding, and my dress was still just in a pile in my old bedroom there. In the whole insurance process, it got cleaned and preserved. I don't think I would have gotten it preserved on my own. I am bummed that they put my shoes and my veil in with the dress - I would have liked to keep those out, but don't want them enough to bust them out.
One of these days I'll figure out what to do with it. Since it's in CO and I live in FL. I like the idea of using it for baptism/first communion for any daughters. Or donating it. Who knows?
