Women reveal what they did with their wedding dresses after the big day

From the business-like to the sentimental, everyone had a different answer.

Many say it’s the most important dress you will wear, but what happens with a wedding dress after the big day?

A handful of married women shared their plans for their dresses on social media website Whisper – and the answers range from the business-like to the highly sentimental.

1 I donated it to a company that makes them into tiny outfits for premature babies that have passed away.

2 I will sell mine. It’s so poof and takes up a lot of space. I’ll buy furniture for our new hose instead.

3 I got it cleaned and preserved…it’s now boxed up in my spare room.

4 I got a simple, cheap, gorgeous dress that I was able to combine well in my sense of style. Everytime I wear it out I feel good and my husband gets all cute and stuttery.

5 My idiot husband sold it at a garage sale while I was at work…for $5!

6 Sometimes, I wear mine while sitting at home watching Netflix and eating mac and cheese.

7 I had the bottom cropped off to make it a knee-length dress for my daughter.

8 I sold it. I don’t need it any more.

9 My dress is hanging in my grandma’s closet. It was her wedding dress, and also my mum’s wedding dress, so I would like to hopefully have a daughter to pass it down to.
