Yes, I did and I still have the receipt from almost 50 years ago (married as a child!). LOL

I DID keep it for many, many years, had it altered so I could wear it again, wore it once and then put on some weight -it did not fit me after that, and also I would not have worn it again as even though it had been altered, it was still white and looked like a wedding dress.

I can't remember what eventually happened to it -I think it discoloured and I threw it out with much difficulty!

I designed and kept my beautiful gown which was a self-patterned cream coloured silk over a very pale coral lining so when the sun shone through the layers it looked just like gorgeous shells!!! (It was a garden wedding) It was a dress with no lace at all,while the fitted top had off the shoulder puff sleeves (hence the appearance of being shell-like!). The skirt was full ankle-length, falling from the deep V waist. Again,the delightful shell-like colour was shown off as the sunlight shone through the fabric layers! Being a basic and classic style which I do not believe will date in the fashion stakes, I hope that one day it may be worn again,by someone very special.
I don't think mine was very elaborate but it was beautiful! A duchesse satin dress with lace applique and a lace overcoat with a medium train. It had little Swarovski crystal beads sewn into the lace as well, so there was sparkle. I loved wearing it and could never part with it!
Just Lovely :)

Perhaps not so elaborate and yes I do stil have it.
My answer is similar to yours Finy.

I have had two, the first was Thai Silk, it really was beautiful with covered little buttons all down the back and a high Chinese type of collar with long sleeves with unusual cuffs....

The second one was a short cocktail type of dress (both cream), it was very pretty.

I don't know what happened to them though! I kept them for a long time but over the years moving etc...they have disappeared unfortunately as am now more nostalgic as an older person...

I still have my wedding dress - I don't know if you'd call it elaborate but I did have quite a big train at the back

Not as elaborate as this one, but I loved it. Still have it wrapped in blue tissue paper in a box on top of my wardrobe.
Had a long Thai Silk, off white, with Military style collar, so I could attach my Mother's beautiful brooch as my 'something old'. It was just 'normal' down to waist & then flared-out at one side with inverted pleat.
My 'going away' outfit was a full length Watermelon' coloured coat over the top. Both gowns were worn as Ball Gowns for a few years, as this is what I wanted, so could get use out of them.
My shoes & clutch bag were made in Hong Kong, with same material covering as dress.
Eventually gave them away to charity.
Yes I did my first time and the pic is very close to the dress.
My husband threw it out, without telling me when we separated, after being married many years.
My dress was nothing fancy, which was just how i wanted it. It was a mini length, pure white silk, tiny covered buttons down to the waist, with long sleeves. No lace nor beading. I still have it in a box with white tissue paper, in the spare room. & I still have the shoes which were coloured in a white material, even though I never wore them after the wedding. We're nearly up to our 48th wedding anniversary! (I've got off the point of the question there.)
