    One of my grandsons LOVED the feel of satin. He had a piece of satin that he dragged around until he was about three. (It was washable)

    Why not take it to a seamstress and see if she can make a new gown out of it??? Like they did on Project Runway this year.

    before you use it all up on other things. can you create a small picture of it, using the original fabrics and trims, for framing? that would become the heirloom. then you could attack the rest of the fabric knowing that the style was preserved in it's original fabrics. the baptismal idea is wonderful and i have done that for customers, as well as confirmation dresses. you could also make ring-bearers pillows and put them away for future use. just make sure to label everything with it's history. bouquet wraps and other accessories are all nice ideas. what about the veil? down the line, someone will be sorry.

    I love the idea of making the dress into a baptism or christening gown. That is such a great idea I may have to do that to my old dress.

    When I was little, my mom made a beautiful bassinette skirt from her sister-in-law's lacey wedding dress. It went clear to the floor around the bassinette and was the prettiest thing. Maybe you could make one of those, or mini-versions for little girls play bassinettes.

    Would make a beautiful "first communion" dress too...depending on your faith...or for a confirmation, which I think all Christian faiths celebrate. I love the Christening gown idea too Whatever you use it for, make sure you make a special label stating it was your wedding dress and the date worn etc. :)
