I'm extra happy about it because 1) It's always nice to find out you have money coming your way, 2) I already got to fully enjoy this dress and felt as though it was well worth its value to me, and 3) Now another bride gets to love it and make incredible memories in it, too. Lastly, it's nice to have a vision and a plan and see it come to fruition. I may have been able to sell it myself online, but if not, it could end up still hanging in my closet months from now, and this is much more preferable for me.
So that's that. Part of me feels a tiny bit sad that it's not "my dress" anymore, but it'll always be my wedding dress, and I feel so good about it being used again. I hope it brings as much happiness to this couple as our wedding and our marriage have brought to us.
