She gave away her wedding gown on Facebook. Soon others did the same.

Read the full story in the Washington Post.

“I didn’t want to spend so much money on a dress that I would put in a box and never wear again,” she said. “That’s just not me.”

So, Stulgis came up with a plan. After her wedding on May 6, she would gift the dress to a bride-to-be who otherwise couldn’t afford a gown.

“I knew it wasn’t something I wanted to keep,” said Stulgis, who paid for the dress in monthly installments up until just before her wedding.

Knowing how exorbitant gowns can get — the average price of a bridal gown last year was about $1,800 — she decided to give it away rather than sell it.
