post-wedding fallout

I stopped by eBay just now to see what kind of a market there is for wedding dresses online. Not much of one, apparently. It sort of makes sense: there have to be a lot of women out there who have wedding dresses hanging in their closets, unused. While browsing, I stumbled across an interesting site:

Brides 'n Bumps

Their opening quote is "Whoever said you had to compromise on your wedding gown just because you're pregnant obviously didn't visit $OUR_SITE." Now there's a niche market in the vast spectrum that is the wedding scam industry.

I wonder if they sell velvet covers for shotguns?

Any opinions on what to do with a post-wedding wedding dress? I could go pay $200 to have it preserved in a special box (nah). I could save it and make a baby bunting for my first child (nah). I could throw it away (that just seems wrong: it's a totally usable dress, with accessories). I could try lending/giving it to someone else (that didn't work the one time that somebody did borrow it). Does anybody know if there's a wedding warehouse where I could bring it? Does Salvation Army accept this sort of thing? Is there a charity that would take it?
