To Sell or Not to Sell?
The big question among many wedded brides
is whether or not to sell their wedding dress. If you are
uncertain about selling your wedding dress, we have compiled
a list of points for you to consider.
Your Wedding Investment
Your wedding day is the single biggest
invest for many wedding couples, next to buying a house.
The big difference is that your wedding day will not provide
many financial returns, that is unless your guests are generous
and give you piles of cash.
An Expensive Keepsake
Your wedding dress is likely to be one
of the biggest investments on your wedding day, next to
the reception and honeymoon of course. For many wedded brides,
the wearing of a wedding dress is the most poignant event
during the entire wedding ceremony.
Nostalgia and Preservation
After your wedding day, you will most
likely want to keep your wedding dress for either nostalgic
reasons, or as a family heirloom. If this is the case, you
will need to invest further in a professional dress preservation
service, otherwise your dress will deteriorate over time.
Changing Wedding Fashions & Trends
If you are planning on keeping your wedding
dress to pass on to your family, you will need to consider
the rapidly changing wedding trends and fashions. Your wedding
dress may be outdated in time, or simply be the wrong size,
color, or style.
Life after your Wedding
For many wedded brides in modern times,
life after the wedding day will involve working full-time,
paying off a house, and having children. It is during these
times that sell a wedding dress becomes an enticing consideration,
especially considering the fact that many preserved wedding
dresses are never worn again.
Our Expert Opinion
Whilst we acknowledge the utmost importance
of a wedding dress to many brides, it is often difficult
to ignore the large investment in both the initial purchasing
and wearing of a wedding dress, and the ongoing preservation
We believe that if you are considering
selling your wedding dress, then you need to make the decision
shortly after your wedding day, before your wedding dress
fades in color or drops out of fashion.
Preparing your Dress for Sale
You may need to dry clean your wedding
dress prior to sale, and consider the additional costs
of delivery. You also need to consider that many brides-to-be
will want to try-on your wedding dress prior to purchase.
Also, a single wedding dress can range
in size, so you need to give careful thought to the size
category that you feel your dress best fits.
Be prepared for brides-to-be to negotiate
a better price, and remember that most brides-to-be that
you will be contacted by will be looking for a bargain.
Allow for potential buyers that may live
in distant states or countries.

When you add information about your wedding
dress, be sure to highlight as many features as you can.

A-line, or off the shoulder, even provide hip and bust measurements.
Be as descriptive as you can about your dress features.
If you follow these simple selling steps,
you are sure to find the right buyer quickly.
