Selling a Wedding Dress
Pik n MixSubscriber
I’ve just talked my wife out of selling hers but she had rang around lots of bridal shops and some would act as agents and sell for her minus a small fee.Posted 4 years ago
If its by a well known designer then ebay is your best bet simply for the exposure it gets. I was shocked to find how much we could have got for Mrs Piks.organic355Member
weve tried to sell ours on ebay/gumtree a few times and no luck, quite disappointing as the outfit cost well over a grand!
One tip, dont use the images from the designers/labels website, ours kept getting taken down as soem petty person wouldnt let us use the stock images and kept reporting us for copyright. Quite shite if youve paid so much money and they the same person wants to scunner you getting some of your money back. Wifey didnt want to use images of her i the dress either.
Would also be interested to know about bridal shops acting as agents, wonder how much cut they would take?Posted 4 years agorighogSubscriber
My wife’s has been hanging around for almost twenty years now we really must get a box for it or something.
I don’t think there is anything wrong with selling them, however my mother got hers out of the Attic the other day, and it seemed like a great piece of family history and made me glad we had hung on to my wife’s.

never understood the point of spending huge on a dress you will only wear once.
No advise on selling as I dont wear dresses
That’s because you are a bloke.
Most (not all) girls dream of the day they will be wearing at least once, some gorgeous, flowing, concoction of a frock.
It was the best day of my life when I got married and for once I didn’t want to do it wearing a fleece or baggy cycling shorts 🙂
There are Bridal dress agency style shops which sell on your behalf and take a cut.Posted 4 years agoalfabusSubscriber
Her indoors got an ex catwalk dress from the Oxfam bridal shop for £50, had it taken in to fit her, then gave it back to the shop afterwards.
She regretted it for about 5 minutes when she got back from the shop, but has been happy about the decision ever since.
’twas a lovely frock too 🙂
