there is bravobride.com no fee charge! But I read an article about selling used wedding dresses. And in the article said that preownweddingdress.com is the best to sell a used wedding gown.

Well I have looked at preowned a ton, I have not purchased anything. But I am still looking! I have read many a post here on WB of women who’ve gotten their dresses off POWD.com, so they do sell on there! I’d say to list it here, craigslist, bravobride, and ebay. I noticed the other day ebay lets you do 3-4 free postings a month now and you can do it as a set price, you don’t need to put it up as an auction! The cost of POWD.com might be worth it if those others don’t garner any interest.

eBay charges exhorbitant final value fees. I used to sell on eBay, and IMHO it is not worth it.

I sold my 1st dress (not the one!!) on Kijiji – there are free ads, it is similar to craigslist.  But I had it listed on preownedweddingdresses.com as well for about a month with no hits…it was in the “OTHER” category though, so not too many people look there I think!!

If you have a brand name / designer gown over $500, it’s probably worth posting on preownedweddingdresses.com for $25!  Good luck!

oh! i forgot to add i did buy “the one” off POWD.com, so yup, those dresses sell! My colleague also has got a lot of hits on her dress – but she has it listed something like 75% off retail.

I’m trying to help my mom sell her dress, and I’ve used the Classifieds here and OnceWed. I haven’t received any communications from WB, and only scammers from OW. If you find a better way, I can’t wait to hear it. 😉

I haven’t sold mine but I bought it used.  I looked on preowned a lot but ended up buying it through bravobride.com.  I’d definitely suggest putting it on there.  It really seemed like it grew a lot just during the time I was looking.

I haven’t sold one, but I did buy a dress from preownedweddingdresses.com! I think the dress was listed for quite a while before I bought it but I had zero issues with my transaction. I highly recommend using escrow.com (which is what they recommend) for the actual transaction. It allows you both to create a contract, then the buyer submits their money to the escrow company, then the seller ships merch and once buyer says their merchandise looks good (or the agreed upon time period elapses and you don’t hear anything back- I think ours was 7 days?) the money is released to the seller. Easy, plus you get to make your own terms!

Did you try OnceWed? Their listings are free.

There are some physical stores that will buy your dress from you and sell it as well-of course, I’m sure they profit off of it, and I don’t know what ind of deal you might get, but I think that may be the route I end up going to not have to worry about it 🙂

I’ve heard some great success stories of preownedweddingdresses.com. Also, ebay.

Check with local boutiques as well to see what deal you could get there!

What dress do you have, by the way?
