I don’t have much advice on how to go about re-selling the dress but I think this dress is absolutely gorgeous (despite it not really being my style) and you look stunning in it, wrinkled and all!

but if the wedding dress is an important part of your dream wedding then I would suggest going for the one you really really love.

Argh, can’t get over how lovely you look in the dress! 🙂

you look really good but agree with PP that you look amazing in the other dress you tried on!

Your other dress is stunning on you. When i first saw it my first thought was “oh my gosh, its amazing!” You should go with the one you feel best in. I don’t have any advice for selling though…

AddieNicole:  Have you purchased the one you posted about? Or not yet?

Either way I LOVE the one you first posted a lot more than this one. Yes, this one is lovely but something about the other dress just made you shine. The sweetheart neckline suits you a LOT better than this one does.


Regarding selling this one, I’m not much help. I think that how much you sell it for depends on how much you paid for it. Knock maybe 20% off (I’m just guessing at a number here haha) since you’ve never worn it. Will the marks spot clean (or will that leave water marks). It would be nice for you to clean and steam it before selling it I think.

AddieNicole:  I have no advice about selling a dress. I am only posting to tell you how totally jealous I am of your great hair. You look adorable in short in hair. I wish I did. 

FWIW, you look fab in both dresses. I’d hold onto it in case you don’t end up getting the other dress for what ever reason. Then you have a back up dress just in case. You can sell it anytime!

Take it to a bridal tailor and have them steam and spot clean it for you. If you do it yourself you risk damaging it and decreasing the sale value more (especially since fabrics like satin are susceptible to water stains). Another Bee suggested 20% off which sounds about right especially since it still had tags on it and has not been worn, make a note on your sale post you had the dress professionaly cleaned and steamed. 

I have had many brides I have worked with have success with this site:

Both gowns are very pretty but as soon as you call the other gown ‘THE ONE’ I think you know the answer… What’s the return policy at the store, or was it a final sale? If you have the designer name/style you could see what the dress is selling for on the preowned sites.

Both of those dresses are gorgeous on you and I don’t think that you can go wrong with either, but get the one that you like more.

AddieNicole:  You look beautiful in both of them but you are smiling so big in the the dress you just got. I know that first dress picture, that you posted, you could just be focussing on taking the picture, But you just look so happy in the dress you have already bought. What did your mom think? Good Luck, which ever one you decide on!
