@OnceUponATime:  Such a sweet story, and she’ll have that in her wedding memories forever 🙂 Wouldn’t it be interesting if it turned out she was a bee here, too.

That’s so great!… I am contemplating what I want to do with my dress after the wedding. I’ll never wear it again and it will just sit in a box forever.

@OnceUponATime:  The same happened to me, but I was the girl purchasing a pre-owned dress at 200$. The woman couldn’t stop smiling, she was very emotional about selling her dress (or should I say, finding her dress a new owner), and she was very excited when I tried it on as it needed no further alterations. She also showed me her wedding album. It’s funny how, at that moment, it wasn’t like a seller-buyer thing, but almost like a big sister showing pictures and giving tips to her little sister (I’m the oldest, I never had a big sister so I can only imagine it can be like that). 

I think it’s very generous of you ladies who allow budget brides to buy the dress of their dreams. I know it must be hard to say goodbye to such an important item from your wedding day, knowing it was selected so carefully, sometimes second-guessed, sometimes after a huge dress-dilemma. And it’s what makes it even more special I think, to get to wear a dress that brought so much joy to a bride, and hopefully as much to another. 🙂

*high five!* that’s awesome. 

I’d like to donate mine to a good cause or bride in need, but it’d also be perfect for shortening and dyeing, and then I could reuse it… I’m torn.

@OnceUponATime:  What a great new life, for your dress! My dress was a sample, and I plan to keep it in circulation after the wedding. It’s not like I can really spare the closet space anyway!

@OnceUponATime:  That is awesome! I’m all for selling and donating dresses. I’m not wearing it again, so why not give it to someone else to enjoy?

This is just awesome! I am in no way involved in this transaction, but it warms my heart just the same.

Thank you for sharing!

How did you go about selling your dress?? I posted my Martina Liana on here a few months ago and had a few hits but very low ballers or scammers.

@OnceUponATime:  Oh, that’s so nice. That’s exactly why I sold my Pfaltzgraff dishes so cheap, I just wanted someone to love them and use them. It’s such a great feeling. You made someone really happy. Go you!
