PreOwnedWeddingDresses and Recycled Bride are two sites where you can list them for free. Selling a dress is NOT easy. I also had two dresses and have been trying to unload one of my dresses for over 6 months- I had it listed on the above sites plus Ebay, plus the Classifieds here! I just NOW have an inquiry from what seems to be a serious buyer.  Just be very clear with your description, measurements and any other information you can provide plus LOTS of photos.  Good luck!

@ddavila2001:  Those are the exact two sites I used in my search for a sample gown. 🙂

Have as many pictures from as many different angles as possible.  Give precise, exact measurements.  Have your dress dry-cleaned before you sell it and state in the ad that you’ve had it drycleaned.

I just sold a used dress through preownedweddingdresses.com within 5 days after I posted the ad… I bought the used dress from a charity organization. I decided to sell it out because my parents didn’t like it.

I got tons of inquiries (more than 20 people) within the first 3 days. Now I’m just hoping the buyer won’t return the dress to me. (I already did my best to describe the flaws of the dress.)

I have sold two gowns of my own through RecycledBride.com. Take very nice clear photos of the gown, I modeled the gowns myself or I found other brides in the gown to show the gown in action.  Have a box ready to ship the dress and know that the shipping charges would be.  I got what I paid for the gowns, only because I spend under $200 for both of them.  I would not imagine getting full price for a $1000 gown though.

 

I have two more to sell!  I posted i on these sites and kept a spreadsheet so I can update it easily.
