Ladies I need your help and maybe some advice!
I bought my dress and after 6 months of waiting, it finally came in. Its a beautiful dress and I do love it, however I just can’t fight this feeling that I should have gotten a lace dress. My decision to buy this dress may have been a little impulsive, so now I feel like I need to go try on some lace mermaid style dresses just to see if I like them better.
I’m just wondering if you think I could sell this dress fairly quickly? I know im not going to get what I paid for it, but I guess I’d be happy with anything to put towards the purchase of a new dress. Im not officially selling it yet, I just want feedback on what the success has been for other bees in this situation.
It’s a size 4, no alterations, the bustle straps are currently being added.
and this is what the bustle will look like:
maybe I’m just being paranoid, I know dress regret is common, but for some reason I don’t feel nearly as excited as I did when I ordered it. 🙁 I just feel like there is so much pressure to find that dress that makes you want to cry!!

If you’re absolutely sure you want to sell and move on to something else, price it VERY aggressively (like 50% or more off what you paid – not retail, but what you paid for it, not including alterations). The start looking for something else.

You look amazing in that dress.
But, if you’re sure you want to sell it, I would think you can. I am probably going to buy something new, but just from looking around it seems like there is a lack of second hand dresses in smaller sizes, and I would assume there is some demand for them.

I was an “anti-bride” until I met my fiance. i really didn’t care about weddings and totally didn’t understand why you are supposed to cry when you try on “your” dress. I still don’t and I have my dress, so if that’s the only thing stopping you, then DO NOT keep looking.
In terms of selling the dress, I don’t think you’ll know until you try. It’s a pretty dress, but I’m guessing it’s easier to sell “Adoraes” then it is to sell more unique dresses like yours.

I would get really great pictures of it. Pricing and great pictures can sell almost anything. 🙂
