The consignment shops near me have pretty crappy policies. Worn dresses are 50% of retail. The shop keeps 50% of the selling price.

I would try preownedweddingdresses.com first… 

I haven’t made a decision myself yet however…

My dress is custom made and my mother is a little against me selling it because she paid so much for it. But I honestly don’t want it and would never pass it down to my daughter, so my mother agreed to make christening outfits for my kids and she also wants to make curtains out of my veil for my daughters room (hopefully I don’t have all boys LOL)

I am also a very sentimental person; normally, but I will be selling mine after we get married. I don’t see the point in keeping it. It will just take up closet space, and I would much rather take the money from the resale of my gown and buy new clothes that I will wear for more than just one day.

I will probably keep mine, at least for the time being.  I am hoping to have children, although passing it down to them wouldn’t be a factor in my decision.  I just couldn’t bear to sell it right off the bat.  As KLP2010 stated, consignment shops aren’t great.  If your dress makes it through the day in good shape, Preowned, oncewed, bravobride, etc. might be better choices.  You could also donate it to Brides for Breast Cancer, if recouping money isn’t too much of a factor.

I am wondering how hard it is to sell your wedding dress. It seems there are so many online for sale. Anyone have any idea? I am planning to sell mine.
