    Great post and tips for brides! If I had more time and knowledge, I may have wound up with a “previously loved” gown myself.

    The dress looks great on you.  I think most of this is good advice, but these types of situations don’t always work out so perfectly for everyone.

    Beautiful dress! Congrats on your deal! I’m on the other end and sold my Anne Barge gown on PreOwned. I had dress regret and purchased a 2nd, but the first still was a beautiful, pristine designer gown that hadn’t been altered. It took a while to sell, 8 months but ended up in DC with a girl who was looking for the dress at a bargain price. The only downside for a seller using paypal is the amount they deduct for a credit card transaction- for me it was over $40.
