I’m currently trying to sell my dress, in no rush.
But curious, for those of you that were successful in selling your wedding dress.
- Where did you list it?
- Where was it successfully sold?
- And for how long was it listed?

I had one from a previous engagement 5 years ago & I never had any luck getting rid of it! We have a place here locally that will sell a new or used wedding dress for you & I took it up there about a month ago. They don’t pay you until they sale it and so far nothing.. Its a gorgeous dress too so I don’t get it.. Before I took it there I listed it on ebay & on craigslist.
Good luck with yours!!

I feel like I’m always posting on these threads, but having four dresses for sale makes me kind of a pro at this 🙂
1. Preownedweddingdresses, oncewed, bravobride, WB classifieds, Craigslist
2. Three sold on powd.com. One is still for sale.
3. The ones that sold were listed between 1-3 months. The unsold one has been there for 6 months. I usually start at a higher price higher than I want to get, then reduce the price after a while by 10% to move it up listings and regenerate interest.

I was thinking about you when I posted! I just couldn’t find a thread where you said which site helped you sold the dresses. 🙂
I currently have them on here and Oncewed.
In another couple months I might bite the bullet and put it in Preownedweddingdresses.com

Recycled bride is another good site to sell a wedding dress. You can list 1 dress at a time for free. I’ve also had good luck with craigslist and oncewed. I’ve listed dresses on the weddingbee classifieds, but never got a single response there. Also, I’ve sold 6 dresses. 1 on recycled bride, 2 on oncewed, and 3 on craigslist. They were listed around 6 weeks before they sold.

@Gerbera: I did not sell my dress but I bought it off smartbrideboutique.com in the process of searching I looked through craigslist, kijiji, and any consignment online store I could find for local listings.
Give it a try. Also ebay?

I’m having the hardest time getting my Craigslist listing to show up under my city & category.
It said it’s listed??
If I search for it I can’t find it. But if I click on the direct link it’s there.

@Gerbera: It can take 15-20 mins to show up in the listings. Be patient.

@Gerbera: Whoops, sorry … yeah, that’s not good. Is there a CS line you can call or email? I’ve listed tons on CL and haven’t ever had problems.

Yea, I emailed and they just sent me 50 million FAQ links that are on their website that I already looked at. 🙁
I think I might just delete it and try reposting in a couple days.

I listed mine (I had 2) on here, oncewed.com, preownedweddingdresses.com, and did a couple rounds on Ebay.
I sold one on preownedweddingdresses.com and one on Oncewed. It took both gowns 3 months. I got about 50% of the original sale price for each.
