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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

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?

@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.

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.
