Don’t have any advice on selling the dress…but so excited for you that you found your dream gown!!

Which one did you end up choosing?

I bought a used altered dress.  The dress orginally cost $1800 and i bought it for $350.  You can sell it but you will have to lower the price

I think it will be hard to sell because you’ve got to find someone who 1) wants the same dress you wore AND 2) is the same height or shorter than you.  You’ve just elminated 50% of the possible pool of buyers.

Your dress is ahhhhhhmazing!

I have posted a few photos!

(Due to my fear of of my dress falling down during our nuptials I panicked last minute and wore my backup dress at church….but I still got to ROCK my turquoise/ivory “off beat” gown at the reception!)

I’ve seen people hem their wedding gowns and have the seamstress not cut the fabric but tuck it under so taller brides can just undo the seam and have the length intact. Definitely worth considering!

I bought a used dress. It was a huge plus for me that the seller had had it altered to her measurements, which happened to be the same as mine (including height). I think that if the right person sees it, then having it altered won’t be a problem. But it will eliminate a lot of potential buyers because not everyone is 5’2″.
