I was one of those brides that was not happy with my first dress. It was a very beautiful dress but I just felt that it didn’t go with me or my venue, so I ended up selling it. I sold it here on weddingbee and I did end up selling it the same day I posted the dress. So I started wondering how long does it take to sell everything after your wedding is over? I also wondered if a lot of Brides here try to get all there money back or just want to sell what they have to get something back?

Ugh it’s taking me forever! I’ve sold larger items (thank God!), but the smaller items just don’t move?

I think it depends on how they are priced, honestly! Most people are looking for a really good deal for 2nd hand items – if it’s priced fairly, it should move!

I think I had at least 10 people interested in my centerpieces – i sold them almost immediately to a bee! Those were really the only items i needed to sell though.

It’ll be very difficult for me to sell my wedding dress… I am creating and sewing my own dress! After the work I put into it, I don’t think I want to sell… But what if some weddingbee bride wants it after I post a picture? I won’t know until the time comes.

This is what I look for ….
Person willing to negotiate
I don’t expect to pay the same price for something used, when I could get it new.

Around here, there is a twice yearly event called “The Wedding Garage Sale” where recently wed brides can sell all their wedding stuff. I think the JayCees put it on. Anyway, they have it at a hall, and brides can rent a table for $20, and people pay $5 to get in. The last one was in October and I scored some great decor stuff. I saw plenty of ladies selling their dresses, flower girl dresses, decorations, linens, silk flowers, and more. A few wedding dress places even rented space to sell their sample gowns. If your area doesn’t do this, maybe you could approach a charity with this idea as a fund raiser. Here, all the table and admission proceeds go to charity, and the brides get to keep all the money they make from selling their swag.
