Okay I found my dream dress before, for $900. That was way out of my price range so I didn’t get it. A few months later, I found the dress I am wearing in the pic now and I put a deposit down on it and started paying on the dress. I only owe $149 now and the dress total price is $489. I just found my dream dress again and its only $60 on ebay. The ONLY thing I don’t like about the dress is it’s white as I originally tried it on in a french vanilla color (slightly darker than ivory) but I thought, for $60 I could get over it. But I would have to bid on the dress on ebay for one thing and for another, I’m not sure if I would be able to get out of the no exchange no return policy I have on the other dress. What should I do? I have to make a decision on this very quickly as they are only biding 2 more days on the dress and there is 1 more bider for it right now besides me.

First off I think you should see if your even able to get out of the no exchange no return. However, i fyou really think the other dress if what you want, bid on it or buy and try to sell the dress your paying on if you cant get out of the no return.

I doubt you would be able to get out of it per say.. but def bid on your dress then try to either sell the one you bought first or just don’t pay the rest and they will be able to sell it to another person? You were willing to pay XXX amout for the dress you bought, you end up paying the same amount to the dress you love!

I tried to get out of mine.. what they didn’t tell us is that would have given us 24 hours. I ended up buying another dress but am in love with my first one.. all in all I don’t think you can get out of it, especially if you signed something.

As far as wedding dresses go, the only time I’ve EVER heard of a bride being able to get out of paying for her dress is when the groom to be died in Afghanistan. Otherwise, sorry to burst your bubble, but its just not going to happen. Think about how many dress regret posts you see on here – if every bride was able to return the dress they ordered, all these places would go out of business.
You could sell or consign the dress to cover the cost of the one you want – but just keep in mind, just because its 60 dollars now doesn’t mean it will stay that cheap – most bidders wait until the last second to bid. I sold a Coach bag that was hovering at 5 dollars until an hour before the auction end, and it ended up selling for 150.

Since the policy is no refund or exchange, would they give you a store credit to use for other things? Shoes? Veil? Accessories? A dress for another occasion maybe or a family member in need of a formal gown who could pay you back?
I’d even approach them about paying the balance and having them try and resell it for you in their shop…unless it was custom order made to your measurements, which would be harder to sell.

Okay thanks for your comments. I will try and bid on the dress to see if I get it. If I do, then I would speak to the shop I purchased my other dress from about a store credit or having them try to resell the dress. If they don’t do that then I will try and sell the dress myself. It was an off the rack dress so no they didn’t order the dress or do any mesurements.
