Hard to see the dress from that photo. Do you have one that features the dress more prominently?

How much did you originally pay for it?  Start from there.  Since it was a sample gown, it should be a price discounted from what YOU paid for (not for how much it was originally retailed for), specially since it’s now used.

To find the style, if you know the designer, then just go to their site and look for it.  From your picture I can’t even tell how the dress looks like!

Even your “wrinkly” photo is gorgeous… I want that dress! Haha.

As CCSR said, start with what you paid, then bump the price down a bit. If someone is interested but isn’t willing to pay quite that much, I’m sure you can haggle a little over price. Or just say “best offer.”

I would check on preownedweddingdresses.com and see what the price range is for other similar dresses. If you paid nearly full price, I would say go with about 60% of what you paid, but if you got it failry cheap, maybe 80% of what you paid?

I think pricing a dress at 50% what you paid is the best place to start when selling a used dress. Since it has now been worn once, it is as if you are sharing the price. You had the benefit of wearing the dress as new but also may have paid an alterations fee so those can weigh in too but most people buy used dresses as a cheaper alternative to new. Also, if you had it cleaned, you hsould factor that into the sale price because it is a cost the next person does not have to worry about.
