(Closed) I LOVE my dress, but I’m selling it afterwards. Anyone in the same boat?

My dress is too amazing to sit in a box after just one day of use. I’ll definitely find a way to give it a longer life.

I have never been one to pack away things. I don’t find my memories that way…but I realize that some people do. Mr.Mink is sentimental…he had every birthday card he as ever received.

I love my gown very much, but I’d love to give another fellow plus size bee an opportunity to wear a ‘couture’ gown! =)

I purchased my dress in November and have already decided to sell my dress once the wedding is over. I already have a wedding dress in my closet that has been sitting there for years (my sweet 15’s dress was a wedding dress). I regret that no one else got to enjoy that dress as much as I did because it was simply beautiful so I don’t plan to make that same mistake again. I’m pretty sure it would be hard to part with my wedding dress but I am planning to keep my veil and plan to pass it on in my family.

Sure I’d sell my dress afterward.

By The Way, if the wedding photons in your area do inspiration shoots, they may be interested in renting dresses. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had an offer a few months ago…I’m considering it.

I love my dress, but yes, I’ll be selling it after. I can be sentimental about some things, but I don’t see the point of having a big poofy dress sit in my wardrobe taking up space… I’d rather make some money from it!

I don’t know yet- I’m definitely keeping my veil and perhaps maybe my daughter will wear it someday.  But I just don’t know what to do with my wedding dress- I may sell it but I was wondering about shortening it- It will still be poofy and I still have no idea what I would wear it to but *shrug*

Pass on the love!

All of mine were photoed and e-bayed…its a sweet cycle ๐Ÿ™‚ Unless you want to save it for a possible child or family member!

Oh I’ll add that I think I’ll have a hard time selling because I’m short.

I think I’m selling mine. I absolutely love it and while I’m usually sentimental about stuff like this, I doubt a future daughter would want to wear it. Getting some of my money back would be nice too.

  @accorn: As a five footer, I have the same fear. :/

I’m buying a dress that is pre-owned (ahh such a nice euphemism for used!) and I plan on passing the love on down ๐Ÿ™‚  I’ll definitely resell ๐Ÿ™‚

I would sell my dress if I thought I would get a decent amount of cash for it. However, it is designer and only cost under £700 brand new, so I don’t really see the point in selling it for like £300? I have a feeling that I will get sick of storing it and might end up donating it… we’ll see!

However, I would NEVER part with my tiara – I love that baby!!

We sold mine.  We tried to sell NotFroofy’s, but a) she’s short, and b) we don’t know the style number of the dress.  I already have a grown daughter, and she is not my size or shape, and has quite different taste.
