If you really don’t like it, try selling it on Craigslist.   It might take you a few months, but you have plenty of time. Then you don’t have to deal with shipping and you can get cash in hand.  I would just keep an eye on DB and keep stopping by there every few weeks.  They put stuff on the sale rack all the time and you might find your dream dress when you least expect it, and for the right price.  The website also has some great stuff in their outlet section if you already know your size with them, and that changes all the time also.

If you decide to keep it I definitely think you could add some accessories and make it look really nice. A friend of mine wore this exact same dress a little over a year ago and I think it looked gorgeous as is. But with a sash, a fun brooch, and some killer jewelry I think it could look even more awesome.

Without seeing the dress on you its hard to suggest ways to dress it up.. If you arent happy with the dress just sell it on preowned wedding dresses and get a new one, davids bridal has gowns on sale for $99 you might find something you like better

I also suggest selling it. It’s a nice dress but you seem to be very unhappy. I know how it feels to have the wrong dress and i think even if you add some accessories you probably will never love it and wish you could wear something else. What kind of dress would you like to wear?

Try oncewed.com and recycledbride.com, both are free and easy to use. If you don’t know how to create a listing, just ask and i’ll try to help. I’m experienced in buying and selling stuff from the internet, it’s easy and shipping a dress is not much different from shipping something else.

@SouthernGirl: Well I guess sell it then? If you hate it, that’s your only option at this point. I don’t think some alterations would destroy your budget, but if you don’t love it you just don’t love it. Try to sell it to someone who will.

I’m so sorry to hear about this. In my opinion, your friend should have told you that she had it altered and she shouldn’t have made you buy the dress if it didn’t fit you!! I’m sure you were trying to help her, that she’s having a hard time right now, but it seems like she made you buy the dress. That’s not fair.

Anyway, what’s done it’s done (unless she takes the dress back). I would suggest you try to sell it either in the clssified section here, craiglist or preownedweddingdress.com. I recommend you take good pictures of it, lots of them so you get more potential clients.

It’s a beautiful dress. If you decide not to sell it, you can add a sash or fabric flowers. That could totally transform your dress! Good luck 🙂

How about getting it beaded?   It really isn’t that difficult.  Do you have a family member who can bead and embroider?

A little steaming and accessorizing and it could look fabulous.   

How about the border at the top, some embroidery and beading or the entire bodice on top of the pulled rouched waist. 

Something like this?
