^ These are the places I plan to try to sell my dress on.

I’ve heard it’s very hard to sell dresses, usually you’ll get 50% or less and it takes a long time.

Good luck!

If you have it listed on Ebay (or anywhere else) I’d really suggest posting ACTUAL pictures of the dress instead of stock photos, the stock photos make me think it could be a scam and we’re obviously talking about a lot of money!

Offering a return policy could be a good idea.  Or maybe even a link to a site where you could find out where to try the dress on locally… people will be much more comfortable if they have tried on the gown. ๐Ÿ™‚

@aimeelisa2:  Preownedweddingdresses.com I posted my first dress on this site and sold it within a week.  Honestly I wasn’t expecting it to sell that quickly but it was really easy and simple.

I made sure to post a stock photo because brides often like the stock photo but have no idea what the dress looks like in person.  I also posted photos of my dress on the hanger.  I gave specific details about the dress such as color, style, shape, etc.  I also posted that it was brand new, never altered and never worn.

Good luck!

I agree that the stock photo as well as photos of the actual dress are good to have, as well as measurements of the actual dress.

It does help that it hasn’t been altered.  Your current price should be OK since it hasn’t been worn or had alterations done.

I also suggest preownedweddingdresses.com.  I ended up buying my dress from a salon, but I saw the same style on that site in my size for a couple hundred less (brand new, never worn) than I paid for it.  I would have gotten it had I been engaged and if it was white.

Hi! I’m trying to sell mine too… I posted here on weddingbee and just on oncewed.com.  It’s monique lhuillier peony in blush… I paid about $5600 and selling for $3200.  Do you think that is enough of a discount?
