To the brides who have successfully sold or are in the process of selling a wedding dress, do you have any advice? I purchased a dress in January, and when I tried it on last week, I realized the style was not me, but it is a beautiful, classic dress.
I live in NYC and have reached out to a consignment shop (Ivory Lace NY) and am waiting for a response. I know there are a ton of websites available (including this one) to advertise on, but do any have better success rates? Recommended discount for a new, unaltered, latest collection dress? What to be wary of? Recommended consignment shops in the NY/NJ area? What is a fair discount offered by a consignment shop for a new dress? How long does it usually take to sell a dress via consignment or online?
I have pictures of myself in the dress, which is a Demetrios Platinum DP 255, size 8, never altered and never worn, with the belt still unattached. Retail was $3,200. But I cannot for the life of me find the designer’s professional picture of the dress online. If anyone has this or can find it, I would greatly appreciate of you could share.
