I’m planning on re-selling mine, also!

I haven’t done it yet, but when you do, include every detail you possibly can, and make sure you put key words in the listing title (e.g “badgley mischka lexington style# size height”). Make sure to note any alterations you’ve had done, and how tall you will be with shoes on, as well as color, size, etc.

Good luck, and I hope you get advice from someone who’s done it before!

Pictures, pictures, pictures.

If you don’t have an excellent camera, find someone who has one to take the pictures for you.  They must be clear, large, and numerous.  One or two shots isn’t going to do it.

i have one up now but it is not a big designer brand so i think that makes a difference.  i think it also helps if you live in an area that others can get to try on the dress as I know badgely is not carried everywhere.  I was told that you can expect to get 50% if it has been worn.  I got an offer of 50% on mine nwt but again it is not a big designer name.  good luck

I’m planning on selling my dress after the wedding, but I’m wondering does someone typically just buy it from you, you ship it, and if it doesn’t fit them that’s that? Or do people typically want to meet up with you and try it on (which I imagine is more likely)? I don’t know safety-wise that I’d want to go into a random person’s house, or let a stranger into mine. You could meet in a public place, but I don’t think it’s very easy to try on a wedding dress in a Starbucks, lol. What do people usually do in this situation?

Probably could be. As far as I’m concerned, I’d buy my wedding dress at affordable price, so then I will just keep it as my love memory ;-D
