- Wedding: July 2011
I posted my dress here in WB classifieds, oncewed.com and recycledbride.com. I have to tell you – I think it was the BEST thing I could have done!! It isn’t so much that I was able to recover some of my costs of it. The bride who bought it was EXTREMELY excited about it. She lives in a town where the closest bridal shop is a David’s Bridal more than 20 miles away. She loves the dress! Her parents love it too and it matches her venue perfectly. She just sent me pictures of her trying on the dress and veil for the first time – she looks RADIANT!
It was a very bittersweet feeling when I shipped her the dress. (I have to keep correcting myself and not say “my dress.) I was sad to let her go but didn’t feel right sticking her in storage. I figured I would just post on free sites and see what happened. When this bride contacted me about the dress, I could just TELL she was so excited about it and happy to be getting married. (Perhaps it had to do with the fact that she’d respond to my emails within 5 minutes? hahaha…)
I’m happy and convinced that I did the right thing. Has anyone else felt like this?
