I’m thinking of going the preowned route and don’t really want to buy a dress that’s not more than 50% off what the original bride paid.  I agree with meliss that as the 2nd user, I am wearing a used dress and still have to pay to have to hemmed and  altered for a less than perfect dress.  Much rather just pay a bit more to have the original dress.

Congratulations to both of you! It sounds like you were able to sell it really fast. Just curious as to which site you used? I’m planning to sell my dress after my May wedding.

Thank you for the very informative post! Coincidences, I’m also a SoCal girl and I also bought a La Sposa early on in my search but changed my mind πŸ™‚ Luckily I was able to cancel the order for a fee.

You’re right about the search function on OnceWed. It’s a great site but but the sort feature (e.g. by price) never seems to work properly. I even emailed the site owner about it but probably noone reads them. I still look at used sites as a prospective buyer in case I find something better (I know, bad, but still don’t love my wedding dress as much as I should…)

Thanks Aroosa, you’re very sweet. Maybe I will love it when I see it again. I just can’t get that vision of the big princess skirt out of my head! I just posted the dream dress that haunts me in another post πŸ™‚ All lace, slightly dropped waist, full skirt…I still dream about that non-existent dress. Also once saw a photo of a girl, probably my height, in a trumpet dress similar to mine, and it was very unfortunate that the dress somehow made her look like a midget. Hope I’m not being un-pc and no offense to little people, but I really thought she was one until I saw the guests and family were the same height. I have dreams about that dress too but the nightmarish kind where that is now me πŸ™‚ Probably, and hopefully, they’re all just silly bridal anxieties that’ll go away once I have the dress.
