So im going to be a 3 dress bride 😀
I need some help on buying a used dress. The listing says the dress needs to be cleaned. I think fine thats ok, I asked the seller if there was stains or holes. she said no holes the listing said it needs to be cleaned. The listing has the stock photo of the dress not the actual dress.
What are some tips or questions you wished you asked before buying your used wedding dress?!

I would ask for :
– Photos of the actual dress
– Close up pics and description of any stains and/or dirt at the hemline
– Description of all alterations made
– Make sure correct color and size info is provided

I already checked size & color. I emailed like 5 people selling the same dress today and then realized 1 of them was white and couldnt remember which one it was!

I ouldn’t buy without seeing all angles close up of the actual dress either. Even ask for under the arms and inside the dress shots. Perspiration stains aren’t easily removed, and if the dress is anything like my daughter’s the INSIDE got stained from her spray tan!

Update- I asked for pictures and have gotten NO RESPONCE. Im guessing her “needs to be cleaned ” means a big stain on the front. She had always emailed right away (emails said from blackberry)

Dear, you need to check the photo of real dress first. If seller do not provide, stop it and find another one.

I bought mine used, but I only was interested in dresses in my area- I’d drive 2 hours to see a dress. But I did not buy one and that had to shipped without checking it out first.
BTW- I got a GREAT used dress that fit llike a glove. So don’t give up!
