Can you sell it on ebay, craigslist, or post it here on the weddingbee classifieds?  You should really have the dress you love 🙂

I think you should sell it and buy the dress you really love!

I agree, get one you love!  My dress literally fell on me..it is THE dress I’m meant to have!  I loved my dress from afar for months and not know it.  I saw another bride with it and loved it to death…but didn’t think i could have it; I simply didn’t know the designer of the dress.  Defeated, I bought a dress for dirt cheap ($400) from ebay from a bride who bought two dresses and didn’t want her second one, it wasn’t her dream dress (at this point I had given up and just getting one to have).  When I got the dress in the mail..and when I looked back on the bride with the dress i fell in love with..They turned out to be one and the same!  I was so thrilled..the original was well over $2K and the dress fits me so i need very little alterations. I can’t imagine wearing any other dress now! I would suggest putting it up for sales and get that dress you LOVE!  Best of luck in getting that dream dress for you!


And my sister and friends totally thought I was insane to buy the dress without ever trying it on! =)  It works out sometimes!

If you really feel like the best version of you in the Bill Levkoff dress, go for it!  I am sure you can sell the other one, and even if you have to sell it for less than what you bought it for, your grand total for dress purchases will likely still be less than what the first one cost in the first place.  Plus, you’ll be in a dress you really love and feel comfortable in.  Just make sure to buy the Bill Levkoff dress before you sell the other one — you don’t want to be stuck without any dress if, god forbid, your Bill Levkoff dress is gone before you can get your hands on it!

If you decide you’d rather return the first dress to get store credit, can you use that credit towards a veil, shoes, accessories, or anything for your bridesmaids?  (You could pay for the dresses with your credit and ask them to pay you back, if you weren’t planning on treating them to their dresses).  Or, is anyone else you know getting married that could use the credit for their own dress and pay you back?
