I’ve been wondering this, too, about the dress I bought many years ago for a wedding that I eventually canceled after breaking my first engagment.  Does anyone know how the WB Classifieds work? Is there a cost to posting something there?

@Brielle:  No cost. I would try pre owned wedding dresses, once wed, and craigslist as well. Be as specific as possible

Like Roe said, be as specific as possible when you list the dress, and have several pictures of you in it as well (take the pictures in clean and nice surroundings, good lighting, and have your hair/makeup done- it helps a potential bride visualize better).

Any time you sell a dress, even if it’s brand-new, be prepared to discount it significantly unless you are very patient or it is a popular dress. Most brides shopping on the classifieds or preowned sites are looking for a fantastic deal or looking for a specific dress. Recycledbride is free for a basic listing but you can upgrade to a featured listing for $10/month. Preownedweddingdresses charges $25 and will list it until it sells and discounting the dress by 10% or more will bump it back to the first page. Oncewed.com is free, and there is also bravobride but I haven’t looked into that one yet. If you list it on Craigslist, be mindful of scammers- only deal with confirmed paypal (check with your bank that funds have been deposited) or cash locally. Ebay is always another option, be specific in the title about the designer, size, style, etc.
