    different ways to make money from wedding dress? 12th Feb 18 at 11:11 AM
    I've been trying to sell on my wedding dress for almost three years now (after getting married August 2013), with no joy. I've tried Ebay, gumtree, preloved, bride2bride, bridal reloved, and selling pages on Facebook (both local and national ones). I'm not asking for a huge amount of money for it, as it's not in perfect condition, although it's certainly still in a 'good' condition. I'm now trying to think of alternative places to sell it, as it's starting to annoy me seeing it sit in the wardrobe taking up space!

    I did have an idea that someone crafty might buy it to chop up and make something with (decorations, bunting etc), but I have no idea how I'd go about finding a person like that to sell it to!

    Can anyone think of any other way of getting rid of the dress, but still making a bit of money from it?

    I sent mine to a charity called cherished gowns because there is very little resale value for them..

    i came across a charity that re purposes them into dresses for stillborn babies to be burried in. Angel gowns i think? unlikely to get money,but at least you know it will mean a lot to someone.
