    Anyone know where I can sell my wedding dress? 11th Jan 08 at 10:12 AM
    Hello there.

    I'm normally only on the debt free wannabe section, but I thought I'd pop in here to ask this as you're all far more likely to know.

    I'm trying to sell my wedding dress and shoes (maggie sottero - julie size 10-12) and I don't know where to start really. I don't want to put it on ebay because they've blocked the site at work and it's my only internet access.

    Do you know of any shops online or otherwise that buy used wedding dresses?

    Thanks

    I've found a really good site where you can sell your wedding dress for free! its www.yourweddingshop.co.uk. Unlike many of the other sites that charge 10 upwards to list your item, not to mention the huge fees ebay charge!

    How about Preloved.co.uk? I think that's quite a popular one.

    If you have any luck selling your dress, please post back. I've tried several, confetti, hitched, preloved (got the most responses from here), and I forget the other. Refused to risk selling it on eBay as I'd rather keep it that sell for 50. Looks like I'm keeping it.

    To be honest from looking at the sale ads on hitched and confetti, the dresses are still really expensive. Many over 500 which is still too pricey for a lot of brides. This could be what is putting people off buying them.

    I know that the dresses probably cost in excess of a grand, but they are still second hand and with travel costs to go and see just one dress its a lot of money. Plus the pictures are often quite small with minimal details.

    I am not sure if this site will buy your dress, however, they do sell second-hand wedding dresses. I actually found their ad in the January 09 edition of Easy Living magazine:

    I have been looking for somewhere to sell my wife's wedding dresses (yes - dresses plural! - She couldn't decide so we have 3 to sell! - ...for richer and for poorer :O) ) I found this site for UK sellers and they allow you to sell your wedding dress for free - it looks like its a new site - but it's on the front page of google UK so I imagine it will get some traffic?

    The site is: www.SellWeddingDress.co.uk

    Other UK sites seem to charge 15 a piece on average (so that's 45 quid for us!) So when I can get a decent picture of the dresses I will give this site a go (as well as any other free ones anyone can recommend!) My thinking is list it as many places as possible (for free!) and therefore increase the changes of getting a sale!

    UPDATE: Sold one of the dresses for free (it took about 4 weeks to sell) just in time for Christmas :O)

    Good Luck!

    SwapMyDress.co.uk has sections for selling wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses and all adverts are Free.

    They have a sister site SwapMyDesigner.co.uk where you can sell specific designer wedding dresses also for Free to list.

    There's a page on rockmywedding (.co.uk I think), ebay could be worth it, or gumtree?

    How rude, I'm not a bot.

    I searched for selling wedding dresses and this page comes up near the top so i simply replied to it as did the next person.

    But why were you searching for selling wedding dresses? Given that your other post on another thread also mentions the same site, it would suggest that you are on here purely to advertise your website. Apologies if that happens not to be the case, but most people on here are very suspicious of someone whose few threads are solely about a single company or website.

    If you would like to describe further your personal experience with the website you mention, and talk about your experience of planning your own or a close friend or relative's wedding then you are more than welcome here. But, the pattern of your posting suggests otherwise, and regular posters on here know the signs all too well!

    OK, I am married and I originally googled about selling my Ronald Joyce Chanel wedding dress which came up with the designer website i originally listed. I contacted them about specifically selling my wedding dress and they pointed me to their other site swapmydress which has a wedding dress section so yes i have two posts which are related by my looking to sell a designer chanel wedding dress.

    I listed for 30 days, had some interest but it didnt sell but as it was free I didnt mind and I can list again.

    Hello,
    There is a lovely second hand dress boutique in Edinburgh - http://www.blissstudio.co.uk/
    Not sure if you'd have to go up there or whether you could post it. Maybe worth looking into?
