Selling Your Wedding Dress: Price It Right

It is a fact. Today, more brides are selling their wedding dresses than ever before.  They (smartly) want to recoup a big chunk of what they spent. And they also want to share their dress with another bride – saving it from a lifetime in the closet.

Just check out what these recent sellers said:

I love the idea of letting someone else be as happy in it! I think of it as some sort of “sisterhood of the traveling gown!” (Chiara M)

In addition to getting some money from the sales (which is great), I am so very happy to have my wedding items be enjoyed by other brides. It makes me smile to know that instead of languishing in storage, they will be sharing someone else’s special day!! (Allison M)

I asked that the buyer send me a picture of her in my dress so I could include it in my scrapbook! (Christian W)
