BDW brides selling their dresses

Recommended Posts

I REALLY hope this isn't against the rules or anything! (if it is I'm sorry mods! just let me know!)

 

I have a few friends getting married, and some are planning to buy second hand dresses, and some are planning to sell their dresses after they get married. I know one of my friends is having a terrible time trying to find a dress on Ebay/craigslist etc., and I was wondering if it would be appropriate to use this thread for BDW brides who want to sell their wedding dress? You could post pics etc?

 

(and to keep it from being overrun by sellers, non brides, maybe we could make it so no noobs can sell? only people who have posted and participated in the site)?

 

I have nothing to buy or sell, but i am looking for a dress, and my friend really inspired me, so i hope this is ok! and if not, I'm sorry!

Hi! I think this thread is a good idea...a central place for brides to post their dresses for sale!

 

I would like to sell my dress if there is a bride interested in it, then hopefully we can negotiate a price.

 

This is my dress:

 

Maggie Sottero Carla in Pearl color with Ivory accents.

Here's the train:

And here it is bustled:

It has a simple 3 point bustle. It was taken in at the bust since I had lost weight in my chest and it was a little too big and needed to be altered. The length has not been altered, I am 5"5 without shoes and I wore 3 inch heels which put me at 5'8 all dressed up. It was the perfect length with those shoes on. It is a size 8 but has a corset closure to accommodate for someone a bit bigger or smaller than that.

 

I think I'll also make my own thread for this. :)

I am also selling my wedding dress -

It is an Alfred Angelo size 6, but I had it tailored down to fit me - I wear about a size 4 street clothes and am 5'3" (but was tailored with heels).

It is white with an organza material, some crinolin in the skirt (not much) - it is pretty lightweight feeling. The dress originally had a very short train, but I had it taken off.

There is beading along the top, some at the waist, and along the zipper on the back.

 

I wore it for less than 1 hour in a church, it was my 2nd dress - so I wore the other dress for the rest. It is essentially in perfect condition and I can have it dry-cleaned before sending it out.

If anyone is interested, make an offer :).

I can also send more pictures if you want.

I think its a good idea to have thread just for dresses for sale. I think there are alot of girls trying to sell their dresses from way back.

 

I became a 2 dress bride so my first dress is still for sale. I'm asking $150 but open to offers.

I am also selling my first dress, is a Madeline Gardner size 8 unaltered, still at the Bridal Store at McAllen, TX. I am willing to pick up and ship it personally if somebody is interested. I paid 1300 USD for the dress and I can hear offers.

 

Here are the pics from the model:

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
