Trash the Dress Gowns

Recommended Posts

I have several wedding dresses in various sizes that would be suitable for Trash the Dress photos.  They are all samples from a bridal boutique and have not been worn.  Some of them have "floor dirt" on the hems from the dressing room and such, which is why I'm selling them for such a low price.  I have a variety of sizes and styles from 2-14.

 

Please have a look at the photos and let me know what size you might need.  I am happy to send you more pictures/measurements.

They are all variations of polyester, i.e. satin made from polyester. They come with underskirts/crinolines and chapel length trains. One has a cathedral length train. They can be crumpled up in a suitcase and easily steamed back to perfection. If they are not heavily beaded, they can be put in the washing machine on gentle.

Hello!  I've had several messages re: dress fabrics.  If you have a wedding dress under $1500 it is probably a polyester/ man-made blend of some kind, especially if it is a designer brand. The label may say "acetate" which is also a man-made fabric.  The bridal stores and designers such as Maggie Sottero give the fabric textures and blends different names, i.e. orgnanza, georgette, chiffon, satin, tulle, taffeta, "silky-satin" and so on.  Polyester is easy to sew, holds form and shape well, and will also retain its colour well.  They can also sell these dresses at lower prices to a larger market. 

 

Silk dresses tend to be very expensive due to the price of the fabric, but also because it is more difficult to sew.  Silk is very slippery and wrinkles/pulls easily.  It has to be draped "just so" on a long dress so it does not lose its shape.  It's a luxurious material, but it requires a lot more care and attention.  Silk is often lined with a man-made fabric to help keep its shape which can result in a hot dress in warm weather.

 

Have a look at the label inside your gown to see what fabric it is.  If it is man made it will pop up into its original shape when steamed/pressed even if it's been scrunched inside a suitcase.  You can also "spot clean" polyester easily with plain soap and water if you spill wine on it without a problem.  Silk or natural fabric is a different story and needs to be handled with great care.

 

Hope this info helps!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
