    I posted my dress on Tradesy.com today.

     

    It's New, Oleg Cassini CWG482 size 10.   Mermaid Flare, Lace and Tulle.  Freakin' gorgeous, but according to the Wedding Gods and Goddess' it's not for me.  

     

    Went shopping for a Halloween costume... ended up buying an 80's wedding dress, that I am totally obsessed with.

     

    I bought it for $970, selling for $650 OBO.  Has NOT been altered in anyway! I'm open to lower prices.  

     

    Please check it out :)

    If anyone has any suggestions on other places I can post my dress aside from preownedweddingdresses.com let me know :) I'd like to sell this baby before my wedding day! My 10, 2015

    Oncewed.com and ebay. Where are you located? There is a bridal consignment shop near me. Maybe you can find one in your area. I plan on stalking them regularLY to find my shoes

    So far 79 adult guests + bride and groom + 13 kids = 164 room nights. Focused on planning without stressing.

      Is there anyway you could wear both? One to ceremony and one to reception? That way you don't feel like you lost A LOT of money and when you do sell it you can accept less than you may have wanted because you know you've worn if?

        I'm really not "that" girl who does things that.  My new dress is seriously, all I need. 

         

        And if I were to wear my Oleg, it would cost me $450 to alter it to my body.  It's a waste.

         

        The consignment store gets 50% of what I sell it for, so I'm just crossing my fingers that it will actually sell, so I can use the money towards the photographer or something else. :(

         

        This is a picture of my vintage, Jessica McClintock, that I purchased at the thrift store for $25... aka, my dress that I will be wearing for my wedding :wub:   This isn't a picture of me.  I actually feel that my body does the dress a bit more justice than the model.  It fits tighter, and I'm a bit more curvier.  I will be altering the sleeves, but leaving everything else alone.  This picture also makes the silk at the bottom and on sleeves a bit of a cream color, but it's white.

        I'm so in LOVE with it!!!!

        @lydiasusi I would probably wear both. I spent $1200 for my dress for my 6/16 wedding. I have loved this dress for a year. I also love the Galia Lahav style dresses, but I know they are wayyyy out of my price range. But, I have the dress I wanted and if something else comes up at least I have a choice and can always sell the other. You may have better luck selling when it comes close to wedding season. Also, try craigslist.

        I totally understand considering the cost of alterations. Was just trying to find a solution. Good luck selling it.

        Have you tried posting it to preownedweddingdresses.com ? I check that site all the time to see if any of the dresses I like show up on the site. I'm sure there are lots of brides that do the same thing. Might be worth a try.

          I had considered it.... but, there are several of the same dresses, for cheaper, due to them being for sale for months.  

           

          I am going to go with consignment :)

           

          craigslist is so sketchy too.   I've already got a scam email :/   Thanks!
