It's a dress you've spent a large amount of money on, but you'll only wear once. Unless you'd like to save your wedding dress for sentimental reasons, it's silly to let it sit in your closet collecting dust.
Why should I sell my wedding dress?
Just as picking out your wedding gown is a personal choice, selling it afterward is up to the individual bride. Many modern brides, however, find that they want to recoup some money and put it toward a honeymoon, new home, baby preparations or debt acquired from the wedding day itself.
In other cases, a divorce, a broken engagement or even a simple change of heart about the gown might cause a woman to sell her original dress.
At what price should I list my gown?
As a general rule of thumb, a used gown that's in great condition and less than 2 1/2 years old can sell for 50 percent of the retail price. Gowns from recognizable names like Vera Wang can sell for 60-70 percent of the retail value. But don't be discouraged if your dress isn't designer as brides across the spectrum are looking to buy used gowns. Dresses that retailed for $1,000 have as good a chance of re-selling as those originally priced at $5,000.
