Selling a dress

A used wedding dress in great condition, and under two years old, can usually sell for 50% of the original retail price. If your dress is a designer brand such as Vera Wang, you could get closer to 60% of the original retail value.

We charge a maximum of 40% of selling price.

We use the photos of the dress and the proof of purchase to verify the dress and details provided.

This helps us to confirm the age, designer and market value of the dress before we’re able to commit to selling the dress.

A dress submission will not be considered if no proof of purchase is included.

Unfortunately not. We only take in dresses that are not older than two years. This is to keep our stock current.
