Sell Your Wedding Dress | Buy a Keepsake

Evonne turned this:

Into these.

We hear so many stories from PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com sellers about why the decided to sell their wedding dress.  I just loved what Evonne (who sold her wedding dress in June) had to say about selling her gown.

“I absolutely loved my dress and I wanted someone else to enjoy it as much as I did.  I thought about passing it on to my daughter but I had so much fun choosing my dream dress, I would never want to pressure her to wear mine and miss out on the experience. I also live in NYC so I knew I didn’t have room to store the dress.

With the dress proceeds, I bought a pair of diamond earrings.  These I can wear over and over again to remember my wedding.  They are a true momento to pass to my daughter.”

Earrings (or something else you can enjoy on a daily basis) are such a better way to “preserve” your wedding dress than keeping it in the closet for years.

And Evonne giving those earrings to a daughter one day – perhaps on that daughter’s wedding day – is a modern and lovely template for a mother/ daughter wedding dress tradition.


  1. This is such a great idea. Instead of keeping your wedding dress, why not sell it and get something more precious. After my wedding day, I will also do the same. I will sell my wedding dress and have something that I can have with me every day. Diamond earrings, necklace or bracelet is a good idea. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I didn’t think about this great idea. Your post enlightened me.

  2. buy wedding dress online? hmm!
    I think if you do your research and take accurate measurements, it’s ok. I hated going from store to store trying to find my DREAM wedding gown so I started pouring through websites to see if I could find what I was looking for. I actually found one on EBAY! I was a little nervous at first, but they had lots of positive feed back. It was from Hong Kong, I crossed my fingers and ordered. It shipped in a week! It was beautiful and everything I wanted and the Kicker is… I only paid $250 and no one had a clue! hehehe.. so we got to spend the extra money on our honeymoon! Good LUCK!
