To get the most bang for your buck, there are several things that you will need to do in order to sell your wedding dress.
Step One: Make sure that your dress is cleaned. This also means that the dress is free of rips or tears. If your wedding dress is in need of sewing, then this is the time to get it done. This is especially true if you are trying to sell it at a modest price. Also, it is preferred that you take your dress to the cleaners to get the dress properly cleaned so you will not have to do it yourself. The cleaner the dress, the more you can profit from the sell.
Step Two: Be sure that you store your dress in a secure place, a wedding box perhaps, so that it can be transferred from one location to another safely. Please note that storing it in a wedding box could create difficult-to-remove creases, so use your best judgment. Also, there are many different wedding dress bags that you can buy for storing occasions. Using a wedding dress bag will make it a lot easier to store and keep clean than just trying to hang it with a plastic bag. However, if the plastic bag is big enough to store the dress, then that will suffice. Again, use common sense when deciding on how to store your dress, so that the dress will keep its value.
Step Three: You would want to make sure that your wedding dress is selling capable. In other words, make sure that you can sell your dress at a fair price. One the best ways to insure proper pricing is to actually check and see how much the dress would sell if it were new and then drop the price a few bucks. By doing so will help you sell your dress while at an appropriate amount.
Step Four: The last step is to make sure that you know where to sell your wedding dress. There are many different places where you can sell your wedding dress. However, with some places, for instance, the Internet, you might have to pay a few bucks to list your wedding dress. With that in mind, selling the dress online is a great way to get your dress sold fast because of the amount of people that are specifically looking for wedding dresses. If you think that you can get people to bid on it then post the dress as an auction and see how much you can make. If you choose a more traditional approach and do not want to list it online, then you can place a few ads in newspapers or find a store that buys used wedding dresses. Some bridal stores are good at pricing wedding dresses. However, bridal stores usually charge a commission or some kind of fee after the sell.
