As I started to accomplish the daunting task of making room for the new baby, I realized there were tons of things just taking up space in our home, including my wedding dress.  I always planned on selling it.  It was an expensive Monique Lhuillier Dress  that I knew I was never going to wear again. Plus, I could spend the money on something we truly needed while giving another bride the chance to wear something beautiful. But, after time went on, it was easier and easier just to keep it in our guest rooms closet.

Thankfully, last month, I was introduced to PreOwnedweddingdresses.com. After doing some research I quickly realized that it was a simple and effective way to find out how much my dress was worth, list my dress and sell it!  Best part? It’s only $25! There were no commissions or additional charges to list my dress. Plus, I instantly gravitated towards their Wear, Love, Share campaign.  The thought of all the love that went into wearing my dress and now I can share it with someone else. I just listed it this past weekend, so I am excited to see how quickly I can get my dress in the hands of some lucky girl getting married this year!

To be honest, it is hard to sell something that has so many wedding day memories attached to it. I spent the whole day in that dress surrounded by family and friends. But, it feels great to know that not only am I getting great money for my dress but another bride now has access to a designer dress she might not have been able to afford. Plus, its so great to think of the amazing memories the next person will create while wearing it on their special day.

Even though, I still have my original receipt,  I didn’t know what my dress was worth. Thankfully the website’s Wedding Dress value Calculator was a simple tool to help me get started. I found out that it was reasonable to sell my dress anywhere around $1800. So, after creating an account and a listing for my dress, describing it in full details and uploading some photos I ended up pricing it at $1750.

At the end of the day its all win-win now that I participated in #WearLoveSahre.  I now have a clutter free closet in the new baby’s room, extra cash to buy some baby furniture and I can share the love with another bride who will spend the day in a dress we both fell in love with and create some great memories.
