The website address pretty much speaks for itself. You’ve got a wedding dress that’s sitting in your wardrobe and space is tight. You wore it on one of the most tear jerking yet happiest day of your life and you looked absolutely breathtaking. So, why not share that joy, make room in your home and make some money by selling your dress to a bride who may well be living half way across the world from you?
Founded by Josie Daga who had trouble selling her own wedding dress back in 2004, PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com is a listing platform for bridal wear. There’s a one-time listing fee of US$25 for dresses and if you’ve got accessories such as sashes, veils, jewellery or shoes, sell them for an additional fee of US$5. And as a buyer, you’ve got tens of thousands of dresses to browse through. A whopping 13,222 dresses to be exact (this figure is as at the time of writing). You can search for your favourites by designer - Pronovias, Reem Acra, Vera Wang to name a few - and what’s best is the opportunity to purchase a designer dress that may not be available in Hong Kong (been eyeing on a BHLDN dress?). If you’re still sceptical about doing online purchases/sales, what about the fact that the Baracci dress Beyonce wore in her music video ‘Best Hing I Never Had’ is currently being listed on the site? I’m not saying you should buy the dress but hey, if a celeb (or rather their team) will list there, you can too. Happy trading!
