One of the easiest and quickest ways to sell your wedding dress is to a bride-to-be who lives nearby. It also makes sense if you’re looking to help reduce wasted transport miles and cut down on the cost of postage. A potential buyer can search for a dress that’s in a town or city near them. Find who else is selling a dress near you in the UK

What style sells best?

We have hundreds of different styles, fabrics and colours from almost every wedding designer for sale. If you found your dress fabulous when you chose it, there’s a great chance someone else will feel the same so there are no specific styles that stand out as being easier to sell.

Some premium wedding designers will get far more attention as their creations are unique and unusual, but across the range of brands represented, there’s great demand for well-known high-street as well as one-off couture.

Style, fabric and colour is much more dependent on the season and the fashion trend. Autumn weddings are quite different in style to summer and your dress will reflect that as well as your personality.
