Wondering if you know of any consignment/discount stores that specialize in wedding dresses. My daughter will be planning her wedding soon and I’d like to be prepared!

Here are a few places I managed to track down. Bridal isn’t my thing so it’s safe to say I haven’t been to many of these places.

  1. Hey Tania

    I would try to sell it myself first. Craigslist is a good option. If that didn’t pan out, I would try one of the above consignment shops.

    It’s also a good idea to let people know that you have one for sale, word of mouth can do wonders

    If you have a website or blog, post about it. You never know.

  2. I think wedding dresses is very useful for bride because During marriage bride should look different from other. So it need a good wedding dresses.

  5. HI there,

    I have a wedding dress that I would like to sell. Do you know of any consignment stores that I could contact?

  6. I wanted to let you and all your readers know that I opened a bridal gown consignment boutique out of my home in February of this year, Gown and Glory Consignment Boutique. We are located just off the QEW, Cawthra exit in Port Credit, Mississauga, L5E 1Y6.

    We are now open to new brides looking for their dream dress at a fraction of the retail price.
    Our website is in design, but check out this hyperlink to see gown photos on our facebook page. New postings twice a week. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Gown-and-Glory-Consignment-Boutique/351586175179?v=photos&ref=ts

    We also accept new and gently worn gowns – 4 years old or less. Special promotion – proceeds of the sale to be split 70/30, instead of 60/40.

  7. Here’s another option: The Brides’ Project: http://www.thebridesproject.com/

    From their site: “The Brides’ Project has two very important purposes: to provide every bride with the things she needs for a beautiful wedding within her budget, and to support cancer charities by donating all our profits.”
