Selling your dress

If you are a recent bride who wore the dress of your dreams but now the wedding is over?.  Have you considered selling your dress?  While this might not be something you have thought of, here are a few reasons why this might be an option for you:

    • Your beautiful dress wont be stuck at the back of your wardrobe just gathering dust
    • You can pass on the dress of your dreams to another beautiful bride to also make her day just as special as yours
    • The money you spent on your dress could be used to purchase other items you can spend as a couple such as a holiday, a new home or renovations

We understand that you will have an emotional attachment to your dress.  Every bride is the same with remembering her special day.  The photos you have will always serve as fond memories which you can share with your family and friends.  You just cant do this with a dress!  Your dress is just a token of the day, just the same as the beautiful table settings you worked so hard to prepare.  Your memories of your special day can never be taken away.

At Lisa O’Dwyer, we will sell the dress of your dreams on consignment.  This means that we work together on setting the price you want for your dress and then we sell it for you.  Our role at Bridal Belle Boutique is to market and advertise your dress to other up and coming brides who are looking for the fairytale dress just like you were.

ForLisa O’Dwyer to put your dress on consignment, they must be:

    • Less than 3 years old
    • In excellent condition
    • Dry cleaned and proof of cleaning provided i.e. receipt from the dry cleaner
    • Provided with the original dress bag
    • Provided with the original receipt of purchase

Also consider, if your dress is a designer brand, some proof of its authenticity will generally help it get a better price.

If you are interested in placing your wedding dress on consignment with us, please email us directly and tell us about your dress.  You will be contacted and asked to provide a photo of the front and back of the dress.  If your dress is taken on consignment, these photos will be used for advertising purposes.

Once your dress is sold, only then will your consignment fee be charged.  The balance will be direct deposited into your account within 5 working days.

Lisa O’Dwyer will take the best of care with your dress.  All dresses will be stored in their original dress bag.  Individual appointment times are made with each bride to be.  They are asked to wear no make up and requested to take off their shoes when trying your dress on.  We also only handle our dresses when wearing cotton gloves only.

How your dress arrived with us will be how it leaves, just beautiful.
