What should your
- You should give as much detail as possible about your wedding dress. Size your dress accurately, for example, if your dress was a size 14 when you bought it and you had it taken in, you will need to include this information under ‘Alterations’ and size your dress as a size 12-14.
- Also if your dress has any marks or damage these should also be listed under the dress description.
- Second hand/once worn designer wedding dresses on sale prices will be approximately half their original price. This pricing rule would be based on the dress being recently purchased, in excellent condition and having been professionally cleaned.
- Trending wedding dresses in Ireland that are unworn/unaltered/new, with tags attached, will have a higher value and your asking sale price should reflect this.
- If you are in doubt as to what price to put on your dress, have a look through the dress galleries and compare your dress to similar dresses. Also, feel free to contact us at email@example.com and we will be happy to help you.
You can upload your pictures to the website, through the ‘Sell My Dress’ link or if you prefer you can e-mail them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will upload for you. We will re-size and edit pictures where necessary. Please ensure to let us know if you want your face removed from the pictures.
All items listed for sale must have an accompanying picture. It is our policy not to display items without a picture. We reserve the right not to display pictures we deem unfit or unsuitable. Submitted pictures should not depict dresses or items owned by other people.
Please be vigilant with your personal details and especially your bank details.
Beware of suspect inquiries. Establish a relationship with an interested buyer and offer to meet them face to face. A genuine buyer should agree to meet and want to see the wedding dress in person. Beware if they are reluctant to do this or ask you to post on the dress.
Only accept cash, and use a counterfeit pen if you have one. Only accept payment by cheque if you can hold onto your dress until the cheque has cleared at your bank. Payment should be for the exact amount that you and the buyer agreed on.
Common signs of a suspect buyer to be aware of:
- If the buyer seems odd in any way or out of the ordinary.
- Male buyer, buying for his daughter, fiancée, etc. This is not normal practice.
- A buyer offers to pay more than the asking price. This scam involves the buyer giving you a cheque for more than the asking price and asking you to give them the difference as cashback.
- Ignore all e-mails from these types of buyers and forward e-mails to us at email@example.com
- Use common sense. If something sounds too good to be true it probably is!
