Online Exclusive: Address the Dress

Resell your dress – with so many online options, like Ebay, Tradesy, and many more (hint: Google resell wedding dress and see what you find), reselling your dress is a viable option from the comfort of your own home.  If you’re short on space and need to get your dress to another location, there are many bridal consignment shops that will handle the sales process for you for a commission.
