Donating Your

Wedding Gown

In the U.S. consider donating your wedding gown to, a non-profit that grants expenses for weddings and vow renewals to couples facing serious illness or life-altering health circumstances.  They accept wedding party dresses and other specialty gowns, too, and all proceeds from gown sales at their partner site go to fund events for wedding-wish recipients.  Brides Across America accepts cash donation to fund the purchase of wedding gowns for military women.  There is also Fairytale Brides for women on a budget in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia, and proceeds go to select charities.  In Australia you may donate to the Angel Gown Program or the Salvation Army.

Selling Your

Wedding Gown

The international website offers a very helpful calculator for estimating the value of your wedding gown.  For a nominal one-time fee (and no commission on the sale), you can list your wedding dress for as long as you like.  In the U.S., and in Australia, are also good places to sell your wedding gown online. 

You can also google “vintage wedding dress sales.”  For local consignment shops, google “wedding gown consignment shops.”
