Say Yes to the Pre-Owned Wedding Dress!

A wedding dress is the crown jewel and the object of affection of every wedding, with every fluff of its skirt and every bead in the bodice being chosen with extreme care and precision.

Used Wedding Dress However, once the confetti settles and the last of the guests drive away, that same wedding dress goes into the dress bag and towards the back of the closet, never to see the light of day again. Meanwhile, at the other end of the city, a bride-to-be is hunting for her perfect wedding dress, she has a few special wedding dress styles in mind, but everything off-the-rack is far from the perfect fit for her vision as well as her wedding budget. Who knew that her perfect fit lies in the back of the closet somewhere, waiting for another chance to shine? If only there was a way they could help each other out. If only there was a perfect match. Oh wait, there is! Borrowing Magnolia comes with a remarkable hand-selected collection of new, gently used wedding dresses, and sample wedding gowns that run across a wide range of wedding sizes. Here you get to score designer wedding dresses– all marked up to 80% off the original retail price, which means your dream wedding remains uncompromised, without letting it dent your bank account! An endearingly positive platform and an intriguing online bridal marketplace, this is where our eco-friendly brides and resellers get to transact directly. There are no middlemen in the picture, which makes wedding resale possibilities a lot more transparent and fair at both ends. Borrowing Magnolia makes the fun process of wedding dress shopping even more fun, by lending a treasure-hunt allure to it, with a touch of magic. Each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind and special in its own device. You get to choose from a range of different wedding dresses, just like you would if you were buying a dress from your favorite website- the only difference being that each used wedding dress comes bearing a romantic history and a story of its own. We believe that a wedding dress, as special as it is, is meant to make more memorable moments throughout its life rather than being a one-time wonder. The fact that every wedding gown whispers a love story from the past makes them enchanting in every way. It has lived more and has been loved a little more. It knows wonder over a freshly bought dress which has never been wowed by a crowd or has never been zipped by the mother of a blushing bride. It’s shared the final gaze before the walk down the aisle, as she preens into the mirror with stars in her eyes. This preloved wedding dress has most likely drawn tears from a beloved’s eyes in appreciation and its abundant lace and tulle have swayed to the mellow number on someone’s first dance. With so much life and love wrapped in its box, it promises a magical life to its new owner too, as that's what a wedding dress’s purpose is!

    Take some amazing pictures of your beautiful dress. Make sure you have multiple shots of the dress in the hanger, close-ups, and even some of you wearing the dress on your wedding day.

  • Step 2: List it!

    Create a proper listing on the site and fill in as many details as you can. The more accurate you are here, the more helpful it will be for the buyer. Your resale listing will be live instantly once you complete the checkout process.

  • Step 4: Interact and Negotiate

    This is the fun part! This is where you entertain all queries regarding the dress and agree on the price and other terms and conditions along with the shipping.

  • Step 5: Payment and Shipping

    After the deal is sealed, things move fast from here on. While the buyer concludes the payment procedure, you get to ship it off to the new owner’s address, so that your wedding dress can deliver more smiles for the bride waiting on the other end.
