Where to sell my wedding dress???

Can anyone give me ideas of where to sell my wedding dress? Obviously ebay but im worried I wont get what I want for it. Can you take them into dress stores and they buy them of you and what sort of price do they give you. Is there websites you can advertise?

Re: Professional/ultrasonic cleaning.

I'm lucky I have an ultrasonic cleaner at work so i can do mine whenever i want!

You can actaully buy your own ultrasonic cleaner too. All you need to do is put in a little dishwashing liquid in it and you can clean all your jewelery at home!

My fiances face is blotchy and he has uneven skin tone, if i took him with me when I got my makeup done do you reckon it will look natural on him to maybe just get a bit of foundation o...

I've booked mine through Mel from Sweet Ideas on the main land and her price came back heaps cheaper then Hamilton Islands quote. Let me know if you would like her contact details. Hi amz,...

Different Bomboniere

Re: Should I send an invite?

I have to disagree with everyone, sorry :( I wouldnt waste my money on invites if i didnt need to (But i am a tight arse). But i was lucky enough to have my aunt make mine for free. Otherwise the packet idea is a good one, you wouldnt be out of pocket anymore then $10.

Re: eloping confusion??

Everyones different, in our case everyone is paying for their own airfares and accommadation but we are still paying for the reception venue. Some people do pay for their guests accommadation and airfares but i guess that would be much more expensive then a local wedding. Then there are some people ...
