The area's only resale​ & consignment formal wear store!

Finding a re-purpose for all things formal

Bridal ~ Prom ~ Pageant ~ Cocktail


Formally Yours

Formally Yours Resale & Consignment is a store in downtown Fargo, specializing in pre-owned bridal gowns, semi-formal to formal wear, & accessories, for events such as weddings, proms, school dances, formal & semi-formal gatherings, galas, balls, parties; even vacations. 

All items will be accepted in by a consignment contract with Formally Yours; we do not buy item(s) outright. Please visit each tab throughout the website for more information & frequently asked questions on each topic. We hope to see you soon!


Bridal gown shopping is always by appointment. Unfortunately we have seen a current trend & have been asked to try on dresses with no engagement or wedding planned; We do not like to accommodate these practices as it is repeated wear & tear or soiling on consignors dresses with no intent to purchase. We do not want to loose bridal gown consignors due to condition of non-sold items.

For more scheduling info or to view current selection, please visit: Bridal Gowns



Event shopping such as prom, gala, military ball, mother-of, wedding guest, etc. is always WALK-IN during Tuesday through Friday. 


Saturdays are by appointment for everybody, no matter the event! If we are full, we will tell you the next time opening available. Weekdays are first come, first serve & with being naturally slower days, most never wait more than 5-10 minutes for a room!




All consignment intake is by appointment to ensure staff availability, avoid multiple consignors at one time, & avoid times during scheduled bridal parties.

Information & Notes:

PROM 2024

Consignment intake is complete.

Friday, Feb. 16, is the last day for consignment intake! We have hit the busiest season of the year - prom! With wedding, gala, and prom shopping between February and April, we just CANNOT continue our normal acceptance of items in! No walk-ins will be accepted.

BUT, if you have a bridal gown or dresses size 14 and up, we will still work with you to consign, but it must be pre-arranged with Jill or Katie!

We have done this halt each year during this time to be able to provide our full attention to our shoppers during this period.


Call 701.639.2146 with any questions.

Help up HELP the most customers!

Is your upcoming event MORE THAN 4 MONTHS AWAY?

This is a hard post to address, but we are seeing so many event shoppers filling Saturday appointments for events in August, September, December, etc! If you (not counting Bridal gowns) are only coming in to look and just get ideas for an event that far out, you are taking the precious spots of others shopping for events in 2 weeks to 2 months!

Prom is the absolute busiest season, and we still have galas and weddings going on in January through May, simultaneously.

WHY DO WE SCHEDULE APPOINTMENTS ON SATURDAYS? Because I want to give the utmost attention and customer service to those who booked ahead. We do NOT make you wait in a line for 20 to 40 minutes, and we allow the shopper and their guests to all go look through the dresses to select try-ons. We bring all people in 15-minute increments to have some personal space while selecting gowns. It is controlled chaos and I will not change that!



We start accepting appts. on Sundays for PROM shopping only starting January 28th! This helps those from out of town or who could not get in on other days.


Call 701.639.2146 to schedule your time. We have specific guidelines for Sunday shopping and may appear as "closed" on Google Business hours. We will discuss this with you while making your appointment.



Saturday by Appointment (since 2020)

We can only accept walk-in customers if there is a fitting room & a team member available to help the guest.  Keep in mind that many stores schedule staff based on pre-scheduled appointments & busy seasons.

You can call ahead for the next time slot open for that day. We allow a

10 minute delay for lateness, after that the (No-Show policy) time slot can & will be given to the next person available unless you call to notify.


I strive to help each guest with the utmost attention & help each find

the perfect items for their event. Call 701.639.2146 to schedule;

emails are not always monitored.
