Bridal Gown Consignment
Many future brides are looking to save money purchasing a dress for their big day, but did you know the
Fargo/Moorhead area has eight bridal stores, and Bismarck and Grand Forks each have four?!
Our bridal consignment needs and process has changed greatly since opening in 2018 - we have learned what
brides want and don't want in a dress! We now will only accept gowns purchased in 2019 or sooner to keep with
all current styles and trends, and have competitive inventory with other stores! We have also changed the criteria
and the suggested pricing guidelines (see below).
We ask for clean gown - so if it has not been cleaned previously and you would like to know
if we can accept it before hand, that is understandable. We can also supply some recommendations for you!
If it has been altered, but never worn, we do NOT consider it new - as it no longer is. We will mark these
as "Altered, never worn" but must be priced as non-new gowns.
We will not consign "custom" or standard size wedding gowns ordered from online mass-produced retailers
(eg: Amazon, JJ’s House, Ada's Bridal, TB Dress, Light In The Box, Wedding Dress, and others similar).
We no longer accept size 0 or 2; they must be a new size 4 or larger.
If any other size has been altered to a size 4 or below, we will no longer accept those either.
Altered below 5'3" height are extremely hard sells and will no longer be accepted. We will measure specific lengths
during the inspection for consideration. We do take into account a small heel height for all dresses.
Worn and altered David's Bridal gowns will be considered on a case-by-case basis, with many not being accepted; These gowns are greatly discounted after each season and are hard to sell next to new David's Bridal and/or higher designer gowns.
Bridal Gown consignment must be submitted through email for consideration before being brought in for inspection due to too many rejections from age and/or styles.
Email must contain as much info as possible to help identify:
} Location or store purchased from
} Year purchased
} Worn or Not worn
} Off the rack, Sample sale, or Ordered
} Cleaned or Not Cleaned
} Retail price at time of purchase
} Your price paid
} Alterations made, including height
} Items added to dress (such as belt, sleeves, etc.)
} Info from receipt or tags on dress (brand, style number, size, etc.)
} Photos of dress, tags, and receipt if still available
Consignment appointments usually take about 15 minutes. We inspect your dress, discuss pricing, and fill out a contract.
During the appointment, we’ll give you honest advice on how much we think your dress is likely to sell for.
The year, size, condition, retail price and style are all factored into the agreed upon price.
>>Once-worn and sample wedding dresses are usually priced at around 40-60% off original retail.
>>New, current styles wedding dresses in perfect condition should be priced 20-40% off retail.
Once your dress sells, you will receive payment for 50% of the listing price.
