Bridal Gown Consignment

Many future brides are looking to save money purchasing a dress for their big day!

But did you know that the F/M area has 8 bridal stores, and Bismarck & Grand Forks each have 4?! Bridal gown consignment has changed greatly since opening in 2018. We have learned what brides want and don't want in a dress and now will only accept gowns that would be sellable in store. Gowns must be purchased in 2019 or sooner to keep with current styles and demands; and to be competitive with other stores.


  • 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 5'4" 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.

  • 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 higher designer gowns.

Consignment appointments take about 15 minutes. We inspect your dress, discuss pricing, and fill out a contract. Any information you have makes this appointment quicker.

We will give you honest advice on how much we think your dress is likely to sell for.

The designer, year, size, condition, retail price, and style are all factored into the agreed upon price. 

New or not new will also greatly affect price; alterations are also considered.


Please bring information such as receipt, brand/designer and style information, etc.

for us to determine if we can accept it and how to price accordingly.

You receive payment upon sale of your item(s).

See Consignment Contract & Bridal Addendum for details.

Consignment Submission

Email should contain as much info as possible to help identify:
  • Location or store purchased from
