Dress Sale Criteria

Here at Brides Dress Revisited’s bridal boutique, we pride ourselves in offering only the finest second hand designer wedding dresses.

less than two years old (proof of purchase may be required)
in excellent condition
are offered dry cleaned

Dress Collection Service

Wherever you are situated in the country getting your dress to us is easy!

Our team will arrange collection of your gown using our specially designated couriers at no cost to you whatsoever.
All you need to do is advise us of a convenient day between Monday and Friday
and the collection will be made from your chosen address between 9.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m. on that day.

Before collection, simply ensure that your dress is boxed carefully to avoid any damage in transit.
There is no need to arrange postal insurance as we have an agreement with our courier
to insure our collections/deliveries provided they are suitably packaged for transit.

Once your dress has arrived, and we are confident that it is suitable for sale we will advise accordingly and begin to promote the sale of your dress.

Cleaning Advice

Whether you are planning to sell your dress or keep it forever, it is essential that you have it cleaned as soon as possible
after your wedding day and store it in a special way to prevent fading, damage and ageing!

Naturally, given our business of selling previously worn wedding dresses, we have seen various examples of dry cleaned gowns.
Some of these have been expertly cleaned, whilst others sadly have lost their shape, beading or colour.
It is alway so sad to advise a newly married bride that we are unable to offer her dress for sale after the cleaning process has ruined her dress.

With this mind, we would recommend that you use a specialist bridal gown cleaner
to ensure your dress is restored to pristine condition after your special day. It is probably the most expensive dress you will ever purchase so it is worth a few extra pounds to preserve it.

At Brides Dress Revisited, we are very fortunate to work closely with Terrington Burchett
who have over 50 years of experience in cleaning wedding dresses and are the only bridal gown cleaner to use
the specially formulated Baptiste Process (R) cleaning method. To find out more about Terrington Burchett click here.
