Why Shop Resale


Bridesy was founded on a few straight forward ideas: women don’t want or NEED to shop full price for the looks they want.  A majority of people are always looking to get rid of old stuff and make some extra cash in the process. You agree with at least one of these, right?  

I need to blow your mind for a quick second. According to PlanetAid.com It takes 700 gallons of water to make a cotton shirt. Clothes can take up to 40 years to decompose. Shoes can take up to 1,000 years to break down. These facts alone should make you think twice before buying new or even trashing something old! I mean, I shop new sometimes, we all do! But, even just making an effort half of the time can make a difference. Resell or donate! Do your part! 

It’s 2019. There are so many places you can look to buy gently used clothing online!


There are brick and motor stores out there where you drop off a bin of clothing and get pennies back. An example: The other day I went to a local resale shop to try and make some quick cash off items that weren’t selling online. They gave me $32 for probably $400 worth of clothes! It was frustrating. But if you wait and sell each piece individually you will probably make much more. I knew that….but I was impatient. (I’m planning a wedding y’all. lol)


You can also donate to local thrift shops. Donating is also a great idea because you can use it as a tax write off and get some cash back on the back end, during tax season. But still many women want the instant gratification of a sale. 


What’s one girls’ trash is another’s treasure right!? The wedding market is a billion-dollar industry. When you mention the world “BRIDE” or “WEDDING” it has been proven that things get marked up! Listen to this…I just saw a dress online in pink that was $575 dollars. When I switched the color to white, it jumped up to $890! WHAT!? My mouth dropped.  


I bought one of my wedding gowns at a sample sale for 60% off! It was in great condition. it just had one stain that was easily removed with Oxyclean. The markups on bridal clothing continuously blows my mind. Therefore, reselling and buying gently used can save you hundreds. Most of the time brides will buy full price dresses for that special shower or party and it will sit in the back of their closet for months! Now, you can just upload, and share with millions of other brides who are looking for a bargain. Help a girl out, right? 



There are dozens of resale shops on the internet but Bridesy is focused on the Bridal events, the white dresses, the special jewelry and the shoes. We’re an easy one stop shop to look for anything you may need for all the events leading up to the big day.


We hope you find the beautiful clothing and accessories for your big day without breaking the bank! Think twice before paying full price.

Until next time babes,
