Pre-owned wedding dresses

I am considering buying the dress of my dreams from another knottie, but I want to make sure I have all my bases covered.  If you bought a dress from someone, what questions did you ask?

So far I have: what are your measurements, is it clean, how was it altered, does it have the certificate of authenticity and orignial receipt?

    is it in a smoke free home? if it has beading.. does it bring extra beads? (I bought a back up dress that had extra beads in a little baggie.)   Does it have any tears, rips or damages, even if they are small? 

    I'm assuming you can't see it in person, huh?

    Ooo I didn't think about extra beads.  The knottie is in California so I cannot see it in person first. Sigh.

    I am getting a pre-owned dress from someone in California too.  I asked the same questions above.  Her wedding was blogged on Stylemepretty, so I was able to see it in advance.  The only problem with her dress is that 1 of the 3 bustle buttons is missing.  I am just planning to take an extra one off from the bottom of the buttons along the zipper to replace it.

    I would love to be able to buy a dress from someone down here, but I would love to be a size 4 even more lol.  I would need a size 8 or 10.
