This was my dress (<---clicky). It is a Bonny. Found it on clearance. Fell in love with it. I was against having a train, but when I tried this dress on, I could not imagine not having a train.
I goy my dress at Alfred Angelo I love it so much!!!! I just bought it, so it isn't altered to me yet, but I am so excited to get it fitted and wear it on my wedding day! I"m going to have them add a horsehair trim at the bottom, so the tulle isn't as whispy as it is now and looks a bit more finished.

I said yes to the dress!! I'm in love. It's an Alfred Angelo dress A line- Empire waist lace dress style 801. The dress in the picture was a tad small so it's pulling more across the middle then it normally would. I'm also getting a corset back. The belt in the middle was added on to give it some sparkle.
My dress is size 20W- Alfred Angelo - color white/claret 1516W style 146. I bought the dress about a year or so ago and at the time it just about fit. It was a little bit big but could have been altered. Our wedding just seems to keep being pushed out and I have been on a diet and have lost too much weight to even consider trying to alter it and I am still losing weight so by the time I am finished losing weight it most definitely will not be able to be taken in. It will ruin the dress and not look the same if I attempt to have that much material taken in and I'm not going to risk doing that to something so expensive. So basically I have a wedding gown that I tried on once and will never be able to wear. I have it for sale on Craigs List but no bites on it. I looked it up online and this exact same dress is going for $899.00. If anyone knows a plus sized woman that needs a dress have her check out the pictures. I have it listed for $800 ($99 less than I've seen it advertized) and will include the head piece I got too but will consider decent offers.
unfortunately, dresses sold by a private seller (not a salon or online retailer) usually sell for about half of their original price. That dress is currently selling on the Alfred Angelo website for $999.00. So, chances are, you won't be able to sell it for more than $500-600.00.
Try listing it on tradesy.com also. You can also try listing it on the classifieds here on theknot, preownedweddingdresses.com or oncewed.com (not all of those sites are free to list, I think oncewed charges a fee. But again, you probably need to list it for about $600 to get anyone's interest.
PS - I just looked on tradesy, and that dress is selling for between $250-650ish.
