This month we went looking for inspiration of what our Still White brides are doing with the money from the successful sales of their dress.
Like newly-wed Holly, lots of girls are putting the extra cash into their honeymoon. Holly successfully sold her Sharon Bowen wedding dress, after 896 views for NZ$1000 within 4 weeks. Here is how Holly came to the decision to sell her wedding dress:
"The decision to sell my wedding dress was not an easy one at all, this after all was the dress I got married in and in my eyes was the most stunning dress I had ever owned. I knew that it was something that I would always do though. The thought of my dress that cost me a small fortune to buy, collecting dust and discolouring over the years was depressing. If someone else could feel the way that I did on my wedding day then that was a massive positive and made it totally worth it.
"My husband and I decided that we would put the money from selling the dress into making new memories and we used it towards our amazing honeymoon in Rarotonga, Cook Islands earlier this year. It’s been months since I sold my dress and I have no regrets."
