What you must know when buying a used Quinceañera dress

Planning a Quinceañera on a budgetDon’t want to spend most of your budget on a dress you’ll only wear once?

Purchasing a previously worn Quince dress is a really smart decision! It saves you tons of money you can use towards something else for your Quinceañera.

But, where to buy a gorgeous used Quinceañera dress?

Craigslist and eBay are the most popular sites for this type of purchases. Facebook groups are also a great tool to find second-hand party items.

Stores like Goodwill, Savers or even Ross and Marshals are other places that offer a somewhat good party dresses selection.

Another option is to check sites where girls donate their Quinceañera dress and see if you qualify to purchase one.

I’ve found my Quinceañera dress! What’s next?

If you buy your dress from a physical store, the most important thing would be perhaps to ask a little bit of history on the dress, how long ago was it sold or donated to the store and proof that it is an original and you’re not paying for a knockoff.

If the purchase will happen online, though, there are several things to consider, such as:

1) Ask if the dress has any alterations

A Morilee dress with alterations will be worth less since the original style and measurements had changes.

2) Request for the seller to Skype

You need to see proof of the dress and its condition.

3) Location, shipping and return policy

What happens if once it arrives you don’t like it, can you return it?

If so, will the seller pay for the shipping?
