I got a great tip from one of our former coordinators, Lauren, about a great alternative to leaving all those old bridesmaid dresses hanging in your closet! Check out NewlyMaid.com! They accept dresses from ALL manufacturers including bridesmaids, mother of the bride, social occasion and prom dresses. The dress must be in good quality condition with no pulls, tears, stains or other blemishes. All zippers and clasps must be in good working order.
How does it work? You request a mailer from their website, and then package your dress and send it in. They inspect the dress, and then credit your account. You go back to their website, and purchase an awesome new Little Black Dress, like the one shown here, for a discounted rate.
What happens to your old dress? Newly Maid will either recycle the fabric and turn it into a new garment, or they will donate the dress to a charity organization.
As you are cleaning out your closet at the end of the year, why not make some extra room and ditch the old dresses?
