If you’ve had the honor of participating in a bridal party or two, you might be wondering what to do with your bridesmaid dresses, which, sadly, you’ll never wear in public ever again. NewlyMaid.com offers a solution for those of us looking to recycle our old dresses and possibly get a new one in return. Created by the Dessy Group, a manufacturer of formal wear, the website allows people to send in their old bridesmaid or prom dresses in a pre-paid envelope in exchange for one of their six black dresses!
As long as you package it correctly, and there are no stains/rips on the dress, you’ll receive a 30-50% off credit to be applied towards the purchase of any of the six black dresses valued at close to $200 each. If the condition of your dress is in good order, it will be recycled or donated to Clothes4Souls.com, a charity which provides new and gently used clothes to those who need it around the world. Although, they will not accept actual bridal gowns or flower girl, quinceanera dresses.
We think this is a great way to “go green” and give your old bridesmaid dress another chance to see the light of day!
