 :wave: we have a half mannequin if that would be any use? Its gold and has a hanger on the top so could hang from a door to let the dresses drape nicely?

Would it be possible to get pictures of the dresses on the dummy maybe?  On a person would be better but to get things moving ...

Maybe Seran would model her dress  :thinkin:

I very much hope so Audrey, its just that my son is scheduled for two birthday parties that day so I'm going to have to ask the ex to do the child ferrying service and I'm not terribly hopeful.

Ooh Julia, if I gate crash yours with the clothes will you help me do the photos please?

there is a shop in Newport that takes dresses and sells them for u. I know they take prom dresses just not sure about wedding dresses, may be good to look into though x

Excellent, sounds like we have a plan  :clap:

I shall look forward to some lovely pics very soon.

Might also be worth a call to the shop in Newport if anyone's willing to do that?

I did wonder how much of a % they would take.  That's quite high isn't it.  I suppose the question is do we think that a shop would be able to sell for a higher price than we could on Ebay.  It definitely would be a simpler option until we can hopefully get this up and running properly  :-\
