I have a dream. I want to make a wedding dress by hand in size 6,(relative standard) and make it absolutely gorgeous. Hand beading, embroidery, the works. Then I want to sell it.

But I have no idea where.

Brides are a special market, and, never having been a bride, I don't know where they look.

Where would be the best place to sell a handmade wedding gown?

It's just one, eh? Well, you can make the one dress, post it up on every site that could possibly sell it (ebay, etsy and the like, Craig's list, and more and more), post it on all online wedding directories, and send a photo of it to local wedding consultants. You might consider shopping it around to other wedding shops for a commission sale.

It's tough having just one thing to sell - particularly as it comes only in one size - so it should be the best wedding dress ever and have a huge price tag, too.

Brides like to chat A LOT about the prep for their big day in wedding forums, that might be a great place to start but just make sure you read the rules on what you can and can't post on there!
