How To Box, Pack and Ship Your Dress Correctly

Grab Your Nearly Newlywed Shipping Label

Nearly Newlywed provides a pre-paid shipping label to each seller when a dress is sold for over $500. As a seller or a buyer, we make it easy by sending you email a pre-paid shipping label via email. There is no need to know the shipping address or to calculate shipping charges. 

Prepare Your Dress

Remove your wedding dress from any wedding preservation box. Your buyer will want to try the dress on, so we encourage you inspect your dress outside of the box.  


Find the Right Box

Our shipping labels are created based on standard shipping sizes for wedding dresses.  Please use a sturdy corrugated cardboard box that you can find on Amazon, Staples, or at your local USPS/UPS store for minimal cost (typically under $5).

We recommend one of these following sizes which are readily available on Amazon, Staples and more. If your box is bigger than these sizes, we need to know upfront to adjust our shipping label. So, get a box that is just big enough..not too big.  

L: 18 x W: 16 x H: 9

L: 30 x W: 20 x H: 8

L: 24 x W: 16 x H: 6


Package the Dress

Fold the gown as required and use tissue paper or plastic to cover it (for the unlikely, but possible event, that the box gets wet). Make it look lovely for your buyer to get them excited about their purchase. Consider writing a note to your buyer showing telling her about the dress and your big day! 

Seal the flaps and seams with strong mailing tape that is a minimum width of two inches.

Place the shipping label on top and avoid putting the label over a seam/closure or on top of the tape. Put a duplicate label (with a phone number) inside the box.
