Woman Creates Most Hilarious Ad To Sell Her Wedding Dress After Her Ex Betrayed Her

Would you ever wear a second-hand dress on your wedding?

Is your wedding date coming near? Have you decided what dress you’re going to be wearing on your special day? Well, it’s your lucky day. We could have solved your problem; only slightly, though. Check out this Trade Me ad below if you want to see the dress we’ve picked out for you.

Disappointment and heartbreak sometimes bring out the best in people.

And so it did for this woman from New Zealand. After a break-up or a divorce, most of us usually start up on bringing ourselves back to normal by hitting the gym or the salon, or meeting up with friends over coffee and go shopping. While others bury themselves in bed, soaking up in their own tears and finishing a whole pack of ice cream or a bottle of wine by themselves. But this lady here did something a little out of the normal.

After her not-so-happy marriage ended, she posted an ad on Trade Me auctioning off her wedding dress. Yes, that’s right, she’s auctioning off her wedding dress! Go and check it out before someone else gets their hands on it!

This is what she posted by the way. See if you’re interested in her ad.

Please help remove this dress from my life, it no longer means anything to me.

Some might think it’s a lucky dress while other may suppose it’s a cursed one!

It is in excellent condition – unlike my marriage – Pretty much brand new and ready for a legit wedding after a practice run back in 2013. This stunning off white gown would fit a 12-16 as it has a lace up back so very versatile it comes with a certificate of authenticity and I have personally hand-washed the bad luck out of it! More than welcome to come try on and give it a twirl to make sure it fits and suits you. Cannot provide measurements as this was custom made for a little girl who thought she deserved less than what she was worth and she is now a strong woman – cannot measure up.

It looks stunning on, enough so that it will distract you and your guests from the fact that you are marrying a compulsive liar. Also great evening wear if you enjoy a night out and want people to buy you drinks or would be an excellent outfit choice for house cleaning and dishes (if Disney role play is your thing).


More about the dress…

It is made from chiffon and is A-Line with side ruffles. It has an internal back strap (with being a strapless the added support to stay up alone is priceless) and has a beautiful belt added for a touch a sparkle. The back is lace tie so can be adjustable if you fluctuate in size which again is an added bonus!

I would ideally like over $300 for this dress, as this would pay for a year’s gym member ship for me to loose the kilos I put on from such a miserable marriage – either that or a decent night out on the wines, both are needed – so make an offer!

Happy to also provide pictures of my shoes that I can chuck in for a good price. Those aren’t needed anymore either because I walked away with the feet I was born with and will keep moving forward with those (keeping the veil for the ‘out of toilet paper’ emergencies).

Please ask if you have any questions.

NOTE: Apologies for the photos some of these I have lost around 90kgs of baggage.

Pick up Masterton, Wairarapa.

Currently bidding on $665 AUS, the dress is expected to higher as there are still a couple of days left until the auction comes to an end. She did post a few other things in the comments as the media outlets wouldn’t stop nagging her about the offer.

Seller comment: Thank you everyone for your much appreciated comments and questions. Sadly the NZ media have taken my responses and your questions on this auction, and used them against our wishes as direct “quotations” from myself. So for my safety these will no longer be viewed, I have declined media comment as the focus is the auction and moving in with my life 🙂 all I have to say is in this auction. 6:32 am, Thu 11 Jan


Seller comment: I do get notifications in my inbox of your messages and i’m overwhelmed by the love and support out there for this auction and my future to be successful. Many thanks xx 6:32 am, Thu 11 Jan

There have been more shenanigans like this on the internet in the past after the women were cheated on by their husbands. Take a look.



There’s more guys.

Oh, but this one is the best so far. This woman managed to auction off her beautiful wedding dress for over $85000! And that too to pay for her divorce. I truly admire her guts.


As for her ex-husband, he also came out to explain his side of the story, which is only fair as he gave his appreciation for her post and creating a positive side out of the miserable divorce.
