We has to cancel our wedding due to COVID. My bridesmaids are wondering what to do with their dresses. Any ideas from anyone that has had to cancel? I said maybe we can sell them. We do plan on having a ceremony eventually but we postponed our first date and now had to cancel the new one. We will probably do something in a year or so.
You can either ask them to hold onto their dresses for another year (if that's when you are rescheduling for and still want your wedding party to participate in the ceremony on the new date), otherwise maybe try to sell them on Poshmark or eBay or another site online? Will the dress store that they originally bought them from allow them to be returned?

Of course I’d pay them back if we can’t return them!! I was planning on it anyway if we don’t end up selling them! Or at least giving half of it back to them I feel awful for having them buy dresses they won’t get to wear till who knows when.
you're looking for another place to potentially sell them, there are
some local FB wedding group marketplaces. Dresses can be pretty hard to
sell from what I've heard, but it's worth a shot if you don't want them
to hang onto the dresses.
