You probably already know that buying used wedding dresses can be a great way to save money and not blow your budget. But do you know where to find your dream wedding dress without paying too much? The list below will give you insight into where to search for beautiful used wedding dresses.
1. Friends and Family
If you have a friend or family member who still has their wedding dress, they may be willing to give you a great deal on their dress. They may even let you borrow it for free! The down side to borrowing a friend or family member’s dress is that the dress must be returned and isn’t yours to keep.
2. Consignment store
You never know what gems you may find at a consignment store. There’s always the chance that you may find a beautiful, designer gown at a great price. However, unless the store specializes in wedding dresses or gowns, you’ll have to search through A LOT of stuff to see if there’s anything right for you.
These days you can find almost anything online and used wedding dresses are no exception. From Ebay to TheDressList.com, there are countless websites you can search. Most websites list only designer gowns and charge a fee to listers. “The Dress List” lets you search for dresses locally which would give you the opportunity to try a dress on before you buy it. On Ebay you’ll find gowns in an auction type setting where items go to the highest bidder.
Wherever you look for used wedding dresses, remember that you don’t have to sacrifice what you want for what you can afford. Dresses can be altered and embellishments can be added to ensure that the dress you wear is the dress of your dreams. Not only will save money, but you’ll look absolutely amazing in your wedding dress.
