When a used wedding gown comes to mind you may think, “The dress won’t be as special,” “The dress has been worn by another bride,” “The dress will not be one of a kind.” This is not the case at all. Here are five great reasons to buy a used wedding dress.
No. 5 “Green” Is the New “White”
“Green” Is the New “White” when it comes to being environmentally savvy. This is not referring to finding that perfect green wedding dress, this means you are taking an initiative to purchase and own a recycled gown on your wedding day. Buying another woman’s wedding gown and wearing that preowned dress is a rather intelligent choice.
No. 4 You’ll Only Wear it Once
You are wearing this dress once. One day, one celebration for all to see. Used wedding dresses are just as special as never worn before wedding dresses. The gown that you are about to purchase was treated with genuine care because for someone else, like you, that dress was one of the most important aspects of the wedding to the bride.
No. 3 The Two Dress Bride
You are a woman who cannot decide on just one dress and rather wear two dresses on your special day. Going the used route seems more logical and practical. If you want a dress change during your ceremony and reception having two preowned gowns is a perfect choice.
No. 2 People Pleaser
Your mother wants you to wear a conservative ball gown on your wedding day, you really do not want to disappoint your loving and giving mother. You on the other hand want a sexy chic dress to recite your vows in and dance the evening away with your future groom. Finding both wedding gowns at a heavily discounted price because they are used is reason enough to buy both styles. Wear one for bridal portraits and the other to the actual wedding.
No. 1 Bride on a Budget
You’d love a Vera Wang wedding dress, but cannot even begin to think how you would afford a couture gown. Buy a used designer dress at a fraction of the original cost and wow everyone at your wedding. At the end of the night you won’t be wishing you could return the over priced lux wedding dress. You bought a preowned designer gown, dazzled your husband and guests and no one was the wiser.
