Have y’all thought about what you might do with your wedding dress after your wedding? I’ve actually thought about it a lot. My wedding gown budget was somewhat in the middle of the spectrum – about $1,500, including alterations. That’s more than the national average (which is $1,121, in case you’re wondering!), but it’s not enough to afford most of the couture designers, like Monique, Vera, and Amsale. And if you recall, I loved gowns from all three of those ladies :)
So when I locked eyes on the dress that I knew was mine, my heart sunk a little at the price. After talking it over with my Mom, though, we agreed that if I sold my wedding dress after the wedding, we would recoup enough to make the dress fall into our initial budgeted amount (so, dress purchase price – dress resale price = our final price – make sense?).
And that’s where today’s sponsor, PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com, comes in! They provide the perfect outlet for those looking to sell used wedding dresses. They’re also, of course, a great resource for anyone looking to buy a pre-loved wedding dress, as you can search by designer, size, price, location, and silhouette, among other options!
Since these gals have more than 9,500 wedding dresses (from 300 different designers!) listed, I thought it would be fun to show y’all three of our favorites currently for sale. Here we go!
The first is the lovely “Aspen,” from Monique Lhuillier’s Fall 2011 collection, listed for $3,500 here. I have to say, my favorite part of this listing might be the photo of the happy bride – makes me excited to think about the next lady who might enjoy my dress after I’m through loving it!
Next we have “Rochelle” by Kenneth Pool, quite the stunner with her dramatic trumpet skirt and glamorous beading. She’s available for $3,500 here.
Long time readers will for sure recognize Blakely, the dress of choice of our former editor Katharine (didn’t she look amazing at her wedding??). This Amsale stunner is on sale for $2,000 here, which is such a steal!
Trust me, those are just three of thousands upon thousands of dresses waiting for a new home! Ready to start looking? We recommend browsing the Dresses We Love, Most Viewed, Best Deals, or New Listings of the Week pages!
