Have you ever wondered what you can do with your once-worn gown after the big day? A tactic that’s become popular among budget-conscious brides these days is selling their designer dress before their wedding. On various wedding web sites, brides can inform potential buyers when their never-worn wedding gowns will be available at a discounted price.
“The economy is still not where we’d all like it to be,” Tracy DiNunzio, CEO and founder of RecycledBride.com said in a Today article. “If you find your dream gown and you know it’s a little bit out of your budget, you can guarantee you’ll make some of your money back even before you wear it.”
What do you think? Let us know in the poll below.

Even though she has been engaged to Muse musician Matthew Bellamy since April 2011, there are no wedding bells just yet for Kate Hudson. In fact, it might be a surprise wedding.
“I think until the day we get married, the answer is going to be, ‘We have no intention right now of getting married.’ And then you’ll find out we got married,” said Kate Hudson in an interview with USA Today. “We have an idea. It’s starting to formulate but it’s a timing thing. But honestly, right now, Matt is touring. Ryder is in school. I’m working.”
Here are our predictions: Maybe she’ll wear a Vera Wang ball gown with Chantilly lace, similar to what she wore in Bride Wars. Or maybe she’ll have another winter wedding and become inspired by this vintage lace gown accented with a matching beaded and embroidered bolero jacket.

Pantone revealed Emerald, “a lively, radiant, lush green,” as its Color of the Year for 2013 on Thursday.
“Green is the most abundant hue in nature–the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, in a press release. “As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”
Not only will Emerald translate into both fashion and home interiors but also weddings. We’ve already seen a few weddings incorporate this hue into their bridesmaid dresses, decor, tablescapes and florals, but will you incorporate this hue into your nuptials in 2013? Let us know in the poll below.

Jessica Simpson reportedly plans to wed former NFL player Eric Johnson before baby number two arrives, according to Huffington Post Weddings.
“Jessica isn’t concerned about her baby bump showing in the wedding pictures and feels she has put off her nuptials for far too long,” a source told Radar Online. “Date-wise, she is thinking before next summer, possibly February or March.”
Here’s what we know: Simpson wore a strapless, lace Vera Wang gown for her first marriage to Nick Lachey in 2002. Now that she’ll be dressing for two, maybe she’ll wear a strapless, mermaid gown with floral embellishments similar to what Bethenny Frankel, who was seven-months-pregnant at the time, wore to her wedding. Or maybe she’ll choose lace again and be modest as she walks down the aisle in a capped sleeved, tulle gown.

Ashley Hebert, who starred in the seventh edition of “The Bachelorette,” is tying the knot to J.P. Rosenbaum in Fiji this weekend. And yes, their wedding will be televised on ABC! The special will air later in December and will include Hebert’s dress fitting and the bachelor and bachelorette parties. Like many other celebrity brides, who have worn colored wedding dresses this year, Hebert hinted that her custom-made gown will not be white as well, according to US Weekly. Here’s our predictions: Maybe she’ll wear a pink gown similar to Anne Hathaway and Jessica Biel or maybe start a new trend with a silver ruffled gown accented with a floral embellishment.
