Long-time lurker, first-time poster. I have decided early on that I do NOT want to spend a ton of money on a dress that only gets worn once. Plus I would like to be a bit more friendly to the environment than in buying a brand new dress. But I don't want to sacrifice quality over cost. I want my wedding to be about the celebration, not a single dress - although that would definitely be a perk!
I know I could potentially find a great dress at thrift stores, but that is a big IF and could run the risk of it not fitting/buyers' remorse, etc.
But I recently
found a website in which people sell their wedding dresses at a
discount! The website is Nearly Newlywed - I have been browsing
moderately and it seems to be legit and potentially fantastic for a
bride on a budget (or anyone really).
Do you guys have any suggestions over ways to buy a cheaper dress?
Are there potential pitfalls in this endeavor?
What has been your experience?
