Definitely a personal choice but I’d be fine with it!! I think there’s some superstitions (same thing with pre-owned engagement rings and wedding rings) but I don’t put much stock in that- if you find one you love and it saves you money I’d say go for it!!
I was going to go that route but then I found lace Mary on Etsy. She’s making my custom lace a line wedding dress for $600. Her reviews are amazing and she’s super communicative. I would check her out!
Absolutely fine! It’s a great way to get a more expensive dress than you could afford new. Mine was never owned by another bride but it was a sample worn by several brides. I would’ve bought used from another bride if I liked the dress.
Found the dress I wanted for half off, used and completely unaltered and I JUMPED on it. I'm not sure I would have gone for it if it had been seriously altered before, but it was practically brand new. Definitely a steal.
I got my dress for 50 on ebay. Brand new with tags, never tried on until I put it on. I have a little bit of altering to do but it's amazing and I'm in love with it!!! I'm in the process of adding a pocket for my phone (and tissues), making a petticoat, and when his clothes come in, I'm going to find a nice chunk of fabric similar (if not exactly like his) for a belt for my dress. Hit up ebay or amazon! They've saved us SO MUCH MONEY!!
We did that. Mine was used; NotFroofy's was a sample. The only thing I would caution you about is that if you are buying online (as opposed to a consignment store), you try on the dress at a local salon before buying. It is really hard to tell from a photo how a dress will look on you.
I'm going buy a second hand dress. There is a second bridal shop in my town, all the proceeds go to help end Sex Trafficking. It's important to me to give back and support non-profits and local businesses. A second hand dress can also be altered to make it your own.
I think it’s okay. I’m looking for pre owned dresses. It’s all about how you feel. I just learned about a site called preownedweddingdresses.com i haven’t checked it out yet, but, I’m definitely going to!
