Site Review: Couture Wedding Dress Steals

May 22, 2006 by shefindsapril

Finally – an independent source outside the Wedding Industrial Complex to find real deals on pre-owned wedding dresses. Having been a “bride-to-be” for a little while now, I find myself at once fascinated and repelled by the whole money-sucking industry that has sprung up around what is a sacred, personal day in a couple’s life together. Don’t get me wrong, I salivate over bridal porn as much as the next princess. Trust me, I’m all about having the fairytale dress on my big day. The question is, do I really want to shell out the equivalent of a 3-week luxury honeymoon in Europe for something I’ll wear for about 5 hours? According to preownedweddingdresses.com, that means a “used” dress has been “used” for all of about 300 minutes. At that rate, the Melissa Sweet ensemble I’ve been oogling will run me 20 bucks a minute! Hmmm. Alternatively, I can still dress like a princess, spend half the money, and save the rest to squander on monogrammed napkins.

This site has an extensive and quality selection of gorgeous dresses from first-rate designers like Vera Wang and Monique Lhuillier. Dresses are listed, thankfully, by the seller’s street size and not their “wedding” dress size which in my experience can only be calculated with an abacus and a shot of tequila. Have a ball in fancy salons playing dress up, figure out what styles you love, and then snag one for half off or more at preownedweddingdresses.com. They don’t call us Bridezillas for nothing.

imageThis gorgeous Vera Wang Gathered Strapless Mermaid Dress is available on the site now for $3500 – nearly half the orginal price. Someone snap it up!
