Should I Consider a Second Hand Wedding Dress?

Have You Considered Buying A Second Hand Wedding Dress?



Have you ever borrowed a dress from a friend or family member? Then you have worn a second hand dress. All second hand means is that it was worn by someone else. Consignment shops and thrift stores are a great place to get a second hand dress. If you require a special size, it may be best to actually go to the store to try it on verses ordering online.

The Selection

At a second hand shop you can find some amazing fashion. There are all different types and styles of dresses. The selection is quite vast. Some of the consignment shops carry some very nice barely worn high end dresses that are extremely affordable. It is also a great place to go for retro type fashion dresses from the 1960’s and 70’s. Since styles are circular, some of these style dresses will last for many years to come. There may only be a small selection of dresses that are on current trend, and there will be a few from the past few fashion seasons as well. If you are a little more creative in your fashion, a second hand dress may be exactly what you need.

The Occasion

Second hand wedding dresses are good for every occasion just like brand new dresses, even your wedding! That is apparent by the many second hand wedding dress shops. Not everyone can afford an expensive wedding dress, so a second hand wedding dress is exactly what they need. You can really get a good quality dress. They are cleaned, not stained, and don’t have odors like cigarette smoke or pets. It is the same premise when it comes to evening gowns. You may not want to spend a lot of money on a custom made or bought gown for one night. A second hand dress may be your solution.

You should definitely consider a second hand dress. At least take a look out there and see what you can find. If you don’t see anything, then go the normal route of purchasing something new. Either way, it is a new dress for you, and who doesn’t love a new dress?
