Say Yes for Less

PW-dress-rackYour wedding gown is one of the most important parts of your wedding day. You’ve probably been dreaming about it and all of its little details since you were a little girl. Unfortunately with the perfect wedding gown often comes a not-so-perfect price tag. Your wedding dress is something that you will most likely only wear once, and we understand that it can be tough to justify spending 10% of your entire budget on just the gown. Wedding gown rental is a popular trend that can help reduce the cost, but you’ll have to return your dream dress eventually.

Did you know that you can purchase pre-owned wedding gowns? A pre-owned wedding dress is a gown that has already been worn by another bride for her wedding day, but the gown has few flaws and can be worn again after a cleaning and some tweaks. These wedding gowns are often listed at deep discounts, allowing you to live out your fairytale dreams at a much more affordable cost. Secondhand wedding gowns are a great option for brides who are looking for that dream designer gown at a lower price point. You can also find pre-owned wedding dresses that have never been worn and still have the tags on them. These dresses are usually the result of brides who found another dress they loved more and were not able to return the gown to the store.

Another great option are sample wedding gowns. What are sample wedding gowns?Wedding gown manufacturers require retailers to buy a minimum number of gowns to be used as showroom items, also known as “samples”. These gowns come in a variety of sizes and may have been tried on several times or not at all depending on the store. These gowns have not been worn in a wedding or altered but they may have some small imperfections, which is why stores are able to offer them at discounted prices.

At Something Old, Something New Bridal we offer our brides a great selection of discounted designer sample and pre-owned wedding gowns at affordable prices. Our view is that no matter the budget, all brides should experience the thrill of finding their dream gown. All of our dresses are priced under $1,500. Come check our selection of beautiful gowns!
