New Wedding Dresses vs. Pre-Owned Wedding Dresses

Wedding Dresses at a bridal salonEvery bride-to-be dreams about the perfect dress for her wedding. With countless trips to the bridal salon and all the stress that goes with the wedding; brides are adamant to find their perfect wedding dress for their most special day. Most dresses range typically anywhere from 500 to 7, 000 dollars, which is a wide range and doesn’t suit all brides, especially for the budget-conscious brides. So what does a budget-conscious bride do? To save money, brides are buying pre-owned wedding dresses which are available online and in some bridal salons. These pre-owned dresses cost less than new wedding dresses because they are pre-owned, but the advantage to buying a pre-owned wedding dress is you can get a designer wedding dress for almost half the price! The question is will a budget-conscious bride be willing to wear a wedding dress that has been worn previously? Some brides opt out from buying pre-owned wedding dresses because they believe that someone else’s, like the previous wearers energy will be on the wedding dress and that it may cause bad luck. Another thing to think about if you’re thinking about buying a pre-owned wedding dress, especially online is that you need to find a professional seamstress on your own to alter the dress. It’s not easy to find professional seamstresses who specialize in wedding dresses and the other part is that you have to pay them, which means you need to add that to your budget in services.  For new never-worn wedding dresses, you don’t need to worry about anyone else’s energy being transferred if you believe in that; but it comes with a higher price tag! You can try to buy a new wedding dress when they are on sale, but that doesn’t happen often or with every dress, which makes the chances of finding “the dress” slim for you. If you’re the type of bride that wants to pass down your wedding dress as a keepsake, then you should definitely go with buying a new wedding dress. For whatever type of bride you are, if you take the time and do the necessary research and weigh your options, you will find the perfect dress for you-promise!
