I’d be up for it if the price was right.

Absolutely! I’m with beekiss2–if the price was right!  I was actually looking at preowned dresses during my dress search.

@lillikins611:I would not but I may be the minority. If you have various styles, well known designers and low prices…..sounds like a good business venture to me! Good luck.

I just ordered my brand new gown yesterday (!!!!), but I tried to buy it used.  I called a couple consignment shops in the area to see if they had the one I wanted.  If they had, I would have bought it from them.  I could have just bought it off Ebay, but I was too nervous to buy it sight unseen.

ok, i’m having a VERY simple wedding, and it’s really cheap.  i’m not having any bridal showers, we were never registered anywhere, we’re not asking for gifts.  we’re having a small wedding.  i didn’t even have an engagment me, but to ME (can’t speak for anyone else) the dress was the one thing i wanted for ME.  i wanted my own, new dress.  maybe i’m bad for feeling that way, but to me it was the one thing i had to have, the one thing that’s important to me.  so, no, i wouldn’t buy a pre-owned dress personally, but i’m sure a lot of women would.

I would.  Why not?  I mean worn for one full day plus several hours for fittings, if they are cleaned and not damaged, sure.

i definitely would, not all of us can afford our dream dress, once the price is right and the dress is in good condition i dont see what would stop me:)

absolutely!  I looked for mine pre-owned, but didn’t find too much of a price difference 🙁

I totally would! I looked at several before I bought the one I have now. And I’m planning to sell it afterward so I hope other people feel the same, lol.

I did!  🙂  I loved it and the price I paid.  It was well worth it and I can’t see buying a new one now.

I definitely would wear a preowned gown! In fact I’ll be looking for one when the time comes to get my dress!

I also looked for a preowned, but could not find the dress I wanted.
