Hey Bees! I was just curious if anyone has every bought a used wedding dress from a site, such as preownedweddindresses.com I found a great dress and have emailed the seller (they haven’t gotten back with me yet) but I am not sure if that is such a great thing to do..any advice? O, and by the way the dress I am looking at is Jim Hjelm 8850 if anyone knows of anyone that is selling it! Thanks!

I bought mine at oncewed.com, and it was also a Jim Hjelm. I would definitely do it again. There is an “escrow” system so that you can deposit your payment and then release it to the seller if the dress arrives in advertised condition and you decide to purchase. I got mine in the mail, went straight to the tailor and took 3 days to decide i wanted it, so pretty risk free.
It is in beautiful condition, and i had it tailored and saved about $2000. yay!

i have just purchased a dress from a pre-owned site. I didn’t buy it outright tho. i arranged to visit the lady and try the dress on before committing. was a five hr drive each way but so worth it cos the dress is gorgeous and i just saved myself over a grand. she’d had it dry cleaned too and you’d never know it had been worn before.
Hope this helps a little, i wouldn’t have purchased it if I couldn’t have tried it on and inspected it first.
