- Wedding: December 2012
I was trying to rationalize which route is better for a wedding dress- new, sample or second hand- this is the list ive come up with…
New- pros (obviously its new, clean etc) but cons $$$$$
sample- pros- no one has worn it to a wedding per se, unaltered and less $$$, but cons- despite having not been worn to a wedding it has been worn by multiple brides to be and hence usually needs some TLC, also its non refundable/exchangable!
second hand- pros- its cheapest but cons- its been worn to a wedding and may be altered…
So it leads me to my random thoughts- obviously it would be nice to get a dress for less $$$ but would you sacrifice quality for design?
Also if one was to get a sample dress- you need to pay for cleaning and repairs is it the same as second hand? if you think about it a sample= tried on multiple brides for short time vs. second hand= one bride for a day and its usually cleaned afterwards for free? I guess its making me think that samples arent so crash hot (i liked this idea initially) and either go second hand (unaltered) if your really set on expensive designer or new and get something similar…but why sample when you dont know whos worn it?
Any thoughts? which catagory does your dress come under? are theyre any pros and cons i missed?
