I was just reading a post/voted in a poll, regarding pre-loved wedding dresses. I voted ‘yes, I would consider wearing a pre-loved dress.’ I was interested reading everyone’s for and against comments.
My question is, are there any Bee’s out there who DID have a pre-loved wedding dress but ended up regretting that they didn’t buy a new one.

I bought a used dress, and it was the best decision! I couldn’t dream of wasting thousands on this dress new. It just seemed so silly to me! I get to look like a million bucks AND have money left to spend. It was a win-win for me!

I couldn’t be happier, my dream dress at 1/3rd – 1/4th the original cost. I haven’t worn it on my big day yet (it does need to be taken out a bit at the bust but I’ve also lost weight since this pic)

@lovelyduckie: WOW that dress is spectacular. I got mine custom made on etsy and saved a lot of money that way. But that’s got to be one of the most beautiful dresses I’ve ever seen! What’s the name of it? Also what’s the sticker price and what did you pay for it?

@katehh08: Aria is the name and it’s by Rivini. After some research I’ve confirmed that the sticker price is at least between $5,000 and $6,000 if the bride had it pre-ordered prior to release, so I made my offer with that value in mind. But for some reason many of the brides listing it for sale (including the one I purchased from) had the original price listed as $8,000 paid. Which one is accurate? Not really sure, but that $8,000 paid number seems a bit too high to me (maybe some brides were doing a bit of padding on the price to make it seem like a better deal?). Especially since I saw a bride with an ~$5,000 budget trying it on during a show. I figured as long as I kept the lowest possible MSRP in mind it would work out fine.
The one I got is actually brand new (tags and everything) and I got it for $2,000. I plan on re-selling it for as low as half of what I paid. If it doesn’t even sell at that price, it’s unlikely I’d go any lower and I’d preserve and keep it just for the gorgeous lace possibilities for the future.
