Hello all! I am opening a consignment shop for bridal gowns and accessories and I am wondering how many girls would buy a preowned wedding gown. They will be cleaned and in near perfect condition. Give me your thoughts!

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.

Absolutely. In a heartbeat.

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.
