If I could find a used dress that I loved and it was in great shape, I wouldn’t even hesitate to buy it. I’m looking for any ways I can to save on our wedding. The way I see it, if the dress was worn for 5 hours without any mishaps, its still virtually brand new. Get it cleaned and it will be perfect for a fraction of the cost.

I’d definitely wear a sample or used wedding dress if it was in good enough condition and if I got a major discount on it.  When I was dress shopping, however, samples were only about 10% off, except for discontinued dresses, which were 50% off. I went to like 10 dress stores and it was the same everywhere!

I bought a sample wedding dress.  I loved that I only paid 1/3 of the original price.  I wouldn’t have been able to purchase it at full price.

I bought a sample wedding dress at 30% off. It was a no-brainer for me: I saved several hundred dollars and no one will ever know!

My dress was a sample that didn’t appear to ever have been worn.  As far as used is concerned, I wouldn’t do it unless I could see the dress first.  The “used” dress websites have a lot of brand new dresses on them.

@ellar:definetly! my dress is a sample and it was SO much less exepensive. IF you add alteration, dry cleaning and having it pressed into the cost its STILL sooo much less expensive than retail. Plus no one has to know it was a sample ; )

My dress was used, and has now been sold so yet a third bride can use it.  NotFroofy’s was a sample.  As far as I’m concerned, any way to bring down the ridiculous prices of a dress for just one day is a good thing, along with being environmentally friendly.

If I found one I loved, in good condition, I’d for sure wear a used dress.

I got my sample dress for $100. Totally worth it as it was originally $1500.
