When it comes to buying a wedding dress, brides tend to go with a long list of things — long, short, traditional, or non-traditional — and added to the expenses of the ceremony and honeymoon, the budget might seem small. Second-hand wedding dresses are a sustainable and cheaper option if you’re tightening your costs for your dream day.

Recently, the option of having a second-hand wedding dress has increased among brides, especially among the conscious ones. And what I mean by consciousness here can be not only about environmental concerns but also regarding prices.

Often cheaper than a rented gown, second-hand options can offer up to 70% off the original retail price. If you’re considering the possibility, let’s check the best options, prices, and place for a vintage wedding gown.
