What You Need to Know When Buying a Pre-owned Wedding Dress

Many brides decide to buy a pre-owned/pre-worn wedding dress as it can save you a lot of money, and since wedding dresses are usually worn only once many dresses are still considered brand new and in great conditions.

Here are some tips to help you out:

Ask the seller about the dress condition, was it dry cleaned? How was it preserved? If the dress was not dry cleaned you can ask the seller to take it for you or you can take it yourself to make sure your dress is spotless.

Ask if the dress was altered to fit the previous bride, many wedding dresses are altered to fit the bride’s body type.

If you’re buying your dress online, make sure you see the dress first or make sure that you really trust the vendor or website before paying for it, and always ask about the return policy. Read our article “How to Buy Your Wedding Dress Online”.
