Once-used bridal dress

Off late, there has been a tendency amongst the brides to settle down for 'once-used' or 'sparingly- used' bridal dress costing around 25% to 50% of a new dress. Web sites like preownedweddingdress.com offer once-used wedding dress for USD 600 which costs USD 2500 as a new dress.

Times of India reports that brides do feel that buying a new dress costs them a fortune and they opt for once-used dress as there is no compromise on the quality of the dress. Even designer dream dresses are available for a song in once-used condition! There is a lot of saving in money which otherwise could be better utilised for buying other important household appliances & gadgets for the couple. This concept is eco-friendly as used dress amounts to recycling without any fresh production.

This concept is not similar to the purchase of secondhand commodities like shoes, bags, etc., wherein the commodity has been put to use for a long duration having undergone deterioration in quality as well.

Used bridal dress appears to be the future trend; it is the best solution under the present economic slowdown around the globe. It may get stronger in the years to come with several agencies and web sites taking a plunge into this business.
