Preowned Wedding Dresses
In the Philippines, December and January are the most popular months for weddings although many women still would like to be a "June bride." Anybody who has been through planning a wedding will agree that such brings a lot of stress and of course, expenses.
One of the most significant expenses on any bride's list would be her wedding gown. Most brides would opt to have their gowns made-to-order from popular, well-known designers while some would opt for more low-key gown makers who may not be as popular but can create a beautiful gown as well.
One thing which brides nowadays may wish to consider would be going for preowned wedding dresses. This is a practical thing since you will only wear your wedding gown for a few hours. After that, it's off to the closet -- never to be seen again and left there to gather dust -- with you hoping that your daughter will want to wear your wedding gown. Most likely though, she won't want to.
Brides, nowadays, can visit www.preownedweddingdresses.com This site allows individuals to buy and/or sell new, sample, and used wedding gowns. Being preowned (some sort of ukay ukay for wedding gowns, as we would say here in the Philippines), the gowns are sold at only a fraction of the original price. There are designer gowns from Monique Lhuiller, Vera Wang, and the like. You can check out the gowns by size and by price. You can subscribe to a mailing list and if you happen to be the mother of the bride or the groom, they also have gowns and dresses for you.
Filipinos may not be big on using preowned wedding dresses. We always wonder about the owner of the gown and what the story behind the gown would be. Still, it may be good to check out the site if only to get ideas for the designs of your dream wedding gown.[By Angelica Viloria | Thursday, January 18, 2007]
