helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank


sponsored post is a listing service connecting buyers and sellers of new, sample and used wedding dresses, since 2004. You could find your dream dress for $1000s less than you'd pay new! Or, if you've already married and worn your dream dress, consider selling it on the site to help a new bride-to-be who wants to feel like a princess on her big day! Using a site like is a great way to be Budget-Savvy! 🙂

When it comes to saving money on your big day, one thing that is always a struggle is the dress. Yes, it's something you will only wear for a few hours on one day, so it's hard to shell out big bucks for that dress. But there's also the emotional aspect, where you want to remember feeling your most beautiful in a dress that fit the occasion and looks stunning on you! But don't you wish you could find that designer gown at a lower price? Well, I'm happy to tell you that you can!

The site boasts over 4600 designer dresses- they are easily searchable by tons of different criteria such as by designer, keyword, size, price, neckline, silhouette, location, condition – new/used/sample! They have even implemented New Dress Alerts where you can sign up to get an instant email when a dress is added to the site. You can sign up by any combination of designer, style and size. For example:

by designer (ie all Vera Wangs),
designer + size (ie all Vera Wangs, Size 8)
designer + style (ie all Vera Wang Audreys)
designer +style+size (ie Vera Wang Audrey, Size 8).

Another great feature is being able to search by location! Search for your dress using your zip/postal code. You can search 25, 50, or 100 mile radius of the code you enter, which could be great if you could meet with the seller and possibly try on the dress before buying! It could also save you on shipping costs! has helped thousands of brides successfully sell their gowns. In fact, a June 2009 Wall Street Journal article independently reviewed with other dress resale sites and concluded that “ provided the most qualified buyers quickly.” Go see for yourself- and be sure to check out their testimonials page where they have TONS of fab reviews! is a sponsor of The Budget Savvy Bride

    My dress arrived yesterday from a seller on I cannot recommend it enough. My dress would have cost over 3000 if I got it from a boutique. I got it for 1700 and it had never been worn, the tags are still on it. My advice is to use an escrow service to make sure the seller is legit.
