Preowned Wedding Dress Roundup 02/22/12

If you don’t love great deals quite enough to do the whole sample sale thing this weekend at Blush Bridal, we’ve got some less-stress discount gowns in this week’s preowned wedding dress roundup.

1. Mermaid Gown, $750 OBO/original price not listed

You can’t go wrong with the mermaid shape (it flatters pretty much every body type), and this dress adds in raw silk, which photographs beautifully, and on-trend pop of color in the pink sash (that you can remove if you’re more traditional).

2. Lazaro 3866, $2,500/originally $5,500

Perfect if you’re aiming for over-the-top vintage romance on your big day. Not the cheapest used wedding dress, but still a bargain when you consider that the bride only wore it for a couple hours at the reception and never altered it.

3. Paloma Blanca 4106, $1,300/original price not listed

Another un-altered gown and another mermaid shape. This one, however, adds more detailing in the form of ruching, a ruffle, and a floral accent. We think it would pair prettily with a spring wedding.

4. Lazaro 3000, $2,400/original price not listed (labeled as over 50% off)

Let’s just say it all together: Stunning. Of course, we’re suckers for beaded floral skirts and tulle (when done right) and this one has a Monique Lhuillier feel to it. The bride purchased it locally at Bisou Bridal, but you’re on your own if you want a belt since she didn’t buy the matching one.

5. Vera Wang for David’s Bridal, $600 OBO/originally $780

Great for all you Grecian goddesses out there (or brides who simply want to be that on their wedding day). This gown actually hasn’t been used for a wedding but for a graduation, and it comes with a matching white sash and a Vera Wang champagne flower belt. Since it has a charmeuse lining, you’re guaranteed to be comfortable on the big day…provided you fit a size two.
