Summer is coming, lovelies, we can feel it. We can see it in our dress choices for today’s preowned wedding dress roundup too, that craving for all things light and soft and swirly and simply beautiful.
1. David’s Bridal KP3280, $100/originally $250
The epitome of a sweet summer wedding dress, this short gown doesn’t take itself too seriously (and would hold up to some serious heat). All over lace and a bubble hem keep things interesting without distracting too much from the garden party feel.
2. Clara Couture Custom Design, $700/originally $1,700
We can practically feel the Italian silk of this gown just by looking at it, and we think it’s one of the prettiest simple styles we’ve come across. This wedding dress has never been worn and it includes a couple rare perks: A free accessory (such as a veil) from the designer and a free fitting.
3. BHLDN 20316915 , $1,200/originally $1,700
This is bohemian done in the best possible way, with lots of light layers and an other era bodice. Not to mention plenty of silk chiffon. The dress originally featured spaghetti straps (as pictured above) but the owner had a wider strap sewn in. If you’re sold on the original look, the original straps come with the dress and could be easily reattached.
4. Vera Wang White VW351065, $750/originally $1,248
Vera Wang doing what Vera Wang does best, a tulle skirt that is downright dreamy and a lace bodice that gives a shot of high fashion to the whole affair. This size 12 gown can be taken in two sizes and hasn’t been hemmed, so it’s perfect for you glamazons.
5. Calvin Klein, $150/original price not listed
Sometimes you just don’t want to mess with simplicity and this simple silk sheath is too flattering to fuss with (the pictures really don’t do it justice). We really want someone to snatch it up and go Old Hollywood with red lipstick or maybe a Billie Holiday flower in their hair.
One note: As with anything for sale online, it’s important to buy smart. Use a trusted online money service to pay for your dress (PayPal and Escrow.com are good options) or meet the bride in person—with a friend.
