You Can Buy and Sell a Wedding Gown Like The One Pictured Here Through a Wedding Gown Consignment Web Site.
Sometimes I come across a resource for brides-to-be that I just can’t keep to myself. One of these happens to be SmartBrideBoutique.com! If you're planning your wedding on a budget, you might want to consider buying your gown on consignment and save some money...sometimes a lot of money.
It’s important to realize that with a little legwork and searching, you don’t have to sacrifice the things you wanted most on your wedding day, and sites like Smart Bride Boutique will allow you to get everything you wanted in a budget wedding, and maybe more!
Used Wedding Dresses for Sale
The best part about this site is undoubtedly the wedding gown consignment feature. Listings of wedding gowns and bridesmaids’ dresses for sale have been posted by countless wedding party members wanting a little bit of their money back on their dresses. Most of these have only been worn once and for a few hours, so they may be in near mint condition - or not.
More Than Wedding Dresses
SmartBrideBoutique.com also has categories of veils, shoes, jewelry and decorations for sale, so you could feasibly plan your entire budget wedding outfit from used, discounted items on the site! Some are used items,and some are new.
Buying and Selling Locally
SmartBrideBoutique.com recommends buying and selling locally to make it easier to get e dress with the right fit. When buying locally, you can be sure of the fit and eliminate your shipping costs. You would be able to find the seller and try on the dress before buying. See my recent article on buying Consignment Shop wedding dresses for some ideas that might help you buy or sell a wedding gown on consignment.
Sometimes buying locally is not possible, like when you find your $2,000 perfect dress priced for $1,000 offered across the county (50% off the retail price is not uncommon). You will incur a little shipping costs so be sure to factor that into your plans.
The Smart Bride Boutique does not have any local listing for consignment wedding dresses in Birmingham, Alabama, at least not when I wrote this article. But there are still consignment wedding dresses available at great prices. But this web site has a lot to offer and I expect more brides will be using this to buy and sell their wedding dresses in Birmingham, Alabama.
The Smart Bride Boutique Blog Has Some Good Ideas, Too
The site blog is also incredibly useful and full of tips supplied by other creative brides that want to share their knowledge. From food to cakes to decorations to eco-friendly options to groomsmen gift ideas, this blog is just bursting with great ideas that could totally revolutionize your wedding and free up your budget.
So much information might seem a little daunting, but Smart Bride Boutique allows you to sign in and save your searches. Even better are the contests and deals that are offered by the many sponsors. What better way to save money on your wedding than by winning a prize package or a honeymoon? If you consider yourself a smart, savvy bride, make sure to check out SmartBrideBoutique.com.
And by the way, I have no interest in this web site of any type...this is an unbiased recommendation.
