We have a HUGE selection of dresses! One comment I always get is “I had NO idea you had so much!!! Prices range from about $300 and are capped at $1250.
Volume/Composition: It’s true, we have about 600 dresses, about two-thirds are previously loved, and one-third are donated by our generous partners. FYI… “Donated” does not mean “used”. Donated means people with great big hearts offering something without a price. Our used dresses come from brides who donate their gowns with amazingly huge doses of great karma, and they actually sell faster! They’ve been proven worthy with a trip down the aisle, and are ready for another. Many come with notes passing on good wishes for you and your day.
Designers: We have everything from Alfred Angelo to the occasional Vera Wang. You will frequently see dresses by Allure, Sincerity, Bridalane, Essence of Australia, Maggie Sottero, Paloma Blanca, Mikaella, Sophia Tolli, Venus, Alfred Sung, DaVinci, etc. The retail value of the dresses ranges from several hundred up to about $8000-$10,000.
Pricing: The retail value of the dresses ranges from several hundred dollars up to about $8000-$10,000. Here, they are priced at approximately 1/2 the retail value or capped at $1250. Most destination dresses average about $300, typical polyester wedding gowns are about $600, and our collection of high end silks averages about $1000.
How current are they? Brand new dresses are often donated from salons once they are discontinued each year. You are very unlikely to find the current year’s dresses that are in magazines and being sold for full retail price in salons for obvious reasons… salons need to make a living too!!! Used dresses are often from the previous year’s collection as well.
We regularly go through and refresh our stock to make sure it’s not too old. Dresses over 5 years of age are re-donated to other charitable organizations.
Keep an eye on our blog for the latest arrivals… we don’t have an online inventory because it changes too quickly, but we do try to post new additions when photos are available.
Just know… we are not running out of dresses. Space… yes… dresses… nope! Seriously, if you can’t find one here that you will love, I’d be very surprised!
