Craigslist Bridal

Okay. I get that my wedding is, like, in forever. Or really just about 15 months. But Kenny and I are working with a budget, so I am already shopping around for decor. Craigslist has become my friend. I missed out on some great candelabras yesterday. Damn. Anyway, while searching, I have stumbled upon some amazing wedding dresses. Some as low as $100. But a used dress? I am just not sure. But some of these are just too good to pass up.

For instance,

"BEAUTIFUL!-------- Custom made dress. Worn for a short time, in excellent condition."

Priced at $100.00

Or perhaps,

"Classic Princess Wedding Dress."

Originally purchased for over $1000.00. Priced at $300.00

How ever does one pass up such a glorious dress like this? I mean, just look at that heart cut-out in the back.

And if that one is a little too much, there is always this one.

A "beautiful" dress "purchased from Davids bridal (still has tag) and was never worn. Im pricing it low for a quick sell also because it will probably need to be cleaned just because it hung in a close for a while. But the dress is in perfect shape with no stains."

I don't know. What do you guys think?

I ordered a black sash from Target wedding, I never ended up using it...but they sent me a wedding dress too, that I hadn't paid for!!!! ANd it was a sz. 16!!!!! (My actual wedding dress was a 6), and I've tried selling the thing on eBay for $10 and no one will buy it. I think I finally gave it to the Salvation Army. I couldn't even return it to Target because it wasn't on my bill :(

I didn't know you were going for an 80's themed wedding.

Don't forget to pick up a crimper for your hair.

I think the only way you should buy a dress from Craigs List is if that is also where you found your husband....

Erin said...

TOTALLY go for that heart cut out...I mean you do you know how hard it is to find a dress with a good cut out theese days?!?!

Sheri said...

HAHAHAHA! I can so see you in all of those. LMAO Now, making brides maids find their dresses on CL would top that.

Oh Sheri, don't be a snob. If Craigslist is good enough for me, then it is good enough for you!

I am trying to sell a wedding dress on Craiglist for a friend. Brand new and CURRENT and I looked at the ones advertised and laughed my butt off.
