Buying something used or second hand thing will really need an accuracy. We have to make sure that it is still in a good condition. If there are some damages on it, at least they can be fixed. The same way must be done when purchasing a used or secondhand wedding dress. There are few things that must be considered well.
We have to make sure that some things like rips, pulls, tears and other sewable damages are easily fixed. If we find discolorations and stains, make sure that they can be removed easily. If we cannot remove them, it is important to make sure that they in a location that won’t be seen. But if you are not sure that you or your dry cleaner can remove the stain, you’d better pass on the gown.
Negotiation is importantly needed. If you find damage on the dress you may be able to haggle. And if you are sure it can be repaired, you can begin the negotiations for a lower price. You may buy used wedding dresses in a larger size if you are really sure that they fit properly when you try them on. And it is a better idea to buy a gown that can be altered down to your size than to buy one that is too small. Almost many shops selling second hand wedding dresses don’t offer alterations, you may wait until six weeks to a month before your wedding before making changes to your gown. This way will help you if you gain weight or lose weight, you will not have make changes to the dress again.
You don’t have to feel shy to wear a second hand wedding dress, no one will ever have to know unless you tell people.
