Shopping for a wedding gown can be exhausting, and even more expensive, but I think the process just got a little easier. Nearly Newlywed is an amazing online boutique that carries a beautifully curated selection of nearly new designer gowns (think Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta), that they sell for a fraction of the original price. Boutique owner, Jacqueline Sheller Courtney, describes it as the “borrow, alter, send back or sometimes keep” experience, and it really is as simple as that.
It might seem crazy to buy a designer wedding dress online, but Nearly Newlywed makes it totally risk-free with free shipping and a five-day return policy. So if you try a dress and it doesn’t suit your fancy, you can just send it back! Or, if you love it, wear it on your wedding day with the option of selling it back – how awesome is that?!
If your wedding has come and gone, or if you’re like me and decided to wear an entirely different wedding gown than you originally planned, consider submitting your dress for consignment at Nearly Newlywed. Once you’ve agreed on a selling price, just send them your dress and they take care of the rest. Easy peasy!
And now for the really fun part! Nearly Newlywed is giving one Snippet & Ink reader a $250 gift certificate toward the purchase of a wedding or party dress. To enter, just leave a comment on this post with the Nearly Newlywed dress that you love most. You have until Monday, May 21st, at 5:00 PDT to leave a comment. The randomly selected winner will be notified by email. Happy dress hunting!
