Dress by Inbal Dror
The number of brides walking down the aisle in a pre-owned gown is only on the up + up, and the best part is that no one can tell the difference! These dresses are likely worn for a handful of hours, dry-cleaned and stored away in perfect condition never to be seen again. Meanwhile, brides-to-be are sacrificing flowers and photography and whatever else it might be (did someone say dream gelato truck?) for the sake of donning a dress they’ve pinned a bajillion times already. We’re no expert, but it seems like it’s a no-brainer on both sides of the bargain.

Dresses are easily searchable using filters like size, budget, length, sleeve and neckline (all bookmarkable too on your watchlist). Not to mention you can communicate with the seller while your contact details remain private. Buyers have already purchased over $10mil USD worth of dresses through Still White, which may have caught us off guard if it wasn’t for the fact we know they carry top designers such as Maggie Sottero, Pronovias, Allure, Vera Wang, Grace Loves Lace, Anna Campbell and more. 30,000+ dresses in fact!
Dress by Made with Love
Dress by Rue de Seine
Because it took us no time to fall down the rabbit hole of the fab dresses that are available, we’re sharing some of our favorites below:
Okay so this Lee Grebenau stunner has us SHOOK. From the celestial vibes and flowy cape to the tasteful hand-beading and ruffled train, we’d propose to the gown itself. This gown retails around $12000, and was sold for a fraction of that!
Sweet Adella style from Carol Hannah with spaghetti straps and a stylish v-neck. Totally femme and calling our names. Best part? It’s still available!
My gosh we’re blown away by this coppery flower gem from One Day Bridal. Soft pink undertones and totally unique, it just screams boho bride.
Beautiful loopy tulle sleeves in this Inbal Dror number with intricate ivory georgette detailing!
Well boho is a given here, so we think this cotton embroidered wedding dress from Rue de Seine can only be described as “youthful gypsy!”
So let’s put what we’ve learned into a haiku: Designer dresses, Just barely off the runway, Fraction of the cost. If you’re aching to see more of these killer wedding gowns available online, start your search at Still White here.
