Once Wed

I fully intend to wear my wedding dress again (on every anniversary while I sit on my couch and eat chocolate and drink champagne), but I have toyed with the idea of selling it. Every time I want new furniture for the house I think, "Ok. Now realistically, am I ever going to fit in this thing again?" I keep it as motivation to stay at my wedding weight (though it's nine months later and clearly that logic didn't work). I don't have any grandiose ideas of one day having a daughter who wears my dress. If I have a daughter and if she chooses to get hitched one day, I want her to have the thrilling experience of picking out her own dream dress. This is where Once Wed comes into play. It's a beautifully-designed site for brides to sell their previously - and new! - worn wedding dresses.


Hint: Once Wed is also a great way to find out what designer gowns really cost. Look for the details on what the brides originally paid for their gowns.

The site also features photographs from real weddings. Thryn and Gabe's wedding from just a week ago is my FAVORITE!! Sigh...



UPDATE: Do you love these photos too? Well then, check out Thryn and Gabe's Flickr set for images of the entire wedding. There are a ton! Also, visit Thryn's blog for fantastic eco-friendly finds.
