By the title of today’s blog post, I guess you know what I am going to be talking about. Well, yes it’s true. I did buy my wedding dress on Poshmark. I thought I would talk a little bit about this since my wedding is in less than a month (WOW).
I didn’t really know what I wanted, but I had sort of an idea. I knew I didn’t want anything strapless. I knew I wanted something that wasn’t WHITE, but more of a neutral tannish color. I didn’t want it to be too bright I just wanted it to be a little bit more subtle. I wanted to wait until we decided where we were going to get married before picking my dress because the venue was going to change the kind of dress I decided to go with. We finally picked the beach so I felt like I could go ahead with my decision.
I went to a bridal store in my city and tried on so many different dresses and styles. It was crazy how many different wedding dresses there are to choose from and how only one is really for you. It’s kind of like finding someone to marry. There are so many options, but really only one person makes you feel happy, safe, and want to spend the rest of your life with them. I tried on a bunch of dresses and found one I really liked, but there was something that I wanted to change about it so I knew it wasn’t for me. I scoured the Poshmark app and found one I fell in love with. I won’t be showing you because my boyfriend looks at my blog so he would see what it looks like (I will be sharing photos after the wedding).
I decided to pull the trigger and just buy the dress. I LOVED it and I knew that I would love it even more in person. I got a really good deal (thank you Poshmark) and when it arrived I loved it even more than I did online. I was beautiful and it fit my occasion and me perfectly. Well, my style not my body. I had to get a lot taken off the bottom and I had to get the bust altered, but in the end, I still paid less than half of what I would’ve paid retail for it.
It’s from the brand BHLDN which is Anthropologie’s bridal line and I thought I would share some beautiful dresses I found on Poshmark in case any of you are getting married or just want to dream about the day to come.
This is a size 12. This is very similar to the shape of my dress, but the design is different.
Size 4 . This would be perfect for a Church wedding or a wedding that is a little bit fancier. Really shows off your curves!
Size 6 . This dress has beautiful detail and would be perfect for an outdoor wedding.
Size 4. I am obsessed with this. I love a long sleeved dress and this one is so pretty. I was going to get two dresses originally because I am having a destination wedding and a receptions back home and I wanted to go with a style like this for the party back home!
Size 12. This would be perfect to change into during the reception! You are going to be dancing and moving around a lot so you will want something thats not as heavy!
Size 10. This would be perfect if you were having your wedding in a garden! The floral details would be perfect with a garden wedding!
Size 4. This would be perfect for a Church wedding. It is modest, but has a beautiful open back detail! It is very ornate and has a lot of detail to it!
Size 14 . This is also similar to my dress in the top part. It is very intricate and elegant. This would be perfect for any occasion really!
I hope you guys liked reading this post! I hope it gives you ideas that you can find beautiful secondhand wedding dresses and you dont have to spend THOUSANDS of dollars on a dress that you will wear once! It is a special moment, but you will only wear it one time.
