share this:

There’s a lot to get excited about as we creep back into normalcy, like the return of WEDDING SEASON! Coming back to the things we know and love doesn’t have to be exactly how it was before, it can be better. Weddings have a tendency to be pretty wasteful, like the bridesmaid dress you wore for two hours or that cocktail number you bought for 2020. We love dressing up for big events but not at the expense of the planet. So why not thrift your next wedding season look instead? Whether you’re a bride, bridesmaid, or a wedding guest, this guide will have major thrifty inspo for you with looks so cute you’ll want to wear ‘em again and again. 

1. Pre-Wedding Festivities

If you’re attending an engagement party, rehearsal dinner or bridal shower chances are whatever new item you shop for is going to lead to a one-time wear sitch. Thrift a midi dress instead that is chic and flattering to the body. For an effortless search for classier styles use our filters! Select the silk filter for example to find midis that can easily be dressed up or down. Pair with a dainty heel, a clutch that functions as your statement piece, and you’re ready to go.  

2. Bachelorette Party

The wedding day is quite literally around the corner at this point, but this night is all about FUN and not taking yourself too seriously. Try a shorter dress for size! Thrift a mini cocktail dress that you could see yourself wearing again on a night out. Play with sleeve length or go sleeveless. Make sure you find one with a flattering neckline that allows for fun jewelry! You can’t forget shoes. Pair this look with a decadent secondhand heel that can last you through the night without causing your feet to suffer (you’ll most likely be wearing heels for even longer the next day). Hot tip: Bring emergency flats too! No one wants to spend the night thinking about how much their feet hurt.

Of course you should thrift your wedding dress! We’re ditching any and all taboos surrounding secondhand wedding dresses because you can look just as incredible while saving loads of money that can be spend on other event needs. Use the formal and cocktail dress filters to search for white dresses as you make your way down the aisle.

Wedding guest and bridesmaid filters, your time has come! Select these filters and shop endless pages of dresses that are perfect for the big day. You’d be surprised by the variation of party dress styles available secondhand. You save sooo much money too, which means you can buy more without breaking the bank! Let the length do all the work for you and shop maxi styles that elongate the body.
