Now that it is finally yard sale season, (yeah!!), it is a great time to look for décor. Think outside of the box and look for things that are not normal “wedding decorations.” They can even be repurposed as décor in your new home.
Yes it is possible to get a beautiful bridal look without breaking the budget. That is why I decided to open my bridal consignment shop. I have shopped in consignment stores for years. Admittedly some are better than others when it comes to the selection and condition the clothes. In the right store you can even get brand new with tags pieces.
I absolutely love it when brides find their dream dress. I had a bride just recently who came in and was “just looking”. As soon as I put on the veil she knew. She cried, her friend cried and I got chills. It was awesome.
Brand new with tags David’s Bridal style # V9263. Satin corset ball gown with beaded lace appliques, organza pick-up skirt, and lace-up back. Original price $599. At my consignment boutique $450.
Matching veil and tiara are also available.
It has been said that I can take just about everything and relate it to weddings. Well in this case it really may be true. I was on Pinterest the other day and I saw this Easter arrangement, and I immediately thought wedding centerpiece for Spring. I actually find that quite a few of the things I pin to my boards come from looking at things other than weddings.
I am addicted to wedding magazines. 🙂 So when I found a new one I was very excited. Though I think I should start my own publication. Garage Sale and Thrift Store Weddings, mmmmm………
As I sit here at my desk I have a great view of all the new and once loved gowns I have here in the shop. It is like Christmas each time I get a new one in. I am always amazed at the different styles. When I think I have a favorite, another new one comes in. I truly love it when a bride finds a dress that they can see themselves getting married in. Being the only WNY Bridal Consignment Shop in the area, means that I get inventory from all around the area from all kinds of designers. I cannot wait until the next bride comes in to find her gown……
Here is one of my favorite looks, which is a brand new gown from Alfred Angelo. I also happen to have a matching tiara.
