Why We Love Nearly Newlywed

If you haven't discovered Nearly Newlywed yet then a) where have you been? and b) you're in for a treat!

Nearly Newlywed is an innovative online bridal boutique and marketplace (with a showroom in NYC) that prides itself on sourcing and stocking gorgeous ‘gently used' and sample wedding dresses from the most coveted designers.

Think Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Jenny Packham and Claire Pettibone – all at hugely discounted prices. (Up to 90% off!)

They also have their own collection of dreamy gowns from the likes of Paolo Sebastian and Sarah Seven. Remember we brought you an exclusive first look?

Plus Nearly Newlywed have a bridal accessories closet filled to the brim with stunning adornments from sparkly sashes to heavenly headpieces.

Nearly Newlywed is perfect for brides on a tight budget who don't want to compromise on their dream wedding dress or brides who simply don't want to spend a fortune on a designer wedding dress they'll only wear once.

With Nearly Newlywed you can even sell back your dress after you've said your ‘I dos'. How cool is that?

After the dresses in the marketplace have been worn they are then professionally cleaned and inspected by the Nearly Newlywed team to ensure that they look as good as new.
