Olga + Daniel | Vera Wang Wedding from Marianna Zhovnirenko


Vera Wang Katherine | PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com

The thought and style behind Olga and Daniel’s wedding are stunning, with feminine details like fluffy peach florals and heart-filled decor. Sweeping views of Rome and classic marble architecture add to the the European romance of the venue. Olga made a gorgeous bride in her layered Vera Wang Katherine ballgown, which she paired perfectly with glitzy Jimmy Choos.

The Ceremony
We got engaged in November 2013 and in January 2014 decided to set the date. I spent hours researching various sources for a good date according to different calendars, including but not limited to Christian and moon calendars. Thats is how I arrived at 30th of May 2014. And then I wanted to find a location that would have nice weather at that time. Rome seemed the perfect choice. First I wanted ceremony in church, but after looking at many of them I didn’t really feel it was how I imagined it. Thats why I decided to make it more romantic and do an outside ceremony with an arch. Villa Miani had both the garden and terrace with exceptional views of Rome, so we chose the terrace. It was the perfect choice and we were very lucky with the weather (the forecast was for rain!) All the guests absolutely loved it.

The Reception
Our reception took place at the same venue, Villa Miani, which is one of the best wedding locations in Rome as they offer the villa exclusively for you, not like others, where you can only rent only part of it. It also has the best view of Rome and Vatican. Food was absolutely delicious and the service was top class, with Italian waiters that had proper old school manners and made you feel like you were at a ball in another century.

Olga’s Dress Search
I didn’t try that many dresses. I knew I wanted the best and in London it is the Vera Wang boutique and Browns Brides that have crème de la crème for brides like me. I wanted to buy a mermaid style and ended up with a ball gown. It was a difficult decision for me, but I just decided to choose a dress that not only looks nice on me, but also represents what I am and how I am.

How Olga Felt in Her Wedding Dress
Classy. Edgy. Breathtaking.

Why Olga Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I loved my day and I want someone else to enjoy the dress I worked so hard on. It will just hang in my closet and take lots of space, I just don’t see the point. I’d rather it bring joy to someone else!

Amsale | Designer Profile


Amsale

Are you an Amsale bride? Designer Amsale Aberra founded her namesake label in 1985 when she was unable to find a gown for her own wedding that suited her style. Being the 80s, she said she found everything was “overdone and overly adorned,” when she really wanted something minimal and refined. And so, Amsale (pronounced Am-sah-leh) was born.

Amsale HoustonAmsale Porter
Amsale Houston (left) | Amsale Porter (right)

Softly sophisticated and timeless is the signature Amsale look. Simplicity reigns, and the bride who wears one of the wedding dresses it certain to look effortlessly polished. The wedding dresses in the collections are not overly embellished, instead featuring asymmetrical slants, pleating and careful draping. Silhouettes tend to accentuate natural shape, but are not too form-fitting.

Amsale HudsonAmsale Delancey

Amsale gowns are uncomplicated in design, often with a single major accent that draws the eye. This could be an oversized bow, floral feature or a detailed illusion back. Unique necklines appear again and again in each season’s looks: crumb catcher and bateau styles are among the favorites. The architectural gowns appear to be simple, but are anything but — a hallmark of excellent tailoring and craftsmanship.

Materials with a beautiful soft glow such as silk faille and silk magnolia are used often, along with touches of tulle or French lace for dimension. Soft layers impart a dreamy, romantic feel. If a touch of color is what you seek, don’t worry. Amsale produces many of her gowns in soft shades such as blush pink, ivory and champagne.

Amsale KendallAmsale Jane

An Amsale gown would be perfect for a modern wedding in an art gallery, museum or loft, but in truth their simplicity makes them a wonderful fit for most venues. Chic, sophisticated brides-to-be should definitely add Amsale to the list of gowns they would like to try on. Who knows? You just might end up falling in love with one of the designer’s minimal wedding dresses.

Sonia + Andy | Monique Lhuillier Wedding from The Nickersons


Monique Lhuillier | PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com

Sonia and Andy celebrated their wedding in grand party style, complete with lawn games and wine country festivities. A gorgeous view of the rolling hills of the Okanagan surrounded by the beaming smiles of friends and family, these two looked gorgeous together; especially Sonia in that perfect Monique Lhuillier gown. One she originally bought on PreOwnedWeddingDresses herself!

The Ceremony
Our ceremony was an intimate family and friends celebration, officiated by one of our best friends. Every guest participated and had a role/contribution to the ceremony. The ceremony took place on a dock which extended out into Okanagan Lake with the stunning Okanagan Valley as a backdrop. My now husband and I were surrounded by our love and the love of the most special people in our lives in what we consider one of the most beautiful places we’ve been.

The Reception
Party time! We had homemade lawn games (corn hole, ladder golf, jumbo Jenga and croquet), booze canoe, a farm-sourced and local vineyard feast, and then dancing the night away under the stars to the high energy cover tunes of SideOne (who were probably the most complimented component of our reception). Highlight: piñata smash “cake cutting!”

Sonia’s Dress Search
I didn’t try too many dresses on. I went to three high end bridal salons in Toronto (my home town).  At the third salon I fell absolutely in love with two dresses, both completely different but stunning each in their own right. I spent a month or so going over the pros and cons of each in my head (and with my maid of honor – bless her heart) but couldn’t decide. I thought about following the trend of getting two dresses (one for the ceremony and one for pictures) but my budget would not allow it.

Over the course of three months, I went back to the salon two times trying to decide between the two options. That was when a girlfriend told me about PreOwnedWeddingDresses so I checked out the site. Wouldn’t you know that one of my beloved dresses was up there for sale! And in my size! I was thrilled! Thanks to this site I was able to find my ceremony dress for a fraction of the price (although it looked like a million bucks). It allowed me to get both of my dream dresses but still within my budget.

How Sonia Felt in Her Wedding Dress

Dress #2 – dreamy, whimsical, joyous

Why Sonia Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
The dress I’m selling is my party/reception dress and while it has wonderful memories associated with it, to me it seems such a shame for such a beautiful fairytale gown to only be worn for about two hours. It is stunning and I hope that by selling it I can help some other bride’s dress dreams come true just like PreOwnedWeddingDresses did for me!

Olesya + Jack | Vera Wang Wedding from Penny Din Photography


Want to plan a super intimate, elopement style wedding but still want to include your international family members?  Fear not – there’s Skype! For Olesya + Jack’s destination wedding in Kauai, Hawaii, there was the ocean with a mountain view, the officiant and their American and Russian families watching from the comfort of their homes on Skype.  How cool is that?! And so picture perfect tying the knot under an enchanting kamani tree with orchids overhanging and Oleysa in her feather-like, hand made lace Vera Wang gown, Helena.  Heavenly!

The Ceremony
It was an intimate oceanfront ceremony under the canopy of a kamani tree with beautiful orchids overhanging from it…we exchanged vows at sunset. It was just the two of us, however our international (US and Russian) families were there with us on Skype. The ceremony took place in Hanalei Bay, in Kamani Cove that overlooks the breathtaking Pacific Ocean and Makana Mountain. We had a private Hawaiian-inspired officiant, dedicated wedding attendant, and an acoustic musician.

Jenea + Eric | Romona Keveza Wedding from Preston Utley Photography

This is a lovely lake house wedding with a stunning view of the Colorado Rockies. I love that Jenea + Eric said their I do’s under a handmade aspen arch overlooking Evergreen Lake.  Don’t miss the warm and inviting touches in yellow…like the aspen leaves scattered throughout the dinning tables or the pretty mix of yellow flowers in tinted mason jars.  Such a lovely day in an amazing log cabin venue.  Thanks for sharing Jenea + Eric!

The Ceremony
We had our ceremony on the back deck of the Evergreen Lake House overlooking Evergreen Lake in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. We got married under our handmade aspen arch with aspen wood we collected. Our unity ceremony was really special because we passed rocks from guest to guest, and then Eric and I stacked the rocks making a unity rock cairn.

The Reception
The reception was inside the Evergreen Lake House, which sits on the lake. It’s a beautiful, rustic log cabin style structure with a wraparound deck outside. It was so intimate and cozy inside with a beautiful fireplace and wood beams. We collected and dried yellow Aspen leaves last Fall to scatter on the tables, which was a beautiful and unique touch. Decorations were rustic and handmade to fit our mountain wedding. We had a sit down dinner, a great dance party, and special dances with our grandparents, including my grandfather who is 99! There was even a rainbow and full moon that night!

The dress was a very special and important part of the wedding for me. I’d been thinking about how I’d look in my dress on my wedding day for years. I tried on about 15 dresses before finding my dress. I knew it was perfect for me because of the way that I felt while wearing it. I felt beautiful from head to toe, and I knew my groom would absolutely love it, which was also important to me. It was also incredibly comfortable, and I knew I would enjoy the night and not be restricted by the dress.

Why Jenea Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
As much as I’d love to wear my dress many times again if I could, I know that it will sit in my closet. I’d love for someone else to feel the way I did, and pass on the dress to be enjoyed again.
