The Ceremony
Our ceremony was held at the gorgeous San Francisco city hall.  Let’s be honest here – folks don’t always look forward to the ceremony.  People often look forward to cocktail hour or the reception, so we wanted to make the ceremony short, sweet and nothing too formal.  I also didn’t want to deal with the hassle of renting more chairs and having to deal with decorations, so city hall was perfect for that.  Our really good friend, Jeff, officiated our wedding.  We also chose San Francisco city hall because it’s has such wonderful lighting and architecture; I knew it would make a fantastic backdrop.  We’re also not outdoorsy people and Ken grew up in SF, so it was the perfect place. While initially, I was a bit sad that I wouldn’t have a nice “aisle” to walk down, to my surprise, I got to walk through much of city hall on my way to my groom and I think it built up a nice anticipation.

The Reception
The reception was held at a loft like art gallery called Terra.  We chose Terra because we were looking for an industrial, loft-like space to transform and Terra made that possible.  It has nice floor-to-ceiling windows and exposed grey concrete, so it went really well with our vision.  Our theme was winter-chic, so we decorated with light up birch trees from restoration hardware, European street lamps and hung twinkle lights from the ceiling as if they were a sky of stars.  We also made use of candles to give it that romantic glow.

Deb’s Dress Search
I tried on about eight dresses, though I had my eye on two or three and I ended up picking the one of the three.  I choose the Paloma by Hayley Paige because it was the perfect blend of comfort, style and also possessed that WOW factor.   I found that the Grecian pleating and boning details that went into designing the dress hide every imperfection.  Sweetheart necklines are flattering on almost everyone, so it makes sense many wedding dresses make use of that type of neckline.  However, I didn’t want my dress to look just like everyone else’s dress, so I really liked the fact that the Paloma had a nice slit in the front of the dress, to show off some pizzazz and personality.  The crystal bolero (part of the design of the dress, but sold separately) was definitely a statement piece…It’s such an eye-catching and commanding piece, no other jewelry was necessary.  You don’t really see brides wear such statement jewelry with their wedding dress so it was nice to have a piece of jewelry that really stands out from the crowd.  I’m also very into anything that sparkles and glitters, so the crystal bolero was a must have for me.

How Deb Felt in Her Wedding Dress
Powerful and commanding, in a feminine way, very comfortable and like a million dollars.

Why Deb Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
Deciding to sell my wedding dress was actually quite a very hard decision for me to make.  I went back and forth many times before actually committing to creating a dress listing on PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com.  What made me ultimately decide to post the dress was a combination of things: there’s no point in saving this dress for my future daughter.  Styles change so rapidly and I wouldn’t want her to feel obligated to wear it.  Plus, who knows if I’d even have a daughter later on!  There’s really no other occasion where I could possibly wear the dress ever again. The bolero, yes, but not the dress.  Rather than preserving it and having it tucked away in a box and taking up precious space in my closet, I’d rather have someone else feel the way I felt when I wore the dress on my big day.  While I did consider having a wedding dress party, where all my married gal pals would wear their wedding dresses, I didn’t want to isolate my unmarried gal pals and I think that would’ve scared my husband, if he came home one day and saw a bunch of us in our wedding attire…

Today’s featured wedding comes to us from the white sandy beach of Treasure Cay, Abaco, Bahamas.

Don’t miss Nicole’s lovely lace Ulla-Maija strapless wedding gown and the beautiful floral arrangements in white and light pink peonies, roses, orchids and lots of lush greens. Enjoy!

The Ceremony
Timothy grew up going to the Bahamas. His family has a home in Treasure Cay, Abaco and has been going there for over 40 years. It is safe to say that Treasure Cay is Timothy’s second home and an obvious choice for him to propose to me and plan a wedding there! The ceremony was elegant but simple. Only 50 people! It took place on the white sands of Treasure Cay where the groom was barefoot and the bride wore Jimmy Choo strappy sandals and their dogs were the flower girl and ring bearer.

Nicole’s Dress Search
I tried on seven dresses before I found this one. For me, it wasn’t a hard decision. I was looking for something that felt good on and made me feel like a princess…this dress just did it for me and we all decided that it was the one the moment that I tried it on.

Why Nicole Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
It makes me so sad to see such a beautiful dress just sitting in my closet, probably never to be worn again by me and so I thought, someone else can get such joy from having this dress and maybe I can help bring them that joy by selling it. I thought about saving it for my daughter one day but who’s to say that I even have a daughter! I love the dress and I am sad to part with it but happy that it can make someone’s wedding day as spectacular as mine.

Christine + Tobey | Lazaro Wedding from Full Spectrum Photography


Lazaro, 3207 | PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com

What a wonderful way to kick off the first week of May with a classic wedding set on the private Reserve Club in beautiful Palm Desert, California. Christine + Tobey are such an elegant couple surrounded by friends and family.  And how special that Christine’s ten-year-old son was such a important part of the couple’s wedding day.  We love that the nuptials included a sand ceremony to represent the “blending” together of this family of three.  Don’t miss Christine’s stunning and sophisticated Lazaro wedding gown complete with lace bodice, satin and silk gown and a gorgeous light grey satin belt detailed in crystal beads.  Enjoy!

The Ceremony
The day was sunny with scattered clouds (which made for excellent photos!) but it was quite windy on our big day!  The ceremony was held at a gazebo located on a large grassy area with a water feature in the background.  The venue was simply stunning with very little needed for decorations because the surroundings and gazebo itself were so beautiful.  The bride’s 10-year-old son walked her down the aisle while Marc Cohen’s “True Companion” played in the background.  Her son did a special handshake with the groom (his soon to be “Bonus Dad”) before handing off his mom.  The ceremony also included a sand ceremony to represent the “blending” of this special family of three together.  As the bride and groom kissed, Pharrel’s song “Happy” played and the guests gathered around the gazebo for hugging, dancing, and some group photos.

The Reception
Unfortunately, due to the threat of rain at 6pm, which would have been in the middle of dinner, the bride and her team had to make the decision to set up the reception indoors instead of having the “romantically lit outdoor setting” that had been planned.  The team did a beautiful job recreating the setting inside and everyone loved the intimate feel of being gathered in the Governor’s Room at The Reserve Club.  The guests enjoyed an amazing dinner of prime rib paired with grilled jumbo shrimp with stacked gratin potato and seasonal vegetables.  A simple two-layer carrot cake decorated with succulents was displayed with the glittered word “love” on top.  The children enjoyed small jugs of milk with moustache straws paired with freshly baked cookies. Adults had an extra sweet tooth satisfaction of mini red velvet cupcakes.  The whole day was truly special and we hear over and over from many of our guests that our wedding was the most intimate, emotional, and heartfelt wedding that they had ever been to.  That really made us feel good!

Christine’s Dress Search
I had tried on close to 30 different dresses at six different wedding shops!  Being a bride who is in her 40’s, I wanted to find something flowy and romantic but with some “sexiness” and sophistication to it.  I wanted it to be the right style for our venue and also wanted it to be COMFORTABLE! I was really struggling to find a dress that I really liked and felt was “the one.”  I bought a dress and to make a long story short, it ended up a disaster.  I was four weeks away from the wedding day, and I was panicked!   I found a girl who was selling this gorgeous Lazaro because she had originally bought it for her wedding but ended up changing her mind and bought a different dress.  I felt hopeful that this Lazaro could work when I saw that it was unaltered, with the tags still on, AND it was in the exact size I would need (I had tried on a few Lazaro dresses before so I knew what my size was for that label!).  She let me come to her house to try it on…and it fit like a glove!  I did not need to have any alterations done to it!  I felt so lucky to find a dress at the last minute…one that fit me so well, had the sexiness AND sophistication I was looking for, and made me feel beautiful!

The Ceremony
Our simple, outdoor ceremony was held in a wooded lot of a historic water mill site. Some of my favorite memories include walking down the isle to a modern version of “Come thou fount”, almost accidentally kissing my groom too soon after the unity candle, and seeing all our guest’s loving and smiling faces upon our exit. Leading up to our wedding we were so anxious of potential storms but the weather was a perfect breezy August day.

The Reception
For our reception, we were hoping for an elegant and woodland feel with all our guests gathered together in another wooded area of the water mill site. For dinner, we enjoyed casual Cajun food and for dessert, we had donuts from our favorite local mom-and-pop shop.  Some of our best friends from college sang our first dance song after which we enjoyed the celebration with all of our closest friends and family. August 2, 2014 was our dream come true!

Hannah’s Dress Search
For my dress search I tried on probably thirty dresses over the course of several months. I tried on many different styles and different prices.  I chose the one I did because it was perfect! It was so unique and so me! I wanted something with sleeves and an empire waste. I felt comfortable in it and it was figure flattering. Plus it was a subtle blush pink…and I fell in love.

Why Hannah Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I don’t feel an emotional attachment to my dress and it was a budget splurge. It was beyond perfect for the day and worth every penny… but now that my wedding is over I have my marriage to be in love with, not the wedding dress. If some other bride can feel beautiful in a light blush ball gown… then I want her to have the dress for her special day!

Kristin + Aaron | Romona Keveza Wedding from onelove photography


Romona Keveza RK526 | PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com

Bride Kristin chose an iconic wedding dress look for a classic wedding venue. Her gorgeous Chantilly lace Romona Keveza wedding gown came with long sleeves, which paid homage to the style of legendary brides through the decades. The amazing estate which hosted Kristin and Aaron’s vows and reception was decked out in an elegant vintage-inspired theme with blush pink, cream and glimmers of gold.

The Ceremony
When it came to planning our wedding, we knew that we wanted the day to be intimate and private. Il Palazzo was the first venue that we looked at. We were married in the backyard of this beautiful Tuscan-inspired estate. Our florist arranged for us the most beautiful flowers that matched the crème garden roses in the backyard, with hints of blush and dove grey, our wedding colors. Following the ceremony, our guests gathered for cocktails before moving indoors for the reception.

The Reception
Our reception took place inside of the Il Palazzo Estate beneath its 36-foot tall ceilings and crystal chandeliers which hung from nearly every room throughout. For our grand entrance, we walked down the double spiral staircase in front of our closest friends and family. The estate truly is as magnificent as it is grand. The 36,000-square-foot estate sits on a hilltop overlooking the ocean on nearly two acres. It’s unbelievable to think that we didn’t even monopolize half of the home the day of our wedding!

Kristin’s Dress Search
How many dresses did I try on? ONE!! I knew from the get-go that I wanted my wedding dress to have sleeves. I’ve always been inspired by iconic brides in history — from Grace Kelly to Kate Middleton — and I couldn’t have found a more perfect dress than the Romona Keveza gown that I walked down the aisle in. It was the first wedding dress that I tried on, and I knew from the moment I took one look at those beautiful lace sleeves that that was MY wedding dress.

Why Kristin Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
It’s such a beautiful dress!! Although I would love nothing more than to keep it forever, the reality is that it will wind up being boxed up for storage or hanging in a closet. I would love for another bride (or two, or three…!) to wear it and keep its beauty alive.

Kirsten + Chris | Christos Wedding from Barnett Photography


Christos, Scarlett | PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com

Ocean view, modern glamor and a figure flattering Christos, Scarlett wedding gown…Kirsten + Chris’ beach front wedding in San Diego was breathtaking.  We love the mod decorative touches like the bold print table runners and matching napkins in grey and white and the eye catching tall glass vases topped with white hydrangeas and just a pop of purple and light green.  Don’t miss the really cool wood bow ties for the groom and groomsmen or the amazing photo montage of Kirsten + Chris cliff jumping into the ocean in their formal wear, wedding dress and all!  But not to worry, Kirsten spared her Christos gown for the big leap into the water (she’s wearing a stand-in).  Wild!

The Ceremony + Reception
Chris and I have been friends since high school, but we didn’t fall for each other until June 2012 when a group of friends took a trip to Las Vegas to see the worlds best DJ’s at the Electric Daisy Carnival. I’m also blessed to have had the most perfect proposal on the beach in Costa Rica and then the perfect wedding on the beach in San Diego with my love of my life! We were married on October 11th, 2014 at La Jolla Shores Hotel, in San Diego, California.  We had a beach ceremony with a flamenco guitarist, then a garden cocktail hour.  Followed by a warm open patio with string lights.

Kirsten’s Dress Search
For my dress search I visited six stores in six months and I must have tried on about fifteen dresses.  In the end I chose my Christos, Scarlett wedding gown because it was so flattering and comfortable. I felt absolutely beautiful. Curves and all…It was the perfect fit for my lady lumps. I love this dress!
