Albany NY's only website specializing in new, vintage and used wedding gowns and bridal dresses that are clean and unstained. All our gowns are suitable for eco-friendly GREEN in WHITE weddings.
 
As a Times Union article says, "Although some designers offer wedding dresses made from hemp, sustainable silk or organic cotton, the choices are still limited. Once-worn wedding dresses seem to be becoming more popular, however, Harrison says she's heard of brides-to-be going to bridal stores to try on dresses then going elsewhere to buy it from companies that offer once-used dresses.
 
"It used to be taboo to have a used dress," says Rosalie Meyers of Bridal Gowns Used in Albany, adding that she has seen an increase in sales of the retro, vintage, sample, and used designer wedding gowns she offers."

Recycling wedding attire is important to save the environment. Recycled wedding attire will also save you money. No one will know you didn't buy it at an upscale bridal shop and how little it cost. And if you tell them, they will not believe it.  
 
We clean our garments without harsh chemicals so they are recycled into environmentally safe wearables at no additional cost to you. You also do not have to worry whether the stains will come out or if the gown will be ruined in the cleaning process. I have opened many boxes of cleaned and preserved boxed gowns only to find they are still stained. Sometimes they appear not to have been cleaned at all. I have even found unopened boxed gowns that were destroyed from incorrect cleaning fluid as well as pressing at the wrong temperature..
 
I can't stress enough the importance of buying a clean and unstained gown. What I sell is guaranteed to be as described.             
 
Each gown is unique. Modest, sexy, simple or just simply elegant but all are different styles and sizes.

Welcome to BRIDAL GOWNS USED.COM   
 
I've noticed bridal gown designers are not featuring many strapless gowns this season. They are showing gowns with short sleeves and long sleeves with more attention to vintage styles. Wattau trains and cowl necks are back! Ruching is popular as it hides our flaws. Sparkle and glitter fabrics have become the norm. You can find all these new styles offered on this site.
 
The biggest change I noticed is the use of lace. Lace is everywhere. It's being shown alone, with much glitter and with satin. There isn't a more romantic fabric than lace.
 
Whatever your style or budget our reasonably priced, clean and unstained bridal wedding gowns in sizes 0 to plus size 26 will interest you. See all our bridal accessories and wedding reception accessories too.  Our prices are cheap but our merchandise is first class, from top designers.
We don't sell rip-offs.
 
Thanks for coming. I hope you have a beautiful wedding and a long and happy marriage.

You can restyle a gown. Change the sleeves, shorten or remove them. Shorten the train, remove it for a short gown or dress. Use the fabric from the train to add sleeves. Make it a sheath or strapless gown. Replace the entire top. Add a colored sash or belt. 
 
TIP: You can do a sash yourself by buying either 2 3/4" wide or 4" wide double faced, edged ribbon in a craft store. You only need string to measure around your waist, tie it in a bow and decide how long you want the tails. Measure the same way for a belt, fold in the ends and secure it with a broach.
 
Our trains are measured  from where it hits the floor as if it were to be cut off at floor length. The gown size given is from the tag in the gown. There is no common standard in gown sizes. Our measurements are all assumed to be approximate. We measure every gown as exactly as possible to guide you.  Do not assume a gown size tag is the size you buy in street clothes. It is not.  Measuring yourself will help you find a gown that is apt to be within your personal body size.
 
The colors shown on this site are not necessarily true to the items. We do our best to depict the actual color but they are often viewed differently on different monitors.
