Dress Q: Where can I buy a pre-owned designer gown?

I received a question about my post on glamorous Pronovias gowns with sleeves. Thought I'd answer Anonymous with several resources I looked up online.

Q: I love these gowns, but cannot afford them. Does anyone have one that they are willing to sell second-hand?

A: I did look at top pre-owned wedding gown sites, and these are the ones I found (in no particular preference):

1) http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com/
2) http://www.thedressmarket.net/
3) http://www.woreitonce.com/
4) http://www.oncewed.com/used-wedding-dresses/

Example of a listing:

I was amazed to see the number of stunning designer gowns listed, by like fashionistas Monique Lhuillier, Pronovias, Amsale, Claire Pettibone, Vera Wang, Elizabeth Filmore, etc. For a worn-only-once dress, the prices were very reasonable, some almost 65% off the retail value for a gown that was still in season. Sizes varied as well. Hope this helps!
