Rob and I were watching Shark Tank last night and I just had to share one of the companies that was pitched to the sharks, Nearly Newlywed. It truly is an amazing idea and perfect for brides on a budget!
“Nearly Newlywed is an online boutique for modern brides to buy, try and sell ‘nearly new’, fashion-forward, hard-to-find dresses. We believe that for the modern bride, the perfect day requires the perfect dress, and finding and trying a once worn dress should be just as fun as shopping for a brand new one.”
What an ingenious idea! Give a bride the opportunity to wear a dress she could never normally afford, with the option of getting it even cheaper by selling it back when she is done. I know that many women like to keep their dresses. Really though, it spends the rest of time in a box and may come out once in awhile for children and grandchildren to see. I bet most women, if asked, would take wearing their dream dress at an affordable price over keeping it in their closet. Am I right?
