I wanted to do something a little different with this post. I have talked with a lot of friends about thredUP and the great items I’ve found on there. A lot of people I’ve talked to complain that they can never find anything because there’s just too much to search through. I was looking through the items that thredUP receives from Rent the Runway and realized I was seeing a lot of things I would wear to a wedding. I actually love looking for dresses to attend a wedding. It’s a challenge for me because I can’t just wear black. I found a great Kate Spade dress on thredUP that I was meant to wear to a wedding in 2020, but instead it ended up just being a part of a photoshoot with me and a tripod in my apartment.
SO, since 2021 is going to be the year of weddings with everyone whose wedding was moved to 2021 and everyone who got engaged in 2020. I decided since I was bored and having fun shopping to put together a list of some of the best contenders I found in case anyone needs a dress for a wedding. It’s a little tricky with thrift because I could post one today and by the time you see it it’s sold, but hopefully this can at least get your search started. (these are also all midsize dresses but they have great dresses in a wide range of sizes and the Rent the Runway collection has multiple of some items in multiple sizes)
And if you want to test the limits of black at a wedding…
Let me know what you think of my picks! I hope this post at least inspired you to look through thrift for your next wedding guest dress. ~save money and the earth~
