Not only do they have a brick and mortar store in NYC that you can go to, but Nearly Newlywed is the only way to buy designer gowns online for less with the assurance that you’re getting the big name gown you want!
Let me explain Newly Newlywed’s brilliance by starting at the beginning:
A couple of months ago I saw in a thread on a forum an excited bride talking about what a steal she got on her wedding dress. She purchased what she thought was a Vera Wang gown for “under $400!”
I guarantee you… it was not a Vera Wang gown that she ended up with.
A good rule to follow is: if it sounds too good to be true it is too good to be true.
I’ve heard about it again and again – an unknowing bride finds the dress of her dreams online for an unbelievable price, orders it just in time for her wedding, and when it arrives she realizes it’s a cheap, ugly knockoff.
Next time you come across a site that is advertising big name bridal labels for unreal prices check the following things first:
- Do they ship from China? If yes, it’s a knockoff.
- Are the models’ faces blurred in the photographs? If yes, it’s a stolen image and therefore a knockoff.
- Does the website look cheap, poorly maintained, or badly designed? If yes, it’s a knockoff.
And aside from all that, major wedding labels don’t sell online. They only sell through boutiques where the consultants know their gowns, can answer questions, and fit the bride to perfection. It’s also unethical and illegal to buy replica gowns.
If you’re looking to buy a designer label wedding dress for less online then that’s where Nearly Newlywed comes in. Not only do they have brand new gowns, but Nearly Newlywed also buys high-end sample gowns (the ones you try on in boutiques) and once worn gowns from brides and boutiques, assures their authenticity, and then offers them to you at a price you can’t beat for the real deal.
Paolo Sebastian, Valentino, Elie Saab, Vera Wang, Sarah Seven, Reem Acra – they’ve got it all plus a collection that is unique to them.
One of the best things about Nearly Newlywed is their try before you buy option. They’ll ship a wedding dress (or three) straight to your doorstep where you can try it on in the comfort of your own home. If you love it – then you can buy it. If it’s not quite right, ship it back.
And here’s some great news for island brides – they even ship to Hawaii! In fact, I used a Nearly Newlywed gown for the bridal portion of the Ku’u Lei shoot this past weekend I worked with Orchestrated Stylized Shoots on (see sneak peeks here, it’s the shoot with the turquoise pineapple).
The dresses arrived to my house well before we needed them and in flawless condition. The gowns fit our model correctly, were completely divine, and I may or may not be sitting in a gorgeous Reem Acra wedding dress right now as I type this post (just kidding Nearly Newlywed!).
Mark your calendar and stop by in early March to not only see a gorgeous Nearly Newlywed dress in action from the aforementioned inspiration shoot but to also enter a generous giveaway from Nearly Newlywed!
