Used wedding dress


Used wedding dress

Once the confetti settles and the last of the guests drive away, that same wedding dress goes into the dress bag and towards the back of the closet, never to see the light of day again. Meanwhile, at the other end of the city, a bride-to-be is hunting for her perfect wedding dress, she has a few special wedding dress styles in mind, but everything off-the-rack is far from the perfect fit for her vision as well as her wedding budget. Who knew that her perfect fit lies in the back of the closet somewhere, waiting for another chance to shine? If only there was a way they could help each other out. If only there was a perfect match. Oh wait, there is!
