Here comes the (vintage) bride: the Eskadi wedding edit

Apr 7, 2022

We all know how EXPENSIVE weddings are from venue, to guests, the honeymoon (and so much more). Well… the main event, the outfit does not have to be so! The pre-owned wedding dress market is growing and it is one way to guarantee your unique, timeless and sustainable wedding outfit. Statement headpieces, vintage shoes and dainty bags can all also be found on the pre-owned market to complete the wedding look. Whether you’re thinking sheer, lace, embellished, satin, with sleeves or without, there are years of wedding dresses and bridal catwalks from designers such as Chanel, Elie Saab, Temperley and many more to search and discover. 

Brides are warming to and appreciative of the idea that a wedding dress has already been worn on someone’s special day. The stories of its’ previous lover, their lover and the most important day that dress shared with them, have romanticised the outfit even further and we can’t get enough of it. Then there’s the after party. What’s better than one distinctive pre-owned wedding outfit than two. If it wasn’t difficult enough to buy one wedding outfit, to think of a second for the reception, at a large cost can be overwhelming and so we have made that a little easier with some of our favourite picks.

The resale market is also laden with some of the most smashing headpieces from vintage veils, to decorative headbands which are sure to add spark to your elegant look. Furthermore, we all know the joy of finding a vintage pair of Chanel slingbacks or a cute sandal, so what’s stopping you from doing so on your wedding day. We ADORE this lime green Chanel treasure.
