Aside from her glow, a bride’s gown is the centerpiece of her special day. When choosing a wedding dress, many factors come into play. Style, fabric, color, size and often most importantly, cost. Budget conscious brides can find a gently used wedding dress for a fraction of the gown’s original retail price. While most bridal gowns are only worn once, some ‘used’ dresses were never even worn once but still cannot be classified as new.
Located in Jacksonville Beach, Heirloom Bridal, is a wedding dress consignment shop with affordable prices for the budget conscious bride that offers a unique shopping experience. They carry new, sample, and once wed bridal dresses. We spoke with owner, Erica Almonte-Wiggins, about her shop and her is what she had to say…..
