Have you ever wondered what you can do with your once-worn gown after the big day? A tactic that’s become popular among budget-conscious brides these days is selling their designer dress before their wedding. On various wedding web sites, brides can inform potential buyers when their never-worn wedding gowns will be available at a discounted price.

“The economy is still not where we’d all like it to be,” Tracy DiNunzio, CEO and founder of RecycledBride.com said in a Today article. “If you find your dream gown and you know it’s a little bit out of your budget, you can guarantee you’ll make some of your money back even before you wear it.”

What do you think? Let us know in the poll below.

We are very excited about the exclusive, private runway videos we shot at Bridal Week in New York!  Not only do these videos enhance the exquisiteness of each gown, but it allows you to see how the dress moves; something that is very important to take note of for a garment you’ll be in for five or more hours.

Along with each private runway video, we had the pleasure of interviewing the designer and getting their point of view on their Spring 2013 collection. Each dress was created with a purpose, and we loved hearing the inspiration behind each gown.

The Roaring ‘20s

The upcoming Leo DiCaprio film must be inspiring designers, because a number of looks look like they could have been taken right out of The Great Gatsby. These Art Deco-inspired wedding gowns adorned figure-flattering gowns with delicate metallic beading and embroidery at the waist, neckline and back.

Take this Jenny Packham stunner (left) with a jewel-encrusted halter neckline and fan like beaded applique at the waist. The “pull” in the fabric creates soft lines to enhance an hourglass figure.

Probably one of the most eye-catching backs of the season is on this dress by Elizabeth Fillmore (center), who described her collection as 1930s inspired. The butterfly design featured here is so unexpected, quite elegant and truly enchanting. It also creates a portrait or keyhole shape, allowing brides to show off a sexy, toned back.

Editor’s Note: Are you a fan of butterflies? Check out the latest Aruna Seth bridal collection with crystal butterflies embellishing the toes. In addition to wedding-day shoes for the bride, bridesmaids and moms are sure to find a pair to wear with their dress. The designer offers 50 colors from pastels to brights in a variety of heel heights.

Using both metallic thread and beads, Reem Acra (right) adds panache to the sheer V-neckline of this gorgeous sophisticated gown. The pattern continues from the bodice onto the capped sleeves. To complete the Art Deco theme, the Acra accessorized with a pleated tulle veil that covered the sat on the top of the head and was held in place by a beaded band.

Go for Gold!

Maybe it was the 2012 Summer Olympics that inspired designers, because gold (and silver too) made their mark on the bridal runway this week. Metallic embellishments debuted a few seasons ago but this time around they have a beautiful boldness to them.

A very regal color, gold gives a simple white dress the va-va-va-voom factor the glam girl is looking for. If you’re shopping in the non-white dress market (or for a fabulous number for your reception) you’ll find all gold gowns that will surely have all head’s turning.

Marchesa’s majestic ball gown with a full tulle skirt is paired with a structured strapless bodice featuring an ornate gold pattern.

This red-carpet worthy shimmering metallic gold Ines Di Santo gown is as sexy as it gets, with a thigh-high slit in the skirt and a one-shoulder neckline.

You can barely see it but this Reem Acra ball gown with elaborate gold embroidery has an illusion neckline with a high crew neck. The gold pattern continues to the edge of the tulle, creating a capped sleeve unlike any we’ve seen on the runway, and the result is simple stunning.
