How about outfitting your entire bridal party head-to-toe in one fell swoop?
These are the kinds of deals a Recycled Bride dreams of! Behold — a brand new set of listings that will make your bridesmaids insta-chic from head to toe! A generous seller with whom I’ve had the pleasure of corresponding has listed these 9 never-worn Alfred Sung bridesmaids dresses, 9 brand new pretty pairs of Dyeables shoes, and 9 silver and pink pearl neckaces with matching earrings. <!–more–>
The classic pink satin bridesmaids dresses by Alfred Sung have a unique two-piece design that makes them figure-flattering and super easy to tailor. The seller has sizes 0, 4, 4, 6, 10, 12, 14, 16, and 20, and each dress can be altered to fit a bridesmaid several sizes smaller or even a bit larger. Each dress is brand new and cost $180, but they’re listed here at just $125 apiece — that’s 30% off each dress and $495 off the total cost of all nine dresses! (Yeah that’s right, I’m pretty badass with a calculator.)
To go with those pretty bridesmaids dresses, there are 9 pairs of brand new, white Dyeables strappy sandals in sizes 6, 7.5, 7.5, 8, 8.5, 8.5, 9, 9.5, and 9.5. Leave them white for a summer wedding, or dye them silver to go with the jewels below, or make ‘em pink to matchy-match the dresses. You ready for some more math? These 9 pairs of shoes cost the seller $54 each — that’s $486 total. But they’re all yours for just $40 apiece, or $360 total, OBO!
(*Let’s pause from all this fabulosity for a brief word about the meaning of OBO, which stands for “or best offer.” When you see this fun little acronym in a listing, it means that the seller expects you to bargain and is willing to be flexible about pricing. <Jackpot!> Be respectful and appreciative of the seller’s openness by avoiding super-lowball offers. But don’t be afraid to wheel and deal either! You’ll find that sellers who have multiple items to unload — like the one feature today — are very receptive to lowering prices for buyers who want to buy all their items. And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming…)Add these lovely, feminine jewelry sets that were custom made to go with the bridesmaids dresses and shoes, and your bridesmaids’ look is polished from head to toe. Plus, these bad boys double as bridal party gifts! They were originally $30 apiece, but the seller is asking just $20 each OBO. If you bought all 9 jewelry sets, that would be just $180 total — a full 33% off!
This is kind of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, ladies. Just ask any bride who’s struggled to find affordable, elegant, coordinated bridesmaids attire for a large bridal party. Whoever buys this set will get to skip all the crazy legwork and jump straight to the celebrating, while saving tons of time and money. That’s less time shopping, and more time drinking margaritas.
Can’t argue with margaritas.
