Op for an Op Shop Wedding Gown?


Op Shops:

Finding wedding veils, tiaras and shoes can be hard to find. But there always tends to be the odd few wedding dresses, lined up and ready to go. I was not so lucky to find one in my style and size when I was hunting for a dress at the time.

So if you're timing and size is right, you can find a super affordable dress at your local op shop. Specific locations in Sydney where I have sighted second hand (and at times even new) wedding dresses are in Lane Cove, Crows Nest, Epping, North Ryde, Gordon and North Sydney St Vincent De Paul's and The Salvation Army. I have seen retro styles, even new but simple/basic styles and classic vintage styles, in the price range of $30 - $600.
