About the creator
Hi! I'm Aly Faucett - Creator of Rebridal.
I was watching “Say Yes to the Dress” on TV one night while packing for a trip. My boyfriend came into the room and exclaimed, “$2000 for a dress you wear once?!” I told him that’s how much dresses cost, and if you come into a bridal salon with a budget any tighter your choices are vastly limited.
Around this same time I began consciously trying to live more sustainably and started shopping for clothes through online thrift stores. I wondered if there was an online thrift store for wedding dresses. There wasn’t, so I created one!
The environmental impact of single-use fashion. It takes about 2,377 gallons of water to make one wedding dress that will eventually live in the back of your closet or end up in a landfill. Choosing a secondhand dress is good for the planet and your wallet.
The wedding attire double standard for women. It isn’t the norm for men to purchase high-end tuxedos for their wedding day, so why is the same expected of women? If spending thousands on a dress isn’t your style, you should have a viable alternative.
When you shop with Rebridal, I want you to feel like you have a choice instead of feeling pressure to make a large financial commitment to a dress. I hope you feel empowered to choose an alternative that will make you feel just as confident and beautiful on your wedding day.
