Here’s what to look for on your next Goodwill trip:

Gowns, Suits, and More!

Did you know Goodwill has wedding gowns for sale? It’s true! While wedding gowns typically cost upwards of $500 at a minimum, you can score an amazing once-worn gown for so much less at Goodwill. Be imaginative “” with a few alterations, your Goodwill wedding gown will be picture-perfect!

Goodwill also has everything you need to look your best as a wedding guest. Shop at Goodwill thrift stores for cocktail or evening attire dresses in all colors and styles. We also have dress shirts, ties, and suits to match.

Bridal Accessories

Accessories are another important part of putting together a bridal look, and they can also serve as a perfect way to incorporate ” something old” or ” something blue!”

Shop at Goodwill for classic or vintage-style earrings, necklaces, and bracelets to complement your gown. You may even be able to find a veil if you get lucky! Sparkly jewelry also makes a special gift for bridesmaids and the mother of the bride or groom. For the groom, a watch makes a great wedding day present, and you can usually find a few options at affordable prices.

Party Shoes

The importance of good wedding shoes should not be overlooked. You’ll be spending hours in your wedding-day shoes, so you want to be sure they’re comfortable! Instead of buying brand-new heels that you’ll need to break in, check Goodwill first. You might find some barely worn special occasion shoes that fit just right.

If you’d rather swap into a pair of even more comfortable dancing shoes at your reception, shop at Goodwill for stylish sneakers or sandals. You could even glue on rhinestones or lace to add that bridal effect to your shoes!

Wedding Gifts

Following a couple’s registry is always a safe bet, but if you’re looking for something more creative and unique, you could always find a wedding gift at Goodwill! How about a pair of champagne flutes to customize with the couple’s monogram?

Or, find a picture frame and fill it with one of the couple’s engagement photos. Books and vinyl records also make good gifts (or even wedding table décor), especially if they have sentimental meaning.
