1. The Altar – The Altar is located in Lakewood, Colorado right off of Colfax. They carry both wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses, new and preowned. All of their bridesmaid dresses are $25. They also carry flower girl dresses, boys tuxedos, shoes and accessories.
2. The Green Bride – The Green Bride is located in Littleton, Colorado. They carry both wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses, new and preowned. Walk-ins are available but they highly encourage you make an appointment in order to receive the best customer service.
3. Craigslist – No, seriously. Craiglist is a go to place for second hand merchandise that people no longer have a use for. Past bride’s are no exception. A quick Craiglist search for “wedding” today brings up almost 500 results.
Out of all of these, I’m partial to the Altar because that’s where I picked up my wedding dress. It took me a little under two hours to find my dream dress at their shop and the ladies working there were so helpful!
It’s also important to keep in mind that because these are second hand options, they usually only have one of each dress and their stock varies based on what they still have in stock. They cannot order something for you, or make it magically appear. And when you find the dress of your dreams, you will most likely need alterations.
As of right now these are the only second hand wedding dress stores in Denver. There use to be a few more but as far as I know those no longer exist. If you know of any others, please let me know in the comments below and I will add them!
