At ReWed, you are able to choose from new, samples, or gently pre-owned wedding dresses, formal gowns and rental tuxedos. After the wedding, sell your dress by consigning it with us. We do all the work, your items get exposure to hundreds of brides and your dress will be expertly matched with someone who is sure to love it as much as you.
ReWed started as a one day wedding event where couples could rent a booth at a wedding venue to sell their wedding dresses or décor. These events were so successful that we decided to open a permanent retail space to help brides shopping on a budget.
About the Founder
Hi I'm Stephanie! I got married in 2013 and all of my decorations, flowers, cake and even my veil were DIY. I am a very crafty person and chose this route mostly because I loved it but also because I was determined to stick to my budget (I also bought a house that same year). Lets face it, weddings aren't cheap. One of the biggest expenses for me was a wedding dress. I had a hard time justifying spending that much money on something I was only going to wear a few hours. I secretly dreamed of buying a used wedding dress. Who would even know? I thought about being able to shop the brands and dresses of my dreams and saving money for my honeymoon and house. Unfortunately, there weren't any bridal shops like this local to me and I did not feel safe or comfortable shopping on Facebook marketplace or online without trying them on.
After talking to friends and family, I realized I wasn't the only one having this issue, out of this came the idea of a wedding resale business. I hosted two large one day wedding events and they were a great success but I wanted more. I wanted brides to be able to have that amazing boutique feel and be treated like a queen. I dreamed of a permanent location.
I chose Front Royal, VA not only for it's central location but for it's amazing view of the Shenandoah mountains and welcoming residents. I visited many times, and saw that there was a real need for a formal wear store. Brides or anyone shopping for formal wear could make a day trip and see all there is to do in downtown Front Royal. I was sold.
I am currently in the process of relocating from Fredericksburg, VA to Woodstock, VA and will be opening the store front by February 2021 with consignments being accepted in January. I look forward to everything this amazing town has to provide and to bringing a much needed service to the area.
