Melissa Sweet is one of those coveted names in wedding gown designers, and why not? Her dresses are modern, sophisticated and always stylish! However these designer dresses also come with designer price tags to match (from $3,000 to $6,000).  If the dress is the thing you want to splurge on, I say go right ahead, it’s your special day!  However, if you like the idea of a designer dress, but want to pay a fraction of the price, these three once worn Melissa Sweet dresses are in excellent condition and come at an even sweeter price.

Melissa Sweet Treats

Save: Melissa Sweet Mila - $2,000

This Size 8 strapless, ruched taffeta wedding dress with floral corsage is oh so sophisticated and sexy. The ruching throughout the bodice and hips is especially figure flattering (read: you don’t have to suck your stomach in the whole night) and the trumpet skirt adds a bit of flare. Originally purchased for $5,750, but available for $2,000, you can be a stylish, smart and savvy bride with this choice.

Save:  Melissa Sweet Lia - $2,000

A classy fit to flair gown with draped neckline and ruched back of skirt, this Size 4 Melissa Sweet gown is in pristine condition. The figure flattering silhouette creates that coveted hour glass shape and looking at this dress makes me think of a chic evening wedding with a cocktail reception to follow—all glamour and style. 

Save:  Melissa Sweet Dora - $2,200

Elegant, romantic and sexy wrapped up into one beautiful dress, this Size 6 Melissa Sweet strapless wedding dress is made of dotted organza with a ruched wrap bodice and sash for a modern vintage feel. A fitted top for some "va va voom" and a free flowing skirt make this a perfect choice if you’re having an outdoor wedding and reception in the summer.  Purchased for $4,000 new, you can save $1,800 on this fabulous dress.
