After ten years in the bridal industry, it was obvious that wedding dress shopping didn't work for all our brides. Reselling dresses for past brides and independent boutiques and designers wasn't easy either.
We saw brides struggle to find a dress they loved with their shorter timelines, ethical and sustainable values, and budget vs dream dress price. To be totally honest, we saw too many brides feeling stressed out.

I grew up in sunny California with a love of finding beauty in everything. I have always considered myself dedicated to leaving the world better than I left it with a desire to figure out new ways for self-expression. This is how I fell in love with LVD. My hope is to help those I work with feel like they can be undeniably themselves while trying to give back to our environment. Read how Bri let her style shine as a bride!
I love vintage Chanel, tequila, and composting, aka I love personal style, celebrations, and mindful living. These passions led me to open my first bridal boutique, The Dress Theory in 2012. After three years and three locations, I realized there was room for change in my beloved bridal industry. LVD was the answer and began in Nashville in 2015. I've been girl crushing on our #reallvdbrides ever since.

It's everything to us. We're committed to curating the best collection held to excellent or pristine standards only and changing any stigma around consignment fashion. We know what a big deal your wedding dress is, whether you're buying or reselling.
Secondhand fashion is the most sustainable option out there. We want brides to find their dream dress not only discounted, but eco-consciously and effortlessly too.

The key to navigating wedding dress shopping, online or in person. Personalized, expert assistance from your own bridal stylist. We want to listen to your personal style and concerns, and find you a gown that makes you feel confident and celebrated.
Traditionally, wedding dress shopping has to be done 9-12 months before wedding days. We help brides walk out with their dream dress. This is great for brides with shorter wedding timelines. Or if you don't love the idea of shopping months before their wedding day as shopping off-the-rack gives you more flexibility with time. It's not rare for your budget, style, venue, size, or vision to change over a year.
If shopping in advance doesn't stress you out, perhaps you would feel better walking away with the exact dress you tried on. No promises or tricking yourself into believing you'll "like x better, when x happens". If you love when you find it, it's yours!
Perhaps you're bride that loves to shop the designer sale section or your dream dress isn't within your budget. We've got you covered. Another place that you shouldn't break if possible, your environmental conscious values.
A consignment wedding dress is THE MOST sustainable option available.
When you see the quality and designer styles we carry, you'll never doubt secondhand chic again. Your friends and family will be seriously impressed at your ability to discover the best pieces at the best prices. Without sacrificing quality or supporting imitations.
