Oncewed.com is still one of our most regularly followed blogs, and is a real inspiration for everyone over here at Sash and Satin. What started as an outlet to allow brides to sell their wedding dresses blossomed into something much bigger. The site is now full of amazing real wedding photos, bridal inspiration posts and their used wedding dress section is still one of the best around.
About www.oncewed.com ”OnceWed.com was launched in March 2008 by Emily Newman. After trying to sell her wedding dress online, she realized how few options there were out there for other brides looking to do the same thing and decided to launch the first and only free online listing service for wedding dresses. The success of the wedding blog she writes daily came as a bit of a surprise, and was the catalyst for the recent re-branding of Once Wed into the ultimate resource for brides who aren’t looking to plan the typical wedding.”
Once Wed is currently run by Emily who is the Founder & Editor, and Joy Thigpen who joined the team in 2010 (but according to the site was an ally for longer than that). Joy Thigpen ‘spent seven years photographing weddings before transitioning into designing and styling them. She is motivated to make things beautiful and interesting and weddings provide a perfect outlet for her love of all things lovely. Joy now serves as the Creative Director for the site and is thrilled to get to be a part of OnceWed.’
