New Orleans, La. - A tough economy means finding new ways to make ends meet.
A growing number of brides are selling their wedding gowns before they even say, "I do."
They wear the dress for the wedding, and then sell it to another bride-to-be for a price, according to a report from AOL.
Websites, like preownedweddingdresses.com, gained in popularity after the economy tanked in 2008. On the site, some women were able to make as much back as 50-percent of their dress' retail price.
