Rachel Connealy, 26, from Florida, showed off the full-length silk gown she wore to her wedding ceremony on TikTok this week, saying she bought it at Goodwill for next to nothing.

 

 

‘I thrifted this silk dress right after we got engaged and still wore it for the ceremony,’ she captioned the video of her modeling the dress on her big day.

 

 

The ethereal frock featured draping across the bodice and a sheer capelet. She topped off the look with a matching sheer veil and white stacked heel sandals.

 

 

And that wasn’t the only thrifted dress she donned that day. Two weeks before Rachel said ‘I do,’ she found her ‘dream wedding dress’ at Goodwill for $5 and wore it to her reception.

 

 

She also shared a video of this frock on TikTok, writing: ‘You never know what you’ll find at the thrift 2 weeks before your wedding.’ The second, more whimsical look was a mini dress with puffy white sleeves and a flouncy floral lace skirt.

 

 

Rachel managed to score two different wedding dresses for less than $10, which is more than just a good deal. The average cost of a wedding gown in the U.S. is $1,631, including alterations, according to Brides. However, prices can range from $500 to $25,000 or more, depending on the designer.

 

 

Rachel’s wedding dress videos have earned a combined total of nearly 1.5 million views, and people were understandably amazed by her incredible finds. ‘Genuinely stunning. Like something out of a magazine,’ one fan gushed, while another added: ‘Loving the minimalist look, also seems expensive af.’

 

 

‘Amazing finds, idk how you did it but they are both so unique & beautiful!!’ someone else commented. Rachel also received a number of comparisons to the Duchess of Sussex, who opted for a timeless white gown for her own royal wedding.

 

 

‘You remind me of gorgeous Meghan Markle here!’ one person wrote.’I thought you were Meghan Markle,’ someone else admitted. ‘U look a bit like Meghan Markle,’ another agreed.
