Borrowing Magnolia, a new e-commerce business that launched July 1, offers pre-worn wedding gowns to prospective brides for sale or rental at a fraction of the original prices.

They knew the biggest asset of many brides — the wedding gown — is folded away in a box in the attic. At the same time, many young brides-to-be can’t afford to buy their dream dress.
