ONBB: Old New Borrowed & Blue- A Bride’s Best Friend
News flash, weddings are expensive.
Are you trying to find a way to cut costs for you big day?
Did you purchase a ton of “stuff” for your wedding that is just collecting dust in a corner?
Are you in search of great deals?
Well, let me bring you in on a little secret. There is a new company based out of our fabulous city called ONBB (that’s short for Old, New Borrowed & Blue) that is going to change the way you acquire deals and resell your fabulous items. This website is going to be your new best friend both before, and shortly after, your big day.
Why? It’s so easy to use! You can download the app via the website here or you can download the app here on your iPhone or iPad to start selling items and/or purchasing from others. Fun fact? This is the only bridal resale app out there.
So…..What exactly is ONBB? I reached out to the Owner and CEO, Heidi Melton, to find out more.
What inspired you to create ONBB?

What types of items seem to be your most in-demand ones on ONBB?
We are currently seeing a lot of dresses being uploaded to the storefront, but have a lot of requests for more table top and decor.
What makes ONBB different from other bridal resale options?
Bridal resale stores, just like most consignment average a purchase at 5% to 10% of the original purchase price or the current condition the items are in. ONBB offers a higher rate for sellers to publish their items for buyers all over the United States to buy. Bridal consignment shops also control the price they offer; where as ONBB gives the seller the control of the value of the product and the money they make on every sale!
You are a bride-to-be yourself, how do you plan to utilize ONBB for your special day?
Dustin and I were engaged on June 16, 2017. We decided to wait until 2019 due to the cost of the wedding, and of course we started this business. Knowing the cost of the wedding was going to be expensive we are always looking for a more affordable option. Both Dustin and myself look at the app daily for newly updated wedding items to see if anything will work for our wedding day, and of course if something comes along we will definitely snatch it up before it’s gone.
