The dress, which had a satin dress and criss-cross back, was a showstopper that spoke for itself.
Belita took to TikTok to boast about the moonshot find, sharing clips from the ceremony and with her husband leaving the registry office.
“You bought a wedding dress on Vinted for your civil wedding for €60 (£51.29),” she penned.
“And it looks fire.
“I mean, look at the back.”
The dress had a draped style with two long satin flaps floating down the back to tie it into place.
It comes as mum-of-one Charlotte Pickering scored a stunning Vera Wang gown for £200 on Vinted.
The 29-year-old was left speechless when she tried it on for the first time, documenting the moment on TikTok.
“I think, if it doesn’t fit now, it’s really not far off,” she said.
Charlotte admitted that buying a wedding dress she’d never seen in the flesh was “either a really stupid or really great” idea.
But she was right to take the leap of faith and scored “the bargain of the century”.
Vinted is quickly becoming the most trawled second-hand app, overtaking the likes of Depop and eBay.
However, with greater attention comes greater risk, meaning fraudsters are finding it easier to flog ‘Dolce & Banana’ and ‘Luis Vuitton’ counterfeit items.
In the UK, it is a criminal offence to sell fake or counterfeit goods but that doesn’t stop cyber criminals.
Luckily, there’s still hope.
You can find designer handbags and clothes at budget prices on Vinted with the right skills, an employee for the online marketplace assured.
