I assume you are looking at a seller from China (or another country) that offers dresses at crazy cheap prices. If not, ignore this post. If yes, then read on.

 I researched a lot of the Chinese sellers before I ordered my dress.  I don’t think Aliexpress had good reviews, but I’m not sure.  You should google “aliexpress reviews” and see what you find out.

Also, a lot of the dress pics you find on those sites are on multiple sites.  So, you can look at the sellers that have good reviews and see if they have the dress you want.  I read on here that dressilyme is a good one.

I decided to look on ebay to see if there was a dressmaker with my dress.  There was.  That made me feel a lot better because I knew ebay offered me some protection if things went wrong.

Finally, no matter who you order from, you have to accept that spending that $150 or $250 (whatever) is a gamble.  You may not get what you wanted.  My dress was really well-made and a great price ($150 including shipping), but didn’t look exactly like the picture.  Fortunately, my mom sews very well, and she can make the changes I want.  If you have a resource for getting alterations done affordably, then I’d say it’s a lot less risky.

Look for reviews using Google. If the only reviews that come up are ON that store’s website, there’s a good chance they’re fake or that any bad reviews were removed. If you can’t find ANY reviews, don’t use them.

havent use the site before, you can have a look at 7foxmall.com. a few of my friends have ordered their wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses from there. the dresses are gorgeous. they give a pretty good review for the dress, if not they won’t recommend the site to me. as i am looking to order mine online as well. to save money since i think i will only wear it once. the staff is very helpful. you can even send them a picture of the dress you like and they can make it for you

Those dresses are very close to the same.  The DB ones looks like it has more concentrated rusching at the waist, while the other dress has evenly-disbursed rusching.  I like the dressilyme one better, personally.
