Can anyone suggest a spot in Philly that I could find a nice gown?
I hate everything at DB. Trying to keep it cheap. Pref no more than $600 before alterations, assuming that alterations are minor. I’ve looked online, but I’m worried about not being able to try it on and the quality of stuff custom made from China. And YES I know that their all coming from China anyway, but quality material is important to me.
In case it’s relevant, I’m looking for something lace, somewhat unique, makes my butt look fabulous, and is not “poofy.”

@bittttersweet: I purchased my dress from oncewed.com and had an awesome experience. I also looked at tradesy.com and preownedweddingdresses.com. I actually went on in advance and browsed ALL the dresses on those three sites and found the styles I loved in my size. I then went to bridal salons in the area and tried on the dresses. I ended up falling in love with one and then just ordered it from a seller on oncewed.com. It just arrived in the mail yesterday!! Might have been a bit of a hassle, but I got a $2700 dress for $1000. You could also just consider local sellers on those three websites…most brides selling their gowns would be happy to let you see/try them on! good luck!

@bittttersweet: A few of my friends have found gorgeous dresses at Sabrina Ann.
I had a great experience on preownedweddingdresses.com. I bought a sample but tried it on in a local boutique to be sure first.

I bought my dress off the rack and the sample was less than $600 and in perfect shape. So you’re not necessarily stuck only buying a pre-owned dress.
