    @Stephville:  I love online shopping, so it would be great to do this. However, I only would if there were significant savings and I could try it on in person first.

    @Stephville:  If that’s the case, then order it and if it doesn’t work out you wouldn’t feel the loss anyway 🙂

    I found mine on Kijiji. The dress was worth around 1200$ originally, I got it for 200$. But of course, I only bought it after trying it on. 

    Is there a way you could try the dress you want at a store first ? Is it from a boutique or pre-owned ? Boutiques will have return policies I guess ?

    I tried to get a replica made, from an American company on Etsy – and it turned out HORRIBLY. SO I ordered a Nataya wedding dress and it is grand!

    @Stephville:  I did!  I got mine from a department store that had free returns, so I could send it back if I wanted… but I loved it.

    If you’re talking like $100, I’d risk it!  More than that and I’d try to try it on first.

    @Stephville:  I bought my dress online. I tried on something similar in shape and almost bought it. But, went home to think about it and saw “the one” online. I didn’t hesitate to buy it and I’m happy I Took a chance. I think a reputable seller makes a huge difference.

    @Stephville:  sweet!  Mine was $120!  It feels so good to get an awesome dress for that price, considering you wear it ONE DAY  🙂

    I bought my dress online! I didn’t try it on first in fact, I didn’t try any other dress on before. I did double check the measurements somewhere around fifteen times though! 

    It was deeply discounted, around 70%

    I bought online a China dress from aliexpress for $134, I am very satisfied, they made it for me by custom measurement. I never tried any dress before, just fall in love with this replica and ordered it. I didn’t regret, my dress is perfect for our Vegas wedding and the price is very reasonable for me. :)))

    I bought mine at preownedweddingdresses.com, and I was very happy. It came from Bridal Gallery in Sioux Falls. I felt pretty confident using the website, and I looked up the bridal salon, but ultimately just took my chances. My dress is beautiful, was in great condition, and half off. I’m really happy that I saved the money and can use it for other parts of the wedding.
