Hi everyone =) I’m new to this site but I’ve read lots of helpful posts about ordering dresses online and replica dresses and such!
My wedding’s not until Sept 2012 so I feel I still have lots of time, so I wanted to ask if anyone knows of any discount/warehouse wedding dress sales in the GTA (preferably Mississauga) area??
I’ve heard lots about Elizabeth Stuart so that’s on my list to check out…
Hoping to find something good under $500, otherwise I will look online too…dressilyme.com, etc??
Any advice would be great =)

Dressilyme is a replica site. You might want to check the sites where people sell preowned and sample gowns. Some of the dresses on those sites have never been worn and are being sold by brides who changed their minds about their dresses. The Classifieds section of this site is also a great resource.
The pre-owned sites:
Pre-owned Wedding Dresses
The sample/resale shops:
Church Street Bridal (online and b&m, proceeds go to charity, gets donations from Kleinfeld)
Vows (online and b&m)
Your Dream Dress
Le Dress Boutique (online and b&m)
Encore Bridal (online and b&m)
Fabulous Frocks of Charleston (online and b&m)
Fabulous Frocks of Alexandria (online and b&m)

Some of the replica sites do really great work. DressilyMe is one (I ordered there but I don’t have it yet so I can’t really say I would recommend LOL) also Jasmine Bridal, Light In the Box, and Shades of Pale. Shades of Pale, Jasmine and DressilyMe all have pictures of dresses they have done on their Facebook and they are really good! I think the key when ordering a replica is the expectation that it will be similar to, but not necessarily 100% like the original dress. Also, making sure you are correctly measured is vital. I hope you find your dream dress and we all want to see pics of it, wherever it comes from!!!
