try http://www.lightinthebox.com I ordered a bridesmaids dress from them and it was great quality, just try to pick one that people have commented on to make sure and sometimes they post pics! they let you order it in whatever color you would like and have a lot of ball gown options for under $400, hope this helps πŸ™‚

I also used light in the box ans was very pleased! I was nervous becuase they wouldn’t take a return but when I got it I was so happy!

PS the first gown is identical to mine but I am wearing white and the second dress is stunning! wonderful taste πŸ™‚

What about something like this:


It’s $549, So a little over budget but it’s an Australian site and you can order any dress in any color in any size πŸ™‚

Here is the link if you wanna look: Link

I bought the maggie sottero winona dress in an incredible ruby color from weddingdressmart.com and it came out beautifully (they even put in pockets!). That being said, after reading all these reviews of the various chinese companies, i think it turned out so well because it is a very simple design. The dress, including shipping, was only about $200. Sorry I don’t have any pics of me in it, but picture this in red with a cream sash. I’ll try to put up pics when I have them.

Have you thought about looking at prom dresses? I found a few that are sort of similar from Deb.

my first impression is that you are really going to be hard-pressed to get that much gown for under $400.  that said, you can get quite a bit of dress for not too much money (probably more than $400, unless you want to go the chinese replica route…and for that much detail and complexity, i would not recommend it, personally).

have you checked this site out?  supposedly they can do all their gowns in just about any color (they’ve got like 60 colors on their chart, including a few dark red shades).  most of their gowns seems to be in the $600-750 range, which is a bit out of your price point but still quite reasonable.


here is their color chart.  i would recommend going through ALL the dresses, even the ones listed in different color categories than you’re looking for, because those are just the colors the gowns happen to be photographed in.  their “gothic wedding gowns” section has a lot of intricate ballgowns.
