I’m a two dress bride, so I understand.  Could you post the picture of your dress or of you in it? I think online is the only place you could get a dress for under $300…a lot of girls have had success, I’m just not sure which online site they have ordered from.  I would do a search on here for online wedding dress stores and see what posts you come up with!

If you really want a lace dress I would be hesitant of having one custom made by an Ebay seller or other online resource.  I have seen and heard that the lace can be pretty bad.  Maybe you could get one made in a different fabric?

I don’t have any experience with any online stores other than Netbride.com.  They sell authentic designer dresses at a much lower price.  If you can find a dress that you that normally costs around $500, you may be able to get it from Netbride for around your budget of $250.  You can check the list of designers they carry on their website, although I think they carry additional designers that they don’t post.

Hey Johnsgirl…I am also a two dress bride.  You have some time so start shopping around, and post  your dress for sale immedietly if you are serious about selling it.  You may feel better once it is sold, but you should definetly get something you feel great in.

One of my girlfriends also on a budget ordered her dress from this website…


she was soooooooo pleased with it. the only suggestion is to measure exactly, b/c that is how they will make it. No returns though.

Also keep checking out davids bridal sales…something may come up for you. They also have GREAT sales on their online only dresses.  AND you can return them unlike in the store.

Best of luck!

an all lace dress is going to be more expensive than a regular, more simple dress… either that or if you want it for a low price it is going to be low quality. So keep these considerations in mind when you take a decision..

Good luck!

I would also go some place and try on dresses similar to what you’re thinking of getting before you sell the dress you have and get something else.  A lot of times people think they want lace but once they see it on them, hate it (or vice versa).  It would be a shame to give up what you have now to find you don’t like what you get later.

Also, not everyone has the “this is the one” dress moment…so if you feel good and pretty in the dress you have, don’t give up on it just cuz you didn’t have that feeling.

Good luck!
