I don’t have any personal experience with this yet, but from what I’ve read elsewhere you need to be careful to check if the dress has already had alterations.  Some bridal gowns do not hold up under a second round of alterations.  Good luck!

I bought my gown through preownedwedding.com but luckily I was close in proximity to the seller so I was able to go try the dress on before buying it. Is this dress used? If its brand new with tags, I don’t see any negatives. And like you pointed out, you have the insurance to fall back on! Just make sure its not a replica, Ive heard of people trying to pass on “designer” gowns that are fakes. Good luck!

is that the original dress or just a replica, as i have seen usually 2nd hand dress sold for around half the original price. if it is too cheap, i will not buy it.
