So the Marine Corps Ball for him is on November 14th and I’m trying to find a dress asap. Not really sure where to look. I kinda already have a dress picked out just trying to see if I can find one that’s better/cheaper…So have any of you ladies purchased a dress online before? What are some websites? I know on a facebook group a lot of ladies suggested JenJenHouse but not sure how reliable it is? Thanks in advance!

Any formal event I go to I rent a dress from here. You get to wear an amazing designer dress (I always get a ton of compliments on the dresses I rent) and then you get to return it. Because personally i’ve spent a couple hundred dollars on a formal dress before and have never worn it again.
The dresses start at $50 to rent and go up from there, you get to keep them for 4 days and they send you two different sizes. I have never had a bad experience using this site and I’ve rented probably about 10 times. Even one for my FIs military (Army) dining out events.

@keo290: Can you go to outlets? I my dress is a BCBGMaxazria and I got it at their outlet at Cabazon, CA (I’m assuming you live at camp pendleton?) it was only $50!!! I got a lot of complements at the ball 🙂

David’s Bridal has some really nice special occasion dresses actually and they are very reasonably priced!

Yep, I usually do DB’s. They are rude if you aren’t buying a wedding dress there, but they have a big selection and prices are good.
