I am looking for a place to order a dress online. I haven’t been able to find the exact dress I want and I dont’think I will. But i’ve gotten over that. Right now all im interested in is finding a dress. Being that I will only wear it once and for a few hours at that I’m trying to be as cheap as possible. Does anyone have any suggestions of places to order a dress online? Any good experiences?

Ive ordered from jjshouse.com and dressilyme.com so far and am working with jasminesbridalshop.com right now on my wedding dress/bridesmaids.
jjshouse was great, the dresses were stunning, well made and fit like a glove. I got charged over 150 euro for customs on 2 dresses though… Not their fault, but i should have looked into that before ordering.
dressilyme did a dress i was going to wear for my engagement pictures. It was a hot mess. From a far it looks great, but on close inspection the lace wasnt sewn on in some placces, the edges werent finished and it was just sloppy. I could have done a better job myself. I was not happy.
jasmines has been great. They do alot of custom work. I even sketched my own veil and theyre doing it no problem. So far im beyond thrilled to be working with them.
fabulousu.com also has a good reputation and im following the on favebook so i see their dresses every few days in my newsfeed, they look decent.

Have you tried Etsy? I’ve just ordered my dress and the seller has been wonderfully helpful, plus there are thousands of options and most aren’t too expensive

@dv3849: Was your dressilyme dress custom or did you purchase one listed on their site?

@kloppy44: I got my $2400 Enzoani Esme brand new with tags on it for $400 on http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com Brides sell their pre-owned dresses, but so do bridal shops looking to get rid of models, or in my case, ones that other brides ordered but cancelled at the last minute. Deal of the centruy! Even with alterations, it only ended up costing me $650 total! you have to be willing to take a risk though, not being able to try it on!

@kizzeroo: i got a dress that they didnt have on their website. Its hard to photograph the imperfections, but it was a hot mess, the lace isnt sewn down, theres a tonne of loose threads. From afar it looks ok so i may wear it, but im not pleasedwith the quality at all.

@dv3849: I can definitely see what you’re talking about! Although I do agree, it looks good photographed from afar. Thanks for the photos and the info 🙂
