@strawberrymarshmallow:  I would message the seller first and make sure it’s actually Allure instead of a replica! A lot of the replicas are made with low-quality materials and bad workmanship.

Is it a new dress or a used dress? 1/3 of the price seems a bit to cheap…normally it’s around half price or so. I just bought one dress from there, it went perfect, but I bought from a salon.

Definitely talk to the person and I would recommend only looking in nearby areas so you can see the dress in person first. I bought a $5,600 dress on for $2700 and it was in almost perfect condition and needed minimal alterations. I saw the dress first and talked to the girl several times before buying it. It was perfect and I love love loved it!!

I’ve bought two dresses from this website.  Email the seller, find out if it’s a salon or individual seller, if it’s an individual ask to friend them on facebook…this way you can see pictures of her in the dress and get an idea of who you are dealing with.  If you do decide to purchase, ask if they are willing to take returns, and pay through paypal so you are covered if anything goes wrong.  Good Luck, I was so nervous when I bought my first dress from the site, but it went well, and it was from Canada…the 2nd one I drove 4 hours to try the dress on before buying, I recommend that if she is near by 🙂

Also, if it’s coming from Canada or international you will have to deal with customs, they held my dress for a day and I had to pay a $45 fee to clear the border, but I also had to track down info on the dress for FedEx border control.

I bought my dress for 600 on preowned… the dress retails for about 1200 and the preowned came with the veil I wanted and the jacket …. I was lucky though.  The seller lived near family so they went and took pictures of the dress for me.
