I am looking at purchasing Alfred Sung #D658 dress for my bridesmaids. I have 4 bridesmaids and one of them have tried it on. It’s a perfect fit and looks great. I was lucky enough for it to be the exact colour in the bridal store.
I live in Australia and this particular dress is approx. $350 from local bridal stores. I can buy this dress online from either RK Bridal or Best Bridal Prices for almost half price.
I wanted to know if any Brides/Bridesmaid has recently purchased from either of these online stores please share stories of success or failures.
I am hoping if I have my Bridesmaid try the dresses on and they are a great fit, I will be ok and there shouldn’t be any issues. I am concerned about the dresses being replicas, which I don’t think they are.

RK Bridal in NYC on 39th street is a real brick and mortar store. I didn’t wind up getting my dress there, but I went there when I was looking (in 2009) and tried a bunch on and it was a 100% legit place. They have good prices since it’s huge, like a warehouse and is very no-frills. I don’t know if there are imposter websites, but the site is https://www.rkbridal.com and I would feel totally confident ordering from them.

I know some website ‘claim’ to make original dresses but are cheap and nasty replicas. If I was paying $20 for a dress there might be cause for alarm… but when I can get 2 dresses for the price of one in Australia it’s worth looking into.

I’m considering getting my Alfred Sung BM dresses from http://www.weddingtonway.com – not sure who would have the best price after shipping, but it is a legitimate place to buy dresses- good luck!

BestBridalPrices is also a brick and mortar store, Frew’s Bridal in St. Louis. Both them and RK are completely legitimate authorized retailers who sell for less online since they don’t have to stock the dress and a sample, take the time to serve you in store, etc.

I’ve heard that Best Bridal Prices is legit and have also looked up RK Bridal while in NYC. Both should be fine. You can also try weddingshoppeinc which is also a brick and mortar store. I found their prices to be among the cheapest.

My wedding dress is from RK Bridal (the physical store in NYC) and I couldn’t be happier with the experience!
