The dress is really stressing me out too! I started out with a small budget (that I didn’t think was small) and I have ended up having to tripling it. ughh. I can’t seem to find a dress that I LOVE. I find ones that I like but haven’t found the one I love, yet. Places are pressuring me when I still have 13 months and it’s stressing me out like crazy. So you are not alone in the being over it part. 

As for the dress you recieved, try it on. You may find out you love it. If you don’t, don’t give up and keep looking. You may be able to alter it to something you would like more. I am sure you will find one that you love that will make you feel like a bride!

@Sugaree:  if you don’t like it on.

report the seller to e-bay she can’t sell you something that isn’t the real thing …

get your money back and keep looking.

Depending on where you ladies are, think about checking out a Brides Against Breast Cancer event (www.bridesagainstbreastcancer.org), Church Street Bridal (in Virginia and Toronto), Adorned in Grace (Portland, OR) …

These places operate on a different model than regular bridal shops. The prices are better, and I think you’d have a much more positive experience.

Worth checking out, anyway.

@alishaloo:  +1 about reporting the seller to ebay.


@Sugaree:  File a claim with the card you used(or PayPal if you used that).  When you file the claim, tell the rep that it was not the item as described, and when you contacted the seller for a refund for misrepresentation(aka bait and switch), they told you that you shouldn’t have had such high expectations for such a bargain.  You should get your money back either way there.

I would try to return the dress. Is there any way you can do something to make a little extra spending money, like sell DVDs, crafts, yard sale or something to get more money for a dress?

Definitely get your money back and report the seller for not being clear. Also, take a deep breath and stop freaking out. Especially if you’re open to a “knock off,” sample, or gently used dress you still have time. 


Maybe it’s worth a trip to a bigger city to check our consignment stores. And keep trolling ebay. I got my dream designer gown (that retailed for $4,300), gently used for $200. I’m sure you’ll find something you love.

Fight it on ebay and start over.  Go to a reputable dressmaker and get the dress you originally wanted.  Dressilyme, Fabulous U, Jasmines…they can get your dream dress in your budget.

I’m not sure what style you’re looking for, but if you’re looking for red, this site has some great colored dresses for good prices. http://www.weddingdressfantasy.com/Default.asp.  They have great reviews and can make something to your measurement.  They can custom make anything.  She even has youtube videos up describing some of her dresses.  Inquired about a $13,000 I really should never have fallen in love with and they quoted about $1,200 to make it.  I have a feeling they could do something for you in a much better range.  Just don’t fall in love with dresses only the Kardashians can afford like I did ;).
