Hey, I ‘m so confusing now! I intend to buy my wedding dress on line, maybe from Asia. There are so many gorgeous dresses on line and I want them all. Because their prices are not very high, I plan to buy more than one dress as well as the bridemaid dress on line. But my sister thinks it’s not a good idea. She suggests me buy a real good quality and designed dress insted of those cheap ones. She believed cheap things are not good. Is she right? Any chances cheap things with good quality? Any one who have the experience buying dress on line? Could you recommend some good reputation on-line supplier and share your stories? You will do me a great favor! Thanks

A lot of people have a ceremony dress, and then a reception dress, usually because the ceremony dress is big and uncomfortable and hard to dance in. However, if you are on a limited budget, I wouldn’t cut my budget in half to get two dresses. For me, I spent the majority of my budget on “the dress” that I absolutely loved. If I decide to get a reception dress, I will end up getting a white party dress from BCBG or something for a much smaller chunk of change. I don’t have experience with the online dress stores, but with something like that, I think you would get what you pay for. I suggest at least trying some dresses on in person, because some designers may be more affordable than you think. If you still can’t afford it, then do a lot of research on the online dress shops first. There are some threads on here where people have gotten lovely dresses online, so just search for them (however I think there are also some horror stories, so just be careful). Good luck!

I always perfer quality over quantity.
You can sometimes find top designers’ dresses on the preowned and sample sites for very reasonable prices. Some of the “preowned” sites are used by brides who change their minds about their dresses…so some aren’t even worn yet. 🙂
The pre-owned sites:
Pre-owned Wedding Dresses
The sample/resale shops:
Church Street Bridal (online and b&m, proceeds go to charity, gets donations from Kleinfeld)
Vows (online and b&m)
Your Dream Dress
Le Dress Boutique (online and b&m)
Encore Bridal (online and b&m)
Fabulous Frocks of Charleston (online and b&m)
