Every time I’ve bid for a wedding dress on ebay I always get outbid at the very last second. I’m also a budget bride, and like you, I don’t want my wedding to look like a budget wedding. I’m doing a lot of stuff myself, such as favours, stationary, decor, etc. By making things instead of buying them, you save on cost so much that you can be a little more expensive with the things you use for DIY items, so that they don’t look like they’ve been made on a budget x

I bought my dress on ebay and got an amazing deal.  My dress basically ended up being free after I sold all the stuff that came with it that I didn’t want (petticoat, bra, veil).  The entire group of stuff was new with tags, from David’s bridal, and a current dress that was selling for around $600 or $700 when I bought it.   So I tried it on at DB for size purposes then won it on ebay for an amazing price ($75 plus $30 shipping).

I used to sell on ebay though for a long time and  I was one who focused on the tiniest details as a seller. I am the type that asks a ton of annoying questions of the seller and if I don’t get a response I don’t bid unless it is SUPER dirt cheap anyway.   If I were you I would, going forward, ask to see tags, dress tags, sales tags, etc.  I will pester the crap out of someone if need be to make sure I know what I am bidding on.  A good seller shouldn’t mind your questions.  I am not blaming you for what happened;  ivory and white ARE different and it should have been described accurately, but remember, some people are just clueless.  Heck, before I started dress shopping I didn’t consider ivory and white to be THAT different, you know ?
