I have dealt with http://www.ebridalsuperstore.com and have corresponded with http://www.netbride.com. Ebridalsuperstore is based in Burlington, NC and has a store they work with called the Bridal Mart. I have actually been to this store in person, and they have some of the Best prices out there. They are also accredited by the BBB. Netbride is also accredited by the BBB. I have talked with them several times,and they have great prices as well.
I ordered my dress from Jay’s Bridal in Gainesville, Fl. They have an actual store and is listed as an authorized dealer for several designers. I bought an Alfred Angelo. With them, if you order your dress online you can get a deep discount for some designers. My dress retails anywhere from $1100 to $1400 and I got it for $760 with free shoes, veil, garment bag and shipping. I was able to call their store and talk with them about my order. They were super nice. They are also listed on as a top store on The Knot.
All 3 of these retailers offer authentic dresses from the designer. Hope this helps!

Hi! I just to my dress from light in the box a few weeks ago. It’s the Portia Degeneres knock off! 😉 Anyways, I am very impressed with the quality ( I did custom measurements). The sides were still a bit too revealing so I took it into my seamstress who added in some flower-type fabric on the sides. The final verdict? LOVE the dress! 🙂
Then, thinking, hey, maybe this made in china dress thing isn’t a bad idea, I proceeded to get another dress (reception) from an ebay seller, gave him my measurements, and the quality was AWFUL!!
Anyways, I enclosed a pic of the dress from light in the box, if it helps!

I bought my dress from a dressmaker off Ebay. I paid less than $50 for my dress and they did a great job. They have really excellent feedback and I was really relieved to see that my dress was not a hot mess. It is a Pronovias knock off. I still have to get it altered because its too big and not form fitting enough but even with alterations will cost wayyyy less than I could ever get a dress this nice and well made.
The first dress is me and the second is what it will look like after alterations.

weddingshoppeinc.com is out of Minnesota. I got my dress at their brick and mortar store, wish I had known about their website earlier.
