Hmm, I’ve heard of Bestbridalprices but not the other.  I am definetely for the idea of buying a gown online if it means saving a good amount of money.  Here’s a list of the online stores I’ve checked into buying my gown from:

DoriAnne Veils
RK bridal
Pearls Place
Lee Philip

Netbride has gotten rave reviews from many brides, but unfortunately they don’t carry my gown(Casablanca).  Pearls Place offered the best price, and someone please correct me if I’m wrong, is the only place of all those that is an authorized dealer of the designers they carry.  If you are really weary of ordering online, maybe try and negotiate with the bridal shop you found your gown at to see if they might lower the price – you never know!  Good luck, I hope this helped!

H3ll Yes you should… I ordered my reception dress(watters bridal capri/2042b) from netbride and saved almost 40% – Would I do it again?  YES! 

(p.s.- Netbride.com has lowest price guaranty… I shopped around for nothing – cause they did in fact the lowest price)

i ordered my maggie sottero dress from best bridal prices. they are legit and have great service. i also love the fact that i got a free veil and shoes. my dress arrived in less than two months and came with a maggie sottero certificate of authenticity. as melbride said, allow enough time for shipping!

Did anyone have problems with wrinkling during shipping or anything like that?

I realize it’s not a wedding gown, but I did purchase my bridesmaid dresses online. I don’t know much about the particulars you are looking for, but I do know one thing that really helped was calling the authorized boutiques and dealers looking for one that had the style number I wanted. Then I took some of my maids and they tried it on in the store. I would really recommend doing this. That way you get a feel for what it is like to walk, sit, dance, etc in your dress and how it fits so you won’t be buying your dress "blindly". Hope that helps.
