Hi, i just came across this website after recently getting engaged & i love it, it’s been so helpful but i have a question.. can anyone recommend a reliable website to purchase my wedding dress from? i’m a bride on a tight budget & am looking to save money where i can. there is so many & it really confuses me as to which sites are bad & good, anyone have any personal experiences & photos of their dress they would like to share with me?

Welcome to the bee, and congratulations on your engagement 🙂
Before purchasing online, I suggest looking for sample sales. Also, David’s Bridal sells inexpensive dresses and they are always having some type of sale. There customer service isn’t always the greatest, but if you are on a budget they can be a great option.

Are you looking for a replica? Or someone who can make you a custom dress?
If you’re looking for a replica, you’ll find many post here about that subject.
If you’re looking for a custom dress, I would also suggest Etsy. There are a lot of sellers there with excellent feedback and budget friendly prices. You can also look for or ask around for a local seamstress who can work on your dream dress for a good price.
And like Noritake22 told you, I also suggest David’s Bridal or looking for samples on bridal stores.
Oooh, and last, check out Preownedweddingdresses.com Even if you’re not looking for a used dress, they have tons of sample and new dresses.
Good luck on your search!

i bought bridesmaid dresses from http://www.lightinthebox.com and they turned out lovely
i’ve seen mixed reviews on them but for me it was great! they have tons of bridal gowns on their site – its worth a look.

Ditto on the PPs. Definitely check out sample sales – you never know what you will find!

What is your dress budget? I think ordering online can be tricky and risky, you never know you might be able to find a nice dress in your budget without ordering online

Thankyou alll for your replies. I’m not 100% sure if i want a replica or not. i would like to spend definently no more than $500 on a dress like that would be my absolute limit. i come from a small country town & there isn’t a lot to choose from. i don’t mind if it isn’t a designer label as long as it looks pretty there’s just so many decisions to make. i can see i’m going to be one stressed out bride ’till we say ‘i do’
