I found my 20 th year vow renewal dress at lulu.com. It was on clearance for $38 and it was gorgeous! They have some beautiful gowns check them out. The seamstress said the fabric was so beautiful it could have been a $500 dress easily.

Try Ebay. A lot of bridal salons will sell their overstock and samples cheap on Ebay. It’s easy to find bridal informals.

I got the dress for my 20th for $85, it was Eden Bridals. The dress for my 15th was $35, it was Venus Informals. Both were purchased from bridal salons clearing out inventory on Ebay.

TrueLove407 :  It will take you some time to search.  I search on different terms: “Wedding dress,” “wedding gown,” “bridal gown,” “vow renewal.” Be sure to choose the Wedding and Formal Occasion category.  

Regarding the bad copy issue, the first thing you should do is find the “Item Location” box on the left side of the screen and click “US only.” Meaning, the dress is being sold from an address in the US. That eliminates the cheap Chinese dress manufacturers.

Second, I find that the salons will take their own photos of the dress being sold. They won’t use stock photos. 

Third, salons will usually write in description of the listing where their brick and mortar shop is located. For example they will write something like: “About Us: We are XYZ Bridal proudly serving brides from our store in downtown Philadelphia. We are located at 9562 ABCD Street in Philadelphia.”  You can then Google the salon’s name/address to verify.

Four, check the seller’s feedback to see what buyers are saying.

Edit: also search on “wedding dress NWT” NWT=new with tags
