The image didn’t post, but I will give you an honest opinion:

Deals like that seeming too good to be true usually are.  Some people have luck with the deep discount dress web sites, but a lot of people get burned.  These sites advertise knockoff designer dresses, but the fabrics and craftsmanship are often sub-par.

If you’re looking for a cheaper option for your dress, try used wedding dress sites like oncewed.com and recycledbride.com.

@futuremrsfitz18:  I was going to say the same thing. Chances are if you order it, it might not look exactly like it would from a bridal store (assuming they make replica dresses) if you are OK with that then there’s nothing to lose.

You should definitely check at least 5 used dress websites, and if you can’t find it then post it here and other bees can help recommend similar dresses!

@Mrscarkum:  I haven’t heard of that site before, I’ve bought replica gowns from another vendor in China and was pretty disappointed with what I got. I know some other bees have had great experiences though. It’s just a matter of research. I would definitely recommend trying dresses first, so you know the style you want. When you have a dress in mind, you could then upload and ask any bees who may have bought from them what their experience was.

From my experiece, I would do as @MsVoyageur: has suggested and try some recycle gown places first – or keep an eye out for bridal clearances.

Good luck!!

@Mrscarkum Here are the websites I was looking at, and I will probably buy my veil from one of them:

http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com/

http://www.oncewed.com/used-wedding-dresses/

http://www.bravobride.com/

http://www.recycledbride.com/

http://www.projectwedding.com/classifieds

http://classifieds.weddingbee.com/ (in case you haven’t already checked this site!)

And then of course check eBay!! What is the dress you’re looking for?
