    Help needed, my HTB and I have been together 11 years and have three beautiful children, we going to fiji to elope. Our budjet is tight but still want an amazing wedding dress. Has anyone brought a dress from ebay and was it as good as it sounds.
    Any answers would be great
    Are photos of actual dresses to much to ask.

      There are a lot of girls that have got their dresses on ebay.. One girl got hers from one of those china shops and the lace wasn't how it was supposed to be. She hated it. I guess it just depends on where you get it from.

        I bought a sample sale dress on ebay that I found at a local salon. LOVED it!

          I did not, but I have heard some good and bad stories. Have you looked at Davids Bridal (Are they in AU) they have dresses pretty cheap and they are NEW. Good Luck!

              Another low cost option is to buy a bridesmaid dress in ivory. I saved lots of $$ that way and I loved my dress. I also got another dress off ebay for $50. It wasn't a wedding dress, but more of an evening gown, also in ivory. I wore this for photos before the ceremony, but I think if I hadn't bought the other dress I would have been totally happy wearing the $50 dress. So yea, there are bargains to be had, you just have to get creative! Good luck!

                This is a site on ebay that I keep checking out:

                eBay Store - Your Dream Dress: Monique Lhuillier, Carolina Herrera, Amsale

                Their feedback is excellent, and I have corresponded with them about one of their dresses. It is amazing how much less some designer dresses can be sold for! They told me that if you purchase a dress, you can decide to send it back if you don't like it, and they will send any other dress that you might want to try out at no cost to you for shipping.

                  If your set on buying it off of ebay, my advise is to check the sellers history. I've bought quite a bit off of ebay, and I've only had 2 negative experiences. Both times, I didn't do my homework on the seller. Good Luck!!

                    I bought my dress on ebay (i ended up with two for £150), they both look good but the first one wasn't quite what i wanted, requested so they made me another and I am totally in love with the second one. I have now had it shortened and it looks even better. I've been more than pleased.

                    Here's the thread which shows both of my dresses

                    If you go to page 5, you can see both dresses.
