    Thanks again everyone! And I do recomend buying a pre-owned dress(to anyone who hasn't bought their dress yet). The Savings are GREAT! The girl I bought my dress from paid $600, then had all the alterations done (approximately $200) and then drycleaning after (approximately $50) which adds up to her paying around $850 for the dress in the end. I was able to purchase it from her for a very low price of $350, saving more than HALF!!! The brial store in the town closest to me (I live in a very small town, no bridal stores at all) wanted $700 for that same dress.

    As long as the person hasn't worn the dress for a TTD, then they are usually in GREAT shape (and if not the seller usually lets you know). My dress for example only has one small flaw. At the back, there is a zipper closure with a small hook and loop at the very top..well the hook is there but the loop is missing. It's like a 10 cent piece that my seamstress said she could sew on for less than 5 dollars!! Its so simple I could probably do it myself and save the money for a coffee, hahaha..
