    I am on a budget as much of us are.....I went to David's Bridal and havent found anything there I like. BUT........I like so many online.

     

    As we all know, some things look fantastic on others, then we put it on on our bodies and YUK...what happened.

        Hey Nemmerz.  I first suggest you go and try on dresses for style and what works for you.  Tons of brides have their eye on dresses and when they try them on they see that its not what they expected.  I know there are a lot of brides on here that have had great experiences with ordering gowns online.  I say its worth a shot.  Also search and visit the huge "knock-off wedding dress" thread on here.  It was a great help to me.

          I agree with eholt.  Do some research shopping and find out the size and style that fits and looks best before going online to purchase if that's what you are going to do.

           

          I wouldn't blindly buy a dress online unless I had the opportunity to try it or something similar on first...

           

          Once you know exactly what you are looking for, then shop the deals on the web....!

            I can understand your hesitate as there are so many mixed comments on shopping online, I selected the reviews of InWeddingDress.com and then I found this blog for your reference:  http://bridalbudget....ddingdress-com/, customers gave their feedback and uploaded almost everything including photos of their gowns’ package. Good luck!

                I bought mine from inweddingdress.com and I LOVED it. I am a plus size gal and it was made to MY measurements...a custom job that they did a wonderful job at. If you are a budget bride or a women not having daddy pay and it's all coming out of your pocket and you don't wanna be hosed on a one day wear. I say go for it- Mine is so wonderful!  I love it. :)

                  That's really good advice to go in a store to try styles on before buying online. When I went dress shopping I had an idea in my mind about what I like and don't like based on what I have seen online, and I ended up not liking the styles I liked on models on me! I ended up with a style I didn't think I'd like.


                  Happily married on June 11th 2011 to the best husband in the world!

                      Hey NEMMERZ, looks like you’re confused by our suggestion… 

                      The dress looks exactly like it does on the picture. The material is great quality and it is super comfy.

                      I wanted the straps different than the picture. I wanted more fabric used on the straps, and then I wanted them twisted, so it looks like a rope. They made the straps exactly like I wrote I wanted them.

                      The fit is perfect. I’m amazed that they got it so correct from a few measurements. For the price, you can’t get anything better.

                      You can check out their photos from customers for more inspiration

                      Hope you can find your ideal gown!!!
