    I have found a wedding dress that I really like in a wedding store.  I looked up the style number on the internet and found websites which sells it much cheaper. Has anyone ever bought their dress online?

      I am also looking at this. I want a short wedding dress and it just seems like theres more variety online than in the wedding dressses.  I'm nervous tho because I'm not sure if it will fit right or if I'll like the material and such.  Let me know what you decide and Ill do the same. My weddings fast approaching so I need to make a decision soon.

        This is what I did. I fell in love with a maggie dress here in Canada then I went online and found a bridal store in Pennsylvania that was selling their sample for 1/3 of the price. I was soooooo nervous because: 

         

        1. It's a sample and I wouldn't able see the condition of the dress til it got here, but the owner assured me that it was in good condition.

        2. They asked for my CC info over email... and I gave it! In hindsight, I would have called them and given it over the phone but I just couldn't wait to get my dress.

         

        It came a few weeks later and it is as perfect as can be. The owner was amazing to deal with and I'm so happy I got my dream dress for a fraction of the price. If you're getting it from a real online store that does online sales, I wouldn't be too worried. Best is try to find some reviews on the particular store and see what other people had to say.

         

        Here is where I bought mine http://diamondsandla...ly-sample-sale/

        For anyone else interested in buying samples, they have a list of samples they are selling and update this regularly. Mine is the RD1044 at the top of the list that is now crossed out :D

         

        Good luck!

          Thanks for all  the advice! I looked and my dress wasnt there unfortunately. 

          This site here is selling dresses for next to nothing and it just seems to good to be true!

            The dresses on dhgates are knockoffs. Take a look at the knock off thread in the dress forums to get an idea of what you can get.

            The dresses will never be exactly the same as the original but the prices are great and you can end up really happy with your dress if you understand what you're getting into. :)

              Thank you! I will have a look.  The prices are great but I absolutely love the dress and don't know that I would love it just as much if its not quite the same.

                That was my problem too. I had already tried on the real thing and it was made and fit so well that I don't think I could be satisfied with a knock-off version. Used dresses are another option that you could consider. :)

                  I ordered mine through Netbride.  It was about $300 cheaper than a bridal salon here, but still a designer original.  It should be in tomorrow, but they were good to deal with.  Also offered free shipping and a credit on shoes/veils/favors!

                   

                  www.netbride.com

                   

                  Just email them for a quote and they give you all the details.

                      I'm pretty much stuck with buying mine online, since no stores around here carry what I want. Though, good idea would be to go and see if you can try on any other dress by the same designer, as sizing and fit is usually the same for all of the dresses by the same designer.
