    Hey missies I have selected my wedding dress last week and I really love it very much. The problem is that it has exceeded my budget too much. Although I have contacted several stores that sell the same style, all of them have the similar high prices. So I spent some time searching from the internet. And luckily, I found the duplicate dress from one online bridal shop. It will only spend me about $300. The dress is really beautiful, but should I buy it online? Any thoughts on this would be really appreciated. Here is my loved dress: http://www.inwedding...tyle-bc133.html

    I think you just need to determine if going over budget on your dream dress is feasible and worth it.  My dress luckily was under budget, but I was prepared to go a bit over budget if my dream dress was a bit more money.  Is there anywhere else you could cut to cover the extra budget.  I had considered ordering a dress online but personally know a few people who have and in the end they went and just spent the money on the real dress after receiving their online dress.  They didn't compare.  However, there are brides on here who have ordered online and had luck.  I guess you just need to determine if you love it that much and if its worth paying a bit extra for it.

      I had the same dilemma with you when I was choosing my dress. Like JayKay says, lots of girls have had success ordering duplicates but since I had tried the real one on I was afraid that the duplicate would never compare. 


      I decided to look for used dresses being sold by brides which cut the price in half.. now the problem was finding my size! In the end, I found a bridal shop in Pennsylvania that has a list of sample sales on their website and was ecstatic to find my dress in my size listed there for 1/3 of the full price. They shipped it to me and it arrived perfectly. There is just a bit of stain where the neckline is but I should be able to clean that up and even if I don't, it's so minor that no one will even notice. 


      I hope you can find your dream dress. Good luck!

        Hey Shanon,


        My sister's co-worker gave me this website that she ordered from http://www.netbride.com/ . She said she was happy with their service and the dress arrived in a very good condition. After hearing her experience I am ordering from them and hoping it all goes well.

        Good luck!
