    I have not bought any dresses online before.  I saw some of those sites when I was looking for my wedding dress and the thought actually crossed my mind because they definitely are listed for soooo cheap!  But I was worried that maybe it's kind of a knock off of the actual designer, and for myself I wouldn't really mind, but I am probably planning on selling mine afterwards so I definitely wanted the real thing.  I would just be worried of the quality of the dress, like the fabric and stuff, especially when you go to make alterations with it. So for me I would probably only order it from the actual designer.

      Very pretty!!! I love that sash.  I also bought my gown and added a very small sash to it at the bridal store.  When i went to order the dress and and purchase the sash, the sash was $450.00 !!!! There was no way i was spending that on a little piece of fabric, apparently it cost this much because it was silk.  I found this lady on etsy, (whenlovehappens) she is an older lady from CA who makes bridal sashes and hair flower accessories for the day also.  I sent her a picture of the sash, the bridal store actually let me take a picture since I was buying the dress,  and the lady said she could match that perfectly.  She is making me a sash and also a flower to put in my hair that matches the flower on the sash for a total of $82.00 with shipping!!!! She will also allow you to pay 50% of your payment until she is finished with your sash and sends you pictures so you are sure you like it, then you will pay the rest!  Hope this helps!

This is my maid of honor the day we found "The dress"  I plan on adding some kind of sash to it. I really like this one I found from Etsy.com

        Not sure if you are talking about "knock off" or "replica" dresses but there is a great thread about them "post your knockoff questions" this should help answer all your questions about ordering online from a dress maker overseas who does "replica" dresses!

          Another possibility for BM dresses is to rent them online. I have used this website whenever I want to wear a fancy dress but didnt want to pay the fancy pricetag.  Its a gem but not that many people are aware of it.

                  Bulldogs11,

                   

                  What is the sellers name on etsy? I'm interested in a flower for my hair and she sounds pretty reasonable.
