So after some unfortunate experiences with DH Gate (the first dress that arrived was HIDEOUS and I was unable to get a refund... It looks like a quinceaÃ±era dress. So chock it up to a loss of $150 if I can't resell it. I was able to cancel the second dress).
Third time is the charm???
I ordered again, this time from babyonline (which has had great reviews on this forum) but began to get very anxious as my wedding is a month away and if this one didn't turn out, I had no plan B.
FINALLY yesterday I found a Vera Wang (white collection) for $250! On David's Bridal. Simple but at least I can be sure of quality in case my other gown doesnt turn out.
In all, I spent $550. If I all goes well, I sell the first dress and the other one I ordered from dh gate is gorges so I can two different dresses, for a total of $400. Worst case, I only wear the Vera for a total of $550.
I am so happy, I was really stressing out about the dress situation and am glad to have that off my chest.
