Budget Savvy Brides: $5K and Under

Wedding Dresses under 100.00??

Anyone have any ideas? I found this website:


dhgate.com 


They basically make knock-off dresses in China (which I do NOT support, but my budget.. well it has its own mind..) but one of the people agreed to make me a custom gown (so thats not AS bad right? ).


I have heard good and bad reviews about the place, and you pay through PayPal so that makes it a little better, at least you can dispute it. 


Has anyone else used this, or know someone that has? What do you think? Any other ideas on a cheap dress?

I brought my gown of a internet site like Ebay ( im in new zealand) I brought a preworn Essence dress for 85.00 plus shipping. It in perfect condition.


If you happy to go the preworn route your can find some awesoem dresses on internet auction sites.

If you're fine with a dress that isn't a ballgown, I've found several on etsy for under $100.

check Craigslist! My mom has a thing with used clothing so she wouldnt help me buy my dress there, but I found it for $100....we ended up getting it at davids for $700!! It would have been worth it!

I went through dhgate with mine and used seller fionavogue.  If you want to see pictures, look at the post that says something about knock-off dresses.


I was completely unsure about dhgate until a student of mine told me she bought her prom dress on there (it was a poofy ballgown) and with through seller aokstart.  I looked up the pic, and then I told her to see me when I chaperoned prom.  Sure enough, the dress looked as advertised.  I think it's just hit and miss since you're dealing with different sellers.

A friend of mine found a site called Light in the box. We were talking about having nice but cheap Bridesmaid dresses, and this place seems to have everything. I actually found a replica of the dress I want on that site as well.

I highly suggest eBay.  Mine wasn't $99, but I found it for $260 including shipping. It was still $600 in stores.  I know Legentry got her amazing dress from eBay as well.  :)
