Good Morning America had a segment on this topic on 11-3. They suggested you be very careful when ordering a wedding dress online, especially if it comes from China or another country. When they ordered dresses from 3 different companies in China, the dresses were very inferior; and one dress wasn't even finished. It still had pins in it. The rental idea and thrift or consignment stores are good options.

I am looking to buy my wedding dress online. Can anyone recommend a good online store? I would prefer a store rather than Ebay or similar as I would like to find a style I like and be able to get it in my size. Finding one great dress in the wrong size over and over again will be too frustrating I think.

I actually did get my wedding gown off of eBay, and was VERY happy with it! I, too, was a little concerned about the sizing or it not being very high quality (since I wouldn't be able to see it in person), but I was pleasantly surprised. I'm more of a "full-figured" person, so I didn't have much luck at stores in my area--lots of smaller sized dresses, but not very many dresses I liked in the bigger sizes. So I tried looking on eBay, and found one I loved. I did take it to a seamstress for some alterations, but I paid so little for the dress (about $300), that I didn't mind spending a little extra for alterations. So if you aren't able to find any online stores, you might want to just take a peek at eBay and see what they have. Best of luck to you!
I just ordered and received a dress from Fashion bug, google coupons , I got a 20% off for my dress the total was $57. and change it is not too fancy nor too plain and it is ivory I think that they have other colors as well, I am so happy with it, I don't know your size but I wear an 18 and I worried that the dress would run small but it didn't it actually fits nice with breathing room. I needed my dress because my hubby and I are renewing our vows for 15 years this Sept. We didn't have a real wedding the first time so when he asked me to renew I knew it would need to be done right this time, I'm sooooo excited.
Just Pretty Bridal Inc. on ebay my daughter bought hers from here and was very pleased.
Hi. my future daughter in law just bought hers through The Bridal Online Store.com They were wonderful and very helpful and you get a free tiara of your choice and many of the gowns comes with a matching shawl or purse. The workmanship is marvelous and I's sure can find what your looking. But most important is the dresses are always on sale. They can customize to any person or size. We did a huge search to find this one is the best we could find. Good luck and congratulations! They also have a phone number of 1-800-694-6967

I was looking for the bridalonlinestore.com, but I cannot find it anywhere online any more. I tried to call their phone number, but another company is answering it now. Does anyone know if they changed their name, and how I can still get a hold of them? Thanks a lot for your help.
