Since my fiancee and I haven't chosen a location, I've only been glancing at some websites for wedding dresses.

One site which will probably shock you is Aliexpress.com (yeah I know probably not a good idea). Anyways I've been eyeing this one dress that cost less than $100. I'm only considering it cause there were a lot of great reviews and pictures on how amazing the dress is. Since I'm not planning to have a big wedding and I'm a very low maintenance bride I may go with it. Just need to go to the store and find something similar to see if it suits me .

Another site I was looking at is Asos.com . I've purchased from Asos numerous times and they are reliable. But I've never purchased a wedding dress. Their selection is very small but it changes from time to time. The prices aren't too bad either.

Once I've decided on a dress I'll let you know where I end up getting it.

Tradesy is marketed as a site where individuals can sell the clothes from their closet. So, I would expect the dresses to be pre-worn.

ok thanks for the info. We are having a small wedding as well, 20-25 people and we dont want to spend more on a dress then the entire wedding! But I still want to get her something nice to wear. We went to a store that you have to have fitting ect, they start at $1000+, we just cant do that.

also, which dress were you looking at on aliexpress?
For our wedding, we were thinking about 30 people. Same here I don't want to spend $1000+ for a dress but yes I understand about wearing something nice as well!

The dress I'm considering is
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2015-Ho ... ebdf07728b

This was the only dress on Aliexpress that has the most comments and the most pictures. I'm just not sure if this type of dress would suit me so thats why I haven't purchased it. If you do end up ordering it make sure you give a minimum of a month for it to arrive! If you go on aliexpress just type in wedding dress and sort if by orders and you'll see how many orders the store received. Would also recommend maybe going a little bigger when purchasing just in case, cause I don't know how sizing works over there. At least if it's a little bigger you can do some alteration to fit the body.

ok thanks. We will look into aliexpress. I have a feeling at some point we are just going to have to risk it and buy one from the site and hope it works out. we have 6 months till the wedding, so we have time.

What if you went used? There's a lot of Facebook groups for wedding stuff and I see dresses up there all the time, under $1k.
At least you could get away with trying it on too.

Pretty sure David's Bridal is the go-to for most frugal brides although the prices really vary.

Scarborough, ON M1L 2L9

Not a Toronto store but Modcloth has some decent options if she likes vintage style dresses. It's USD but they often have sales (including 20% off for newsletter signup). There are also lots of real life bride photos and reviews.
