When planning a wedding, finding the best deal is often on a bride’s priority list. Therefore, it can be tempting to buy your “dream dress” online for only a fraction of the original cost. However, if you go this route, your so called “dream dress” could turn into a disaster.

Many online websites advertise designer gowns at extremely cheap prices. The websites look legitimate. You see the exact same designer photos of the dress you desire. They sometimes “say” they offer refunds. They may even guarantee quick turn around. Sounds too good to be true, right? Maybe that’s because it is.

For the past few years, brides all over the country have been desperate to find their dream designer gown for only pennies, making them the bait of these fraudulent wedding dress designers. Too often, a bride will decide to buy online and when the dress arrives, she is left speechless. Not a good speechless, but a bad speechless, because the dress that showed up on her doorstep two weeks before her wedding was not the dress she ordered. This has become such a huge problem that major news stations have reported on this issue, including CBS and INSIDE EDITION.

These websites that offer designer gowns, often are designers of knockoff dresses that are made with cheap material and no resemblance of designer gowns. Legitimate wedding gown designers do not sell online, but only sale through retail. You are safer visiting bridal salons, instead of buying online. In fact, many designers include information on their websites about authenticity, as well as a list of retailers who sell their gowns.
