Question by Princess M: What is your experience with buying a wedding dress on Ebay?
I am on a tight budget for my wedding and am thinking about buying my wedding dress on ebay. What was your experience with this? Were you satisfied? I have never purchased anything on ebay but I was browsing around and found some beautiful dresses that were very inexpensive. Also what is the return policy if I got it and it didnt fit?
Thanks!

Each eBay seller has different policies on returns, etc. I would reserach the seller and ask about the return policies before you bid, then you will know. I would never buy a dress without trying it on first, but that's just me. I would look around your local Craigslist, Goodwill and thrift stores as well, then you get to see the product before you buy. Also, some bridal shops have clearance dresses. And, look into having your dress made. My mom (whose been making wedding gowns and formalwear for ~40 years now) charges $ 35 to $ 175 for a wedding gown based on the style and fabric the bride chooses.

Good luck!

    I bought 2 dresses on Ebay. The first was NWT and I LOVE it! I paid $ 125. The tag says it was 700. And I received it in 3 business days. Only buy from someone with a positive feedback just in case…

    The other dress I bought for $ 86 and I don’t like it. I resold it on Ebay for $ 200!!!! So I got my money back. I had a good experience. It’s not someone who is very very picky though.

    I had also tried on dresses at local bridal shops in my area (David’s Bridal, Alfred Angelo’s and one more) so I had an idea of what my size was and what style I liked on my body.

    I also asked for additional pictures of the dress to calm my nerves.

    Your best chance of success buying a wedding gown on Ebay is to find one being sold by an individual bride. Unfortunately, the majority of wedding gowns on Ebay are cheap knock-offs of designer gowns. They use copyrighted pictures and do the best they can remaking those gowns but what you end up with are crooked seams and zippers and glued on sequins and poorly made flowers. Have you looked into bridal consignment stores?

    I had a tight budget too. I searched for a long time to find a wedding dress. I was nervous about to buy the dress online. Then I got my wedding dress from royalty bridal. All my family and friend said it was a really nice wedding dress. It did not cost too much. I loved it. Maybe you can try it.

    Good Luck!
