Reputable Online Dress Vendors

Pearl's Place: I saved over 50% on my wedding dress here. They are a real store in New Orleans and have a good reputation.

JCrew: lovely simple gowns, full exchanges and returns!

Nordstrom: simple gowns, great price

Preowned Wedding Dresses: Designer dresses at reduced prices. Dresses sold by brides, so be sure to ask for pictures of the labels, etc. to prove authenticity.

RK Bridal: will beat any price (in writing) by 5%. Most other online vendors won't give you a written quote because of this.

If you want information about a specific site, I recommend going on The Knot Boards and searching or posting on the Dress board.


Sure! Many brides find their dream dress for much less on eBay, but if you are buying a designer dress, at any price, always ask to see pictures of the tag and of the real dress. Disreputable sellers will post pictures of the dress on the runway or of other brides wearing it. They may have an imitation of it, or they may not even have a dress to sell!

Some brides use eBay sellers to recreate their dream dress in China or seamstresses here, but make sure you realize that you will not be getting the same dress you tried on in the salon.

Always use a credit card when possible to protect yourself from fraud!
