Anyone have any input when it comes to wedding dress sites? Found one on dress afford which has mixed ratings wish has horrible ratings and hebeos which is mixed again. I feel like driving to PHX is better but budget is not so good n on top of that gas prices suck now.

    Would you consider used, like from Poshmark, Tradesy, PreOwnedWeddingDresses, StillWhite, NearlyNewelyWed, StillWhite, OnceWed?

    For new, Iʻve been loving the options on Alamour The Label and Lulus Weddings.

    I would do preused only I was going to do custom measurements on a site n preused would have fit someone else. I have no idea what size to get.

    I worked in bridal for three years, I'd be happy to help you with figuring out sizing!

    Definitely look at Lulus Weddings (under $200 options), use their size chart to get close, and then you could maybe have a seamstress fix little details for you.

    For wedding gowns, you need three measurements- bust, waist, and hips. I can explain more how to take your measurements, but then for each dress, we'd want to look at where your measurements fall on the size chart (typically people fall into two or three different sizes) and depending on the dress, where there's some wiggle room (for a ballgown or aline, hip measurement doesn't matter as much; for mermaid it matters a lot, open back can mean the bust measurement can go a size smaller, etc), and figure out your size from there.

    That's actually really convenient if you're shopping pre-owned, you won't need to worry about length! Wedding gowns are typically scaled for someone who's 5'10". I am actually 5'10, with a long waist and torso, and all the gowns I've worn (for work not for weddings lol) have hit the right spot on my waist. Do you have an idea of what style you're looking for? Have you seen any dresses on here or pinterest that you liked?

    Looks a lot like the Sophia Tolli "Tilda." Here's one on pre-owned wedding dresses for $585 in a size 8: https://www.preownedweddingdresses.com/dresses/view/355984/sophia-tolli-tilda-y21448-size-8

    Adding a belt or flower is easy, you could do it in any color. I can personally vouch for the quality of Sophia tolli as a brand

    That being said, a lace fit and flare with a corset back shouldn't be too difficult to find, there are lots of pretty options! Maggie Sottero and Sophia Tolli are my go-to brands for corset backs
