What do people think to getting dresses offline? Would you recommend getting bride and bridesmaids dresses from Amazon or eBay?? I know a few people who have and haven't had any problems just had to get it altered but some people swear against it. I just don't want to be paying over the odds for dresses that are going to be worn once. (They are adult bridesmaids)

Hi have a look on Mixbridal they have a long list of counterfeit companies to avoid. Good luck :)

I got my dress and my bridesmaid dress off ebay from someone who dealt in ex-samples. Mine is by Sincerity. Mine just needs the skirt taking up as I'm only 5ft 3in. Bridesmaid fitted beautifully. I paid £130 for mine and although the tag on the bridesmaid says £118 I actually paid £20.

I think as long as you check their return policy it could work out well x

Hi always check the seller reviews before you order. When my sister got married the dresses we had were £120 in a bridal shop before alterations, we ordered them on eBay and they were £25 each. I will be ordering my bridesmaid dresses online when I come to ordering them.
