I have found the dress I want, but it costs $1200 at David's bridal and I would need $400 worth of alterations... I've looked online for it and can get it pre-owned for $700 CAD plus alterations... Which is also outside my price range ... It's frustrating because I've seen it on David's bridal sample sale for $230 USD but they don't allow Canadians to purchase online samples (unless I'm misreading fine print)... My last resort is getting a Chinese dress from DHGate have it custom made and hopefully cut down on needed alterations.
Has anyone gone this route? Which seller did you use? I've been doing research and realize there are a lot of horror stories out there but I'm really leaning in this direction.
