    Default Wedding dress help

    Im in need of a wedding dress but i cant afford to spent a lot of money on one. Im skimping on a lot of things because my partner and i have decided not to have an extravagant wedding.
    Does anyone know any online stores that arent dodgy? Doesnt have to specialise in wedding dresses

    I've heard reasonable things about JJs house (Google I think that's what it's called)
    Or speak to a dress maker although I discovered that a dress maker was likely to cost as much as an off the rack gown.
    A couple of friends have bought online. Both were reasonably happy but needed a little alteration done. Which I don't think is unusual.
    I've also heard to buy slightly bigger than you need as these sites are notorious for under sizing and easier to alter a too big dress than too small!
    Also don't go for the most extravagant dress because it's cheap. More to go wrong! Go for simple!

    I have bought dresses from JJ's house (or JenJen House - they are the same) and they have turned out fabulous.

    I got this one

    in burgandy, and it is gorgeous. The fit is perfect, its beautifully lined and boned so very supportive ...

    I bought one off JJ House. Beautiful ! No alterations required. Quick delivery and cheap. Can highly recommend them. Only problem is there are SO many to choose from haha.

    Light In The Box is another good one. After reading a lot of reviews, I was going to order from there, but I ended up getting a dress heavily discounted in a Bridal shop as it was end of season, so it's worth keeping an eye out in stores too.
