We love this site! It is the perfect solution for brides who would like to save some money on their dream dress that has been lovingly worn only once. When I was searching for my gown, I looked high and low on this website but couldn't find one in my size so I paid full price at a salon. After my wedding, I sold my Melissa Sweet Dora dress on this very site to a gorgeous San Diego bride. She loved my dress as much as I did and even sent me pictures.

All of the top designer dresses are available like this stunning Christos gown....
Happy gown shopping!
