Affordable gorgeous wedding dresses

Wedding dresses are one of the BIG headaches when it comes to wedding planning. ALL brides would love to look gorgeous and stunning on their special day with the least minimum fuss of finding the dress whilst, hopefully, matching their budget!

From what I've heard, renting wedding dresses or getting them custom made sure do cost an arm and leg! It can range from RM1,000-3,000 each gowns or even more! Unfortunately, as much as I would like to look beautiful and glorious on my wedding, I, have to be practical with my tight budget RM1,500 and below for about 2-4 gowns (if I need so many). Sounds insane right? and somewhat impossible... but it isn't.

As I've blogged previously about ebay shopping, I actually found one that I like for roughly AUD150 (can be less depending which vendor you go with). So far, that's the only one that has captured my attention. My main concern is whether the quality of the actual dress will look as good as the picture or if it will suit my body type and shape which reminds me, I've got to make a decision by this week!

Yesterday, I stumbled upon this other online site that sells really affordable and PRETTY wedding gowns - Dino Direct. Some of the dresses are awesomely chic and elegant. Taking a look at the prices and positive feedback makes me giddy with excitement.

Now, I can consider buying maybe, two white gowns, though what would I do with the other is anyone else's guess. Check out the prices that I've mentioned below, taken from the site, and you won't believe it yourself! Sounds insanely good to be true.

I am wondering which one I should order and try out. Sometimes, it looks gorgeous on the anorexic skinny models and blinds you to think that you will look as good in it but it might look totally opposite on the actual person wearing it for the wedding especially if one isn't tall and slim like the model!

I seem to fancy tube top styles with sashes...

For those who know me, or might not, what do you reckon I should get?

#1 - Fashionable Long Ruffle Cathedral Empire Bridal Gowns Wedding Dress

NOTE: One thing about this one, it feels so not me, hence, the attraction. Sometimes, for a special occasion like this, you'd want to experiment with something different and dress up a little bit more with some dramatic flair for the pre-wedding shoots. However, I have a feeling that it won't suit me well.

#2 - Taffeta Ruffle Sweep Empire Bridal Gowns Wedding Dress

NOTE: This one reeks elegance and oozes with gorgeousness. The bow at the back adds a cutesie touch though on hindsight, looks a tad out of place in the elegant dress.

#3 - Lace Flowers Sash Court Empire Bridal Gown Wedding Dress

#4 - Ruffle Jarket Court A-Line Bridal Gown Wedding Dress

#5 - Flowers Lace Beading Court A-Line Bridal Gown Wedding Dress AUD138.15

#6 - Ruffle Applique Court A-Line Bridal Gown Wedding Dress

#7 - Belted Ruffle Sweetheart Court Bridal Ball Gown Wedding Dress

#8 - Waist Ribbon Court Bridal Ball Gown Wedding Dress

#9 - Ruffle Layer Waist Bow Sweetheart Bridal Ball Gown Wedding Dress

#10 - Beaded Sweetheart Ruffle Court Bridal Ball Gown Wedding Dress
AUD 98.66

#11 - Elegant Rose Applique Round Neck Mini Bridal Gown Wedding Dress

#12 - Popular Ruffle One Shoulder Court Bridal Ball Gown Wedding Dress

#13 - High Neck Lace Beading Chapel A-Line Bridal Gown Wedding Dress

#14 - Lace High Neck Court Mermaid Bridal Gown Wedding Dress

#15 - Sash Applique Bateau Neckline Chapel A-Line Bridal Gown Wedding Dress

#16 - Chiffon Backless V Neck Wedding Dresses Gown

#17 - Cool Beaded Bracelet Satin Evening Dresses

Arrrghhh.. I made notes for every dress but it wasn't saved when I clicked 'post'... and I am too lazy to retype them.. urghh..

Basically, I am thinking of dress #6, #8 and #10. What do you think?

#6, #8 and #10 which you wanted - I think the aneroxic models look like a pregger in the gown, what more us? lol
I like #2, so simple & elegant for that price.
#5 looks good in front but weird behind.
#13, #14, #15 are also awesome looking! Especially #12, think you will look classy in that with a side swept bun or a croissant, Essy!
#1 will look awesome/dramatic in pre-wedding pictures though the top is a bit "cheap-quality" looking.

The DinoDirect website you mentioned sounds like a scam. Upon reading their reviews, I've noticed a pattern. EVERY 5 star review has terrible grammar errors, which leads me to believe the company is submitting them. I skipped to the bad reviews, and my doubts seem to be proven correct.
