This store at Oceanside, California has shabby chic and vintage dresses at really affordable prices. This is not vintage-inspired. It’s the real thing.

Barcelona in Spain is the home of some of the most important wedding gown designers in the world.

A Few Tips on Buying from Etsy Wedding Dress Stores
These tips apply to mostly any purchase you make online, not just Etsy wedding dress stores.
When it comes down to wedding gowns, both online AND offline, you should expect to have alterations done in order to get the perfect fit for you. It is extremely rare that a dress fits perfectly right off the rack or that you do not lose or gain any weight before your wedding.
Check the seller’s feedback carefully. Spend some time reading their comments section and doing some digging. Are there good reviews? How did the vendor handle bad reviews? Was money refunded when appropriate? Contact the seller so you can be sure that this is the right shop for you.
Does it sound too good to be true? It probably is. The average cost of a wedding gown in the U.S. on this day and age ranges from $1,314 to $2,095. Of course, the price highly depends on where you live and what you are looking for. Take all that into consideration and make a judgement call. You can go for the $99 dress, but don’t be disappointed if you were expecting much more than that. Check the reviews. Find out what others say about these Etsy wedding dress stores.
Before ordering, double, triple check the size chart & measurements. Not all manufacturers follow the same pattern. This is great advice: visit a nearby seamstress or taylor and pay them to take your measurements (both in inches and centimeters as you never know from whom you will but your dress.) 😉
Consider the shipping fees and plan ahead for those long shipping times.
Look for shops that show you the gowns for what they really are — look for multiple camera angles, and photos that don’t look like they came out of a catalog.
Time to shop around! Look for the dress you fall in love with, the one that will make you feel unique while fitting your budget. Enjoy!
