Consumer warning for bides dress shopping

Thursday, November 03, 2011

Here's a consumer warning for anyone who planning a big wedding -- watch out for dresses that are priced too low.

Aiste Ray found the perfect wedding dress, but at $1,300, it was a bit pricy. Then she found a website with knockoff dresses for one fourth the price, but she was so disappointed at what she got.

"I can't believe that this is what came. I mean, it was beaded in black, pearls, and it just made no sense. It looked like a middle school project," said Ray.

Another customer got a dress with the distinctive draping of the design that wasn't finished. It was just pinned in place.

The bottom line for bride on a budget, check out the company before sending in your money and consider buying second-hand dresses online.
