Off-shore Wedding Gowns

It was brought to my attention today that some  local brides are finding a picture of a lovely wedding gown in Canada that they just love, and they are sourcing it in China because it carries a much cheaper price tag. A recent $2300 gown here in Ontario was found for  a lot  less  in China and if this sounds too good to be true, it’s because it is!

If you are trying to save on a gown’s price- be forewarned that this is not the way to do it.  This is the difference between cost and price. You won’t wind up saving anything and you will be stressed and aggravated beyond belief.

The sage words of advice in a situation such as this one is-  don’t even consider it. Budget expectation  versus reality are two very different things. If you can only afford $999 for your gown, there are plenty of styles in the local marketplace with great service that you will be delighted with.

You won’t save any money by trying to bypass the conventional retail channels. What you will have is a headache trying to rectify a situation that needn’t have happened in the first place.

Trust in your local bridal salons to give you the best price for the budget you have available. These are your neighbours and friends and they want to see you happy and satisfied.

Remember, too, that if you do get that gown from China, who is going to alter it for you? Many shops are not comfortable handling something as special as your gown, if they haven’t sold it to you.

Your wedding day is a day of importance and it is always best to purchase what you know you are getting and that you have some control over the purchase.
