For a dress that you'll (hopefully) wear only once in your life, wedding dresses can be very expensive, prompting a lot of brides to hunt for ways to save some money. Sometimes, things work out, but other times, the dress can leave a LOT to be desired! These images show some of the worst dresses that brides and bridesmaids have received when trying to save!

If you've ever been let down when ordering a dress online, we'd love to see a comparison of your expectations and the results.

This is really not the same dress. I don't know if the bride asked to have some of the beading removed...but not same dress.

Again, not too bad. Not perfection, but may look great on the right woman.

I don't think the one on the right is a Vivienne Westwood too. Cheap knock-off!

this 1 is not 2 far off of the mark it needs 2 be altered to fit the wearer- most of these just need some alterations and they will be fine

I wish people would just buy dresses that fit their own bodies-- AND they need to have professionals do alterations for them.

I actually think the knock-off dress isn't too bad. I like the idea of the added color too.
