Buying Your Prom Dress on Etsy

If you have no idea what the wonderful of Etsy is you must have been living under a rock because it is such an amazing place to go browsing for things you never knew you needed!

When it came to buying my prom dress I couldn’t find anything I wanted in highstreet shops or bridal shops so I took to Etsy. My favourite thing about buying a dress on Etsy was the choice, long or short, embellished or plain, red or blue, the colour and detailing choices are never ending. There is also the option, on a lot of dresses, to have it handmade specifically to your measurements meaning it shall be the perfect size for you straight away. (However, for mine I got it bigger, just in case.) The dresses may be slightly more expensive but you’re almost guaranteed not to have the same as someone else. I thought I would find some of the best shops to order prom dresses from so you can have look around.


WishDress is where I got my dress from, I got this one, the dress arrived before it was meant to and other than being too big (which I wanted it to be,) it was perfect! A couple of other dresses that were nice but not for me were the Champagne Prom Dress and the Turquoise Applique Short Prom Dress.


Less of a selection than WishDress, however, most of these are under $100/£65 so are on the more affordable side of Etsy. For the more sparkly type of dress the Sweetheart Neckline with Bead Work is perfect, however, if you’re looking for more plain dress the A-Line Sweetheart Neckline Dress is pretty too.


Dresses under £100 here, mainly floor length ones, and gorgeous ones at that! I’m not usually a fan of yellow but the One Shoulder Prom Dress is something I can see myself wearing, also this Royal Blue Dress with Flower Applique, and last but not least this Mint Green Simple Prom Dress With Beading.


This shop has over 500 different styles of dresses to choose from in all different colours imaginable. They mainly sell quite vintage looking dresses in champagnes, plums, corals etc, the dresses are on the more pricier side but look so elegant and sophisticated. My favourite of them all is a whopping $209.99/£133.55 but when you see the detailing of the beading you’ll understand why. It’s the Deep V Back Sheer Beading Prom Dress.

I hope that these shops might help your searching for your dream dress, if not just search Etsy there are so many different ones to chose from, and if all else fails, many of the shops do custom design dresses as well!
