  • My experience with St. Anthony's was absolutely delightful! They have a huge selection of lightly used dresses, all for a fraction of the list price. Only drawback is that they have a fairly stringent return policy - no returns allowed, only exchanges. They also have accessories - I got a beautiful cathedral length veil for a great value as well!
