Hi can anyone please confirm how much it cost for a dress to be shipped from the USA. I have found a shop in Califormia that will ship my BM's dress but they have said the shipping cost is $150 which I thought was kindof expensive!? Just wanted to get an idea of how much others have paid. Obviously I know NYC etc is nearer for shipping but have no idea of what it would cost to ship even from there. Thanks :thnk :wv

It depends. Different companies charge different amounts. It depends on the size and weight of the dress. You could try emialing a few comanies and ask them.

I priced with three different companies and it ranged from $65 to $90.
