Has anyone bought a wedding dress in the US and did they have to pay tax on it when it came in? Any shop names welcome. JS

I haven't bought from US, but most brides on here can expect to pay/have paid up to 30% in customs charges... which usually still results in savings, so shouldn't be too much of a deterrant. Best of luck

hi a kinda sneaky way around paying tax on it is to ask for the company sending it to put "Gift" or "For Repair" on the box - that way you won't get charged! Not that I would ever recommend doing it though bit if definitely works if the US company is open to it... ;)
