Buying your wedding dress online

For many brides, wed­ding dress shop­ping is its own expe­ri­ence – try­ing on dif­fer­ent styles with loved ones to help and guide them. Yet, as bud­get-friend­ly wed­dings become more pop­u­lar, brides are turn­ing to online stores for their dream gowns.

Buy­ing a dress online not only means find­ing a great gown at a dis­count but also gives you ample time to explore var­i­ous design­ers and styles, regard­less of location.

Despite its ben­e­fits, online dress shop­ping isn’t with­out risks. So, for con­fi­dent shop­ping, read our 5 tips for buy­ing your wed­ding dress online!

1 — Com­pre­hen­sive Research is Key 

When it comes to select­ing a wed­ding dress online, there’s an abun­dance of options avail­able. Ensur­ing a suc­cess­ful pur­chase involves thor­ough research and ensur­ing the cred­i­bil­i­ty of your cho­sen online store. The more com­pre­hen­sive the infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed by the online store — cov­er­ing prod­uct details, visu­als, social media pres­ence, con­tact details, and cus­tomer reviews — the more reli­able it typ­i­cal­ly is.

2 — Embrace Inquiry 

Don’t hes­i­tate to seek assis­tance even when shop­ping online. Just as you would with staff in a bridal shop, reach­ing out to the online store with your queries about buy­ing a wed­ding dress is a smart move.

3 — Under­stand Siz­ing Information 

Although you can’t phys­i­cal­ly try on dress­es online, gath­er­ing accu­rate siz­ing infor­ma­tion is cru­cial. Start by gath­er­ing your own mea­sure­ments, and then refer to the web­site’s siz­ing chart to under­stand the specifics for each dress size (e.g., 4, 6, 8, and so forth).

4 — Iden­ti­fy a Trust­ed Alter­ations Expert

Almost every cus­tom-made wed­ding gown requires some lev­el of alter­ation, regard­less of whether it’s pur­chased online or from a phys­i­cal store. Find­ing a rep­utable tai­lor or alter­ations shop near you can sig­nif­i­cant­ly boost your con­fi­dence in the dress’s fit.

5 — Order Well Ahead of Time

This advice holds impor­tance whether you’re buy­ing a wed­ding dress online or from a brick-and-mor­tar retail­er: avoid last-minute rush­es. Bridal labels gen­er­al­ly require 4 – 6 months for pro­cess­ing, man­u­fac­tur­ing, and ship­ping. While expe­dit­ed rush” orders may be pos­si­ble at an extra cost, it’s pru­dent to place your order well in advance of your wed­ding day to accom­mo­date any need­ed alterations.

By heed­ing these essen­tial tips, you’ll be well-pre­pared to embark on your online wed­ding dress shop­ping jour­ney with assur­ance, ensur­ing that your dream dress becomes a reality.
