Although there is nothing even remotely close to the experience of exploring fancy bridal boutiques

and trying on elegant and exquisitely made designer wedding gowns, it’s a good idea to have an

option of buying a wedding dress online ready.

You might feel apprehensive with the whole process of shopping online, especially a dream wedding

dress, but the truth is, it isn’t unusual to see brides-to-be going online to buy their fancy wedding

dress. The process, in fact, is a lot simpler and quicker than going to different boutiques in person! It

is, however, vital to make note of a few Do’s and Don’ts for buying a dream wedding dress online!

Below mentioned are a few pointers to keep in mind while buying a dream wedding dress online!

#1 Take Online Reviews Seriously

Reading reviews online will give you a first-hand information on a particular dress. There are plenty

of places such as Amazon, Ebay and Etsy where you can get honest reviews of a designer. These

reviews will assist you in making wise decisions in selecting your dream wedding dress online. But,

ensure that you look carefully at the negative reviews especially, and don’t let these negative reviews

fret you. While reading the reviews, consider if there is a misunderstanding or a typo error; however,

always go with the majority of the reviews to be on the safer side.

#2 Give Your Designer Enough Time

One ridiculous mistake you must avoid is of ordering your dress last minute. Ensure that you give

enough time to your designer to stitch your dress well in advance in order to avoid last minute

commotion. Ideally, your wedding dress should reach you at least a month prior to your wedding.

That way, you are ensured that your dress is right with you on your wedding day.

While ordering your dress online, it is advisable to consider a lot of pertinent elements such as

shipping time, schedule of the designer, and so forth in the mind. Besides, having the dress ready

early on will leave you with an ample amount of time to select your veil and other accessories for the wedding.

#3 An Effort To Save Money, Think Again!

If you, like many other brides-to- be, think that buying a dress online will help you save money, think

again! Most of us get married only once in a lifetime, so it better be a pristine affair. For instance, if

you fancy a designer wedding gown for your big day, but the dress is going beyond your budget,

then don’t look for a vendor who will copy the style and get it for you under your budget. Firstly, it is

morally wrong, and secondly, the design will never be exactly the same as the original piece.

Since the original dress is made by an expert, it is hard to copy an expert’s work. Besides, who

knows, you may even end up spending more money in the process of copying the original dress.

#4 Be Very Mindful Of Your Measurements

Another vital aspect of buying a wedding dress online or any other dress for that matter is, providing

accurate measurements to the designer. Quite understandably, a few of us don’t like to measure

ourselves; however, it’s time to put an end to the discomfort, and actually be honest about our sizes.

Don’t give your measurements while you are intensely holding your breath for the tummy to suck in!

The point is, give honest measurements if you want your wedding dress to feel comfortable and

beautiful. You will need three measurements – waist, hips, and bust. Getting all these three

measurements right will ensure a seamless fit for your wedding dress.

#5 Lastly, Be Aware Of The Return Policies

Ideally the dress should fit you perfectly well. But, what if the dress that you receive doesn’t fit you

well? With the objective to remain prepared for such unpleasant scenarios, it is viable to know the

return policies in advance. Some wedding dress designers’ shops don’t have a no-return policy as

the dresses are custom made, whereas some designers have a limited return policy.

Regardless of the matter, ensure that you fully comprehend the return policies before buying the

dress online. In addition, ask as many questions as you have on your mind pertaining to your dress.

Don’t feel shy or reluctant in asking questions to designers.
