I live in VA and am getting married in Atlanta. I chose to search in Atlanta so that I would not have to travel with my dress. My only complaint about the process is going back and forth for fittings. Make sure to schedule out when you think your fittings may be so that you can plan accordingly and not get surprised at the last second due to last minute trips.

Because of the hassle of travelling with it, I would say that if you can find something near your wedding location that would be ideal.  I’m in CA and my wedding is in MI.  As it turns out I’m having it custom made here so I’ll need to carry it on when I go home for the wedding.  But I’m already getting nervous about htis 6 mos out.  On the otherhand, fittings etc are much easier if the dress is local to where you live.

If you end up going with a dept store, however, you might be able to ask them to take care of transporting the dress.  I had considered a dress at Saks, and they told me they could ship between stores insured.  I can’t recall now if they charged extra for this, but it definitely sounds like it would be a big stress reliever if you can manage it.
