- Wedding: May 2008
I just wanted to write this post because when I was deciding whether to buy a dress online I couldn’t find any comments that would really help. So here I’m answering the questions I wish someone had answered for me then.
I tried on my dress at a local shop before I decided to buy online, mostly looked at what styles would look well on my body so as to be able to get something similar online if not the same dress. I then ordered it online, saving about 40% of the price that the dress was being sold at a local shop. That was a lot!!!!! I was originally nervous when ordering because my wedding date is April 5th. When I ordered my dress it was December 3rd. The person at the online bridal place told us my dress would be getting here the 14th of april that was the latest promised date. I had read in other places that they usually sent it earlier, but nowhere would they give an actual estimate so it was my biggest worry. Would like to tell everyone that I was pleasantly surprised. I did not pay a rush fee, although they did ask whether I would like to do that and my dress is due to arrive this 15th of January, One month and 12 days after I placed the order.
Just for anyone considering going the online route, would like to say go for it! But really, you should only buy it online if you’re absolutely sure about the dress you want. It’s not for everyone!!!
