Last night I bought a wedding dress from JCPenney.
I should note here that I have not gone dress shopping at all, so I haven’t tried on a single wedding dress.
It was only 99 dollars (well 109 dollars after taxes) and I got free shipping with a code you can find online. JCPenney has a really great return policy just in case it doesn’t fits.
If it fits, I’m going to jazz it up with a little lace. I don’t want to go sleeveless for my wedding so I’m going to add wide lace straps. Also I’m thinking I can add a waist to it.
Anyways I told a my BMs this one was sad that she couldn’t go dress shopping with me and another thought it was a great idea.
I told my co-workers and most of them thought I was crazy. Like should dress shopping be the one of the most exciting things you do for your wedding and you skipped that by buying it online, you don’t know even know if it fits (this is why I check the return policy).
I wondered if anyone else has done something similar.
I thought it will turn out great and it will save major money and I’ll have a one of kind of dress (after I jazz it up)… but now I’m having second thoughts.

I have a friend who did this! She ordered her wedding dress online without ever having tried one on – if trying on dresses isn’t important to you, then who cares? And like you said, if you don’t love it, you can return it! No harm done!

I think that its a wonderful looking dress. I am planning on going all over the place and trying on different dresses to see what suits me, write down the designers name and information and then if I can find it cheaper online, purchasing it (like you based on the return policy)
I say go for it!

I LOVE this dress!! I actually started to buy it but I wanted something with a little train. I don’t know about adding a waist though….I can’t picture that.

I don’t think there’s any reason for second thoughts! Like amanda.lynn said, you can just return it if it’s not what you like. I think it’s really pretty! Let us know how it works out 🙂

For me dress shopping is a very exciting process, I have been looking forward to it since before I was ever engaged. But if you are just not into shopping, then it shouldn’t bother you.
I guess you could go shopping just for the fun of it but then you risk falling in love with another dress.
Also, since your dress was so inexpensive it won’t be a huge loss if you decide to buy another one you try on.

I really like that dress. Is your wedding more lowkey, like on a beach or something? If so, that is a great dress for that kind of wedding.

it’s a beautiful dress!! and you could totally jazz it up! if you’re not the shopping kind – or dress shopping doesn’t appeal to you – don’t let everyone else tell you how you’re supposed to deal with your own wedding. if you love the dress and LOVE the fact that you spent such a great price…then I say be happy and excited about it! 🙂

@raindrops: you can add a cathedral or chapel length veil to give you more of the train feeling…
