    I only condone ordering online if you’ve tried on (and loved) a similar style in a boutique.

     

    It’s SO hard to know if a certain dress will indeed flatter the way you think it will.  I ended up with a dress completely opposite of what I thought I would buy.  Just something to consider before online ordering…be sure you know what you’re getting into!!!

    @littlemisssally:  

     

    Honestly, I think the reverse is true.  When you go to a local boutique, you’re paying extra for their rent, their staff and all the extra tax and whatnot.

     

    When you buy online, you get a better price without the merchant markup price!  If you KNOW that this style will look good on you and you are quite certain about the size according to the size chart, then I say go for it!!  ALSO…a little known secret is that many of these boutiques deliberately order you the wrong size so you are forced to pay exorbitant fees for alterations!!  You may still opt to get your dress altered, but you won’t have any pressure to get your dress altered through the local merchant…you can now shop around for the most reliable and fairly priced tailor.

    I wish I had bought my gown online….but I got married nearly 6 years ago…things sure have changed now!!!
