<div class=”postbody”>Congratulations to all brides on your upcoming wedding!
Being a part of the wedding gown industry, I thought I might pass along some tips on purchasing your gown online. There are SO many sites out there – some are legit and you can get a great deal and others are a nightmare.
#1 – Only purchase from sites that offer REAL photographs of sample dresses that have been completed. Don’t assume that because they use a designer’s photo that the dress will look like the designer original. Take a close look at their sample photos, if available, to see the quality and attention to detail in a finished product.
#2 – Only purchase your gown from a retailer that offers a refund policy. There is no reason why an online gown retailer cannot guarantee the quality of their product. If they say, "well, it’s a custom gown so we don’t provide refunds" steer clear of them.
#3 – Steer away from Ebay unless the seller has a legitimate business outside of the site. There are too many fly by night wedding businesses that disappear in a matter of days on Ebay and then there’s no way to track your purchase.
#4 – Only purchase gowns from sites that offer Paypal. Your payment is secure. Don’t use money wire or transfer services.
#5 – It’s best to use a US based company. This way you don’t have to worry about time zone differences or language barriers.
I wish everyone the very best on your wedding plans!!
