So, I was one of the brave souls who chose to buy online. I live in a rural part of the state, and I didn’t have many options – especially as a plus size bride. I took a chance on http://www.weddingshoppeinc.com and I’m so happy I did. Their prices were cheaper than salons (thought not by too much, honestly) and they had an absolutely MASSIVE selection, especially in plus sizes. Now that I’ve gotten my dress in, I can absolutely tell you these things:
- It’s a real designer dress, not a knock-off.
- It’s not a scam. I got real people with personal e-mails and phone numbers as contact information. They have a brick and mortar store in Minnesota.
- It was the typical wait period, but my dress ended up shipping two weeks early. I ordered September 9 and it got here December 11.
- The return policy isn’t fantastic, but it never is for wedding gowns. I just got lucky enough that I liked it and wouldn’t have to send it back.
- I bought this dress without trying it on, and it turned out really well.
This is my dress! Ignore the horrible lighting – apparently my kitchen wasn’t designed as a photo studio.
Also, these are huge. Sorry about that.
See the goofy smile? Love it!
The dress is Bonny Unforgettable 1219 in a size 24. Gorgeous dress and really flattering.
Well, what do you think Bees? Is it a keeper?

@lyssadelag: Wow! You are brave for having done that, but, at the same time, I can understand your being willing to take the risk if shopping options for bridal gowns were limited in your area.
Well, from what I’m seeing in your pictures, your dress is beautiful and looks amazing on you! It’s very figure flattering, it seems to fit you quite well, and the details on the dress are beautiful without being overpowering. Great choice! So glad this all worked out so well for you!

It looks great! I’m going to be taking the plunge [pun intended!] in getting an online dress. I could not find a single thing I loved, and only found it online.

@lyssadelag: Promise you The Wedding Shoppe is no scam. I got my dress there too…in person! I live in St. Paul where the shop is located and it’s such a cute shoppe located on Grand in a couple old victorian homes that have been converted. So glad you had a great experience with them. I just picked up my dress from them last night!
