I have been heavily using the internet to figure out what dresses I like, what designers I should look into, what prices are good, etc. I am continually frustrated by the following things and figured others could relate:
1. Pictures of white or ivory dresses on WHITE backgrounds. Can’t see anything, duh! I’ve even seen this on fancy designer sites. Idiotic.
2. Models that slouch and stand twisted with their knee out and all kinds of similar contortions. This is fine for ONE of the photos, but they need to also include a straight view from the front!
3. Similar to above, but pics that ONLY include someone sitting down in the dress, and a back view is only if you are very lucky! There is no way to judge the fullness of a skirt when some chick is slouched half on, half off the back of a sofa!
4. Total lack of REAL info on the dress, such as type of fabric (not just taffeta, but what? silk? poly?), if the fabric has stretch or not, if the dress has any sort of corseting in the construction, etc.
5. Dress websites that won’t email you back when you send questions about a dress.
Okay, I just had to get that off my chest! I just feel like, in this day and age when the internet is such an INTEGRAL part of mst people’s lives and planning, there needs to some huge imrovements! It could only HELP sales, IMO.
Thanks for listening!

Ahhh, I agree with you so much! I can’t stand it when wedding dresses, or any clothes for that matter, are displayed in such an awful way that you can’t really tell what they look like.
This is Not Wedding Related, but one of the worst offenders I’ve seen was the photos in an Anthropologie catalog awhile back. Everything was underwater, so all the dresses were all blurry and floating around them, and you had NO clue what it actually looked like. I remember getting it and being like, Whaaaaat???!!

I don’t mind the modely pics that look more like a fashion spread but I think at the very least they should also include on the website a straight pic of the front and back.

I so agree. So many websites dont show you the back of the dress or the sides. No detail shots. Just a model sitting or doing something but actually modelling the dress for us lol.

One thing I wish was for the models to just be a little bigger. I’m not sure but Im thinking most people are not the models’ sizes. I go in to try the dress on and it looks totally different on me cause I’m bigger than what the models are. i wish the models were a little bigger so it’d be easier to get a sense of what the dresses really look like.
Also, I had really good luck with the brand Justin Alexander. They replied to emails 🙂

Fully agree! Number 1 is my biggest pet peeve. I mean, how does that make sense in any situation? Come on guys! I also hate the sitting or weird model poses. I understand you want to look couture, but seriously now.
