@reinab505: How much does it cost to ship them back? if that 40 bucks is not including shipping and insurance, I would drive 🙂

Take the flight into Logan and go by yourself – lkots of bridal shops to look at there as well.  Enjoy the day – there is tons of fun and shopping in Boston!!!

I am only 90mins from Boston but I went there when Vera Wang was having her Sample sale – it was an amazing time!!!  They are sooo nice there!!

I love Boston so I would probably actually go to the city to try the dresses on and have a good time!

just do it!! go there! enjoy the experience and nothing like a good trip away! if the dresses arent what they are meant to be I would research a few bridal places in your destination and also have a browse! cant hurt! you wouldnt have that option if you got them shipped!

If you have them all sent to you and you send them all back, from what you have said, it will cost a minimum of $320.00. I say go there and save yourself the headache. It will be a nice get away.

I would go there to try them all on. That way you can also compare them in a place with a lot of mirrors, and probably better lighting than at your house, and if you do need to get it altered you can always have it altered at a place local to you and not in Boston. I’m having my dress altered by a private seamstress not someone who works for where I bought my dress.

You said you hate being places without a car – Boston is more inconvenient WITH a car, unless you are trying to go to a bridal salon in the suburbs. The subway and cabs are waaayyyy easier to get around on, and much cheaper. Just go spend a weekend in Boston. September and October are the BEST here, too, the tourists are mostly gone, and the weather is actually good (for a change).

I’d go to Boston. That way you can try on all 3–or 4–and make your decision based on complete information. If they’re shipped to you one by one, you might be stuck thinking, “this one’s really pretty, but I wonder if I’ll love the other one even more…”

Why don’t you drive to Chicago? There must be bridal shops in Chicago!

i would take a fun day trip to boston…i think it would be good to see them on you all at once b/c i think it will be easier to decide…maybe invite your mom to take the trip with you? otherwise, make sure to take your camera!
