I bought my online. Found it at David’s Bridal, the first and only site I looked at. I decided quickly because it was beautiful, in my size, and dirt cheap.  Received it in one day and I love it.  Only needs a couple alterations.

I have now purchased 3 dresses online.  I think I have a problem.  The first two I bought I did so without really checking the size chart so I am in the process of trying to sell them.  The third dress, THE dress, worked out because I knew the style I wanted and certain details that this dress had.  I also finally got my brain working and made sure it would fit.  Hopefully you have a general sense of what will work on your body.  Otherwise, I would recommend going to a salon to try on basic styles and then, if you want to go the online route, do the actual purchasing there. 

You have to be careful with online purchases because you can’t know for sure however, I have had positive experiences… even though I purchased three dresses.  Thank goodness they were cheap!

I originally bought a dress off ebay right after i got engaged. It looked awsome on the listing and i sent in my measurments so it already fir perfect when i got it. Only problem was it looked nothing like the picture. Instead of the rhinestone beading like in the picture. It came with cheap beads and pearls sewed on. It looked awful. I ended up getting to keep the dress and the seller gave me 50% back of what i paid. And through kijiji i was able to sell it for the other 50%. All in all i would not buy a wedding dress online and since went to some local boutiques and fouind my dream dress. Good luck on your search.

I saw a bunch that I liked, but nobody had it locally.  I tried on a bunch more in the store that were similar, and just never fell in love with one of those. 

I was tempted to order online, but finally (like 12 billionth phone call) found a shop across town that had it and as soon as I had it on and saw myself I knew it was my dress!

I bought a dress online… but I had done a ton of pageants in HS & college and so I already knew exactly what I wanted.

Good luck on your search!

       You definitely need to go shopping in order to determine the silhouette that fits best on your body.

      If you find a website you like, just research them as thoroughly as you can! Check their return policy, reviews, talk to them on the phone to get a feel for them and their professionalism. Also, check their return policy, and if they do accept returns, check to see if they have a restocking fee and how much do they charge for the restocking fee. Don’t be afraid to talk to them and before you purchase the gown, ask them if they can waive the restocking fee if it did not fit or you did not like it.

      They might also offer a loaner program. A few online retailers will let you “borrow” the dress and if you don’t like it simply return it or exchange i

      Make sure you take your measurements and compare them to their size chart before purchasing.

Good Luck!!
