How to Buy a Wedding Dress Online

In today’s day and age, online shopping can be the ultimate convenience. Being able to purchase anything you want from the comfort of your own home is so much easier than going to a physical location to get the item you’re looking for.

Unfortunately, with all of its convenience, buying things online that are tailored specifically to you can be a risky activity. Specifically, buying a wedding dress online. Whether the size doesn’t fit you, or the gown is not what it looked like in the pictures, there are several different factors that can contribute to a regretful purchase.

Blessing Brides wants you to find the perfect dress, even if not with us, so check out these important things to look for when buying a wedding dress online!

Things to Look for When Buying a Wedding Dress Online

  • If a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.

  • When looking to buy a wedding dress online, be wary of the prices that boutiques are offering. If a site is selling several thousand dollar designer dresses at a severely reduced price, you should proceed with caution. While this very well may be a great deal, it is also likely that you’re walking right into a scam.

  • Read the return policies, shipping costs, and delivery date.

  • Buying a wedding dress online won’t do you any good if it’s delivered after your wedding date! Similarly, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the return policies and the shipping costs. You may find a great deal on a dress, but in turn pay hundreds in shipping costs. Knowing how much it will cost you to have it shipped will factor in your financial decision making. Lastly, one of the most important things to know is if a dress is returnable. If by chance this dress is too small for you, it’s nearly impossible for a tailor to fix. Then, you’re stuck with a dress that doesn’t fit.

  • Make sure you view the photos.

  • Even the most beautiful dresses can look different from all angles. It’s important to familiarize yourself with how the dress looks, so you can be sure that this is a purchase you actually want to make. Additionally, buying a wedding dress online from a site that does not include a lot of photos is something to be wary about, as they could intentionally not include pictures as to mislead you.
