You’re getting married! Once the initial “Yay!” factor has passed, it’s time to start shopping for the dress. THE dress.

It’s the internet to the rescue! Why stop the convenience of online shopping at books, groceries, and your daily wardrobe, when you can order your dream dress with just the tap of your finger from a reputable boutique with five-star customer ratings?

Still not convinced? Check out our top 10 reasons to buy your wedding dress online!


Let Your Wedding Dress Be a Surprise!

Most bridal experts say you shouldn’t take more than two people to your dress appointments - the differing opinions and views may prevent you talk you out of your dream dress.

Instead, find your favorite dress online and wow the crowd when you make your big entrance! Make sure you ask the wedding photographer to capture the shot of your closest friends and family seeing your dress for the first time!

Finding Your Style

Instead of digging through racks of dresses that all look the same on a hanger, relax in bed and peruse beautifully styled pictures online, and get a great feel for the exact dress you want.

You Get to See Every Dress

Bridal boutiques have limited selections, but online shopping is limitless! Create a list of your favorites in one place so you can compare, and decide which one is perfect for you.

A Stress-Free Experience

Instead of having a stranger helping you in and out of dresses, make comments on your figure, and then have to model dresses in front of your family, friends, and anyone else in the boutique, save that stress for something else (like deciding the flavor of cake)!

Skip anxiety and embarrassment and enjoy shopping on your terms when you’re looking at dresses online!

No Pressure to Buy a Dress or Blow Your Budget

Bridal stylists and sales people often get paid on commission, meaning they want you to buy a dress, and they would rather you buy a more expensive dress. If a stylist is especially pushy, you may end up with a dress you don’t like, a dress that doesn’t flatter you, or a dress you can’t afford.

Shopping online ends the pressure - you don’t like a dress on a website or can’t find an affordable wedding dress? No worries! And you can take all the time you need!

Convenience of Shopping From Your Home

Pants-optional shopping, ‘nuff said.

Ordering the Right Size

With the right online boutique, you can get a custom made dress based completely on your measurements. This limits or even eliminates the need for expensive, time-consuming alterations.

Shorter Waiting Times

Experts recommend  shopping for your wedding dress at least nine months before your wedding, but what if you don’t have that kind of time? Or what if you just don’t want to wait that long?

With the right online bridal boutique, you can get a handmade dress in less than two months!

Transparent Pricing

Shopping online for your wedding dress makes staying in your budget easy. Pricing is much more transparent and hidden fees and charges are much less common. Plus, comparison shopping is a breeze.

A Better Variety of Affordable Wedding Dresses

Online wedding dress shopping makes it easy for you to find discounts and sales, but you’ll also find more affordable wedding dresses overall. The internet is a more competitive marketplace and overhead costs of an online boutique is less than a brick-and-mortar shop. Those savings get passed on to you!
