Of all the shopping sprees you’ve done in your life, shopping for your wedding gown will, hands down, take the cake! You’re not just picking something for a special night out or a weekend getaway. It is for the biggest day of your life!
Luckily, these days, you don’t have to hop from one shop to the next. Shopping for bridal dresses has never been easier. Thanks to technology, you can simply go online and look for high-end wedding gowns to wear when you say “I do.” This makes it so much more convenient for busy brides or those who are eyeing dresses from shops that are geographically distant.
However, not being able to physically see, feel, or fit a dress can be challenging and even overwhelming. But it doesn’t mean it’s impossible. When it comes to picking out bridal gowns online, there are a few things you have to remember. With the help of these tips, you’ll be able to make the online shopping experience more enjoyable.
Here are some of our tips when you’re looking for timeless wedding gowns online:
Know your measurements in advance
Since you won’t be able to fit the wedding gown physically, it’s important that you have your accurate measurements handy. By having this in advance, you can save your time in picking out the right dress online.
There are some websites that provide the measurement of the item and the model so you can find the one that will fit you easily. It would also help to take a look at the shop’s official size guide.
Do your research
Another thing you have to know about buying online from a wedding dress shop in Sydney or in any city is that you need to be familiar with designers and what they specialise in. For instance, Berta Bridal is known for its distinct elements such as intricate lace details and beadworks, boned bodice, and delicate sheer fabric.
You also need to know what you need. Are you looking for fabric that will stretch or will remain stiff throughout your entire ceremony and reception? Would you prefer a beaded or a lace wedding dress? By knowing these things, you’ll know how to put together your entire ensemble and what to expect once the dress is shipped to your home or when you get to do the final fitting.
Consider the shop policy
Before you start looking online, take time to read the shop’s policy, including shipping and return. Since you will be buying online, you will be incurring shipping costs. Are you prepared to pay for shipping fees that could be expennsive? Will there be back and forth shipping until the right fit and details are met? What kind of return policy are you most comfortable with? Read carefully to avoid frustrations and confusion along the way.
Buy in advance and have a backup plan
Remember that when you buy online, you have to prepare for the time that the dress will be shipped to your location. For that, you need to allocate enough time for the shipping, especially if you are buying your dress overseas. When worse comes to worst, make sure you have a plan B so you don’t end up stressing over the delay.
Go through as many bridal dresses online
Once you find a store such as Kayrouz bridal that sells bridal gowns online, you need to go through all the options they have. You may be thinking of getting a V-plunge dress like this Jolie Bridal gown, or a sweetheart neckline like this Berta Napoli piece. Either way, don’t just settle on one that you love right away. Always keep your options open. Likewise, it would help to check out the shop’s Instagram page to see how the dress is worn by models or real brides in an actual setting.
Read the fine print
Always read the fine print: whether you’re reading the details of the dress or checking out your shopping cart from the website. This will let you know the little details that you need about the item you’re buying and how the store can accommodate your purchase. You will know about the return policies, delivery dates, shipping costs, and other important information by reading the fine print.
Shopping for bridal gowns online can be a wonderful experience as long as you buy from a credible store. Be smart, be inspired.
