So it seems to be a growing trend that more and more people buy their wedding dresses online, and if im honest I can see why they do, with the cost of some wedding dresses today. Many Brides I have spoken to say it is only for one day and I cant afford to spend £1-2k and upwards for a dress when you have some many other things to pay for, weddings are not cheap.

But..........

bridal shopping online

 

I can honestly say when I got married it never even crossed my mind to look at dresses online, and I am a bargain Queen. I loved going from bridal shop to bridal shop and having the experience of trying all the different styles on, and I was on a budget too. I was very lucky to find my dream dress for £550…. yes this was 10 years ago but I do believe you can still snap up a bargain from a bridal shop. A few pictures of my dress

I recently worked at a bridal shop and having chatted to the Manager she had said that in the past 18 months – 2 years the bridal shop industry has dropped and so many brides now buy their dresses online as they are so much cheaper but should we not be supporting our local businesses? At least buying from a shop you can:

1) Try the dresses on and find out what style you like and dont like - 90% of the time you alway pick something you never thought you would wear.

2) You get the whole “bridal” experience, most women love wedding dress shoppping, its all part of getting married and sharing the experience with people close to you

3) You have somewhere to go if there are any problems – sometimes problems do occur so by buying in a shop you can always go back and discuss the issue and it should be easier to resolve the problem.

You read so many horror stories of people buying their “dream” dress online and it not looking like its suppose to in the picture. Here are a few pictures I have found from an article from the Daily mail. These 3 ladies saw their dream dress online and of course at the fracture of a cost and decided to buy it..... and now they are stick with a horrible dress, they lost their money and the whole wedding dress experience dampened.

I can only imagine how these poor brides must have felt

So with all of this is mind there are many other ways of being able to get you dream wedding dress at a more affordable price without having to run the risk of this happening to you….

  1. Check out your nearby Bridal shops as they may have Sale dresses or discontinued dresses where you can snap up a BARGAIN
  2. Look on Facebook at your local wedding sale pages as loads of shops and people sell dresses on there
  3. Larger department shores with have a range of dresses and reasonable prices
  4. Search for wholesaler shops – there a few shops around that offer either new dresses or discontinued dresses at half the price so you will definately be able to grab yourself a good bargain there

So please just think before you go buy that cheaper dress online – as you only plan to get married once and it is YOUR wedding dress you are buying and not just an evening dress

Happy Shopping
