Today, many local brides
use the Internet to browse
wedding gown styles just to
get an idea of what appeals
to them most. This is an effi-
cient way to get to know the
designers offerings and view
the types of styles that suit
different body types.
Here are some general tips
to consider before purchasing
your gown online:
gown locally and then search
for it in the same size online.
Compare the local in-store
price to the Internet store s
price, to find out which is the
better deal. Be sure to factor
in the cost of customs duty
and shipping as well.
Beware of scam sites
There are many online
retailers who are operating ille-
gally, are unauthorised re-sell-
ers, or who are offering design-
er dress knock-offs. Warning
signs could be prices that are
too good to be true or a deliv-
ery time in a short number of
days or weeks.
Look for an online retailer
that includes many varieties
Secrets to buying your bridal gown online
and styles of gowns on their Web site.
Ensure that on the Web site you can
view detailed photos and even get
"zoom" views of gowns. The retailer
should also provide descriptions includ-
ing style, fabric, colour, size, so that you
know exactly what you re purchasing.
Most of the bridal gowns you order
online take time to be manufactured; so
chances are, you will not receive it imme-
diately! A good timeframe is to allow
three to five months for delivery.
FitEven though the Web sites may pro-
vide you with gown sizes, be sure to
view the Web site s body measurement
guide as well, since bridal gown sizes
do not always coincide with regular
Find out the "hollow to hem" meas-
urement (the length from the hollow in
your collar bones to the hem).
Remember that different designers
have different sizing, so a size four in
one designer gown is not necessarily a
"four" in another designer gown.
Many designers charge a different
price for dresses that are size 18 and
Inquire about sleeve length, since
adjustments on embroidered or heavily
beaded hems or sleeves are near impos-
sible to do in an easily concealed way.
Before purchasing, ensure that the
retailer s Web site is safe and that it does
not store or share your credit card infor-
mation. Be sure to use a secure online
checkout process and avoid paying for
your gown via money order, wire transfer
The majority of online retailers will
not have a return policy and as such,
sales will be final. Those retailers that
do offer a return policy may charge a
re-stocking fee, which will be a per-
centage of what your gown was worth.
Find out whether the Web site ships
internationally, so you can arrange for
your gown to be shipped either directly
to you here. If the retailer only ships to
the United States or Canada, you can
use your US or Canadian skybox, or
simply arrange to have it delivered to a
Gowns may need to be steam pressed
when you get them due to creases that
occur during shipping. Please do not
attempt to steam press a gown yourself,
it s much better and safer to get it pro-
