Have you ordered a dress online...unseen in person??

Recommended Posts

I found a dress I loved on inweddingdress.com, but I am skeptical. I have read many good and bad reviews about ordering from online companies that make these dresses. Any insight would be great. THANKS!

Hi Michealene,

 

I ordered a custom dress from the ebay seller Gianinarbridal and was so glad I did! I placed my order a bit late - takes about 2months to make the dress unless you place a rush order on it, which costs extra and I did not. The dress ended up arriving the week before the wedding and I was so nervous. But as soon as I pulled it out of the package, it was BEAUTIFUL and I was so happy about it all. I'd research the seller first though and ask on the boards to see if anyone has experience with this company. Good luck!

Not sure if this is what you mean, but...

 

I ordered two different dresses from JCrew - but these are more mass-produced than I assume you are thinking about. I wound up ordering a dress after dress shopping for a day.

 

I would say try to go out and find something similar if you haven't already to try it on. At least make sure you like the fit. Make sure you have someone who knows what he or she is doing measure you.

 

Good luck!

I think it would depend on your body type and what kind of time you have. The off the shelf stuff really wasn't fitting me all that well, so I ordered with the custom measurements and I'll still need to get some alterations done. After a LONG day of shopping, the dress I ended up with isn't anything like what I wanted going in. So if you've at least tried on a couple styles and have a general idea about what you want I would totally order online. Good luck!
