To purchasers of online dresses

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

 

It appears many of you purchase your dresses online. How happy are you with your dress? Did you have to do alterations after you received it or was it a perfect fit? Was it from a retailer or a company that creates replicas?

 

Also did you try on the dress first elsewhere then went online to get it?

That'd be my concern. Dresses look so pretty in pictures and even others but the moment I put one on that I think might be ok, it looks terrible! If anything, I would try it on in a store and then order online to be a litte more sure of the purchase.

I completely agree - most of the time the dresses you like on the hanger and what you actually end up getting are two tooooooooootally different things!!

Definitely try it on in a store before you purchase it online, you'd hate to spend all that money to get the dress and hate the way that it looks on you. When you do go to the store.. be open minded and try on a little of everything.

Check out the knock-off thread - there is tons of info from brides about what they liked in thier dresses.

 

I love mine. I tried on similar dresses in stores to see if it would suit. Then I bought the one I wanted online, cause I couldn't find it anywhere.

If you read through the thread about knockoff dresses you can get more of an idea of what the ladies did who had replicas created, and I think alot of them went and tried on the original first :)

I had a great online experience with this. First I went to all the salons and found the perfect dress. Make sure to take a peak at the tag style and make because some salons don't like to tell you. Lucky for me mine was a Maggie Sottero and I found it on bestbridalprices.com . When it came in (2 months later) I made alterations to it and it resembled the exact one I tried on but better because it fit proper wink.gif It even had the Maggie Sottero tag in it. Pretty cool in the end I saved myself $600.

Definitely agree with trying on the dress at a salon first so you know if the style fits. Look for a reputable online retailer and purchase the same dress for less since they save on the actual cost of having a boutique :) and save a few hundred.

Has anybody bought on bestbridalprices.com or at storeofdress.com?

 

 

I saw they carry some dresses I tried on and I'd like to buy une of them. They have them for considerably less than what they have them on the boutiques I tried them on initially. But I would like to know if you have had good or bad experiences with these places. Or if you could recommend a different website for purchasing online.

 

Thanks a lot

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
