Has anyone purchased their wedding dress online?

Recommended Posts

I have found a wedding dress that I really like in a wedding store.  I looked up the style number on the internet and found websites which sells it much cheaper. Has anyone ever bought their dress online?

I am also looking at this. I want a short wedding dress and it just seems like theres more variety online than in the wedding dressses.  I'm nervous tho because I'm not sure if it will fit right or if I'll like the material and such.  Let me know what you decide and Ill do the same. My weddings fast approaching so I need to make a decision soon.

This is what I did. I fell in love with a maggie dress here in Canada then I went online and found a bridal store in Pennsylvania that was selling their sample for 1/3 of the price. I was soooooo nervous because: 

 

1. It's a sample and I wouldn't able see the condition of the dress til it got here, but the owner assured me that it was in good condition.

2. They asked for my CC info over email... and I gave it! In hindsight, I would have called them and given it over the phone but I just couldn't wait to get my dress.

 

It came a few weeks later and it is as perfect as can be. The owner was amazing to deal with and I'm so happy I got my dream dress for a fraction of the price. If you're getting it from a real online store that does online sales, I wouldn't be too worried. Best is try to find some reviews on the particular store and see what other people had to say.

 

Here is where I bought mine http://diamondsandlacebridal.com/monthly-sample-sale/

For anyone else interested in buying samples, they have a list of samples they are selling and update this regularly. Mine is the RD1044 at the top of the list that is now crossed out :D

 

Good luck!

The dresses on dhgates are knockoffs. Take a look at the knock off thread in the dress forums to get an idea of what you can get.

The dresses will never be exactly the same as the original but the prices are great and you can end up really happy with your dress if you understand what you're getting into. :)

Thank you! I will have a look.  The prices are great but I absolutely love the dress and don't know that I would love it just as much if its not quite the same.

That was my problem too. I had already tried on the real thing and it was made and fit so well that I don't think I could be satisfied with a knock-off version. Used dresses are another option that you could consider. :)

I ordered mine through Netbride.  It was about $300 cheaper than a bridal salon here, but still a designer original.  It should be in tomorrow, but they were good to deal with.  Also offered free shipping and a credit on shoes/veils/favors!

Just email them for a quote and they give you all the details.

I'm pretty much stuck with buying mine online, since no stores around here carry what I want. Though, good idea would be to go and see if you can try on any other dress by the same designer, as sizing and fit is usually the same for all of the dresses by the same designer.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
