Where to Shop for the Perfect Wedding Dress

Mar 25, 2008
There are a lot of things to think about when you are planning your wedding, but one of the more enjoyable tasks should be picking out a wedding dress. Every bride wants to find the perfect dress that makes her feel like a princess. There are a few things that you should look for in the stores you use that will save you a lot of headaches though.

Selection

Try to shop at well-stocked stores. There is nothing as frustrating as seeing your idea of "the perfect dress" on a hanger only to discover that they don't have any more of that style in your size. You can avoid this disappointment by shopping at stores with a large selection of dresses.

Prices

Some wedding dress stores are simply more expensive than others. To find better deals, look for stores that are stocked by their own factories. When a store is stocked by its own factory they can cut down on costs of buying dresses from a different manufacturer and pass those saving down to you. If you shop smart, you can buy a beautiful wedding dress for a third of the price that others are selling for even though yours is just as beautiful.

Delivery Timeframe

Watch out for wedding dress stores that take a long time to get your dress in the store. Most shops have different styles of dresses in several different sizes on-site, but some only have one size of each style. These stores then order the style you like in the size you need. The positive result of this process is that you can be sure that no one has ever worn your wedding dress before and the store doesn't end up with unsold dresses. But the negative side is that each dress is individually ordered and can take up to eight weeks to be made and delivered. That is almost two months! Let's hope you don't gain or lose too much weight during that time. Taking your dress with you or having it at your door in three days is much more convenient for future events like bridal pictures.

Return Policy

When you buy a dress, make sure that the store you are shopping at has a good return policy. It would be tragic if you found something you liked better but you couldn't buy it because there was no way to return another dress that you had already bought.

Shopping for a wedding dress really is a fun experience. There are hundreds of styles to choose from and you are certain to find something just perfect for your body type. So do a little research on the stores, get your girl friends together and head out for a day of dress up.
