So, the big day is coming. You’ve booked the hall, you have the rings, the invitations have been sent, and you are ready to say, “I do.” If you were thinking about buying your wedding dress online, though, you really shouldn’t. Here are 3 simple reasons why.

Reason #1: What You See Isn’t Always What You Get

It’s an unfortunate truth of online shopping that what you see isn’t always what winds up at your door. Even if you find the most beautiful wedding dress, you don’t have the option to touch it, try it on, or look at it in detail. You just have the photos, and the seller’s word. So you might get something a size too small, or with the wrong details, or any of a dozen other flaws in it that you just didn’t see in the photos.

Reason #2: Travel Time Isn’t Always Predictable

While your wedding day might be a ways off, having a dress that you’re happy with is important. If you order a dress, and get exactly what you want, then you don’t have a problem. If you have to send it back, request alterations, or make an exchange, though, there can be a lot of back and forth with the sender. In fact, it might lead to you spending whatever you saved on postage.

Reason #3: It’s Better to Get Something That Fits You

When you’re wedding dress shopping, you’re not just buying a piece of clothing. You’re buying something that is all about you. That means you should have something that suits your body, but also your personality, and your wedding. Finding that from a few photographs on a website isn’t impossible, but it is quite hard. It’s why a wedding dress is one of the few things you really shouldn’t get online when it comes to your special day.
