  1. It’s true that buying online is getting more popular and this is going to become even bigger than it already is. My sister is looking for a bridal dress online and she was worried that it wasn’t going to fit or look good on her, so a return policy is a must have. I think this is the first thing to look for when buying something so expensive online. What’s your recommended website? Thanks

  2. Hello Sha,

    Thank you for this post. I am a huge fan of buying things online. However, it is tricky for me when it comes to find the right clothes for me. I am a very petite woman. So, if I need to buy a wedding dress online, I will not only pay attention to the fabrics and size descriptions, but I will also look for the terms and conditions for returning or replacing the dress. If the company can make sure there is no hassle to return or replace the dress, then I will be more than happy to buy online.


  3. Hi there,

    First of all, I would like to say that I like the color purple that the content is mentioned in; its something different and stands out. I think its a great idea that you are writing about this topic, because many individuals get overwhelmed with purchasing a dress in general.

  4. Well all I can say is this is fab and shopping for wedding gowns has come a long way since my day. I can’t believe you can order sample dress for up to 3 days, that saves so much time and stress driving around all over the place searching for hours. I think online shopping is probably a great way to go these days. It saves time, stress and you get what you want straight up without having to sift through 100’s of dresses. It could actually be a fun way to bring in a load of samples and have a viewing day at home with your female friends. I am curious though, do you need to put a down payment or holding payment incase you do any damage to the dress while its in your possession? Great idea though, Love it.
