Hello, loves! When buying a wedding dress, today’s bride-to-be is not limited to local wedding shops alone. Buying a wedding dress online has become increasingly popular for three reasons: first, buying online gives the bride-to-be freedom to shop anywhere in the world. Secondly, it requires no appointment (and can be done in your pj’s). Third, buying a wedding dress online makes comparison shopping easy – and can even save you a little money. Why, then, does the idea of buying a wedding dress online still sound a wee-bit frightening to brides? The answer: the wedding dress is one of the most important (maybe even most expensive) wedding day purchases a bride will make… and it’s totally normal to want your dress to be absolutely perfect. That’s why we’re showing you five tips for buying a wedding dress online to make buying handmade dresses more accessible – and, a little less scary. So, without further adieu, grab that measuring tape and let’s get to work!
