This year’s wedding season will soon be in full swing, and as many brides scurry to find the perfect designer wedding dress, many will turn to online shopping to find a great deal. If you know where to look, shopping online for your wedding dress can be a great option, you can explore the inventory of a variety of stores without driving all over town, you can shop for the best price easily, and you can compare dresses side by side. Here is a look at just a few of the places online where you can buy your designer wedding dress.
Bride Couture is a great website offering wedding dresses by designers such as Alfred Sung, Badgley Mischka, Atelier Aimee, Oscar De La Renta, Paloma Couture, and Vera Wang. The dresses are heavily discounted from regular retail price, and some dresses are priced at a savings from $1,000 to $2,000 below retail price. It is easy to search the site for dresses you can narrow your search by designer, silhouette, neckline, size, and price. There are only a few downsides to this website that I found, one is that they only tend to have one of each dress in stock, and sizes can be limited, but if they do have your size in the dress you are looking for it can be a great deal. The other complaint I have is that the dresses are displayed on black mannequins in front of a black background, which is meant to make the dresses stand out, but I think it makes it hard to really get a good idea of exactly what the dresses looks like.
Biz Rate is probably not your first thought when it comes to shopping for wedding dresses but it can be a great place to shop for a wedding dress. Entering simple key words such as wedding dresses, designer wedding dresses, or even Vera Wang wedding dresses brings up a large amount of results. Shopping at Biz Rate is easy because you can shop multiple stores at one time, and can compare prices easily. The one downside is that at times Biz Rate can be a little hard to navigate.
If buying a used wedding dress is an option for you then PreownedWeddingDresses.com may be just the right option for you. Not all of their dresses are used; some are also new and sample dresses. You can find a variety of designer wedding dresses on their site including designers such as Amy Kuschel, Vera Wang, Monique Lhuiller, and Melissa Sweet. Dress listings include detailed information such as designer and style, asking price and price paid, condition, measurements, year purchased, whether or not seller is original owner of dress, and whether or not seller has the original receipt for the dress.
