Wedding Gowns/Bridesmaids' Dresses Online: What You Need To Know!

It's a chancy thing to order a wedding gown and/or bridesmaids' dresses on the Internet. And there are things you need to be aware of:

1. Is the Internet vendor an "authorized dealer" of the manufacturer? This is critical to ensure that you're getting the right wedding gown and/or bridesmaids' dresses and not a copy.

*To be sure, call the manufacturer and ask. Most have 800 numbers.

2. Is the Internet vendor backed by a brick-and-mortar business? In bridal world, this is a must. Most wedding gown and bridesmaids' dress manufacturers do NOT sell to vendors who are solely Internet vendors.


Always consult the manufacturer's size chart before selecting the size of your wedding gown and/or bridesmaids' dresses.

Size and What You Need to Know...

Wedding gowns and bridesmaids' dresses are NOT sized like "ready to wear". Each manufacturer has their own size chart--and their own determination as to what size you are! 

In order to properly order the correct size for your wedding gown or bridesmaids' dresses, you must consult the size chart from the manufacturer. 

CAUTION: DO NOT ORDER FROM ANY COMPANY WHO DOES NOT PROVIDE YOU WITH THE MANUFACTURER'S SIZE CHART! 

*If you're in doubt as to the size you should order, if you are between two sizes, for example, then order the larger size! You can always take a gown in to make it smaller--but you might not be able to make it bigger.

*If ordering a full-skirted wedding gown and/or bridesmaids' dresses, do not take the hip measurement into consideration. A full skirt will cover any hip size.  

There are NO returns of wedding gowns or bridesmaids' dresses if YOU made the mistake when ordering!

CAUTION: Wedding Gowns/Bridesmaids' Dresses: Return Policy

BE AWARE that wedding gowns and/or bridesmaids' dresses, whether ordered on the Internet or not, are custom orders. They cannot be returned unless the mistake was made by the Internet vendor or by the manufacturer.

For example, if you order the wrong style number online, or the wrong size or color, you cannot return the dresses.

If on the other hand, the Internet vendor ordered the wrong style number, size or color and you can prove it, then it's their mistake and they're responsible to fix the problem.

NOTE: YOU MUST GET A RECEIPT FROM THE INTERNET VENDOR WHICH STATES:

  1. Wedding date
  2. Manufacturer
  3. Style number
  4. Color
  5. Size
  6. Extra charges: Rush cut; extra length; extra size
  7. Shipping cost
  8. Total cost
  9. Amount paid

* Keep your receipts in a safe place. They are your only recourse if your gown and/or bridesmaids' dresses are ordered incorrectly!
