Wedding Dress Shopping from Home

Happy Friday! We made it through the week and are looking forward to the weekend. Finding the perfect wedding dress can be one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning. It was certainly mine – we had the best time and you can read all about that here. Many brides-to-be like to make a fun day of wedding dress shopping: they get their favorite girls together, have some bubbles and try on these fabulous dresses.

But what happens if you don’t have access to some of the major wedding dress retailers? Maybe you don’t want to deal with the crowds. Luckily, there are some fantastic at-home options available for you. You can still gather your girls, have some bubbles and snacks ready and make a day of it – all in the comfort of your own home.

There are several online companies that will accommodate your needs. For example, you can request multiple samples from an online retailer. Companies like BHLDN will allow you to host an at-home bridal fitting.

Here’s how:¬†

Contact a BHLDN stylist for help narrowing down your favorite gowns.

Once you’ve ordered your gown, plan to host your at-home fitting within a week or two of its arrival so that you stay safely inside of BHLDN’s 30 day return policy

{ 3 }
Decide where you’d like to host the fitting. Whether it’s your home or your grandmother’s, for example, consider what will be most comfortable and conducive to a special occasion

Once your samples arrive, you can try them on in the comfort of your home.

Another company that will let you order samples to try on at home is Floravere. You pick your samples, they arrive on your doorstep, you try them on and send them back. Shipping is free both ways.

Another option is to order one or two dresses from several larger stores like David’s Bridal or Nordstrom because they offer free shipping and free returns. Choose a couple from each location that reflect different styles.

List of Try-On Essentials:

One. Try to have your wedding heels ready. If you haven’t purchased your wedding shoes, find a pair that will be more or less the height that you plan to purchase.

Two. Undergarments.

Three. Jewelry

We think the at-home option sounds like just as much fun as hitting the town in search of the perfect dress with your girls.
