A wedding is one of the most special and memorable times of a woman's life. When getting ready for such an important day, every bride wants to feel attractive and confident. That all starts with a beautiful, well-fitting wedding dress.

Finding the right wedding dress, however, can be a time-consuming and frustrating experience. Driving from store to store, trying on different wedding dresses, and agonizing over limited selections can quickly turn the event into a nightmare.

David's Bridal

DAVID'S BRIDAL Visit Site

Cost:

From $39.99 to $2,098

With a history spanning 60 years and retail stores throughout the US, Canada, and UK, David's Bridal is well-established as a Wedding Dress retailer. Their website is incredibly user-friendly, and makes it easy to find exactly the style, color, and price range you're looking for. Using the options on the left-hand side of the page, you can sort the 1,500 available dresses by designer, such as Vera Wang, Oleg Cassini, and nearly a dozen others; or, by style, price, color, silhouette, length, straps/sleeves, or neckline.

Additional features include the ability to save favorite items to multiple lists - bridesmaids dresses and accessories, flower girl dresses, and so on - to keep track of potential choices while shopping; a budget planner, to keep an eye on expenses; and even the David's Bridal Rewards program, offering discounts and savings of up to $2,000 with DB's national partners, such as $40 off every tuxedo rental from Men's Wearhouse and discounts on wedding rings at Helzberg Diamonds.

David's Bridal has a selection that truly covers every prospective bride. If you're on a budget, David's has 100 dresses under $200. Looking for something elegant and high-end? There are 500 dresses in the $800-and-up range. And, David's Bridal is one of the few retailers in our review that has a wide selection for both petites (women 5'4" and under) and plus sizes, up to 30W.

At the time of our review, shipping was free for all orders of $99 and more; there was also a pop-up for free shipping as well as a contest to win a wedding dress. In general, returns of dresses purchased online are accepted within 14 days of shipping, provided the dress is in original condition. Wedding dresses purchased online may not be returned to any David's Bridal store and can only be returned by mail.

We did find several customer complaints that they received dresses that were stained and that it took some time to have them replaced by customer service, but in general their shoppers are satisfied with their online wedding dress purchase. Because of their incredibly wide selection for brides of all budgets, sizes, and preferences, we recommend David's Bridal as a good place to find a wedding dress.

Light In The Box

LIGHT IN THE BOX Visit Site

Cost:

Starting from $59.99

Light in the Box is a Chinese Wholesale company with over 95,000 products that include wedding dresses, cell phones, health and beauty products, outdoor sports, and much more. The categories of wedding dresses are listed on the left side, offering many different options to select from. The website is organized well and has a clean look.

Each wedding dress ordered is either custom made or tailored to the customer's measurements. This causes the wedding dress to be shipped at a minimum of 16 working days from when the order is placed. The shipping costs vary based upon each item, they are calculated at checkout.

The website looks nice, but with a little more research about customer's experiences purchasing wedding dresses from Light in the Box, we have grave concerns about their quality of wedding dresses and customer service. There are more complaints listed about this company then any other company we reviewed. Many of the complaints have to do with the extremely poor quality of wedding dress received, stating that the wedding dress pictured on the website does not reflect the quality of wedding dress received.

The website states that the pictures shown with the model and the wedding dress are taken in their studios, but we found the same exact pictures listed on many other company's websites. These pictures in fact come directly from the wedding dress designers themselves, showing the falsehood in Light in the Box's claims. Other complaints involve trying to contact customer service and not being able to get a hold of a real person. We repeatedly called the phone number listed and could not get a live person on the phone either.

The return policy makes the customer believe that it should be an easy process to return a wedding dress. However, we found many complaints that once a customer was able to get ahold of the company, they often received the run around and were told the wedding dress could not be returned.

There is too much negative feedback on this company for us to recommend it. With several better wedding dress options available, we suggest you shop elsewhere.

Shopping for a wedding dress online can alleviate all of these frustrations. With the click of a mouse, you can browse through hundreds of wedding dresses from a variety of top wedding dress designers. You can find wedding dresses in all different sizes and colors, and often at a much lower cost than anything you can find in a local store.

However, not all wedding dress stores are the same. You should consider a few important factors when starting your wedding dress shopping effort:

  • Selection. How large is the wedding dress selection? A large number of wedding dress designs will increase your chances of finding the perfect wedding dress to suit your body type, budget and preferences.
  • Cost. How does the price of the wedding dress compare with other stores? Are you getting a great price, or are you paying a premium? Does the store only cater to high end wedding dresses, or do they offer a selection that anyone can afford?
  • Return Policy. In the event you're not happy with your wedding dress once it arrives, are you able to return it for a full refund?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best wedding dress stores available today. We hope this information helps you find that perfect wedding dress for your beautiful wedding!
