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.

Top Wedding

TOP WEDDING Visit Site

Cost:

From $85 to $596

Top Wedding offers a wide selection of wedding gowns, with more than 1,700 dresses in a variety of designs currently featured on their website. The site is easy to use, with left-hand navigation that allows brides to narrow down their options by price, silhouette, fabric, body shape, and several other categories. Customers can also sort by designer, but even their most popular one, Amaranta, didn't show up on any other retailers' sites; there are no dresses from more recognized names like Vera Wang or Oleg Cassini.

Top Wedding's customer reviews are a mixed bag. Some shoppers are very pleased with their purchase, stating that the dress exactly matched their expectations, was shipped on time, and that customer service handled any issues promptly. On the other hand, there are more than a few customers who had serious problems with getting orders delivered, with finding that the gown delivered was of much lower quality than what was pictured on the site, or that no help was offered by customer service until they posted a negative review online. Coupled with a discouraging F rating by the Better Business Bureau, these negative experiences make it difficult to know if a bride will receive the dress she wants in a timely fashion and if it will match what she saw on Top Wedding's website.

In fact, we suspect that Top Wedding is similar to other Chinese-based wedding retailers in our review that post images of dresses from high-end designers and then create copies to sell to their own customers. We found several dresses in the Morilee line by Madeline Gardner, for example, that are represented on Top Wedding's site with no mention of the designer, the line, or with any indication that the gowns sold are actually authentic.

Top Wedding's return policy is equally murky. On the return policy page, it says that there are no returns or exchanges on Dresses, unless the product received is incorrect (such as the wrong color, size, and so on). When reading through Top Wedding's detailed return instructions, it becomes clear that only returns that meet very strict criteria will actually be approved by their customer service department.

Although some customers have been very happy with their purchase from Top Wedding, their lack of accreditation and F rating with the BBB, along with seemingly sketchy practices (such as selling designer dresses with no credit given to those designers) leave us with a number of serious questions about the site's credibility. We strongly suggest that brides start their shopping with one of the more reputable retailers in our review.

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!
