David's Bridal vs eDress Me
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.
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.
eDressMe is a New York based company that began in 2001 as a dress site for Tango dancers. They offer a very wide selection of special occasion dresses at competitive prices. They were our top-ranked company in Prom Dresses. The reason they fall just about average for wedding dresses is they only offer more "informal" wedding dresses deemed more for destination weddings. There are only 21 wedding dress options to choose from and probably won't meet the needs of the majority of our shoppers.
The website is well organized and since there are only a few wedding dress options, you really don't need to navigate much to view all of their options. However, one nice option at eDressMe, that most of the other companies do not offer, is price matching and price adjustments. If you find the exact same dress, in stock from another company, they will match the price. Also, if the price of your dress is reduced within 14 days of purchase, they will adjust your price accordingly.
Unlike many other companies reviewed, eDressMe also offers store credit or exchanges for dresses that do not meet your satisfaction. You only have 3 days from receiving your order to contact them. Please check the website for more information in regards to their customer service policies.
eDressMe is United States based, reputable company that stands behind their product. Their prices are very competitive, yet their wedding dress selection is limited. If you are looking for a more casual wedding dress eDressMe is a great option, if you want something more formal, we would suggest you search one of the higher ranked companies.
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:
