DAVID'S BRIDAL

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.

ERIC DRESS

Based in Hong Kong, Eric Dress sells wedding gowns in a variety of styles and price points. Shoppers can use the left-hand navigation to sort dresses by price range, silhouette, hemline, back details, season, embellishments, sleeve length, train, body shape, material, waist, and even by wedding venue.

According to the returns page, Eric Dress's policy allows customers to return or exchange unworn, clean dresses with tags intact within 30 days from the delivered date. Customers must contact the Eric Dress customer service department first, or the return shipment may be refused. Unfortunately, numerous reviews show that customers have difficulty getting in touch with the customer service department, as phone calls and emails both go unanswered.

Many of these returns are likely due to the dresses not arriving as pictured in the photos - often with differences in style, cut, sizing, or materials when compared with the original images featured on the site. While the site claims to use professional photography to capture the images of the dresses, some of the photographs were taken from personal wedding blogs (and the watermark was removed, as evidenced by the pixelation in the photos on Eric Dress).

Shipping costs depend on the item, and presumably by weight, but Eric Dress's estimates left us puzzled. On a heavily beaded gown with a long train, we were told that the weight was just under five pounds, and that shipping would be from $16.90 - $27.49. Several customers claimed that their shipping costs were almost double the price of the dress, and any returns place the cost of shipping on the buyer.

While we like both the variety of the dresses and the reasonable prices offered by Eric Dress, we cannot confidently recommend them to brides who are looking for a reputable online retailer for their wedding dress.

Best Wedding Dresses

To help you find the Best Wedding Dresses, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of David's Bridal and Eric Dress.

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.

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!
