Amelii can be proud of the fact that we make brides happy all over the world – Amelii is working as an online bridal shop for years. We have a lot of experience in this online wedding dress shopping, and we are happy to share it with you.

 Here are some of the main suggestions for shopping wedding dress online.

1.     Know Your Measurements

Find out if the brand offers a choice between standard sizes or a made-to-measure option. If there is an opportunity, go to a professional seamstress who will take the correct measurements.

Amelii advises that it is better to choose a slightly larger size than a slightly smaller one, because when you receive the dress, you still will have an opportunity to adjust it to your size, because even if you choose made-to-measure, there is a possibility that you will need to make small adjustments to your local seamstress to fit dress perfectly. By the way, Amelii is sending pieces of fabric with the dress in case of adjustments needed.

2.     How do I know it will fit me?

 Understand which styles flatter your body shape and suit the wedding theme. To know your body type, you can use this tool Body Type Calculator
Also, ask for fabric samples, often classical white or ivory does not suit at all and it is better to choose a blush wedding dress or nude gown. Amelii offers brides fabric samples for both linings and various decorative fabrics, so that the bride can decide which shade suits her best and touch fabric to feel quality.

Deffinitely consult with the particular wedding dress shop, ask questions – trust the professionals. They will tell you about which fabric and style is better to choose for the theme, location and mood of your wedding. Amelii tries to answer all questions brides are asking, not only about the dress, but also about matching accessories and other practical questions.

3. Read Reviews

4. Fabric and Details

Pay attention to dress/fabric descriptions and assess the details. Sometimes it is hard to understand each detail in pictures, do not hesitate to contact bridal shop to receive more detailed information.

5. Order Early

Allow enough time for shipping and possible alterations, especially considering potential delays. Dress making process usually takes long period of time (for example, Amelii dress making process takes 3-4 weeks), also, needs to consider shipping time that could delay due to unforeseen circumstances that cannot predict neither seller, nor buyer. We suggest ordering dress 6-9 months prior wedding.

6. Return Policy

Note that for individually made handmade pieces returns are not accepted.

7. Secure Website

Only buy from secure websites and avoid suspicious or unverified online platforms. We suggest you to not only check the website, but also available social media accounts – Pintrest, Instagram, Facebook, Google.

8. Customization Options

If possible, choose online bridal shop that offers customization for a better fit and personal touch. Maybe you love the dress, but want to add a bit of lace on top? Or you want wedding dress with a feminine slit? Ask for custom changes.

9. Budget Considerations

Consider additional costs such as taxes, and shipping fees when setting your budget.

10. Communication with Seller

Clarify any doubts by communicating with the seller regarding the dress details, sizing, and delivery. Communication style can also say a lot about the seller.
