People confuse designer bridesmaid dresses and those labeled as haute couture, “high fashion” in French, bridesmaid dresses designed and created by high-end fashion designers for specific individuals who ordered them. Designer bridesmaid dresses, on the other hand, are also made by high-end designers but are mass produced and marketed to public consumers. Whether haute couture or designer, however, one can now buy bridesmaid dresses online done by big names in the fashion industry.
Buying them online has several advantages over getting them from actual stores:
- The collection of bridesmaid dresses online is more extensive, meaning, there are more styles, designs, and colours to choose from.
- There are choices for the mode of payment: cash on delivery, credit or debit card, PayPal, and other similar modes using wireless transfer of money.
- Online stores usually offer more discounts and special promotions with accompanying “freebies” such as 20% off on the next purchase.
- Designer bridesmaid dresses sold online are cheaper than those sold in actual stores. Some online stores even take off additional percentages when customers buy during off-peak months of weddings.
The most important thing before buying your bridesmaid dresses online, however, is to know the exact sizes of your bridesmaids and the overall styles that will be most suitable for their body types. That way, you don’t waste money, time, and effort doing an online purchase.
