    What to Look For When Buying Bridal Party Dresses Online

    • Trusted Retailers: First and foremost, it's important to always shop from reputable and trustworthy retailers. It's best to avoid any sites that don't include detailed FAQs or clear shipping and return policies.
    • Style and Fit: You’ll want your squad to lookandfeel their best on the big day, so finding online retailers that offer bridal party dresses in a wide range of sizes and silhouettes is of the utmost importance. For the dress to fit perfectly, your bridal party should know their measurements and always refer to a retailer's fit guide. You can also select one color and let your friends pick out their style to make sure it’s something they love and feel super comfortable in.
    • Fabric: Lastly, since you're not viewing dresses in person, it's important to order swatches to determine whether certain colors and fabrics will work well with your wedding dresses and color palette. Many sites on this list, like Dessy, let you order swatches for a low cost. And if you want your bridal party to match perfectly, it's imperative to choose dresses that are from the same dye lot.

    FAQ

    • When should I order my bridal party dress?

      To be safe, we suggest purchasing bridal party dresses six months before the wedding date. This will allow time for any shipping delays or fittings and alterations.

    • Can I order swatches if I'm not sure what color will work with my wedding dress?

      Absolutely! Many retailers, such as Birdy Grey, offer the ability to order fabric swatches so that you can test out the color and fabric before you place your order.

    • How will I know what size I am?

      Since you won't be trying on your bridal party dress in person, it's very important to know your measurements before you place your order. Many brands offer extensive fit guides and concierge services to help you achieve the perfect fit. Also, make sure to check out any customer reviews to see if certain styles run big or small. Kennedy Blue will even let you sample dresses before purchasing.
