Bridesmaid dress shopping can be stressful, to say the least, but also a lot of fun if done the right way. Read below as we have outlined why you should buy your dress from Mia's Bridal and save yourself from the stress of online shopping.
The Advantages of In-Store Shopping:
- Getting the right size bridesmaid dress. Doing your shopping in-store is the best and only way to insure you get the right fit. You can have the dress you choose altered to fit you on the premises. Bridesmaid dresses are not ordered to custom measurements, so almost always some sort of alterations are needed. We have an in-store alterations department and charge a lesser alteration fee for gowns purchased from Mia’s, plus we can give expert advice on special sizing situations.
- Choosing the right color for your bridesmaid dress. Shopping in-store allows you to see how the color of the bridesmaid dress compliments your skin tone. Many images of bridesmaid dresses online are photo-shopped, meaning colors can vary. Shopping in-store allows you to know exactly what you're getting, and multiple dresses can be ordered together to ensure they are dyed the same. We have swatches and dress samples in an assortment of colors and fabrics for you to compare and make your color selection. We can also give you free swatches of the color you selected to use to plan other aspects of your wedding.
- Getting a good quality bridesmaid dress. A major disadvantage of buying a bridesmaid dress online is that you can't determine the quality until it's already ordered and delivered to you. Shopping in-store allows you to feel the material and quality of the dress so that you can be sure you're getting the best. We quality control all gowns upon arrival, as well as press them out so they are not a wrinkled mess 🙂
- Avoid hassle of mailing back returns. Online shopping can be a great convenience in the beginning, but if you are dissatisfied with your bridesmaid dress when it arrives, suddenly online shopping becomes a nightmare. You must contact the company, mail the item back, check to make sure it was returned, etc. You can save a lot of time and energy in the long run shopping in-store.
- Single point of contact to organize your bridesmaid order. Are you allowing your bridesmaids to choose their own style? Or do your bridesmaids live all over the country? Mia's Bridal can assist you with the management of your bridesmaid order to ensure it is placed on time, and ensure your bridesmaids are following your criteria about fabrics, colors, designs, etc. This allows you to contact one store (and speak to a person) should you have any questions or just need to check-in on the status of your order.
- Top Designer Styles. We at Mia's Bridal have hand-selected our bridesmaid designers and styles. Choose gowns from top designers, such as Bill Levkoff, Morilee, and Belsoie to name a few.
- Expert bridal consultants to assist you in your search. You have a vision for your wedding party, and we have the staff to assist you to make that vision a reality. Allow our team to take the stress out of bridesmaid dress shopping!
