Buying you wedding dress online

The number of wedding dresses to buy on the web has soared with the increase in online shopping. Sites such as eBay are brimming with everything from gowns and shoes to tiaras and veils, all at seemingly great prices.

But it's a risky process; many of the dresses will be shipped from the Far East, so you need to be sure of what you're ordering and whether it's likely to fit before parting with your money. And most website sellers don't offer refunds, so there's no chance of getting your money back.

Dress shopping tips
•    Try to avoid shopping on busy Saturdays when you may not get the best service.
•    Take along someone whose opinion you trust. Limit the shopping party to four people including you.
•    Feel free to shop on your own for the first couple of appointments, inviting mothers and bridesmaids once you have a shortlist.
•    Wear supportive lingerie and take along a strapless bra and a pair of shoes with roughly the heel height you are thinking of wearing.
•    Keep your budget firmly in mind. Trying on dresses way out of your price bracket will just be depressing.
•    Try on a variety of styles; many have little hanger-appeal but look great once they are on.
•    Take advice from the sales persons — they should know what they're talking about — but don't be bullied.
•    If one dress is not quite right, ask if the same designer has a similar style perhaps with a different neckline or sleeves that you may like better. Shops won't stock every style but they may be able to get in
something different for you.
•    Even if you spend a long time in one shop, on't feel you have to buy anything.
•    Don't buy on your first shopping trip. It's best to take time to reflect — you can always go back if you were lucky enough to have found 'the one' first time out!
