You’re engaged, you’re excited, and you’re probably overwhelmed. There’s so much to do from now until your big wedding day — dress shopping, finding bridesmaid dresses, ordering favors, flowers, and on and on. You could block out every other weekend and some week nights from now until your wedding and spend that time hopping from one boutique to another in the hopes of scoring something you like — or you can pour yourself a glass of wine, hit the couch, and surf these best wedding boutiques online for many of your wedding needs.
We’ve become accustomed to shopping online and, thanks to fair return/exchange policies and perks like free shipping, this practice has given us our free time back. Why should it be any different when it comes to wedding shopping? These 7 stellar online wedding boutiques are worth your time and wedding budget.
1) Lace & Liberty
Wonderland Skirt ($900)
With a motto like “bridal reimagined,” Lace & Liberty is one online boutique that serves up traditional gowns, but also inspires creative souls to buy separate bridal skirts and tops to create their own look. Its collection of “little white dresses” are casual enough to wear after your wedding and there are rental dresses if you can’t fathom investing in a dress you’ll never wear again. Sample sales offer up to 60 percent off, you can request a fabric sample and talk to consultants for free, and you can order a “Try On At Home Box” with several dresses at once.
2) ASOS Bridal
Shop bridal dresses, bridesmaids gowns, men’s wedding suits, accessories, shoes, jewelry, and even wedding guest dresses at ASOS Bridal. Its designs mainly keep in line with ASOS’ modern aesthetic and prices are killer if you’re on a budget. You can score a vintage-inspired lace gown for less than $300 and a crystal bead veil for $32.
3) Fwrd.com The Wedding Shop
Style-conscious brides who love big-name designers and want a gown and accessories that think outside the bridal box should head on over to Fwrd.com The Wedding Shop where they’ll find a kindred soul. Prices aren’t cheap and most designs hover around $1000 or (much) more, but familiar high-fashion names like Oscar de la Renta, Givenchy, and Stella McCartney serve as the perfect explanation for that. The shop also stocks gorgeous bridal shoes and accessories, bridal lingerie, bridesmaids dresses, and wedding guest attire.
Lucca Gown ($900)
Consider it your one-stop wedding shop: BHLDN.com has vintage-inspired bridal gowns, dresses and suits for your entire bridal party, lingerie, shoes and accessories, and even cake accessories, stationary, and centerpieces. Most of the selection can be described as traditional with a romantic twist (think simple and sleek City Hall gowns, Boho lace gowns with bell sleeves, and marble and copper cake cutters and servers).
Delivering high fashion at its best, Net-a-Porter bridal is the online boutique where you’ll spare no expense to look sensational. Designers include Roland Mouret, Oscar de la Renta, Gabriella Hearst, and Roksanda and, as expected, prices aren’t cheap: gowns start at around $500 and climb all the way up to $10,000. Choose full gowns or mix and match with separate skirts and blouses.
Bridal Robe ($178)
While it’s true that Reformation doesn’t offer a huge selection of bridal or bridesmaids dresses, their edits are made by some seriously fashionable folks. Offering flowy, romantic gowns in silk charmeuse, velvet slips, and pleated, floor-length wrap dresses you’ll wear long after your wedding, this shop has something special for every bride. All clothing is made with sustainable materials and methods and adorable wedding throw-ins include a silk charmeuse bridesmaids robe and wedding stationary.
Skye dress ($3,400)
Try on scores of Floravere wedding dresses for free (in the comfort of your private bedroom) and find the winning style that makes you sing. Floravere gowns are organized by style — New Romantics, Minimal Chic, or Boho Babe — and you can also shop veils, headbands, and cute gifts for your bridal party. Gown prices range from a little more than $1000 to $5000.
