Online Bridal Shopping. Is it a thing now?

I’m an avid fan of online shopping – so much so that my home page is set to the new arrivals page of my favourite store. Society has now become so keen on online shopping that it’s literally possible to plan an entire glamorous wedding from the comfort of your own home in your very unglamorous pyjamas.

I was originally skeptical, an old school fan of embracing the entire old school process of dragging your entire bridal party to shop after shop on the search for ‘The One’. But a few hours recently spent Online Bridal Shopping on Shopbop in their Wedding Boutique to plan my own – albeit imaginary – wedding may have just converted me…


THE DRESS


Online Bridal Shopping

Katie May – Poipu Low Back Gown
$2,230.57
Usually I’d be most skeptical of buying the dress online – but one look at the amazing craftsmanship of this Katie May dress will set even the most skeptics mind to ease. My number one tip? If you’re in between sizes – go the one up and get an incredible dress maker to fit the bigger parts of your dress to your body for the perfect fit.
Champagne charmeuse peeks through ivory lace on this Katie May gown, creating a graceful, romantic look. Scalloped edges trace the bodice and deep scoop back, which closes with a hidden zip. Spaghetti straps. Fully lined.


THE SHOES

Now I know these shoes are nearly as expensive as the dress – but one look at them and I think you’ll agree that they’re worth every dollar…
Gleaming wing-like plates trim the front of these mirrored leather Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, lending a striking, sculptural finish to the pair. Buckled, double ankle strap. Covered platform and stiletto heel. Leather sole.
