Hello everyone. I hope everyone is staying safe during this difficult time. I’m newly engaged and with everything locked down I don’t see bridal shops opening until summer. With my wedding being 10/4/20 I’m worried I won’t find anything I like in time. Has anyone ordered dresses to try on at home?
My sister is going through azazie for a bridesmaid dress right now. It was one of the sites I've seen highly recommended on here to go through. I see they do have wedding dresses you can try on at home so might be worth a shot!
The bridal shops in my area are still running but in a new way - the bride sends inspiration pics, the consultant does FaceTime or zoom with them, and the bride then does contactless pickup of three dresses to try on at home. Obviously not ideal, but still probably better than just ordering online! Maybe some shops in your area are doing things this way, as well
You can also order from David's Bridal and return it. Not ideal, but at least you can get an idea of dresses. Azazie and I believe Cocomelody also have try at home options. Just...you're cutting it close for ordering from most bridal shops. They're probably experiencing delays thanks to the virus, so you might have to be a bit more open minded with your shopping. Good luck!
If you want a designer gown I’d go on stillwhite, preownedweddingdress, nearlynewlywed they have designer gowns that a either brand new gowns brides never picked up, boutique samples and gowns brides never wore because they changed their minds or their wedding was canceled for really good prices. If you’re a thrifty bride looking for a bargain I’d try lulus, fashion nova, ModCloth, Etsy, eBay, cocomelody or azazie they all have reasonable prices.
Lunss Can Have Dresses Made Custom For You. You Just Send Them Your Pictures/Ideas Of What You Want. I've Also Ordered A Dress From Joybetty. They Can Make Them Custom To Your Measurements As Well And It Was Good Quality. Good Luck

I’ve seen post about Azazie. I’m going to look on their site today.
I got my dress from BHLDN. I had a regular appointment where I went into the store (in November), but my dress was delivered 3 days later, so you should eventually be able to get a dress from them if you want to have a more typical experience and you live near one of their stores. They also sell dresses online, and they have an online stylist service, so you could try that if you want something a little more personal while you're still at home.
Azazie and they do custom sizing too. Right now production time for bridesmaids is I think 9-10 weeks then it ships. But they also have the try on at home. I think they are doing better, I ordered ties and pocket squares from them yesterday. They already shipped. I had ordered something else from them at the beginning of March and never even got notifications about where it was. So I do think that things must be getting somewhat better for them.
Same for me, All bridal shops are closed in my city. So here’s some sites I’ve been looking on to find a dress, I found my dress on AliExpress. Make sure you look at customer reviews pics, read everything, and put in your actual measurements. My wedding is in November of this year and my dress will be here in about 1-2 months. It’ll be just fine, you’ll find your dream dress. • Coco Melody • JJs House•AliExpress •Azazie
If you’re open to renting- check our Tangerine rentals! They ship you different sizes to try on at home and then you can rent if you decide to do so. Could be a good option given the circumstances if you’re open to renting!
They are different from regular sizes, but most of the sites I looked at either have a chart where you can measure different points (bust, waist, hips, etc) and figure out your size there or if it's custom you can send in your measurements and they'll send you the dress (I think Azazie does this, but haven't ordered from them so maybe PP can confirm)
I ordered my dress at a David's Bridal at the end of January. They told me it would take a month to come in but it was at the store a week later for me to pick up. So depending on when things start to normalize again you might still be able to go to a store and look in person too. They said they recommend 6-8 weeks for alterations, but again mine were completed faster than that. Granted, it might be really busy there after they re-open
