Why say “Yes!” Not “Add to Cart!” When It Comes to Your Wedding Dress

Updated: Aug 24, 2023

Each week we feature our blog topic on Gigi's Bridal Instagram and TikTok. We'd love to hear from you!

Welcome to Gigi’s Bridal, where we celebrate the joyous journey of finding the perfect wedding dress. At Gigi’s Bridal, we understand that choosing the gown for your special day is a momentous occasion filled with excitement, emotions, and dreams. As a bride-to-be, you deserve an unforgettable experience that reflects your unique style and showcases your inner radiance. In this blog, we aim to simplify your wedding gown shopping experience and equip you with the confidence to discover your bridal look.

Do you have a wedding gown in your online shopping cart? Are you so terrified of shopping for a wedding gown in person that you believe buying a wedding gown online will save you all the trouble? Are you thinking about buying a wedding gown online but there’s that tiny voice in your head telling you not to do it?

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, then this is for you.

If you’re even thinking about buying your wedding gown online, I need you to pump the breaks and stick with me. Today, we are talking about three reasons why you should buy your gown at a bridal boutique: Fit, Quality, and Experience.


Just because you are a certain size in your favorite jeans does not mean that you are that same size in wedding gowns. To make matters even more complicated, each wedding designer has their own size chart. You are taking a gamble buying a wedding gown without trying on the gown or seeing it in person. At Gigi’s Bridal, we have curated a selection of lightly loved wedding gowns, none of which have been altered and each are in their original size. This is intentional, because we believe that each bride deserves a gown that has been tailored to her and once a gown is cut, there is no going back.


Gigi’s Bridal, like many bridal boutiques, have a high standard of quality. At Gigi’s Bridal, our expert stylists can provide you with a better understanding of the materials and workmanship that went into each gown. The quality of an online wedding dress can vary widely. The gown may look beautiful in pictures, but the actual dress may be poor quality, with cheap fabrics, poor construction, and subpar detailing. This is a gamble when shopping online with the proliferation of editing, lighting, and rendering. There are some not so honest businesses out there that view the wedding industry as an opportunity to take advantage of people in a vulnerable state. Experience

I get it, you hate shopping as it is—you are critical of your body and want to save yourself the hassle of all the opinions. Shopping for your wedding gown can be daunting but I am going to literally beg you to trust the journey. The journey to your wedding gown may be challenging but that is why expert stylists are your trusted advocates and confidant. I promise that your “YES!” to the dress moment will be way more memorable and cherished than hitting “buy” on that screen.

Bonus, you will be supporting a local business’ dream! Take the time to learn about the bridal boutique you are shopping at and hear their story. You will find inspiration in their journey and allow you to feel the value of buying in-person.

Finding the perfect wedding dress is a journey filled with excitement, anticipation, and countless memorable moments. At Gigi’s Bridal, we understand the significance and nuances of this special occasion and strive to create an unforgettable experience for every bride-to-be. Our wide range of exquisite dresses, exceptional customer service, and attention to detail ensures that each bride feels radiant and confident on her wedding day. Whether you're dreaming of a classic ball gown, a sleek and modern silhouette, or a bohemian-inspired creation, we are here to make your vision a reality. Let us be a part of your love story and help you find the dress that embodies your unique style and personality. Your wedding day is a celebration of love, and we are honored to play a role in making it truly a lifetime memory.
