Walking out of an Indian bridal boutique can leave you wondering why the outfits seem so expensive and why there aren’t many options. In this post, I’ll share the pros and cons of buying in-person versus online. Additionally, I’ll share some recommendations for online shops, based on real user reviews.
First, we need to highlight reasons as to why many physical stores lack variety and affordable options. Many of these shops invest a lot of money into sourcing, curating, designing, and creating unique outfits. These business processes can often translate into a limited selection of affordable clothing. On the other hand, these shops give you the ability to get in-person consultations, try outfits on, and see how the material feels. However, these benefits aren’t always enough to persuade brides to spend large amounts of money on an outfit. As a result, ordering outfits online often becomes an interesting option for buyers.
Yes, ordering online can offer the benefit of cost savings and a larger variety of outfits. However, there are the following factors to consider:
Communication – If you have issues with the status or quality of your order, you don’t always have the option to speak with the business in-person. In a nightmare situation, a website can simply stop responding to your messages. Trust me, this definitely happens.
Sizing – Properly taking your measurements is another challenge with buying outfits online. Most online stores provide guides for how to take measurements. However, even with good guidance, taking the correct measurements can be challenging.
Delivery Time– Receiving outfits don’t meet your standards can be a nightmare, especially if your outfits arrive at the last minute.
