Not every bride dreams of walking into a bridal boutique and trying on every dress in the store. And if you’re thinking “yep, that’s me” please know that you are not alone. Lots of brides are not only making their own rules when it comes to how they are getting married, but also how they are shopping for their dresses, and many are turning to the internet to find the best places to buy an elopement wedding dress online. Buying your wedding dress online doesn’t have to mean a cheap knock-off from China (we’ve all read those horror stories). There are so many amazing options out there to suit all styles and budgets, from high-street bargains to high-end couture.

Over the last few years, all my brides have absolutely smashed it with amazing bride-style, all in their own authentic ways. Some have opted for vintage dresses, some have gone down the designer route, some have opted for something different from their local high street and some have opted for pre-loved dresses.

How To Choose An Elopement Dress

There are a few important aspects to consider when choosing a dress for your adventure elopement. The main thing is that you need to love it, because you’ll be wearing it on your wedding day and you’ll have pictures of you wearing it for years to come. The next factor to consider is how comfortable it is. Yes, that’s right, I said comfortable! Some dress boutiques out there will try to convince you that things need to be fitted, and that beauty is pain. But if you are planning to adventure on your wedding day, you need to have a dress that’s going to let you move freely, not hold you back.

Don’t love white? It’s your day, so wear whatever you want! I’ve had brides wear black, gold, grey and floral dresses. You’re not having a traditional wedding, so don’t feel pressured to dress like a traditional bride. You have your style, so feel free to rock it on your wedding day.

Where To Buy Elopement Wedding Dresses Online

Wedding dress shopping can be fun. But it can also be stressful, especially if you don’t see yourself as a typical bride. I’ve had a lot of my past brides say to me that they didn’t enjoy the experience of dress shopping, and many changed tactics and went online shopping instead. I asked them where they went to buy their dresses, and they told me. So now I’m sharing the results with you! Here are some of the best places to buy a wedding dress for your elopement online:

If you’re having an adventure elopement, you might decide that you don’t want to spend too much on a dress that may very well get trashed. Here are some really popular options with dresses under $300. And if you want to add even more options for the mix, try searching for “white maxi dresses” instead of wedding dresses and you’ll find even more options.
