These are the kind of wedding gowns that look like they've been custom made to fit your every curve and fulfill every personal styling whim — and the best part? They're also the kind of gowns that happen to come at an off-the-rack price. While a bespoke gown is the dream route for many, it's not exactly budget-friendly. That's where these gorgeous dresses come in. With Reem Acra, Theia, J.Crew, BHLDN, and Vera Wang's David's Bridal collection all offering up dreamy options sans the exorbitant price tag, it's easy to see why these off-the-rack looks are begging to be worn down the aisle. Ready to shop the wedding gown of your dreams and have it at your door in just a matter of days? Head right this way.

As a recent bride myself, I know that shopping for a wedding dress is an amazing experience, but one that can be totally stressful. Trying on several dresses a day for a few solid weekends is enough to wear a bride out, especially if she can't find the perfect fit. While you could virtually try on thousands of gowns with some upcoming AR technology, thanks to Brides.com, your other option is to shop online for your dream dress.
- What should a bride know before starting her online search (i.e. measurements, the type of shoe she will be wearing, etc)? The first thing a bride should know is what type of style she is going for on her wedding day. The dress can really set the tone and mood for the entire wedding day and should coordinate appropriately. For example, if she is having an outdoor garden wedding, then a tea-length dress would be sweet. However, if the wedding is inside a formal hotel ballroom then she might be better suited in a full-length gown. Of course, nothing is set in stone, and some rules are meant to be broken.
- What are some potential pitfalls when going online to purchase a wedding dress? Unfortunately, there are a lot of scammers out there, so it is important to be cautious when it comes time to buying the actual wedding dress online. I always suggest using secure payment options like Escrow when buying online. Never pay for a dress online with a check, wired money, money order, or cashier check.
