After her beloved pops the question, most brides-to-be are excited to start wedding dress shopping. But snooty shop owners and endless appointments to try on gowns can make the whole process stressful. So Floravere, the “first direct-to-consumer” bridal boutique wants to change all that by bringing the dresses right to your house.
Think of it as the Warby Parker of wedding dresses. All you do is browse their collection online and choose the gowns you want to try on, and they’ll be delivered to your doorstep within three to seven days. They charge $25 per dress, but if you buy one, it’s refundable. Then you can invite your squad over for some bubbly and let the fashion show begin, all without the pushy salespeople.
When you’re done with them, you just return the samples using the handy prepaid shipping label. And if you found something you like, head back to the site to customize your dress. You can adjust everything from the train length to the sleeve length. And you’ll get it in three to four months, much shorter than the six to nine you’ll wait for a couture gown.
The wedding dresses at Floravere are all made by people who worked at designers like Dior and Zac Posen, so you can still get the designer dress you’ve dreamed of. And they’re more affordable than many bridal boutiques, they don’t sell any gowns over $4000. Plus you get to check them out in the comfort of your own home!
