    Hi Olga,

    Thanks very much for yr blog on “What you need to know before buy a wedding dress online”,

    Wow, you really give great tips on the needs to look out before buying a wedding dress online.

    Yr pt 6 is good – it is very important to have the possibility of 24-hour chat with an online supplier. 🙂

    One of the big mistake is I find people purchasing
    online wedding gowns at a great discount with impulse and much too earlier than the wedding date, maybe say 2 months earlier but because of the great discounts, they purchased the wedding gown.

    The problem comes when after 2 months, the bride-to-be realised that she has put on too much weight. 🙁

    You have a resourceful site, I will tell my friends about it. 🙂
