For many brides, one of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding is finding the perfect dress. But for others, this particular step may be less exciting and more stressful. Fortunately, finding the ideal dress is only as involved and time-consuming as you want it to be, and there are plenty of options far away from the bright lights of the bridal store. One option: Modcloth, the destination site for adorable, retro-chic dresses. Here are a few things to keep in mind when ordering a wedding dress off the site.
Pay close attention to sizes.
Anyone who has ordered off Modcloth knows sometimes sizes vary, so a medium might not always fit the same. Read reviews, view any available pictures and don’t hesitate to reach out to the site for help. They have stylists available to chat online who can help make sure you are ordering the right size.
If you see one you like, don’t wait!
Modcloth sells out of favorites fast, so act quickly if you’ve fallen in love with a dress. But don’t worry: Returns are easy and free, so if it doesn’t look quite as great in person, you can send it back without stress.
Sort by color and length.
Let’s be real: Modcloth has a HUGE selection, and it can be intimidating. One way around that is to sort first by length; the site offers options like “mid-length” and “maxi.” Then, sort by color to pare down results even more. It will result in a far more manageable list of options.
Be prepared for alterations.
Make sure you order your dress in plenty of time for alterations, just to be safe. Give it at least four months, and get in touch with people who do alterations beforehand to make sure that’s enough time. Include alteration costs in your dress budget so you don’t get a shocking surprise when the bill turns up.

Awareness about fair and sustainable travel continues to grow around the globe, with travelers everywhere considering a destination’s eco-friendly options before visiting. As public consciousness for this important aspect of tourism strengthens, tourists also look beyond just ecotourism and delve deeper into types of travel that allow them to respect the local culture, interact with locals and distribute benefits fairly.
If you’re not familiar with Turo, the brand is essentially a car-sharing service — kind of similar to Airbnb, except you're not renting out someone else’s home while you travel, but their car. If you use Turo during December, you can book some special experiences that take you to one of four Michelin-starred restaurants.
