It's true that Etsy is every bride-to-be's tried-and-true wedding supply mecca. Established in 2005, the site has grown into a reliable and easily accessible e-commerce company. Once coined as a website for handmade crafts from local, up-and-coming artists, Etsy has evolved into a giant supplier of a range of impressive products from well-established creators. And, there's certainly no shortage of anything bridal either. From shoes, stationary, guest books, custom signage, to veils, and even artists to create your very own bridal portraits—you name it, Etsy has it. But what about the most important wedding purchase you're planning? While most brides wouldn't think to purchase their wedding dress from everyone's favorite purveyor of handmade-everything, we're here to tell you otherwise.

If you're looking for a bohemian wedding dress, it's time to take advantage of the ultimate wedding resource. Scoring your dream wedding dress on Etsy is just like buying any other piece of clothing elsewhere online—you just have to know your style, your size, and the return policy, right? Plus, since most items for purchase on Etsy are made-to-order, you can expect lots of custom attention from the Etsy seller crafting your wedding dress. Even though bohemian offerings dominate the Etsy wedding dress world, there's still something for everyone—from modern bridal separates to short wedding dresses perfect for an elopement, to all-over-lace long-sleeved wedding dresses fit for a princess.

Ahead, we're sharing 18 dresses that prove you can definitely find the perfect wedding dress on Etsy.

What to Look for in a Wedding Dress from Etsy

Now that you are (probably) convinced that a wedding dress from Etsy can be a total win, here are just a few important things to keep in mind before clicking "Add to Cart." First things first, keep your timeline at the forefront. We recommend brides start their wedding dress search about eight to twelve months prior to their wedding day. That way, you have plenty of time to do some research and experimenting before making the big purchase. When ordering your gown with an Etsy shop, it's best to order your dress about six months in advance to give you enough time for shipping, alterations, and any changes (or accessorizing) you may need to do. Take note of how many sales the shop has completed and read through a few reviews. Most importantly, reach out to your Etsy designer prior to placing your order to establish good communication—and to ensure you receive your (exact) dream bridal look!

FAQ
  • What type of wedding dress styles can I find on Etsy?

    A quick Etsy search will send you down a rabbit hole of beautiful wedding dresses. While there are a wide array of styles, fabrics, and silhouettes to choose from, the typical style tends to go Bohemian.

  • Are Etsy wedding dresses good?

    Wedding dresses on Etsy are often customizable and you can work with the designer to make your dream creation. Make sure to read shop reviews and be mindful of shipping timing.

  • How can I be sure that the dress will look good on me?

    Be mindful that bridal designers are experts in not only customizing each gown to your measurements, but also simply working with brides. If you have a concern about how it will fit or accentuating or minimizing a certain area of your body, communicate this with your Etsy shop and the designer will be able to guide you.
