“At-home” wedding dress trials?

My experience with them was altogether very positive. 

I took a bit of a gamble and just ordered the wedding dress and the dresses my bridesmaids chose without using their try-on program. I also bought ties for the groomsmen. The gamble paid off! The dresses are well made, and of good quality. The fit is perfect! 

I did have a couple slight issues, but they were quickly, and easily resolved:

1. I ordered a brooch from them, but they forgot to ship it. When I sent them an email about it, they replied right away and promptly sent me the brooch free of shipping charge.

2. The wedding dress and one of the bridesmaid dresses arrived with quite large grey/black smudges on them. I don’t know if this happened during packaging or what, but it was a bit of a shock. Once again, the Aria people were very apologetic and offered to pay for the drycleaning. They also mentioned that if drycleaning didn’t work, that they would re-make the two dresses for us, free of charge. I have yet to take the dresses to be drycleaned, but hopefully it will all work out.

So, yes, pretty positive experience over all! They are very nice and professional.

The main thing I was/am unhappy about is the shipping cost. I paid 265$ in shipping (I live in Vancouver)! That is even more than my wedding dress was (I bought my dress for 225$ — they have just recently raised their prices)! I should have probably asked them about shipping costs before I placed the order.

I hope this is helpful.

Good luck with your dress search!

Hi Bees!

There’s another great at-home try on called Floravere: https://goo.gl/v6B9XO 

I’m personally OBSESSED with this dress:

I tried Floravere and loved it too! I had been searching and searching for my wedding dress and loved how easy it was to open up my Bride Box at my apartment and then try on all the samples I picked from the comfort of home!  The customer service was great–I texted with the stylist a bunch and she was always super helpful (even helping me get some customizations I wanted). Plus, I could tell all the gowns I tried on were really high quality.  I can’t share pics of me in it yet (because, you know, bad luck before I officially walk down the aisle!) but here is a pic from their instagram:

I just got my Floravere gown(https://goo.gl/qIJyez)! I ordered a bride box to try the A. Hall and I absolutely love it. The bride box made me feel so special with the little pintrill pins and notebook and the little card describing the dress details. I felt more like a princess from that little package than I did in any of the high end boutiques. I literally wore the dress for 4 hours dancing around my apartment with my sister. It’s so fun!

Here’s a photo of the dress I saw on my potential wedding planner’s insta!
