Oh no, you poor thing. ๐Ÿ™ I’d want a 100% refund and an apology!

I hope you can find a lovely dress somewhere else.

I’m sorry you had a bad experience.  There are a lot of websites like that.  I think you just need to be careful and notice that the website doesn’t claim to sell authentic dresses, they are all replica dresses.  Usually websites that sell replica dresses have their own size/measurement chart (rather than the designer’s chart) and the ability to have the gown made in a lot of different colors (which is not really the case with an authentic gown).

I ordered my Watters dress from Netbride.com, who only sells authentic dresses.  If you are looking for a discount on the real dress, I would recommend going through them.

That sucks!  Just a really bad reminder that if something seems to good to be true, it probably is! ๐Ÿ™

Oh, I’m so sorry you had to go through this. I can’t believe Paypal allows this site to use them!

I’m so sorry you’re going through this! Unfortunately these types of scams are all over the internet. I purchased what I hoped would be my wedding shoes from one of these sites. It looked legit and it seemed local. I thought it was one of those warehouse/outlets for shoes.

I paid $150 and received -not only fake- but very low quality shoes that looked nothing like the shoes I ordered and 5 sizes too big. In a box with duct tape. Sent from China…yikes…the site said free returns and all but no one replied to my emails nor calls. After a while they closed their website and changed to a new URL.

I contacted Palpal but they can not do anything unless you did NOT recieve your items.

These scams annoy me so much!

Did you pay for the dress with a credit card through Paypal? I’d do a chargeback. Don’t pay for this! And, if you send the dresses back, send them in a way that is trackable! I always use my credit card when paying merchants through Paypal – it just makes me feel better to have that extra layer of protection.

OMG! I’m SO sorry this happened to you. I’d definitely press Paypal by disputing this, and get your bank/credit card involved, too. Places like this should NOT be allowed in business!!! I wish you all the best in finding your beautiful dream gown ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes, we just deleted five posts from the same IP promoting a series of dress stores based in China.

You know what sucks? The IDEA of Weddingbee Sock Puppets sounds adorable and delightful. Like a bunch of sock monkeys all wearing veils and talking about invitations and cocktail hours to each other. But in REALITY, sock puppets are NOT adorable and NOT delightful.

My experience was similar–JUST DONT DO IT!

They sent me my wedding dress that looked nothing like what it was supposed to look, and refused to give me the full refund, even though they agreed in an email that the dress was not made the way it was supposed to be made–it was embroidered in black!  They said sorry–the person who made your dress will be held responsible. On top of that, I had to pay out of pocket to send it back, which cost me over $50 (Fedex or UPS were over $150!) They did offer to re-make the dress, but after seeing the first version, I wasn’t about to commit to waiting for a re-make.  Let this be my lesson which cost me over $150.  Buy a dress from the store or this site: http://www.bestbridalprices.com  I’ve used them before (their store is located in IL) for bridesmaids dresses and just re-ordered my dress.  They are more expensive than chinese rip-offs, but less expensive than most stores. You will save at the end, trust me.
