I decided to get the dress of my dreams via a chinese based (US front) website. I asked all the right questions but got a terrible product that they wont take responsibility for and am out of pocket to the tune of $380 (+$45 for setting up the website). I’m not saying dont go down the “cheap from china” route but I would like to suggest you visit my website first before you make your mind up.
I’m doing what I should have done from the start. Looking at some lovely ready to wear dresses by the likes of http://www.bhldn.com and in the high street + going on the second hand /sample wedding dress websites.
Good luck and let me know if this is helpful. I’m forwarding all correspondence back to the lovely front women Kate of Store of Dresses so they can improve their product.

Wow. That is so scary. I can’t believe you held your composure. I would be a wreck and I could here my Fiance saying “I told you so.” But that price is hard to pass up. I am so sorry that happened. Keep up with your site because I think this will keep a lot of people from getting ripped off.
Does the BBB matter in this situation? Or won’t it matter because they are in China? I almost wonder if you can get the police involved??? I will keep visiting your site to see what happens. Best of luck!

Thank you for posting this. My friend bought a dress from China mail order and it was total crap.
She either gonna have to spend a load to get it altered or buy another dress.

“Does the BBB matter in this situation? Or won’t it matter because they are in China?”
@Breelink: Honestly, the only situation where the BBB matters after something has happened is when a US-based company is a member and actually cares about their BBB rating. Companies pay to become members. I worked for a company that no longer wanted to pay for BBB accredidation, and we tried as best we could to deal with complaints that came through there, but didn’t really sweat it. The best use of the BBB is for people thinking of doing business with a certain company, and seeing what, if any, complaints have already been lodged. Giving someone a low rating is pretty much all the BBB can do to anyone.

i have to say it is a real risk to buy the special dress online without trying on. but it is the price that i can’t say no to. i once got a cocktail dress from a chinese website and was totally worried about what i’m gonna get. but it turns out just fine. i got it from this website http://www.weddinggownsdress.co.uk. you can check the dress below. they sent me the photo before delivery just to make sure that i like the dress. very thoughtful. good luck with your purchase

I took a look at your website and you are just being unrealistic, your dress is a reasonably good replica of a really ugly designer dress. Its beaded and its a copy, i dont know what you were expecting.
I bought two chinese dresses one was real similar the other not so similar but both rather nice and when you pay beer prices you cannot expect to receive champaigne. If you are going to be fussy you should not buy sight unseen and you should not buy a copy, pay the money and get the original!

@sconzzy: sorry but I have to disagree. I looked at the pics and think its a really *bad* replica. Especially the picture of the dress full length. The fabric, the shape, the fit… All so different to the dress she wanted.
Sorry you’ve had such bad luck, I hope you get a dress sorted soon!

I’m so sorry that you had such a bad experience–the dress you got was not really a replica, but more of an “inspired by.” The company should have been honest that they could not re-create such an intricate and unusual design. Of the positive reviews I’ve seen for wedding dresses ordered off websites like those, it is pretty much limited to people who bought one of the advertised designs (ie not a custom), and were OK with a dress that was not 100% exactly like the original photo.
Just a friendly tip about your review site–please check your grammar and spelling. People may discount your review based on that alone.

@danielareyna96: I see your only two posts are about this company and you have two different dresses non of which are on you…..Are you from this company just trying to save the face of your company by having one good review?

@LaviniaRose2013: ? there are 4 different dresses up now by this person who claims to be wearing all of these on her wedding day…it seems a bit far fetched to me….just pointing it out as it is wrong to lie to people and make false reviews….

@MrsAu: LOL no, I meant that I agree with you, but I was too lazy to type up something similar to what you said, so I just jumped on your comment 🙂

I feel silly even asking this, but is there ANYONE who has ordered from Fuxz bridal, or knows of anyone’s experience of that site? I have a bunch of emails from their customer service and they have sent me photos of their work, but Yahoo.com says it is a scam. I am currently waiting to hear back from Milly’s to see if they can make the dress I have so far only seen on Fuxz.
