I am very disappointed and upset with bridalblissdesigns I bought the Retro Inspired Wedding Gown with Flower Detail from her, order on 2-5-10 for $614.00. I received the dress on 6-24-10. I took the dress to my seamstress and she told me that my dress was a disaster.
Problems with the dress include:
-The hem on back of the dress is 2 inches longer than the front of the dress.
-The slip of the dress is uneven and hangs 3 inches below the hem of the dress
-The bust line is uneven
-The flowers on the front of the dress do not line up in the center of the dress
-The sweet heart neckline bunches on the sides
-The dress was made so badly that she couldn’t take it in the waist or the bust with out taking the whole dress apart
My seamstress told me that the dress was manufactured and not in fact handmade. If I had all these things fixed on the dress it would cost me $347.85 (not including the cost to take-in the dress at waist and the bust). I requested a full refund from bridalblissdesigns. Her response to me was “Since the dress was handmade and not mass produced by a professional company there are going to be some slight odds and ends that aren’t prefect” I am sorry but a good seamstress/dressmaker would know how to measure and cut and sew in a straight line and that a huge mistake of the back of the dress longer than the front would be not overlooked. Also, I would like to know; what is the difference between a “professional machine” and a regular sewing machine and how that would affect the quality of the dress. Bridalblissdesigns offered “provide me a discount by ignoring your remaining balance of $119.60”. I have been to 3 a different seamstress to look at the dress. The quote of $347.85 was the lowest one I received. Many told me that the problems where so severe that they could not make alterations. It has been over 3 weeks since bridalblissdesigns last response to me. I cannot express the amount of stress and disappointment that this matter has created for me. I had to buy a completely new dress that has cost me 5 times the bridalblissdesigns dress cost me. My advice is to not buy from bridalblissdesigns.

How did you pay for the dress? I believe paypal has a complaint process that may allow you to get your money back. If you paid with a credit card, contact them. Some will refund your money to you if the seller misrepresented the product.

Bees, please be careful with this poster. She appears to have just listed this dress for sale in the classifieds section for 600 dollars. Just wanted to offer a heads up to everyone, as I do not feel this is a completely ethical listing.

Did you put the purchase on your credit card? Some of them have ways that you can dispute a purchase if you are not satisfied and the vendor is unwilling to work with you. I hope you can work something out, it sounds like that dress is a disaster and probably not worth the alterations on it.

Very classy… The dress is so terrible but you’re willing to sell it to another bride by speaking so highly of it? I’d say you got what you deserved.

After having such a disappointing experience – inparticular that someone (the company) would treat you so terribly – why would you try and sell the disaster dress to another unsuspecting bride and make her wedding plans difficult. I would hope that you would not want another bride to have the experience that you described here…….. thats shameful.

Bees… This poster just joined Weddingbees today. This is the only thread she started, but she posted three classified ads. I have a feeling that she only joined to sell things. I don’t think she cares about any of the other brides.

wow if you know the dress is a disaster that was manufactured rather than handmade why did you advertise it in the classifieds as a custom made high quality dress and expect to get $600 for it?

Based on what you posted here and the classified listing that you posted, you don’t seem like a very ethical person. I hope you see the error of your ways and remove the dress listing from the classifieds.
@Corykru: A big thank you to you you for researching this “bee” for us 🙂

@Corykru: Thank you for posting her post here as a comment on her ad. Hopefully it will protect some other bride from getting scammed by this person.

Any time :-). I want to make sure no one ends up heart broken over something that may be potentially poor quality and etc. I care a lot about weddingbee and the bees!
