I was a pretty serious lurker on this website up until getting married last month, but I did want to break my anonymous silence for a bit and do a quick review of http://www.weddingdressfantasy.com
, where I ordered my dress.
Firstly, Tova [owner] is a delight. Despite the time difference between Sydney and New Jersey, she is incredibly quick to respond to emails and she answers any questions very thoroughly. I’m sure I don’t need to tell any stressed out brides that quick and easy communication from any of the vendors makes our lives just that little bit easier!!!!
The dress I ordered was http://www.weddingdressfantasy.com/Black_and_White_Wedding_Dress_p/bwdn17.htm [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ml_RvjgOhjo&list=UUDTPLICBToQFwax4VtviAtg&index=10&feature=plcp] – same colour as the pic, with a corset back. I didn’t even bother with the custom sizing, I just measured myself and ordered a size from the chart. When my dress arrived, it fit perfectly without any need for tailoring… the materials were great quality and craftsmanship was beautiful. I had a LOT of people telling me I was being risky by ordering a dress online, but every single one of them [including my MUM] ate their words when they saw it.
I would absolutely, absolutely recommend ordering from http://www.weddingdressfantasy.com, especially if you’re on a budget, or you have slightly alternative tastes, OR if you just want something custom and a little bit different!
Here are a few pictures of the dress on the big day for anyone interested –

Omg, when I first saw the post for the dress I thought “ok, nice” but it’s not my personal style but OMG when I saw you in it!! A-MA-ZING!! You look spectacular and I LOVE love love the theme of your wedding!! It reminds me so much of Tim Burton and I love Tim Burton, so I really adore your wedding pics! And I had wanted to do something a little different for my wedding too, so now I’m taking inspiration from u lol
Any chance of getting more pics in the “Recap” section?? I’m sure there will be a LOT of girls who’ll like this! 🙂

I almost ordered my dress from there but being very wary asked a lot of questions first and was not comfortable with the answers. The photo of the dress that I picked out looked too ‘professional’ for her site compared to the others so I asked if the dress was one if her designs or if it was a copy. I also asked for additional pictures of this dress from other angles.
Her reply was to tell me that Yes she was the designer and no she had no other pictures of that dress. Not having any other pictures seemed odd enough…if you set up a professional model shoot I’m know they would take multiple pictures from other angles but the deal breaker for me was that while I was waiting for her answer to my questions I found out how to reverse image search a picture on google. The picture came up with the ACTUAL designer of the dress and other pictures of it in bridal shows.
Needless to say, I am not going with her. Instead I found a local seamstress to make it for me since I cannot order it from the original designer. I will not be paying much more by the time you add taxes and shipping plus the dress will be made specifically for me and I get to be there during the entire process to see it taking shape.

I got a dress from weddingdressfantasy (pm me if you want pictures).
I wanted a designer dress, with a few changes. It was abiut 1/2 the cost of the designer, and it came with a feee veil.
The con side, I’ll have to take it to a seamstress to fix some stuff (including beading mistakes, and fraying)
she’ll send you a few, *very* small pictures when the process is almost done, which made me so nervous. The measurements I gave her were bigger than I needed, but the dress is just long enough (luckily it’s not too small). So I would def suggest adding quite a few inches to the measurements.
Overall, it came out well and I’m excited (more so about marrying my fiancé)
Writing this on his phone on a road trip…sorry if it’s not very coherent

Tova’s dresses are not my style, but are gorgeous. For a little guilty pleasure dress porn, look up her youtube videos where she describes all of these gowns in detail- they are so girly!

Definately gorgeous, but may require quite a bit of work from a seamstress
