I should’ve asked your question first :), but I just ordered my dress (above) from them on September 15.

http://www.wedding-dress-bee.net/strapless-trumpet-mermaid-lace-faced-satin-wedding-dress.html

Despite the posted tailoring time of 30 business days, I received an email titled “Order # 100001874 dress has been finished, pls check it!” on September 26! After “approving” photographs of MY completed dress attached to the email (below), I excitedly emailed back an “it looks awesome (or something equally exciting) to me”.  Within hours, I received a notice of shipment & tracking number!  


My experience summary up to this point.

 – Con – tracking number hasn’t showed an update since the 30th!

 – Pros – PRICE! (a similar dress that I thought I liked most would have cost 4xs this one that is just what I wanted), the tailoring time (I opted for the custom size), and an actual human who patiently replies to my “the tracking number still isn’t working” emails.

I don’t mind being the Guinea pig, so I’ll keep you updated!

@Chupirul12411:  My dearest ladies.

 

Take it from a bride who has BEEN there.

 

NEVER – EVER – EVER – EVER entrust the most important dress of your life to an ONLINE store.

 

I KNOW how much you want the dress of your dreams.

 

But there is a REASON these places are cheap.

 

I went through HELL with my dress purchase through one of these online shops.

 

I had to buy a last minute backup dress.

 

DON’T do it.

 

They require you pay up front – and if things don’t work out – if the dress is poorly made or doesn’t get to you on time – you have nothing to bargain with and you are OUT THAT MONEY.

 

Go TRY ON dresses – and buy from a REPUTABLE local vendor. 

 

Buy with PLENTY of time to receive the dress – ideally a YEAR in advance, but no later than 7 months – seriously.

 

And know that MANY dresses will look beautiful on you.

 

It doesn’t have to be the imaginary dress in your head. 

 

Buy one you’ve TRIED ON YOUR BODY.

 

Spend a little more if you have to – but NEVER buy online.

 

Yes – SOMETIMES it works out great. 

 

But it is a HUGE gamble.

 

Dont gamble your money – your time or your emotions.

 

It is NOT worth it.

 

sincerely, 

a bride who went there – and regrets it.

@MzGT_062213:   I hope yours works out as you hope.

 

Sometimes these things DO work out – but in my research and personal experience it’s just such a gamble.  I sincerely hope yours works out for you darling. 

 

Best to you.

@missysahib:  I’m sorry to hear about your awful experience. I would not wish that on anyone. Thank you for your concern but this far ahead of my day, I’m willing to take the risk. If necessary, I can initiate Plan B.  

@Chupirul12411:  My dress was in New York as of yesterday am 😉

@Chupirul12411:  

 

Honey – I’d love to tell which shop I used. Unfortunately, some of these dressmakers come onto these sites, create a profile and write posts to advertise for themselves.

 

Because the problem I had may end up becoming a lawsuit, I cannot tell you which online store I used. 

 

All I’m saying is – if you want your wedding dress to end up being a “plan B” dress and you are willing to risk money on the first dress – that’s your decision.

 

But because of what I went through, I am trying to warn as many brides as I possibly can.

 

It’s your money, your wedding, your dress and your decision.  Some brides do have good experiences with online purchasing through a dressmaker.

 

But it’s a gamble, darling.

 

Don’t put yourself in that position.

 

go to a REPUTABLE shop and purchase a dress you’ve tried on your body.

 

That’s my advice.

 

Good luck to you.

@missysahib:  

 

Just curious- but how would you go about suing them? Was the online vendor chinese? It would be pretty difficult to sue a company in a different country…

Interested Bees,

THE WAIT IS OVER!!!!! Below find an obnoxious number of pictures of my new, favorite thing….MY DRESS!!!!!

(Really, I just wanted to highlight all my favorite parts of the dress & mimic some of the site’s views with my actual dress.)

It needs some tailoring & a good steam closer to the date, but I am very happy to have a major check mark complete!!

Hope this helps another bee!

@Chupirul12411:  My mother did actually measure me “loosely” because I have an aunt that is a great seamstress! “Yay!” is exactly my feeling. Mine is only one experience, but I hope it helps you decide.  It is a big deal purchase, but what’s your timeline for giving it some thought?
