I saw a post a while ago about the website FirstWeddingDress.com, but I was wondering if you all can leave me some fed back if you’ve delt with the site before. I know it wont be the same exact quality as the orginial dress I want, but I just can’t spend $900 on a dress right now.
I know a lot of people have said as long as you send them your exact measurements, you should be safe and that is exactly what I plan on doing.
I know you can pay through Paypal, which makes me feel SO much better! If I never receive it, I will for sure get my money back and I have about 10 months to find a dress so time isnt really an issue with me, but I am still debating.
Please let me know if you’ve personally delt with this site before!
I was also thinking about ordering one from Shades of Pale. Has anyone had any luck with that site? I may be leaning more towards that one…

I found Weddingbee while researching Shades of Pale. There are several other posts on Weddingbee that have actual photos of dresses made by Shades of Pale.
Here is one of the dresses I found with photos: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/shades-of-pale-ordered-on-line
It’s not my syle dress, but the quality looks good.
I actually ordered mine from them after having a horrible experience from DHGate. Amalia is the contact that I’m working with. She sent me tons of photographs of actual dresses they have made. I’m waiting to get mine in a few weeks. And I don’t have to pay the balance until I see a photograph of the finished dress.

@Kelli227: I would advise you to add an inch to your width measurements. Most replica manufacturers will tell you that the finished product can vary up to an inch in either direction. Easier to take it in than let it out.

Firstweddingdress.com is definitely a fraudulent company! I had a terrible experience with that company. I ordered my dress from them in early February and they never sent it! You may want to read this:

Last time I checked, they took their website down too.
Maybe you would have better luck with Shades of Pale as they seem to be a legit dress company. Try to pay through PayPal if it’s an option because then you’ll at least be covered for the full amount of your payment just in case anything goes wrong. Best of luck to you 😉

Thank you so much for all the replies! I wasnt able to get “the one” But I did get an awsome $1200 dress on Craigslist for $300. 🙂
I just kept seeing all the people saying STAY AWAY!
I might, just might, order it in a few months and seeing where I get since I know I have a dress here for me. I’ll keep everyone posted on what I do!
and @futuremrscarpenter, Keep us updated on your dress!

I got my dress 1 week before my 5/27 wedding. Luckily it only needed very minor alterations at the top since it is strapless and I did not want to keep pulling on it all evening.
I am very happy with the finished product. Amalia and Gloria were both nice, but the shipping was an issue because they mailed my dress to the billing address instead of the shipping.
However, there are several ladies that have not recieve their dresses and 1 that I know of that missed her wedding date AND the Shades of Pale facebook page keeps deleting their negative posts.
It was truly a blessing that I recieved my dress before the wedding – Thank Goodness! I don’t know what I would have done!
