I was searching etsy & came across a new etsy seller of wedding gowns & bridesmaid dresses that had absolutely NO sales. I contacted the shop to see more photos of the dress I was interested in to make sure the photos were legit. I also asked how long the dress would take to make so that if something went wrong I could file a Paypal dispute to get my money back. After emailing the seller for a few days, I asked if they were willing to let me pay HALF of the cost of the dress down & then get photos sent to me of MY finished dress so I could approve them & then pay the remainder. The seller agreed, (I think mostly because I was her first sale) — Everything went so smoothly, so here is the timeline & details broken down.
Purchase date: December 16th. Paid 328.50$$
Picture were sent date: January 4th. — I approved same day. Paid the remaining balance of 275.50
Ship Date: January 5th.
Arrival to my home date: January 7th.
So my total cost was 604$ including shipping. From order date to arrival was 22 days. So fast!
Here are the listing photos of the dress on her etsy page:
Heres the final photos I was sent of my dress:
& Here is the dress today on my body:
I am SHOCKED at how well its made. It is BEAUTIFUL. Ive had dresses made from JBS, which is double the cost AT LEAST & this dress knocked their replicas out of the water IMO. The corset is gorgeous!!!The beading is immaculate and it fits really well for a replica. I will need minor alterations on the bust and where the skirt flares out.
I would definitely recommend this company to you bees with a budget! They can make any dress from my understanding, so Just ask for photos and details. & a lot of their dresses in their store are 300-400$. Very affordable.
Just wanted to share my experience.
Its Etsy seller CaraBridal — Like I said, they are brand new. Etsy wont let me leave my review on there until the 18th, but I will be leaving them a 5 star review.

@allyfally: Yea its crazy good made. I told the seller I was going to be sharing my experience online and hopefully they will get more sales because it was seriously a breeze ordering from them!

@marbles30: I think so too! It kills the JBS mermaid– plus the fabric is SO much lighter and more comfortable.
@nephthys: Yes they are. I know youve been struggling with JBS. JBS was honestly a shitty experience. A hassle, bad communication, and attitude. They turned down my revisions and it just sucked all around. I got one good ballgown out of them though. Idk what your budget is like, but I know they cant get your neckline right. I think this seller could EASILY do that dress you want, and probably for 400$ or so. It wouldnt hurt to email them and ask?
@iloverocks: thanks:) I was pleasantly surprised.
