Ones that seem to be recommended most often around here are Fabulous U and Dressily Me.

I used jjshouse, but not for my wedding dress, for another ceremonial dress that was essentially a dolled-up bridesmaids dress. You can see my review here, it really was perfect. 

People here also love dressilyme.

I considered using Ieie Dress (on etsy).  I think she’s in New Jersey?

@mkendrick:  4 weeks for custom from Dressilyme.  1-2 weeks for off-the-rack.

I ordered my dress from DressilyMe and am completely satisfied. My dress looks great and fits like a dream. I didn’t get expedited shipping and my dress was at my door less than a month after I placed the order

@mkendrick:  whatever you do, DO NOT go with Fabulous U. The bridesmaid dresses i ordered from them looked nothing like my inspiration pic. I gave them a chance to fix it but it didnt work out. Communication was fantastic to begin with but they kept making excuses on their delays on getting new pics of the dress to me.  I was lucky to get my money back as i paid through Paypal and put in a dispute before my 45 days were up. I think thats why Fab u were delaying me.

I know of two other Bees that had bad experiences with Fab u. One didnt get her money back and another who got her money back only after she agreed to delete her thread on the awful dress they made her…. buyer beware.

@mkendrick:  I wouldn’t recommend Dressilyme if you are thinking of lace or beading, their work is not very good on those, but for other materials thy are ok

Other people here are trying Neptune couture which seems to be good, although I’ve not seen posts of their work just the pictures on the website…

I had a fabulous experience with jjshouse, so i recommend them, but im not sure they do custom. I had an awful dress made by dressilyme. Would never recommend them

 

others i have heard good things about but have never experienced are fabulousu, babyonline on dhgate, jeff liu and neptune couture

@dv3849:  I’m also a dressilyme lace victim…but a friend had hers made, not in lace and it looked fine. I’m thinking that once I get my dress from jbs I’ll post pictures side by side…

of course that assumes that jbs’ version is ok…

@dv3849:  I actually laughed when I got it,it was that bad. honestly, i think they picked up some old net curtain they had laying about in the warehouse and used it for the tulle. Don’t even get me started on the lace.

Dress is in production since 25th july, I’ve been promised pics next week so we’ll see. I will post in the jbs thread. How is yours going? Did you order with jbs at the end?
