- Wedding: April 2010
DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY – NOT TO MENTION THEY WILL RUIN YOUR WEDDING EXPERIENCE!!!!! I also met with DeeDee (the owner) to have a corset back added to my wedding dress. She was not very polite to begin with and didn’t even take my measurements on our first meeting, which should have been a red flag to start. I called to see if I could come back to try my shoes on with my dress and they said that they could have it ready a week early and it would be no problem. When I went back to pick up my dress, it was a MESS! It did not even resemble a corset. She rudely tried to convince me that she is a professional and that was what a corset looked like (although it looked NOTHING like the photos I brought). She then told me that she couldn’t match the dress color so she made the entire thing out of DRESS LINING! -how cheap! and then to top it off, it didn’t fit! the top of the dress was too big and she said that the corset could be tightened and it would fit, but failed to tell me that it could NOT be pulled tighter because the loops that were created were entirely too big and all of them were different sizes and didn’t align. After that, she told me that the ribbon could not lay flat because of “engineering” which is the craziest thing I have ever heard. If she was such a professional, she would have seen with her “trained” eyes that I had a sloppy, non-functional corset that I could have never worn on my wedding day and should have NEVER allowed a client walk out of the door like that! The craziest part was that she finally tried to convince me that it was “our lack of communication” that caused the outcome and she got very angry with me. I thought photos of what I wanted would have been enough to communicate what I wanted my dress to look like and just assumed it would fit!!! Finally, after my phone calls,comments from other professionals, and photos of the “mess” they refunded me half of my money and then claimed that the day AFTER I picked up my dress the proper materials (not the dress lining) flew in on the jet from New York!~ this obviously was a lie otherwise they would have told me that the fabric had not yet arrived. POOR WORK and POOR BUSINESS!!!
