The only thing I’ve done with Aria is request fabric swatch samples.  They were super responsive, I think I had the swatches that I requested in less than a week- they sent me the colors that I requested in a couple of different fabrics, plus a couple that were in the same color family.  I believe they even came with a nice handwritten note as well.  I thought it was a good indication for how they handle their business.

I also just requested Aria swatches recently and am waiting for them. From what I’ve heard, they seem to be pretty good.

We used them for our September wedding and they were great.  One of my bridesmaids lives in LA near one of their stores and actually went in to try on dresses in person.  They let her take pictures of her dress as well as the ones my other 2 maids were ordering.  They ran pretty true to size and needed few to no alterations.  The quality was great and the dresses came in a little earlier than planned.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.  One of my maids wasn’t overly fond of sleeveless styles and this was one of the few places that had options with sleeves as well as separates.  Hope that helps!

I’m using Aria too. Glad to see bees have had positive experiences! I got my swatches pretty fast from them too. I’m not really near a store (ARIA, OPEN ONE IN NYC!) but I may try the sample dress via mail thing they do. That, or I’ll go down to D.C and see one of my maids who lives in Baltimore and have her come try one on.

My friend is using Aria for her bridesmaids’ dresses. I’m in the bridal party, and it’s been really easy to coordinate all of us across the country (stores in LA and Boston and the try-on service). When I tried the dresses on, they seemed of high quality and true-to-size. It’ll be a dress I (gasp) could wear again!

My best friend used them for her wedding!  The only tough part was coordinating with her bridesmaids to get them to Boston to try on the dresses (bride was based out of Boston).  They’re reasonable dresses, beautiful colors, and she let her bridesmaids each choose a dress as long as it was short.  Some of them chose to do different accent colors, double hem, or sashes, and the maid of honor wore a long dress.

(Sorry, not the best picture…)

I wore one as a bridesmaid last fall and was quite impressed with them. The other bridesmaids received their dresses, and days passed but mine still hadn’t arrived! I got panicky and gave them a call. They said it must have been lost in the mail, but they would deal with tracking it for me, and within a week, they had made and sent me a replacement dress so that I would still have time for alterations. They were friendly on the phone and eager to help. When the dress arrived, it was a nice quality silk and lined. I’d recommend them for both quality and service.

I’ve requested swatches. The other problem I have is 4 of 5 my BMs don’t have lots of $$: my 2 younger sisters & 2 college students. Aria dresses are on the pricier side so I’m looking for similar dresses but not at the Aria price.

We’re looking at Aria dresses, because actually I’ve found that they are less expensive than most. I’m glad to hear y’all have had good experiences with them.

I used Aria for my wedding dress and I’m thrilled with it. Especially the price.

We used Aria for 8 bridesmaids dresses (same color – slate – but each one a different style) and 2 Flower Girl dresses.  They were super to work with, absolutely no problems.  Dresses came a month before expected, looked beautiful, needed no pressing, etc. Would highly recommend them!
