KissHey I don’t have any pictures but I’m considering using them as well. Hopefully other bees can give us some tips and before n after pics. I’m trying on dresses this weekend to see what looks best on me so I have more of solid idea of what to order.

I think that there had been a couple other posts where people have showed pictures of their dresses, and they looked a lot like that. Try going to adw2c’s profile (http://boards.weddingbee.com/profile/adw2c) & looking at the posts she’s commented on.

I already posted on a similar board and mentioned that I’d contacted Dressily about an engagement dress and they said they could not do it. I went with ASAPbay/Landy instead… know it’s not what you asked for, but I’ll try and post on here when I hear more. Dressily are honest though. If they can’t make it, they will tell you… big plus point! Plus I hear lots of good things.

I ordered a dress from Dressilyme a few days ago. I should be getting it in March and will definitely post an update then. Hope it’s not too late for you!

@Aure:  Thanks Aure! I just saw this, sorry. I LOVE my DressilyMe dress!! I had a great experience working first with Paris on pre-sale questions then with Karen once I had ordered. They truly did just as I asked, every request, sent me pics and let me OK them before moving on in the process. I AM THRILLED with my dreamy replica that was so inexpensive I can’t even believe it! I ordered the evening of 11/30 and got my dress in the states on 12/21 I believe it was. AMAZING quality, perfect fit. I can’t tell you how happy I am.

My tips for ordering would be as follows:

BE POLITE!!! They are very, very nice and helpful. Don’t be demanding or bridezilla. They speak excellent English for the most part. Compliment them! If you like other dresses or pics of dresses or YOUR dress tell them! Tell them how much you appreciate their help.

Measure correctly or have someone do it for you. You have to understand exactly what each measurement is for so if you don’t understand one ask! It is not their fault if you don’t measure right and it doesn’t fit but you will be disappointed. Mine fits perfectly and I made sure I measured down to the last inch then measured again to check.

Don’t be impatient! This was hard for me! They are custom making your dress and it takes time. When you see the seams, the beading, the finishing you will be AMAZED at how little time it took!

Send as many photos as possible of what you want. I sent edited photos with captions and arrows especially when I asked for adjustments once they sent my first pics.

Make sure you are clear on the fabric they are using. Order a swatch if you have time or study the color charts carefully. It’s hard to judge that in a pic. I was very happy but if you have something very specific in mind don’t leave it to chance!

Make sure you have enough time. Right now they are off I believe on Chinese New Year so I am sure they will be busy when they return so it may take a few weeks to get caught up.

If you have any more questions feel free to PM me! I am so glad I went this route. Another Bee ordered my exact dress after seeing mine and hers turned out lovely and perfect as well. It made me happy knowing I helped a dress twin in the UK save money and look fabulous. Smile
