- Wedding: October 2010
I was looking for Bridesmaid dresses and came up on some cute pictures on VPOnSale’s website. The prices were reasonable and being a bride on a budget, it seemed the perfect fit.
I ordered 4 dresses. Three in February and one in March due to a last minute add.
I received three dresses in a small plastic DHL bag. I would never think of stuffing the dresses in a plastic bag for delivery.. but that’s the way they came. When I started inspecting the dresses, they were horrible.
One had white thread used on a purple dress, they used white velcro to secure the halter, the craftsmanship of the dress was horrible, I received the wrong color dress, one had an built-in bra and the other two didn’t. My Maid of Honor tried on her dress and it didn’t fit properly. VP OnSale asks for 5 to 6 measurements on the body and I gave the all they asked for. The dress was still a disaster.
I emailed the company regarding the dresses and sent them pictures of all the issues I had with the dresses. All they could say is that they were sorry, they’d try again and they’d consider giving me $20.00 for the thread mess up.
I’m sure not all on line purchases are this bad, but for my first experience with bridesmaids dresses online, I’d stay local and choose dresses you can look at, touch, feel, and try on with your girls. DO NOT USE VPOnSALE!! This was an expensive lesson learned.
