I’m helping my sister shop for a dress, and I found a beautiful one on inweddingdress.com.  Then, a few days later, we were checking out J. Crew and saw the exact same dress; same model, same photo, everything.  After perusing some more sites, I found quite a few photos that inweddingdress.com is using from other sites, so I started trying to research the site.  Is it a scam??

I would not recommend inweddingdress.com! I ordered a bridesmaid dress and flower girl dress in same white color from their standard swatch and it was delivered in different shade of white. They said it was due to it being different fabric so they couldn’t match it up exactly, even though their swatches were exactly the same for both dresses. So that meant $150 down the drain! Really terrible customer service as well. So beware when ordering from them. Don’t assume you’ll get the same color if you are ordering different styles of dresses!!

I ordered 4 dresses for my bridesmaids from INWeddingDress.com in November of 2010 for $90 each. I received the dresses within a month. However these dresses were shipped from CHINA with a receipt written in Chinese. I ordered custom measured dresses after paying $50 for shipping. The dresses came all crammed into a small package and wrinkled horribly. The tailoring on them is HORRIBLE. There is bunching in the waist and hips due to terrible tapering. I contacted this company today (1 day after the “3” day return contact policy) in hopes of receiving SOME compensation for this because I now have to get them fixed by someone here in America. I was told I was too late and that they would not allow returns of custom measured items anyway. By the way, UPS delivered the package at about 5pm that day so technically I still am within the 72 hour time limit… I think they bank on the probability that you wont get together with your bridesmaids within the next two days. These people are SHADY. 

 

I agree with the original poster that I we should have realized that there was no phone number and that there was a THREE DAY RETURN POLICY in which you must pay for the $50 or more shipping cost back to China. However, I hope these posts prevent a few people from the headache.

 

DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS WEBSITE. THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS HORRRRRRRRIBLE.

@kellyfoote:

Thanks for telling us and letting us know the good choices from the bad choices. It doesn’t sound like inweddingdress.com does good business.

I really hate to play the devil’s advocate…but I will for just a moment.  I dont’ work for inweddingdress.com, however I have recently ordered from them, and I’m just crossing my fingers that the dress I ordered will turn out to be “workable”.  I don’t expect it in ANY way to be perfect, nor to I expect superior quality out of the fabric.  Polyester satin is polyester satin people!

I think if you have a definite idea for your wedding and things have to be an absolute certian way, then yes, you should probably avoid ordering from a Chinese knock off company.  I am a desigerer and I work for a very large firm in Canada.  I’ve seen shoddy workmanship and I’ve seen excellent workmanship, and quite frankly a Chinese worker in a factory there can probably put a dress together better than I (and I’m pretty good). 

There are 500 shades of white.  Getting one that you think might match the whites you have alredy chosen via on line…risky chance.  Same way there are 500 shades of black.  I’ve ordered an ivory dress.  I don’t need to match anyone and my bridesmaids dresses were mixmatched based on their personalites as well. We chose colours that “go together” rather than colours that matched.  You have to keep in mind when trying to match colours, there will always be different dye lots and if you NEED to match, then do it in your home town where you  can actually go and see the fabric in person and make the decision.

I in NO WAY expect my knock off dress to come in silk and be the best thing I’ve ever seen in fabric (trust me…I’ve seen some pretty high end stuff…I don’t expect that in the least).  What I am hoping for is that they nail the proportion and the fit. If they can do that…I’m happy.  I’ll have got a dress for $300.00 and I can trash it in the ocean in some edgy destnation wedding beach photos afterwards. 

If your dress is more special to you than what I plan to do with mine…then just take the time, and you may have to spend a little more $$ getting something “perfect”.

Just my two cents.

@mmcmahon:

Well said. It will be nice to see your review when your dress arrives. I haven’t seen any pics of dresses from this company yet.

I think its a good idea to start calling some of these dresses inspirations instead of replicas.

I mean its a nice idea to recreate every detail for some brides but many of us just want the feel of the dress we love and not a 100% copy of the designer gown.

I do think that some of the companies out there are doing pretty good representations! I think they look $95% close ^_^

Its for each bride to decide inspiration or replica and also to choose the best company.

Haha, yeah when I got to the second paragraph I was like “oh, yup, there it is. vendor!” That wording doesn’t even make any sense. And again with the making an account and posting 1 post. “Sweety” is a real creative username too. *rolls eyes*

I have been in a dispute with inweddingdress.com for a few days now. They were supposed to add crystals to my dress and only did half of them! “Jenny Foley” sent apology emails and subpar solutions and I will not accept that. They stopped replying to me until I threatened to have Visa reverse the card charges. The said they’ll send the crystals to me, so I can apply them myself; take $40 store credit for a future purchase or $20 cash. I paid $50 extra for those crystals and they have been extremely unprofessional. They said they would fix the dress “for free” (HA!), but I would have to pay for shipping back & forth from the US to China, although they screwed up!  PLEASE AVOID INWEDDINGDRESS.COM AT ALL COSTS!!!

I feel that this site, InWeddingDress.com, is probably a site I visited last year, which keeps changing its name when people are onto its scam. There was an uncannily similar site called WeddingDressMVP.com, formerly Ailsa’s Bridal, that showcased beautiful dresses at crazy-cheap prices, some of which I recognized as Maggie Sottero dresses. I am a huge Maggie fan, and I can spot her designs a mile away. This Chinese site InWeddingDress (just like WeddingDressMVP) has photos of Maggie’s dresses, but this time around, they’ve been clever enough to actually photoshop new heads onto Maggie’s distinctive models. At the link below is a photo from this knockoff site, and if you do some digging, you’ll realize it is a photo of the “Melissa Brooch” dress from the Maggie Sottero site a couple of years back. A new face has been photoshopped onto the model.

Someone really hates inweddingdress.com.

Personally, it sounds like someone is trying to slander the company. Too many bashing posts by people with no other posts.

Think about it.

I read through a lot of reviews of all these different Chinese online pages and i was very suspicious when I finally ordered from Inweddingdress. I chose this place because it generally had less bad reviews than other places. I ordered a custom made dress – actually they didnt even have the dress in their online store, but i sent them some good photos of the desired dress together with my measurements, and they sent me a quote. I then decided to give it a go – it was cheap and I didnt really have anything to loose. I received my dress with delivery today (a few days before expected delivery) and I am honestly very very impressed. Of course its not made of pure silk and the best quality materials, but it is not to be expected for that favorable price. For the price I paid I am so impressed with the likeness of the original dress and the quality of the product! I did not have any bad experiences with my first order from this company and I would certainly dare ordering something from them another time! One month ago i did not expect myself to sit here and write a positive review but luckily i am!
