@jymdrw:  I bought my dress there!!!  My bridesmaid’s dresses are from there as well. We are also using them for tuxes.

 

They have a great range of prices.  I’ve seen them ranging from $500-$2000.  Mine was $869 and my veil was $225.  My bridesmaid’s dresses were $190 for long dresses.

 

I believe you need to put 1/2 down when you order.  Then the rest is due when you pick the dress up.  It was the same for my bridesmaids.  I paid my dress in full but I’m pretty sure that it’s 1/2.

 

Do you have any other questions?  I’m totally happy to help any way I can!!

@jymdrw:  Overall, I have had a good experience!  As far as measurements, they warned me when I ordered my dress that my waist is one size but that it would mean the top would be too big.  My dress came in a couple of weeks ago, They were right, the top did come in huge on me.  But the waist fits perfectly.

 

The one thing that people might not realize is that for bridal, the sizes run soooo small.  I had to order a dress in a size that I would NEVER buy one in.  It’s 2 sizes bigger than what I generally wear.  One of my bridesmaids normally wears an 8 and had to get her dress in a much bigger size because of the fit of the dress and her bust measurements.  Their sizes are funny…  Just ask them to show you the chart so you can make sure you are having the right size ordered.

It’s worth just going there to check it out.  Walk around and see what you think.  I did that long before I went to try dresses on and I was glad that I did.  It is HUGE.

I ordered mine on 6/1/12 and they told me they estimated it to come in on 10/5/12.  THey called me two weeks ago saying it was in.  The same thing happened for my bridesmaids!

You really can find one for a reasonable price there!!  I was admiring a dress last week and it was a little over $500.  

 

The part I find expensive there is their accessories.  They had a headband I loved….  For $400!!!!!!!!  I almost had a heart attack.  I went down the street to Nordstrom and found the same thing for $100.  That’s my only advice.  And it doesn’t even apply to everything, just some accessories.  If you have any other questions, let me know!!

 

We also are doing our tuxes there and so far, that’s been pretty easy too.  Same with my bridesmaid’s dresses.
