Anyone have a review of La Sposa wedding dresses? Good? Bad?
I’m 99% sure I’m buying a La Sposa dress for my wedding, but have not been able to find any reviews about them (quality, fit, time waited for arrival, etc..)

I have a La Sposa dress (Melodia) and would say they are pretty good. Overall, I am VERY happy with my dress, especially for the price–it was cheaper than a similar David’s gown, and MUCH better all around. Sizing was very close to street size (I wear a 10-12 normally and my dress is a 12 and a near perfect fit). The ability to order a custom hollow-to-hem is great (mine was $100), and the quality was very good, beautiful lace, good construction (though I won’t go so far as to say stellar). They also have matching jackets for most of their dresses, which was a must for me. Shipping time was good–mine came in under 3 months, when the estimate was over 4. My only disappointments were the inability to customize anything other than the hem (I would have preferred a longer train), and the look of the back zipper–mine is a standard (not invisible) zipper, and it sticks out a little; I am not really happy with that part, but I’m going to have it covered with fake buttons. However, some of their dresses already have button backs, so if the visible zipper bugs you, just look at those. Bottom line, they aren’t the quality of a top/high-end designer, but really great for the price-point they ARE in. Go for it!

I wore a La Sposa "Menta" dress (lace and crystals) and I do love it. After I purchased it, I had second thoughts along the lines of "is it THE dress?" It may not be THE dress, but I love it just the same. I agree with blushingaudrey that it’s a great price point. My dress had more embellishments than other dress with similar bling. I added a ribbon just under the bust line just to change it up.
Good luck! If you want to see pics, let me know 🙂

And I forgot to answer your other questions…
I live in NYC and ordered it at a salon here. I ordered in Sept and it came in Dec. I was told it would take 6mos but I think the store tells everyone that. I didn’t have to do much hemming and the quality was great..

I just wore my La Sposa (Malva) this past weekend!
It was gorgeous, I love it. It took about 6months to order as mine is fully beaded and the beading is done OVER the dress as opposed to applique fabric. it was breathtaking. I was torn between 3 La Sposa dresses and ended up going with the sexy one. I’m so glad I did.

i got the la sposa ‘megara’ dress, which i wore to my wedding 2 months ago. i really wanted a lace dress that didn’t look cheaply made and whose pattern wasn’t too overwhelming. i loved my dress. i thought the lacework was well done, it was beaded all over, and had a gorgeous train. i think la sposa and pronovias do a great job with their dresses. they have a soft, romantic style to them. they are classic dresses, and while you may think lace might seem old-fashioned, la sposa updates their dresses with a modern flair that i think is excellent for a mid-range price point. i received so many compliments on my wedding day that it was really flattering! they do a hollow-to-hem for a reasonable price, which is convenient, and i thought it fit well. i think it is up to the bridal salon you go to to make sure that the fit is appropriate for your size, and i don’t quite remember exactly how long it took to arrive, but it was a couple of months, although i was informed by the lady at the salon ahead of time. the only thing i had issues about was the color. i wasn’t able to see swatches of the colors prior to ordering the dress, so i ordered ivory, and it turned out to be a little more ivory than i thought it would be (i.e., a slightly yellowish ivory), but each manufacturer is different in their coloring, so it might behoove you to see if you can look at color swatches prior to ordering. however, it turned out that on my wedding day the color was perfect and matched my asian skin very well, and the ivory ended up being more white in photos, without being toothpaste white.

Thanks everyone! I agree that the price point of these gowns seems fair. I already knew that Pronovias made beautiful gowns, so I didn’t think I would get bad reviews…. Just needed a little confirmation 🙂
Tammy: Menta from the Dentelle collection is my other top choice! 🙂 It’s such a beautiful dress. Although I’m leaning toward the Muriel dress from the silk line (the strapless version, not with the off the shoulder wrap.)

@ynichole: what is the price range of La Sposa gowns?
Post # 10
@bump: My La Sposa Fanal Retailed for 1200 in 2010. Not sure if they still cost the same or whether most of their dresses are more or less. And it depends on what country you’re in too. I’m in the US.
ETA: The knot says 600-3000, but I’m pretty sure there are very few dresses at the low end of that range. And I bought my dress used for 500 (hence the original price being in 2010) and I know most used ones are in the 500-900 range.
