- Wedding: July 2014
first of all, this board is fantastic. I’ve discovered it just like a week ago and am already addicted 🙂
I even found the dress of my dreams, for which I only had a picture but didn’t know the designer or anything about it (Allure 8965). However, when trying on dresses, I realized that even though I didn’t intend to go strapless, that suits me much better.
I’ve tried on the San Patrick America dress at a bridal shop and really liked it. But it’s 2,300€. Definitely not planning on spending that much!
After browsing this board, I’ve decided to give dressilyme a try. My wedding is in July, so even if it doesn’t turn out nicely, I’ll at least still have time to look elsewhere.
So I’ve ordered a dress that is as close to the San Patrick America as possible to have the best comparison. I got this one:
It cost 240€ plus shipping. The reverse google search (thanks for that advice!!!) offered me something from Aire Barcelona, though, so I’m excited to see what it really looks like in the end.
If their quality is good, I’d probably by another dress their as I don’t think the above dress will fit nicely. I have very large breasts, so I should probably go for customized fit. Which I didn’t want to do with this order as I’ve had a baby 4 months ago and am planning to shed quite a bit further down the road. So hopefully it won’t be too difficult to sell the dress. (Or maybe keep it and see whether there’s any chance to fit into it with alterations.)
The order went pretty smooth so far. I had decided for DHL, however, was then contacted with further info they needed for my FedEx order, which I apparently did (sure that I took DHL). So I had to pay a bit more to go with UPS to avoid applying for some tax duty number. But not anything worth mentioning. The customer rep is nice so far. Unfortunately, they won’t be able to send me any pictures which I’m a bit worried about.
Especially if I go ahead with another dress there, I’d want to get a dress made up of several ones that I liked. So I’d definitely be worried if I couldn’t see that mid-way. I’ve asked when their low season is, as they cannot provide pictures due to the current high season.
Any experience from you guys when a good time for getting pictures is?
And has anyone ordered from DressilyMe without receiving pictures along the way? Did it still turn out nicely?
