- Wedding: September 2012
I also ordered a dress through Landy Bridal and and was searching for real looking images/photos of their work everywhere – this forum really helped so I thought I would share my experience with them. I placed the order at the end of January 2012 and was told it would take around 25 days to make. It didn’t. It was end of Feb 2012 when I emailed them asking where we stand with the dress and I was told to wait till middle of March – so I did and contacted them again then. Cut the long story short, I received my dress today 03/05/2012. After waiting for 4 months they finally send me the images of the dress for my approval before shipping via DHL and I could not believe my eyes – the dress was completely different from what I wanted, looked very cheap and I almost had tears in my eyes – I hated it. I really did. They did not listen to anything I said – probably didnt even look at the image of the dress I asked them to replicate. I was getting very reassuring emails throughout the dress-making period of how they are working on it, chosing the lace, the beading, final touches bla-blah and how gorgeous its going to look each time I was getting frustrated with the length of the process, it was all one big lie. The dress I asked them to replicate looked NOTHING like what I wanted. I knew I cant expect it to look 100% the same, but was hoping for something at least similar looking to the image I sent. I made a massive fuss and they suggested to send a free petticoat to keep me happy – I thought they must be kidding – I was not happy. We agreed that they will send me one of their “quick delivery dresses”, which i could chose instead – at least this time I knew what I was getting myself into as they provided real photos of the wedding dresses I could pick from. I ended up chosing one – It’s not the dress I was dreaming of, but at the end of the day, its way better than what they were trying to replicate based on the original image I provided, and taking into consideration the not so great amount of money I paid – I think I got good value for money in the end. Would they not agree to send me a different dress, I think I would write the worst review ever.. but now I’m kinda happy 😉 Fussy bride! Below are the images of the parcel I received + some quick ones of the dress they sent me in the end. I would normally put it on for you guys but since im 38 weeks pregnant, it will take a while till I fit into it 🙂 Maybe later.
