Following is a review of my wedding dress and experience with mybigfatbeautifulwedding.com…
Most importantly, I am completing this review because several months ago, I was debating whether or not I wanted to risk “online wedding dress shopping” and I decided this route solely from reviews I’ve read online prior. With this company in particular, I was attracted to the proximity the main store was to home and the price! I’ve noticed a fair amount of negative reviews re: this business lately, and I just want to input my fair review.. So here it is…
I had a re-creation of the Michael Angelo Walt Disney’s Snow White wedding dress custom made from this website for my special day :). If anyone knows this line, the dress runs around $1400 in stores
Right from the start, Janet has been so pleasant and professional to work with. For instance, emails were answered usually within 1 business day and she accurately acknowledged any questions. She was very attentive to detail – ie I messed up one of my measurements, and Janet quickly caught it and instructed me how to properly make the measurement… only an experienced professional could understand these measurement numbers like that! After my dress had been made, Janet sent me pictures so that I could confirm my satisfaction before mailing. However, I had a few alteration requests (ie to make the flowers on the bodice smaller, and more plentiful), which would obviously entail a fair amount of work. Janet gladly turned back the dress to the manufacturer for alterations and was adimant that I was 100% satisfied with the dress before mailing.
Postage to Canada was 1 week. Upon arrival of the dress, I was absolutely amazed at the quality of the dress. Materials were very comparable to those in the real dress. Reading other reviews, I understand some customers have been unsatisfied with stitching and zippers… But the quality of my dress was flawless! I could tell they really took the time to tend to the smallest details on the bodice. Dress fits perfect to size! Now overall, the dress isn’t an exact match to the original dress, but I really love the uniqueness of it. So, don’t bother if you are looking for an EXACT remake of your dream designer dress.
My only suggestion is order early!! The whole process took approximately 6 months from order to doorstep. All in all, if you’re looking for a good-quality, custom, cost-effective alternative to your designer wedding dress, this is the place to shop!!
