Hi everyone! I’ve always loved this website and I finally got engaged so I decided to join you and become a bee!!! I’m soooo excited ^-^
My fiance and I are getting married in one year but, of course, we girls are obsessed with wedding dresses so I started looking online for dresses a very long time ago. (I had a lot of time to do that because my fiance and I dated for 7 and a half years!). I know a lot of brides here love dressilyme but I am not sure about getting my dress there because they do not accept paypal anymore =(
Anyway, I found this website http://www.dresswe.com They have amazing dresses and they offer free shipping, too! Has anyone heard about them? Or has anyone bought anything from them? I’m sure they are selling dresses manufactured in China but would they be worth giving it a try?
Thanks so much in advance!!! Greetings from sunny Guatemala

@viloy101: I have not had any personal experiance with that website, however I did do a google search for reviews. Most of the reviews seem positive… although I did run into scamadviser.com that suggest the website may not be safe to use..
The most alarming part for me was the fact that the website is less than a year old.
When comparing that website to dressilyme, there seems to be a much lower risk with dressilyme.com
If you find a dress that you like very much, I would consider trying to find it on ebay so you can pay with paypal, both ebay & paypal have some pretty strict rules when you don’t receive a quality item or the item you purchased.. and given that dresswe.com is a chinese shop, the chance of finding those dresses elsewhere are extremely likely.

@jenilynevette: Thank you very much! Wow, it’s less than a year old? that’s scary… it doesn´t sound good at all!
I tried searching on ebay and I found a lot of beautiful dresses there, too! But most of them are from China as well. In fact I fell in love with one that was $25 but it sounds way too good to be true so it’s probably a scam, right? Have you heard about any trustworthy wedding dresses sellers on ebay? My fiance and I are paying for the wedding and we are also giving a downpayment for a house so our budget is very tight… Any help would be greatly appreciated =)

@viloy101: I’ve purchase many, many items off ebay, but I have not purchased a dress. The best thing about ebay/paypal is that if you don’t recieve the item in a timely manner, or its damaged, or just not anything like the pictures, you can open a ticket and most of the time get your money back.
One of my first wedding purchases were some artifical flowers, I had purchaed all of my bouquets, corsages, ect on ebay for around $125. When they arrived they were HORRIBLE. The flowers were dirty/scuffed up even though they were all wrapped indivually, and the boxes they arrive in was fine. They also looked nothing like the pictures. They were actually quite horrid. I opened a paypal claim, included pictures and reasons on why I felt i didn’t get what I paid for, and was refunded the full amount, and got to keep the flowers [not that I wanted them.. but I surely didn’t want to pay for return shipping].
You just need to do a little research on your sellers.. I wouldn’t purchase a wedding dress from anyone on ebay that had less than 200 reviews, honestly. And a few bad reviews are OKAY depending on what they say. Just need to use your judgement.

not sure if you have orderd already but I have orderd 11 different dresses (over 12 months) from http://www.lightinthebox.com and never had a problem, my sister has ordered from jjshouse.com and her evening gown is just devine. And I am currently waiting on my wedding gown from dressilyme.com I think dressilyme might be my favourite, because they allow you to change details on your dress where as lightinthebox.com doesnt. What you see is what you get. Now thats not a bad thing as every dress ive gotten has been spot on. But you know how you see a dress and you think “that would be perfect if only they changed the…?” Anyway I havent received my dressilyme.com dress yet but im very excited. And i have read bazillions of reviews on them 99% of them positive (cant please everyone I guess haha) anyways hope you managed to find a good dress 🙂
