Hey if there is anyone out there who like me, hails from Canada and is looking at Perfect Bridal (http://www.perfectbridal.com) for ordering bridesmaids dresses…. the dresses look really cheap on the website because they are in USD and they say shipping is free… but only for U.S. customers. I totally understand charging for shipping internationally, but I can’t stomach paying $150 for shipping and then paying another $150 for some guy at the border to open the box and decide how much tax to charge.
Our dresses retailed in store in Canada for $180 + HST and on the PB website they were $135 USD… but then it gets converted to CAD, they charge for shipping, and they charge for duty. In the end it cost $300 for shipping and duty together, we actually spent a few dollars more per dress than if I’d bought in store. They don’t tell you how much duty is until it gets to the border, so there is no way of knowing how much they will charge. So proceed with caution! You might get lucky and they might not charge duty, but I got burned 🙁
Other than that the customer service was awesome and I would totally recommend PB to a U.S. or Canadian bride who can ship to a U.S. address!
