Has anyone made a purchase form this site?! They have a dress that I really want and it fits in my budget, but I was wondering if anyone has ever order from them and want your exprience was…..
And what do you think of this dress?!

I think that dress is beautiful!
I am however reeeally skeptical about this site. Namely because I found the Amsale dress I just purchased from a reputable (voted best in Denver) bridal salon listed on that site for not even 4% of its retail price and the website it’s "regular" retail price is 7% of what it really is. Who knows what you’re paying for, but at that rate, I’d say it’s a photo of the dress!
If you’re looking for good information about who to trust when buying your dress, check out Bridal Bargins by Denise & Alan Fields (Miss Hot Cocoa reviewed it recently). Also there are reputable sites where brides sell dresses (some never even worn!). Check out http://www.oncewed.com, http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com & http://www.woreitonce.com.

Ok, I’m back :-).
Here’s the skivvy on that website, from their FAQ section…
How are your prices so low?
This question is asked by most of our customers.There are 3 Keys:
- All the dresses at our website are not the original designed dresses but the copies.So the dress you will receive may be not 100% exact as the picture.The pictures are copyrighted by the company who have these brands.We collected these pictures from internet and just make them as samples to our customers who want to let us customize the dresses for them.The dresses will be designed and produced by the requirements of our customers themself.So the price is low.
- We are a Chinese wedding dress factory.So the price is low.
- We don’t have the retail stores in US or Europe.So the price is low.
Are you an authorized retailer of the designers on-site?
We are not an authorized retailer of all of the designers and collections featured on our website. The pictures are collected from internet and just make the samples for our customers.If you want to buy the original dresses please visit the brand official website.All the dresses in our website will be customized by the customers’ requirements.

I made a purchase 20 days ago from peridress.com.
I got my dress today, i wasn’t expecting it!!! the dress needs some alterations, is a little bit big, but I can’t complain about the dress, is beautiful, they pay attention to all the details, the fabric is very good, i can’t wait to see how is it going to look after the alterations, it was my fault, ’cause i send my measurements adding one inch afraid that they will make it small, anyway is better bigger than smaller.But i am happy with Peridress.I’ll post some pictures later .

I wanted to say we are have the same experience .very luckily ! I had a WONDERFUL experience with Peridress! I think that what must happen sometimes with their customers is that a lot of people who get the perfect dress don’t come back to the website to post the GOOD things. But, when people are unhappy – they are quick to post it. (as they should). But I told myself I would make it a point to post my results if they were good! I ordered my dress on Nov 8th. I ordered the Cymballine Antebes style dress. My aunt did all the specific measurements for me to include with my order. I just provided them what they asked for – nothing more. I checked with Skyle via the online chat on Nov 24th and she told me my dress had been shipped the day before. I rec’d the post office ship in my mail last day, and picked up my dress today. I opened it up and couldn’t believe how beautiful it was! All the details were beautiful and the material used appears to be high quality to me. With a few minor immaterial exceptions – it is just like the dress in the picture. Then I was able to try it on and it fit PERFECT. I am short and have somewhat of a stocky build – so I was doubtful that it would fit perfect. I was fully prepared to make a trip to the tailor’s for alterations. But I won’t be needing any!! Hope every one have a good luck!

I was ecommended by one of my friends who bought from peridress .
I bought my dress from this site! It’s amazing, really detailed, beautifully made! I was worried it would be too small as I gave them my exact measurments but it fits! (I still need someone to lace me into in properly so I can check the size out when it’s on correctly)
I also asked for a lace up back instead of a zip, which they have done. My advice to anyone ordering from here is to give them specific information or your own request advance.
I also got a response to every email so I couldn’t be happier with Peridress and I will be ordering bridesmaid dresses from here. I love the way it fits and the way it looks! I could not believe that ordering from china could be so great!

Please be careful when you order from this site. I have never ordered from there personally, but I know someone who did and it was HORRIBLE experience. The dress that she got was not even close to the picture of the dress that she sent them. I think that is one of those times that you get what you paid for. The dresses are that price for a reason, so I would suggest that you continue to shop.

should we be concerned that the "gals" above who gave "raves" about this site have only ever posted once on weddingbee? i too know a girl who got her dress from peridress and it was a horrible experience. it looked nothing like her picture and it was one of the simplest dresses i have ever seen (in an elegant way). she can’t even use it and possibly not even for trash the dress! beware about peridress.

I am looking for bridesmaid dresses (my sister is getting married in March next year, and bravely left this task to me) I found Peridress.com and wanted to do as much research as I could (fab prices, appreciate only copies hence low price, but seeing as it’s not my money I’m spending I’m being even more careful) so I’ve checked out a lot of these wedding chat sites to see what others have said about them and I think WMforever has hit the nail on the head! Check out this link and see what has been posted here http://www.weddingbycolor.com/edlivera/milestones/31339 – anything look familiar to one of the positively WONDERFUL posts on this board?? Strange they’re from China too……… think I’ll give Peridress a miss this time!

Stay away from Peridress!!!
I ordered a Maternity dress from them and when placing the order sent them a message reminding them that the dress was for a pregnant woman but they sent me a regular dress for a non pregnant woman. Also it was the wrong colour and the fabric was damaged (and highly visible). After a lot of trouble, I managed to get hold of them on the phone and they refuse to give me a refund! they say that if they do they’ll make a loss! So I’m the one making the loss now because I have to buy another dress!! Stay away from these cowboys or you will regret it!

I ordered from Peridress hoping that this could be a good alternative to buying dresses for my bridesmaids. I was disappointed to find that the quality of the dress to be below my expectations. I went into this assuming that the dress was not going to be exactly like the original, but I still found the quality of the seams and construction of the dress to be less than ideal.
Another problems was the size. I gave them my measurements, but the dress they sent me was at least 2 sizes too big for me. I’m not sure how this happens when they sew a dress to your measurements… So if you are stubborn and still want to give it a try, order a couple of sizes smaller than you normally would.
I found that calling them was fine – they answered the phone and my questions just fine. They were friendly, and gave me suggestions on colors and styles. The dress arrived when they said it would. I did not pay for express delivery, but everything still arrive on time and did not get stuck in customs.
If I were still looking for less expensive alternative to dresses, I think that Craigslist my be a better way to go – because you can see the item for yourself and try it on before committing to buying it. I do not recommend Peridress. Sorry !!

I am so glad that I read this! I am debating ordering from a different website, but am glad to hear real people’s opinions! Doesn’t sound like it’s a good idea to order from them!

I’m glad I read this, too. I’m debating ordering my dress from China. I have 7 months, so there would still be time if it’s a bad experience. I think I will steer clear of this company, though.

- Wedding: June 2010 - Ceremony - First United Methodist Church; Reception - My parents' house!
Based on all these posts of experiences with the dresses, I wouldn’t order from them. 🙁 It seems kind of sketchy.
