If it’s not an outright scam, they are most likely using sub-par materials and the craftmanship on the dress is poor.

Have you ever heard of the phrase, “If it’s too good to be true, then it is”?

I have another phrase! “You get what you pay for.”

Craftsmanship, fabric, repair, guarantees – if it turns out to be a scam, then you’ve just given someone 500 bucks.

@eileenguiry: I’m guessing they’re a scam cuz I checked online for reviews and the only ones I found are of a woman named Brittany Anderson telling different stories. All seem to be around the same date when they were posted. A bunch says her friend got a dress and others say she got a dress. I wouldn’t trust it.

Try ebay instead. There are a bunch of dress makers on there that will do your dress for cheap.

I’m copy-pasting from what I wrote in your other post, in case you don’t see it:

Des74 keeps referencing the address and phone number on their webpage as “proof” they they’re legit, but the address given on their webpage is fake.  There is no such city as Cotton Valley, New York (at least according to Google or Google maps).  The zip code goes to Valley Cottage, New York.  The phone number goes to an unpublished landline in New York, New York.

It’s completely possible that the phone number goes to a representative for the company, and also completely possible that they will make and send dress replicas.  But given that they are lying about the address, I wouldn’t trust them with anything.

The only company like that I found that was even close to good was peridress. Some of the girls over at Offbeat Bride Tribe have used them and really liked the dresses.

@Des74 I never said you were lying; I think it’s perfectly possible that you got a nice dress from them.  But the facts are that the company is lying about where they are.

I was scammed. I was supposed to get a replica of a Martin McCrea dress and the one I got was so hideous that I refused to wear it (I got it at a different place tho). Bottom line, I wasted several hundred dollars and had to get another dress.

Members: I would be wary of any company which relies on fake reviews.  If their product is really that great, there will be many positive reviewers across the net!

Just as an update to my earlier post, Dynamic Brides updated their website to change their city address from Cotton Valley to Valley Cottage.  It’s very possible that their webmaster did make a legitimate mistake, but just to be clear, the address listed now (616 Corporate Way, Suite 2, Valley Cottage) is a “virtual address” and not a physical one.  It can be legally purchased by anyone, domestically or internationally, to act as a mailing address (kind of like a P.O. box except it looks like a street address).  So the location of the actual company base/site of production is unclear.

I also found many more illegitimate reviews of the company by searching “dynamicbrides” — almost identical “reviews” being posted under different names all over the web.  This is a good enough reason not the trust the company…
