- Wedding: June 2011
I highly recommend this site. I first started using it just for ideas visually as they have thousands of pictures and I had no idea what style I wanted. After I went to my local bridal store to try on different gowns I found only one that I was happy with but it was £7,999! This horrified me so I went around and tried on probably 50+ dresses that fell within my budget but nothing. Then I thought that I would be happy to order a dress from thecustomdresses.com for a few reasons;
for the price it would be worth it even if i wasnt happy as i could sell it on
you only wear wedding dress for one day so if the quality was not 100% wearing for only a day doesnt really matter
So after selecting a style the Sottero&Midgley ASM3025OCS I placed an order on 10th March and recieved my dress on 6th April. I gave full measurements in my order and reuested matched crinoline hoop. Including this and shipping my order was £180! The dress was/is totally out of this world and I could not have been happier. The site make a fibrelass model to your measurements to tailor the dress around to ensure a perfect fit, even though they only say they can guarantee 70% true likeness to designer dress mine came out even better than the original which sells for £1000+.
Seriously consider this site they are amazing, communication is excellent they respond to emails promptly to say they are in china and even tho their english is bad they are only too happy to help keep you updated on progress of dress or any worries you may have.
I would be happy to send more detailed photos of my dress should anyone wish to see detailling like the straps I had and the beading embroiderry to my bust or the ruched detail to my skirt and train. The only trouble that I had was that by time of our wedding I had fallen pregnant so the corset back could not close properly lol but obviously this is NOT fault of dress!!
