    I can’t say much about lightinthebox as far as wedding dresses, but I can speak to the quality of their bridesmaids dress-my friend got married and we all ordered our dresses from there. Got it in a month, great quality. The dress was a little small, so my mom’s seamtress friend had to let it out some- she kept saying it was great quality, and she said they left enough material on the inside (I think she said a 2 inch seam allowance). The wedding dresses seem to be hit or miss-I’ve seen some pictures of the dresses that look awesome, and some that look…um. So if you go with lightinthebox, I’d pick from the dresses that have pictures in the review section. Word of caution- another bridesmaid had to return her dress because it was way too small, and returning it wasn’t a problem, but that was because she didn’t get it custom measured. The other bridesmaid that DID get custom measured wasn’t able to return hers.

    @futuremrsbrandieb:  No Problem- if it would help, I could always send you pictures of the bridesmaids dress we got from there, if you want a closer picture of the material of quality. That goes for anybody else as well.

    Only thing I against ordering online is that pictures always make the dress look amazing, but when you have it in person and try it on sometimes its nothing like what you expected.

    Maybe try to find pictures of real brides in the dresses than the models

    I think either is good. Whichever had the best communication and quality information.

    As for the reviews. I think that its good when you can get reviews for a specific dress on light in the box. I haven’t ordered from there though.

    Dressilyme did my dresses and all was good.

    @futuremrsbrandieb:  That really sucks doesnt it, that they won’t send pics of the finished dress. I am in the same situation as you are. I’m having them make a dress of a  style I haven’t seen from them yet. I’m just hoping for the best! Please do post a review of the dress when you receive it. I almost ordered the same dress you did, its gorgeous!!

    Good luck!!
