I actually found Weddingbee.com while doing reasearch on dhgate for a dress. So I seen a bunch of reviews for Dressilyme and for Light in the box, good and bad. For Light in the box the bad reviews said the same thing, which is the dresses had a odor(but I figure if thats the case, no biggie because I already plan to take it to the cleaners).For Dressilyme the bad reviews say the dress looks like a high school kid made it. But the pics I see on here look so great. I found a general dress online and Dressily said they can make it but I’m worried it wont come out right so I figured I would stick with one they already offer. So now I figure I’m going to order from one of the 2 sites but I just cant decide which one, mostly because I cant decide on a dress. So I figure I would ask for help from my fellow B2Bs so here are my likes and under the pic will be the site that says they can make them. Im very indecisive so can everyone give there thoughts
#1. Dressilyme said they can make this for me, I really love it.
#2. Light in the box
#2. A real life customer posted the dress they recieved to a review(I think this pic shows the detail and made me fall in love with it)
#3. Dressilyme, Im digging it (and Fiance likes it the most)
#4. Light in the box
#4 real customers(I think it shows the detail better)
I think I’m iffy about this one, mostly because I cant really get a fill because she is sitting down

perhaps you should put up a poll. but i like #3 the most and from reviews I’ve read on here, i think dressilyme would make an awesome one!

I definitely love #3 the most!

yeah I think I will put a poll up, to get peoples oppions thanks for the idea
My fiancee said he likes # also. I really like #3 also, but I think I’m stu ck because our wedding will be outdoors at a botanical gardens and I imagine flies or peices of grass getting in the bottom of it. lol.
What do you bees think of me ordering online from the 2 I’ve mentioned, has anyone heard any insanly horrible reviews about either of these sites? I think Im going to go ahead and order something this weekend so if it doesnt turn out good, I’ll still have time to go a store front

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.

@AshaP: Thanks so much for that, Im thinking of going with them, mostly because they allow positive and negative reviews on their site. And I get a funny feeling that the pics I see of dresses from Dressilyme on sites like this are from paid spokespeople or just straight out employees, they either know way to much about customer service etc and have nothing but positive things to say, or the only post you see they have done is about the dress they got from Dressilyme. I want a honest customers opinnion, and when I looked Dressilyme up on google I found a bunch of bad reviews that I cant seem to find in other places. Which I seen bad reviews on Light in the box also, but like I said at least its seen on their own page also. So to be on the safe side I think I’ll go with Light in the box, and I seen alot of Bridesmaid or Best Man and Flower Girl dresses I liked. thanks again

@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.

@AshaP: Yes if you can send me your pics, it will be very helpful, Im thinking of getting the flower girl and mother’s dress from there to check out thier quality. So your pics will help alot

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.

@adw2c: I decided to go with dresilyme.com and I picked dress #3. I actually paid for it like 3 weeks ago, so I’m hoping the status will change to “shipped” soon, because everything is on hold till I receive the dress. I asked could they send me a picture of their progress so far, since its a new dress for them, I’m worried about how it will turn out. But I received a message from Karen saying, “We are afraid that this is a peak season,and we do not have enough time to take the pictures of this dress,sincerely hope you can understand this,thanks”. That really sucks, but I do understand its busy, so I guess time will tell. I’ll do a board about it, once I receive the dress, so people can get a ideal of their work with a more elaborate design.

@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!!
