Early on, I had considered purchasing from them. I did some research on them though. If you google them for reviews, you might be surprised at what you find. I can’t believe they are still in business with the reviews that I saw. It is sad that, even with the internet, brides and other customes don’t do their research prior to making a purchase.

A few of the New Zealand brides on weddings.co.nz have had success buying from Light In the Box so I don’t think they’re all bad.  I’ve also heard the Bridesmaid or Best Man frocks are a pretty good deal and reasoably well made.

I’m a New Zealand bride and I have ordered both of my bridesmaid dresses from Light in the box and they are great.  I had some issues with one of them being too short so I sent it back for a full refund and ordered another one a little longer. I can’t complain!?

I bought my reception dress from Light In The Box. Luckily, everything turned out great, but I understand your apprehension.  I was pretty worried till I got the dress!

If you do go that route, I would recommend doing the custom sizing, and also a dress that has a lot of reviews, which was what I chose.

Nzbride, any chance you could post some photos? I’m looking into this but I’m still concerned it’s mostly not legit.

If anyone wants a recommendation for an online China based company that IS legit, feel free to PM me – I did a lot of research before buying my dress by that route (and I’m obviously not just here to spam you, haha – lots of posts!) and am extremely happy with the product I got.

all the dresses come from china anyway, so really, what’s the difference?

i was absolutely going to go the china route (although maybe in person since i have to go there semi-often) if i didn’t find something at home, but i found a dress on super sale here so it’s moot.  well, bridesmaids dresses…..

I did recently purchase from lightinthebox and I’m a little mixed about the results.  First of all, I felt the quality/design of the dress was well represented.  Very pleased with that…However, I was TOTALLY not pleased with the color.  I ordered a emerald green dress w/ matching satin ribbon at the waist.  The dress that was sent was a horrid hunter green with a satin that does match at all.  It is literally the ugliest thing I have ever seen in my life….and beings I didn’t return it within 7 days (my sister, the bride wanted to see it in person first) I can’t return it at all now. 🙁
