I am currently ordering a dress off of ybridal, and yes the only reason they are so cheap is labor and fabric over seas is ALOT less expensive. also they do not have such a flux in prices for more popular items as we do here.
i am ordering the dress in the first link in the color of the dress in the second link, for this years usmc ball.
i should recieve it later on this month so i will keep you updated. i hope it turns out well as this is a trail for my wedding gown.
also i have contacted them numerous amounts of times w/ questions and comments, and they always seem to answer within 11 hours(probably cause of the time difference). the one who answers my uestions is signed emily, she has been very helpful, even if i am rude or impaitient at times. the other person who sent me my confirmation email thogh has not gotten back to me.
also as too the pictures not matching the actual dress, well on one hand- they cant match exactly, but if you go for a “knockoff” dress, as they say the designer took that gown then put their own spin on it(which it says in description) it will not look the same. and they do sometimes have pics of the dresses that they make.
on the plus side, i really like the custome measurements. they ask for more measurements than any of the other ‘same type’ site(ie over seas makers), w/ fraction of the cost.
so as far i would reccomend this site as they have been very helpful, even sending me color/fabric swatch pictures, as i did not have time to send away for theres- which s only 19.99, answered all of my uestions and are very reassuring. i will post a pic of the dress when i recieve it. cross your fingers for me, the ball is a very important event to me and my hubby, want to look my absolute best 😉
