After having a seamstress destroy my dress just 3 months before my wedding, I tried local bridal shops who couldn't guarantee the arrival of a replacement, even with rush shipping. With dwindling options, I found a dress on NearlyNewlywed.com and knowing I had such a limited amount of time, I ordered immediately. I felt confident ordering from NearlyNewlywed because they have a 2-3 week shipping time frame, free returns, and sellers must ship the dress to them for authentication before the dress is sent to the buyer. After waiting for 3 weeks with no communication or tracking information, I emailed asking for an update since buyers can not communicate directly with sellers at any time. At this time I found out the dress had never been shipped by the seller and in the websites response, I received "I am sorry she did not answer...Usually they do not put us in this situation". This website shifted all blame to the seller, failed notify me that the dress did not ship, and delivery was going to be delayed. Now, with 60 days until my wedding I'm left scrambling. Had this dress arrived on time, I would have had time for alterations. Due to the lack of communication and professionalism, I do not recommend NearlyNewlywed.
This company is not reliable.
I wanted to sell my wedding dress. I paid the fee and they sent me an email the next day saying my dress was live. That was back in september. It is mid October and I noticed when I search as a buyer my dress is not even listed. I could only find it by using the link they emailed me which is useless since I need buyers to see it. I explained this to them but they were not helpful till I requested a refund. Then they said they would have it fixed but at this point I do not trust them at all. They are refusing to return my payment even though they did not provide me with the service they were supposed to. Not to mention any time I checked my seller profile there was always glitches with the site.
The measurements of a dress I purchased were incorrect, yet the customer service person Patti told me they still wouldn't offer me any sort of courtesy refund. Further, the site is super misleading - to buy and return a dress costs $75. I read the terms and conditions a few times before buying and still did not catch this detail because they are super unclear about this. DO NOT USE THIS SITE. TERRIBLE AND FRUSTRATING EXPERIENCE!!!!!
My experience was initially pretty good. But I ran into issues with an accidental cancellation of my order, having to place the order again, and having my credit card charged twice. I finally got the dress, which was beautiful, but not for me. I decided to return it since the website said returns only cost $25 restocking fee. Once I returned the dress they informed me I wouldn't be refunded an additional $50 for shipping. So I was out $75 instead of $25 like I originally thought. I scoured their website for proof of the shipping charges and have not found it. I disputed it with the company and they said that it was always their policy. So beware if you are planning to try on a dress and send it back it will cost you $75 to do so. It wouldn't have been a huge deal had their website not been so misleading.
I'm sure if you were to keep the dress it would be a different story because the dress was pretty and reasonably priced.
I was super excited to find a company that allows returns on used wedding dresses. I emailed the company asking them about expedited shipping as I was leaving the country and needed a dress ASAP. They quoted me $50-$80 for overnight shipping. Then another email saying maybe around $100. The third and final email said $199!!!! I checked on the UPS website (since they only use them) there was nothing for that price. I emailed them telling them that that it was way higher than I was quoted and UPS website has much cheaper prices. Their reply was 'that's how much we charge'. When I complained they basically said take it or leave it! I don't understand how they couldn't give me that quote from the start. They wanted me to pay $25 regular shipping plus $199 expedited shipping and when I objected they said it was company policy. Anyways, I ended up going with the regular shipping but before they shipped it I got an email with a few pictures of the damage to the dress. A few tears here and there that the seller never even mentioned! I finally got the dress today with missing jewels on the belt, torn fabric on buttons and stains on the corset and skirt. I don't know how they even missed it when they performed their 'full and thorough assessment'. I send them an email with everything but they completely brushed me off!! No apology, nothing. I knew it was a used dress from the start but if I'm going to pay $1700 then I deserve a well maintained dress! I'm going to send the dress back and just lose the $50 on shipping.
