I purchased a wedding dress from this site for a really good price. I fell in love with the dress online and was praying, after I paid through paypal, that I did not just get scammed. I hadn't heard any information about the progress after a month, and I was supposed to have received the dress by this time. I had emailed the seller several times and even sent messages through the website chat "email" since they were never online to chat live, but still no response. By this time, I could no longer reach their website since it was "temporarily down" (this seems to happen often-but it eventually comes back up). I became extremely worried. Finally, I filed a dispute against them through paypal and the next day they responded. Funny how it took a complaint that I wanted a refund for them to get back to me. They apologized and said they had already shipped the dress and would provide tracking as soon as they got it. Approx. 4 days later, I received the tracking info and had my dress within a couple days (from China to Arizona) about a month and a half after the purchase date. I was extremely relieved that I received ANYTHING! Thank goodness for paypal in this situation.
As for the dress, I am mostly satisfied (considering the price) but the quality was a bit different than the picture on the site. The dress could almost be a cute bridesmaid dress rather than a "wedding dress". I ordered a slender empire style dress that follows the "column" style dresses. I think because the material is so thin, it takes away from the wedding "wow" factor that I expected and saw in the picture. There appeared to be a bit more sparkle and glimmer on the picture, but only a little bit on the dress. The dress is not too bad for what I paid, but with some extra time and a little more money I can have a much better dress that I have been wishing for with some additions and alterations (simple petticoat and some crystals all over!). Even with all of that the dress is much cheaper than something from a local bridal shop. As for the free jewelery that comes with the order, it is kind of ok but extremely cheap [ go figure X) ] and they did not send the one that I requested, so that was a bit disappointing. I will not be purchasing from this site again because I prefer better customer service follow up and a more realistic quality to the picture. If I would have ordered a poofier dress, it may have looked better, quality-wise, but that is only an assumption. If you have a little extra time and money to assure the dress is what you want, this is not a "bad" option; however, order at your own risk. I appreciate that I did receive ANYTHING at all LOL (because I feared they were just going to run with my money), but if you do order, I would suggest only doing it through paypal in the event you need to dispute to get stuff done. If I decide to get a different dress, I found a really awesome one on lightinthebox.com; however, there are so many other options too out there. I would just suggest follow your heart and check the reviews about the site. Hope this helps!
