DressilyMe Real Customer Review: Paula's Taffeta Mermaid Wedding Dress

This week's Real Customer Review is a post from Paula, a bride from Kenya. We're pleased to receive her comment for our wedding dress from DressilyMe Review Center. She also submitted some pictures of how she looked in the dress. Scroll on down to see them all!

Paula's Review and Pictures of Her Look







I ordered this dress on 19th November and I had received it in December before the New Year! I was a bit worried when I received the package via DHL because it looked very small. I wondered how they could fit the dress in there! I was really anxious and could not wait to have a look. When I opened the package I was relieved to see the full dress intact and all the contents well packaged. I tried it on and I was happy! It was stitched really well and I really like it! The bead work is excellent and I love the chapel trail. The back is a tie-back and this allows me the flexibility to tighten the dress as much as I would like. I also bought a matching veil and accessories and they all came together in the same delivery - thus saving me on shipping. I would recommend this service to ANYONE - no matter where you are. My customer representative was very polite and responsive all through the order processing and shipping and this was very reassuring. I am a happy and satisfied customer who is prepared for her wedding day! :) Paula, KENYA

The Taffeta Mermaid Wedding Dress



This mermaid wedding dress is made of taffeta for the overlay while satin for the lining. Delicate appliques and beadings adorn this gorgeous gown. The skirt is beautifully gathered and falls into a chapel length train.

DressilyMe Real Customer Review: 2littleslauren's Chiffon Beach Wedding Dress

Thanks to 2littleslauren for taking the time to create a thread on weddingbee board and share her experience with DressilyMe.com to all brides. We're pleased to receive her full satisfication for our wedding dress. Below let's take a look at the photos and her review!

2littleslauren's DressilyMe Experience

And finally, a million from DressilyMe (in order how I opened it):

Arrived in DHL packaging:
 

 
Came inside out:













Ok so now my review. First let me state that I am PICKY. UBER picky. I can't stand imperfections. Craftsmanship is incredibly important to me. David's Brial isn't up to par for me, Alllure, Maggies, I expect that kind of quality in my dress. That being said.... please read.

I placed my order on Jan. 20th (custom sizing).

They told me last Friday it was shipping, it arrived today (Monday). WOW FAST!

I didn't get any pictures before they shipped it which made me nervous even though I asked for it.

So the actual dress:

-smells like fish (not terribly and I am sure I can get this smell out somehow)

-BEAUTIFUL craftsmanship.

-The ruffles on the skirt are a little uneven, and not like the original Ella from the pics, the replica's are much heavier, but probably fixable and honestly I still think it's pretty. Nothing that would make or break this for me if I were wearing it in my wedding.

-The material is high quality. The appliques look fantastic.

-The fit is a little big (mostly my fault, I measured myself and added a tad extra as a safety measure)

-I cannot get over the fact that I paid $170 for this. It is nicer material, quality and sewing than 90% of what I have seen at chains like David's Brial.

I would recommend DressilyMe.com to anyone. (No I am not a compensated employee or something, lol!) Even though I am not wearing this dress for my wedding, they did a FANTASTIC job. The quality is wonderful. The replication is 90-95% the original design. I am incredibly impressed by their work!!

The Chiffon Beach Wedding Dress



Featuring the tiered chiffon layers, this beach wedding dress (STYLE NO.WWD009D1) has a strapless neckline which is full of appliques and beadings. It also has a train in about 30-4ocm length with lace-up back. Even better, the current price tag US $181.37 makes it a perfect option to any bride-to-be.
