After I tried dresses on at a bridal shop with no luck finding one I "loved", my friend suggested I check out Group USA in the mall. I didn't even know they had a bridal section. I tried on several dresses and then I found the one that fit great and had all the elements I was looking for in a dress (corset back), a-line, with the sheer/lace over satin. The best thing was it fit well enough that the only alterations needed were the bustle and hem. Loved my dress so much and danced my heart away at the wedding that I'll be keeping it preserved too although I don't know which company I'll use.

I was one of those brides who waited till the last minute to purchase a dress. Unfortunately, because of my large side I could not find a dress I liked off the rack at any of the bridal shops. I went to Group USA on a whim. My sister actually found the dress for me, thank God she was there to help becuase their customer service is horrible. I was still happy overall because the dress was cheap and on sale! It looks like it's worth $1,000 but it only costed me $400!

I found my dress the first time I went to look. I had a great salesperson I was working with and was very happy with the service. I needed some alterations done and left the dress there. When I came back they had sewn the hem slanting up on the bottom and the under skirt would not lay correctly. The sales lady assured me they would fix it for free and have it ready in three weeks. I came back in three weeks and they had not touched my dress. They also got a new manager and she refused to do it for free. Through a long argument process and going over her head, I finally got my dress done and did not pay a dime. But the experience really went bad in the end. Their management is terrible.

Group USA is a discount off-the-rack outlet where I got a Maggie Sottero look-alike for less than half the cost ^_^ The beading was a bit different / simpler on the bodice, and there was no beading running down the train of the lookalike. Other than that, it was very clearly inspired by the "Dion" dress style. When I showed my bridesmaids photos I took, they couldn't even tell that it was a diff dres...So value was great :)

However, since GroupUSA is off-the-rack, some of the beads had fallen off, and there was a stain on the inside of the dress (in the chest area) from all the people who had tried on the dress before me. These are pretty minor problems, though, that any tailor can take care of during alterations...

Service was average for this type of store/outlet -- don't expect the fawning attention some bridal shops provide. Lots of styles / varieties, a good range of sizes available, no need to rush order (which was a major plus for me)...

Wasn't such a fan of their veil styles, so I got that elsewhere (in Hong Kong for ~20 USD :P)

Dealing with Group USA was a nightmare from the beginning. It started with the outwardly rude bridal consultant - while waiting on us she badmouthed other customers and kept disappearing (though the store was far from busy), we had to search for her many times for help during the visit. Just our presence seemed an inconvenience for her, and we overheard her talking badly about us to her coworker as we were checking out. She also told us at one point that alterations would be free, then later on told us there was a cost for my dress. The reason being, off-white dresses' alterations are free, but white dresses have a fee (why does that seem made up to me?).

Besides dealings with her, we had problems ordering the right size. My dress style was only in the store starting at size 6, and the woman said I would most likely need a 2. It bothered me that they refused (somewhat brusquely) to measure me for sizing, the manager just looked at me and told me what size I should order, and I had to just hope that when it came in that it fit. When I took it for alterations, the tailor took one look at it and said, "This is yours?? It's way too big!", and ended up basically tailoring it down to a size 0. Thank goodness it was a size too large rather than a size too small! They also initially made a mistake on the order, and when we caught it, they charged us for "changing the order" - even though it was their mistake.

Their loss of stars on flexibility comes from the fact that you can only make payments on your card (we put the dress on a Group USA credit card) through the mail. Not by phone, not online, not even in the store. The department that handles communication about the card is very slow, and we got late fees on payments that had already been made, which we fought but were never removed. Needless to say, we closed the account the minute the balance was paid.

We brought my dress to Camille La Vie for the alterations; it's owned by the same company but seems much better managed. Hilda was my tailor and was such a sweet lady, and did a wonderful job.

The dress I chose was perfect and affordable, which is why value has 5 stars and I gave some points to quality (however, they lost some points in the "service" aspect of it). They called us when the dress was ready for pickup, so I gave them 5 stars for responsiveness.
