DO NOT DO BUISNESS WITH THEM!!!!!! I order a dress in August of 2013 and paid in full 599$ with the belief that in 14 weeks I would be recieving my dream wedding dress, I WAS SO WRONG!!!!! as the finish date neared I began email Janet and recieved a response saying in would recieve pictures for approval within two weeks of the finish date, which wasn't the original agreement but whatever I figured maybe they were running behind. After those two weeks went by I again emailed and emailed again and again with NO RESPONSE! I have been scammed and am out of 599$! It takes a horrible person to do something like this to honest working people!

I paid to have my dress made and the contract stated I would receive toil photos at 14 weeks, it has now been 22 weeks and the company has not contacted me or responded to my numerous emails Facebook messages or phone calls. This place is a scam, DO NOT pay these people because they do not make you a dress, they just take your money and ignore you. Another name is Leontina Gowns, They're the same people with a fake address.

They made a decent shell of a dress that I had a great seamstress make into an amazing dress! The bead work is cheap and poor quality, but they made the dress to my exact measurements. If you want a simple dress, then add your own embellishments, they are great!

I want to start by recommending this website to every bride who is looking for an affordable, quality, wedding dress of their dreams!
I had a re-creation of the Michael Angelo Walt Disney's Snow White wedding dress custom made from this website for my special day :). If anyone knows this line, the dress runs around $1400 in stores.
Right from the start, Janet has been so pleasant and professional to work with. For instance, emails were answered usually within 1 business day and she accurately acknowledged any questions. After my dress had been made, Janet sent me pictures so that I could confirm my satisfaction before mailing. However, I had a few alteration requests (ie to make the flowers on the bodice smaller, and more plentiful), which would obviously entail a fair amount of work. Janet gladly turned back the dress to the manufacturer for alterations and was adimant that I was 100% satisfied with the dress before mailing.
Postage to Canada was 1 week. Upon arrival of the dress, I was absolutely amazed at the quality of the dress. Materials were very comparable to those in the real dress. Reading other reviews, I understand some customers have been unsatisfied with stitching and zippers... But the quality of my dress was flawless! I could tell they really took the time to tend to the smallest details on the bodice. Dress fits perfect to size!
My only suggestion is order early!! The whole process took approximately 6 months.
I absolutely recommend this company to any custom wedding dress needs!

I am in love with my dress that I got from Janet at mybigfatbeautifulwedding.com . I was really starting to become hopeless as a single mother who really wanted a nice dress, but couldn't afford anything over $500. I was so happy when I came across this website to find out it was just in the next town over. My dress is amazing, really well made, the fit is perfect, I only need a bustle. I know that this is an online store, but I wish you could pick up the dress instead of having it mailed to you. I know it was a great way to save money and in the end I couldn't be happier. I am so grateful to Janet the owner for taking such good care of me and creating the dress of my dreams

I was the type of bride that researched everything to try a find the dress I wanted with out paying a fortune. This is where you need to go if you know exactly what you want and don't mind ordering online.

My dress was perfect. The details were wonderful. They were about two weeks behind schedule, but if you are ordering a wedding dress, give yourself extra time.

I ordered my wedding gown from mbfbw, and was VERY happy with my dress. Janet was very responsive and helpful, and the dress came out exactly like I wanted, and had tons of compliments on the dress!

My only "complaint" (very minor) was that the dress came out a little longer than the measurement sent, so I had to pay extra for it to be hemmed by a local seamstress, and had to wear a petticoat. No big deal though!

I will never forget Janet, the owner of this company. She made my wedding dress dreams come true. I never thought I could get a gown of the quality and style that I got from mybigfatbeautifulwedding.com My mom and I talked for months about the type of dress that I wanted and I just could't find it. After trying on 41 dresses, I finally settled on this gown at her boutique. http://www.mybigfatbeautifulwedding.com/capriana.htm I wanted a wedding dress that was modern, but with long sleeves. And here it was. I am so thankful that my gown was gorgeous yet appropriate for a winter wedding. I looked and felt like a princess on my day!

Janet is a great person and was very friendly when I first talked to her. I had really high hopes for my wedding dress made online custom and they accepted the job. She seemed very pleasant. She gave me the intermediate pictures, which I was unsure about, but the dress was on the right track so we kept going. I voiced my concerns, but thought I did not really have many option at this time. The dress was a couple days late coming in after I expedited it, so it would be as if I did not, but they at least tell you that up front so that happens. What I was really surprised about was when I got the dress. Honestly, the fit was tight and the dress way way too long for a person that is 5' 2''. There were obvious quality issues such as threading, beading coming loose, and buttons on the back coming off with each additional try on. The skirt and dress had stains and I was told to get things cleaned and fix it. I already paid for the dress and the point of getting a custom dress is to minimize alteration cost. Even more upsetting was the lack of professionalism in responding to my complaint. I have sent two additional e-mails and have not got a response from her. It is sad because I was unhappy with the product and it is a kind to at least try to do something. I responded professionally and was not even given an e-mail. When I had any concerns, the e-mails and contact started being farther apart. I bought another dress from an amazing vendor, but I would have at least hoped they would acknowledge the issue and try to assuage the situation considering the amount of money I paid for it.

I am truly sorry you felt this way. Once a dress is taken for alterations several times, and then we are told after the fact ,there's really nothing we can do at that point. You did approve your gown on the finishing floor. We stand behind our gowns and are always happy to correct any problem that was caused on our end. I wish you the best.
