BACK: bad experience with dressillyme =( need help

First I just want to say that I have missed you ladies! I hope you all had a great holiday season and a very Happy New Year!


I haven't been around lately because, well, I had a pretty horrible experience trying to get my dress made and was just turned off to all my planning because of it =(....I wont get into details right now. I'm trying to get back in the mood to plan some more and can use your help...also I am back on the dress hunt, so if anyone sees a bohemian style, drop waist fit and flare slim a-line in pink let me know. Or if you happen to know someone who can make my dress design that would be great! ....I'm open to looking at different styles...I think you have a pretty good idea of what I like at this point, if not check my bio.


 


Thanks ladies <3

I am so sorry to hear this news! I had been wondering where you were. I will definitely keep my eyes and ears open for a new dress. Do you want the same color?

=sigh= yes it seems there was a HUGE language barrier and they just didn't understand what is was I really wanted. Things started out great, and I really thought my design was understood...guess not. It was after the dress was made that the problems started. They refused to make me the dress again and  kept trying to get me to reconsider the one already made... but it wasn't the dress I ordered and I wasn't about to pay for a dress I was never going to wear...I went back and fourth with them for 3 weeks! they are finally giving me my money back, minus a 5% handling fee. It was SOOO STRESSFUL!!!


 Mrs.CaleYoung = I would like a light pink dress, but will consider other colors ;) I can always count on you =)


Thanks everyone!

You are more than welcome and so sorry you had to go through that! There is no one local that could make the dress you want? Your sketch work is beautiful!

I understand exactly what you mean. I have been having dress issues too. At least that is my only issue. Everything else is just icing on the cake. Quite literally for me.

Oh no Alanna :.( - I feel so so bad to read your post :( I really hoped that it will work for you as good as it worked for me there. I'm so sad that you had so much trouble with them and I also had a few "language problems" with them but could sort this out and my dress came out perfect for me.
Now I'm more than before on the hunt for your deram dress. What price range have you for your dress?
So sorry honey!!!

Thanks anyways, don't feel bad about it ;)

I was missing you girls too, there were so many times I wanted to stop in and keep you posted, but I literally was arguing with this company to get my money back everyday and would get frustrated...I ran out of steam and was just put off to the planning thing for a while...but I'm BACK! :)
