Dressilyme experience

So after much research and months of debating, I have decided to order my wedding dress and matching lace jacket from dressilyme.com. I am so nervous but I found so many good reviews online that I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to have my dream dress at an afforable price.


I thought it would be helpful to other brides if I documented my experience here so that they will know what the Dressilyme experience is like and see if dressilyme is for them.


Before I ordered it I asked if they could send me pictures of my dress before they send it but they said they were too busy. I insisted that since my wedding isn't till next year, I didn't mind waiting. Finally, they agreed but said it would be 40-45 days instead of 20 days tailoring time.


I must say that I have found their presales customer service pretty good so far. Besides the one email they didn't reply too, most times they responded fairly quickly and were so helpful.


Since ordering they have answered all my questions fairly promptly. I will update this thread when I get pictures.

Update: I told them not to worry about adding more beading. There may be enough, the lighting is terrible in the photo, I really can't tell. But if I decide to add more I can just hand sew a few more on. I'm just so anxious to receive my dress so they are going to send me a link with a tracking number soon. Yay!


Please pray for me ya'll.

Ok ladies first things first. She is AMAZING! I had very very low expectations for this dress. I am yet to try it on. But I love it! The lace and the beading is absolutely beautiful!

Ok so here is my dress.


I absolutely love her and I'm just so greatful to the team at dressilyme who made my dream dress (within my price range). The dress is great, I will just shorten the halter strap as its alittle to long. The lace and the beading is fantastic. There is just so much material and the train is so long (1.2 metres). My advice to anyone considering this dress, I would recommend a shorter/lighter train. I will also have to get a petticoat because the skirt part isn't sitting so well even though it has so much tulle etc inside.


I don't know if I love the bolero. It's not what I expected and it doesn't have the same lace or beading as my dress like I thought it would.


Ok so here is photo 3387992-1


Here is the box my dress came in. 


Ok so here is photo 3387992-2


This is a close up of the back


Ok so here is photo 3387992-3


This is a long shot of the back. The train isn't set out properly sorry.Ok so here is photo 3387992-4


And this is the front of the dress.
