I'm a newbie, be gentle

Ok I've been watching this board for a few weeks, and I finally took the leap and made an account ((just specifically to join this group)). I won't be getting married until October 2011 ((Halloween to be exact)), but I'm trying to do little things now so that I'm not a raving lunatic when the big day comes.


so onto the topic at hand...


I am really considering using dressilyme when I do get my dress, but my question, have many of you ordered swatches from them first? How many swatches did you get? How do you specify materials and colors and such?

I didn't but I kind of wish I had. the purple in the dresses came out more maroon than I had wanted.

Yeah, they have pictures of swatches on their site too, but I don't trust my computer screen to display colors true to life. I also want to feel the fabric so I know without a doubt these are the people I want to go with.

Welcome to PW! Seeing as you have lots of time before your wedding I would go ahead and order some swatch samples to ensure you're getting what you want.

with the time you have, I'd get the swatches. I didn't and I was thrilled, but I was reassured about the ivory color first. I may get swatches for the bridesmaids dresses.

Has anyone actually ordered swatches from them? I'm not sure how to request certain fabrics, or how to get different colors.

Hi!


Welcome to PW!  I just ordered some swatches of the taffeta today because I had been going back and forth with one of the customer service reps about details of an engagement party dress I want them to make for me, and the color I want it to be.  I just sent her an email earlier this evening asking for swatch cards of the taffeta, so when she responds, I'll give you the deets.  


Maybe the other girl who ordered the swatches already will see this post and answer your question before I do.  BRB

Here is the link they sent me to order my swatches.  Specify your fabric choice in the notes section.

I'm still waiting for them to get me my quote back so they can tell me how to order the swatches.


@Lmga, were those the colors you requested to see?

Hi krystalinn ,


Since you have a plenty of time ahead your wedding, you totally can order the swatches. I have learnt from them the actual color chart on the website is base on the satin fabric, if your dress is made of other fabrics, the color will be a little different from the ones you saw on the color chart...
