review and photos of my wedding dress by dressilyme
I thought i would come back and write a review after my wedding RE my wedding dress i ordered from Dressilyme, i have always given them the benefit of the doubt as the reviews i have read prior to ordering have always been great, and they have always been prompt with replies.
I initially wanted the Maggie Sottero Fiorella, after ordering and sending my measurements, the dress makers advised that because of my body shape, big boobs, even bigger belly and smal hips that the fishtail dress wouldnt fit and would possibly alter the dress and what i loved about the dress might be different. At the time i was totally disappointed and really couldnt see past the dress. But i their appreciated honestly instead of making and sending me a badly fitting dress. After searching the MS website and the Sottero and Midgley i finally found and fell in love with Rebecca :)
So i changed my order, my dress is in their colour 60 which i worried about slightly as i wanted a true champagne colour, and obviously screens and material can look very different.
My dress and my daughter dress arrived, both of which i was amazed with when taken out of the packaging. The flower girls dress was an exact colour match to mine, was extremely well made to the exact measurements given, the dress itself was amazing quality with great workman ship, the detail was outstanding. The dress had an underskirt, along with a toule underlay, and a liner then the satin material itself. I was quite astounded by the quality well above my expectations.
My dress was just the same, perfect quality, as you will see quite a lot of detail with folds of material and lace appliques, lots of beading and quite a large train. Again there was quite a lot of layers, an underskirt, 3 layers of toule, then a liner and the satin itself on top. So in total 6 layers. The dress was a little heavy which reassured me because it was so well made. They added a bustle for me free of charge, sent the emails with these pictures before it left the factory and were very healpful with aftercare.
I asked the girl to mark it as a gift so that there would be no custom charges, and she did. I was not charged anything on top of the postage i paid. I think the overall process took around 5-6 weeks. I didnt rush my order, but i did take atleast a week choosing my replacement dress. All in all i would give them 150% as i was completely satisfied and they even surpassed my expactions by a mile.
I hope this review helps any future brides with their purchase. I have also added some pictures from my wedding day, i wore a hoop with one ring at the bottom and 3 layers of toule on to the top. xxx
