Hi Team over at Venus Bridal Collection,
Just wanted to thank you for everything you guys did to make my wedding amazing and make me feel beautiful. I have been recommending you to so many people. My wedding was featured in the January issue of Homemade Bride magazine, and you guys received credit for the dress. I bought the veil and tiara featured from you also. I have other even better stand alone photos you may use to market your business. If you email me at email@example.com, I will happily pass them along to you. :)
Sure, ordering at dress off the internet seemed like a good idea at the time. Except! When it gets to you and it’s not at all what it looked like online. Even pages that purport to have thousands or millions of fans can be scams. Just because a site has a pretty designer picture on its page doesn’t mean that’s at all what will be delivered to your door. A beautiful picture on a website is no guarantee. The problem is when sites use designer stock photos to try and sell designer knock off dresses.
Regardless of the fact that many Websites will claim they use the same design patterns and materials as the designer who actually makes the dress you want, you will not receive the same dress as the one you see in a bridal salon.Their wedding dress's are made with low-quality, synthetic fabrics and/or cheap, machine-made lace. Especially the ball-gown variety, require a lot of fabric, and good fabric, like silk and handmade lace, is expensive. That's why many online sellers favor cheap synthetics like polyester to help keep their costs down.
Finding the proper fit for your frame will guarantee your wedding gown makes you feel both comfortable and confident.
Try to give yourself about 6 months for the dress to arrive after finding "the one" and ordering.
Give yourself another 3-4 months for alterations.
Total time after you find your wedding dress: 9-10 months.
After choosing your dresses and ordering, it could take up to 4 months for your gowns to arrive. You will also need about 3-4 months for alterations.
Total time after ordering: 4-8 months
Mother of the Bride / Groom
After choosing and ordering your dress, it may also take up to 4 months for your dress to arrive. You will also need 3-4 months for alterations.
Total time after ordering: 4-8 months
Even though these times are a general schedule to help you, there are times when time is running short and you need to get creative. Brides, if there is a dress that you absolutely must have, you can ask the shop owner if you could buy the store sample. Many times, they will be happy to sell it to you and alterations can begin immediately.
There is also a rush order that could cut your time down to three months to arrive. This is for a couple hundred dollars, depending on the designer rates.
Bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride / Groom, sometimes, the designers will have a few styles pre-made to a certain size and color and waiting to ship to the first buyer. The shop owners can check out their stock for you to see if the dress you love can be shipped within a few weeks. If not, the store owner might also sell you the store sample if you ask.
