eDress Me vs Top Wedding
A wedding is one of the most special and memorable times of a woman's life. When getting ready for such an important day, every bride wants to feel attractive and confident. That all starts with a beautiful, well-fitting wedding dress.
Finding the right wedding dress, however, can be a time-consuming and frustrating experience. Driving from store to store, trying on different wedding dresses, and agonizing over limited selections can quickly turn the event into a nightmare.
eDressMe is a New York based company that began in 2001 as a dress site for Tango dancers. They offer a very wide selection of special occasion dresses at competitive prices. They were our top-ranked company in Prom Dresses. The reason they fall just about average for wedding dresses is they only offer more "informal" wedding dresses deemed more for destination weddings. There are only 21 wedding dress options to choose from and probably won't meet the needs of the majority of our shoppers.
The website is well organized and since there are only a few wedding dress options, you really don't need to navigate much to view all of their options. However, one nice option at eDressMe, that most of the other companies do not offer, is price matching and price adjustments. If you find the exact same dress, in stock from another company, they will match the price. Also, if the price of your dress is reduced within 14 days of purchase, they will adjust your price accordingly.
Unlike many other companies reviewed, eDressMe also offers store credit or exchanges for dresses that do not meet your satisfaction. You only have 3 days from receiving your order to contact them. Please check the website for more information in regards to their customer service policies.
eDressMe is United States based, reputable company that stands behind their product. Their prices are very competitive, yet their wedding dress selection is limited. If you are looking for a more casual wedding dress eDressMe is a great option, if you want something more formal, we would suggest you search one of the higher ranked companies.
Top Wedding offers a wide selection of wedding gowns, with more than 1,700 dresses in a variety of designs currently featured on their website. The site is easy to use, with left-hand navigation that allows brides to narrow down their options by price, silhouette, fabric, body shape, and several other categories. Customers can also sort by designer, but even their most popular one, Amaranta, didn't show up on any other retailers' sites; there are no dresses from more recognized names like Vera Wang or Oleg Cassini.
Top Wedding's customer reviews are a mixed bag. Some shoppers are very pleased with their purchase, stating that the dress exactly matched their expectations, was shipped on time, and that customer service handled any issues promptly. On the other hand, there are more than a few customers who had serious problems with getting orders delivered, with finding that the gown delivered was of much lower quality than what was pictured on the site, or that no help was offered by customer service until they posted a negative review online. Coupled with a discouraging F rating by the Better Business Bureau, these negative experiences make it difficult to know if a bride will receive the dress she wants in a timely fashion and if it will match what she saw on Top Wedding's website.
In fact, we suspect that Top Wedding is similar to other Chinese-based wedding retailers in our review that post images of dresses from high-end designers and then create copies to sell to their own customers. We found several dresses in the Morilee line by Madeline Gardner, for example, that are represented on Top Wedding's site with no mention of the designer, the line, or with any indication that the gowns sold are actually authentic.
Top Wedding's return policy is equally murky. On the return policy page, it says that there are no returns or exchanges on Dresses, unless the product received is incorrect (such as the wrong color, size, and so on). When reading through Top Wedding's detailed return instructions, it becomes clear that only returns that meet very strict criteria will actually be approved by their customer service department.
Although some customers have been very happy with their purchase from Top Wedding, their lack of accreditation and F rating with the BBB, along with seemingly sketchy practices (such as selling designer dresses with no credit given to those designers) leave us with a number of serious questions about the site's credibility. We strongly suggest that brides start their shopping with one of the more reputable retailers in our review.
Shopping for a wedding dress online can alleviate all of these frustrations. With the click of a mouse, you can browse through hundreds of wedding dresses from a variety of top wedding dress designers. You can find wedding dresses in all different sizes and colors, and often at a much lower cost than anything you can find in a local store.
However, not all wedding dress stores are the same. You should consider a few important factors when starting your wedding dress shopping effort:
