LIGHT IN THE BOX

Light in the Box is a Chinese Wholesale company with over 95,000 products that include wedding dresses, cell phones, health and beauty products, outdoor sports, and much more. The categories of wedding dresses are listed on the left side, offering many different options to select from. The website is organized well and has a clean look.

Each wedding dress ordered is either custom made or tailored to the customer's measurements. This causes the wedding dress to be shipped at a minimum of 16 working days from when the order is placed. The shipping costs vary based upon each item, they are calculated at checkout.

The website looks nice, but with a little more research about customer's experiences purchasing wedding dresses from Light in the Box, we have grave concerns about their quality of wedding dresses and customer service. There are more complaints listed about this company then any other company we reviewed. Many of the complaints have to do with the extremely poor quality of wedding dress received, stating that the wedding dress pictured on the website does not reflect the quality of wedding dress received.

The website states that the pictures shown with the model and the wedding dress are taken in their studios, but we found the same exact pictures listed on many other company's websites. These pictures in fact come directly from the wedding dress designers themselves, showing the falsehood in Light in the Box's claims. Other complaints involve trying to contact customer service and not being able to get a hold of a real person. We repeatedly called the phone number listed and could not get a live person on the phone either.

The return policy makes the customer believe that it should be an easy process to return a wedding dress. However, we found many complaints that once a customer was able to get ahold of the company, they often received the run around and were told the wedding dress could not be returned.

There is too much negative feedback on this company for us to recommend it. With several better wedding dress options available, we suggest you shop elsewhere.

DRESSILY ME

Dressily Me is based in China and sells occasions wear, such as wedding and prom dresses, along with a selection of jewelry and accessories, lingerie, and swimwear. Their website is full of thousands of dresses in every style and color imaginable, and shoppers can easily narrow down the options using categories like "Luxury Styles" and "Reception Dresses", along with more detailed information like train or sleeve length, waistline, silhouette, and trend collection.

If you're looking to get a wedding dress on a shoestring budget, you'll be impressed by the prices at Dressily Me. Unfortunately, you may be extremely disappointed by what you actually receive. The dresses sold by Dressily Me are copies of those pictured on their website, not originals. For example, the dress labeled as "Stunning Satin A-line Sweetheart Neckline Wedding Dress" was originally the Private Label by G Bridal Gown (Style 1346) and was discontinued in 2013. (You can even see the attempt to remove the watermark from the photo on the Dressily Me site.) While buying it from Dressily Me may save you $800, you can't count on getting a high-quality replica: our research found review after review that complained about dresses that fit horribly (despite having supposedly been made to the customer's specifications), didn't come close to looking like what was pictured, or were made from very cheap materials.

It is understandable that a retailer would not allow for custom-made items to be returned - but Dressily Me customers should be aware that, because nearly every wedding dress sold there is made to order, they will not be able to return their dress if there are issues. We feel that their stated policy on dresses that arrive with glaring measurement differences from what the customer specified - "find a local tailor to make adjustments" and "please kindly forgive" any errors within one inch - can put brides in the difficult position of winding up with a badly-made wedding dress that can't be fixed or returned.

Because of the numerous reviews that describe major problems with the wedding dresses delivered by Dressily Me, we cannot confidently recommend that brides-to-be shop there for their special day. We strongly recommend choosing a retailer that sells dresses that are manufactured by the original designer, not a company that sells knock-off copies at deeply discounted prices.

Wedding Dresses

To help you find the Best Wedding Dresses, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of Light In The Box and Dressily Me.

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.

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:

  • Selection. How large is the wedding dress selection? A large number of wedding dress designs will increase your chances of finding the perfect wedding dress to suit your body type, budget and preferences.
  • Cost. How does the price of the wedding dress compare with other stores? Are you getting a great price, or are you paying a premium? Does the store only cater to high end wedding dresses, or do they offer a selection that anyone can afford?
  • Return Policy. In the event you're not happy with your wedding dress once it arrives, are you able to return it for a full refund?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best wedding dress stores available today. We hope this information helps you find that perfect wedding dress for your beautiful wedding!
