DO NOT order from Shopofbrides.com, I was one of those stupid girls who bought a dress (NAWD2012) from them and it was horrible!! I got exact measurements and submitted them Sept 16th. I received the dress Nov 24th for my wedding on Dec 20th. The Champagne was an ugly gold color. The dress was double the size plus a foot longer. There were only 3 layers instead of 6 so there was no fluffiness like the princess pictures. They added sleeves which were so large I could fit my legs through them. There was no support (bustier) in the body of the dress, only cheap cardboardlike material for the boning. You have to tie it extremely tight in the back to get any shape to hold. The line that separates the waist from the stomach came up past my bellybutton. The rhinestones were just shiny cheap material. The tiara I also ordered was NOT the one I picked, it was big and gawdy but was delivered in broken pieces. The veil was a peice of material that looked like it was cut with jagged scissors. There wasn't any mesh or lining just a giant peice of material. I looked like Fiona in her wedding dress from the move Shrek!! In the end we went to Amanda's Bridal, rushed ordered a dress, got it in two weeks and it was beautiful. I ended up spending $1100 plus the $400 that I can't get back.

Hi, Fiona here in Dublin, Ive bought my dress from Shop of Brides, and the only thing I can say is that my dress was beautiful exactly what I wanted and more lovely in reality. It wasnt until I read this site that I took notice... you see I couldn't close the back of my dress, It was 3.5 inchs too small! I thought I measured up wrong but checking the email with my measurements against the measurements of my dress, It was way off and WRONG.I have now managed to get a brilliant lady who is a qualified dress maker to look at my dress and is going to do a job on it to make it perfect.I had to go out and shop for a fabric match which I was lucky to find and then I have the expense of having the dress altered.Noe in defence of Shop of Brides, they have offered to make me a new dress and send my old one back, but I have fallen so in love with this one that I refused and thanked them.I did however ask them to make a gesture of good faith by sending me a petticoat and they said they would send me one only when I submit an order for my bridesmaids dresses! Anyway hope this helps, and like everything you should never judge all with the one stone, while I do agree that there are dresses that are fawlty, there are also dresses that are so beautiful like mine, I would'nt hesitate in recommending Shop of Brides as it is an excellent service and I was able to track my dress all along too.It is a very efficient site and I found that I got the perfect dress, even if I did have a minor problem.Hope this helps, Thanks, fiona in Dublin, ireland

With any online shops you are always taking a risk in ordering a dress and depending on the dress, each one is a different size not one dress is the same and your body is different too. My suggestion is order a bigger size and have it token down and have it resized to fit your body. Thats what I did and I love my dress from shopofdress.com

I got my lovely dress3 weeks before wedding from http://www.shopofbrides.com
I just wanted to say thank you so much for my wedding dress! It is absolutely amazingly beautiful! I have to admit that I was a little skeptical ordering the dress online, but I couldn't have asked for a more beautifully, well made dress! They have done such a wonderful job, and customer service was above and beyond excellent! I will recommend you guys to everyone! Again, thank you so much...I can't wait to wear my beautiful dress on my wedding day!

ShopofBrides.com - I would highly recommend you to stay far from this company
Shopofbrides.com
United States
shopofbrides.com

Shopofbrides is a scam company and located in China and not in USA. I was one of the victims of their fraud.
Shopofbrides.com steal images from designer's web-sites to deceive buyers. Later, I discovered that the picture with the dress I liked was stolen from the Joli Bridal web-site.
I am sure that my story is like many other stories. I liked a lot a dress from their web-site. I was so naive to believe everything that is said on their web-site and stupid enough to only check testimonials on their web-site instead of finding real reviews.
I have paid 360 dollars for the dress and rush delivery. After two months, instead of wonderful wedding dress from the picture I have received a very poor quality copy barely reminding the dress from the picture. When I wrote an e-mail with my complaints and picture of me in this dress, seller simply refused to accept return and give money back. No doubts, it is a pure scam company.
I had to buy another dress a few days before wedding as it wold be shame to go in the one I've got from shopofbrides. Any white dress would look mch better that what I have got from Chinese scam company.

I would highly recommend you to stay far from this company. They also have twin web-sites, so be extremely careful. When you begin to proceed to checkout, look at the address and you will see that it is China.
