Anomalie vs solobridal

Jacqui, on October 23, 2019 at 6:49 AM Posted in Wedding Attire 0 12
Hey yall

Im a plus size bride to be and I'm in the process of having a custom dress made. Anomalie is making it, but I am very nervous to use them. If I pay for the dress now, it will be delivered in March. MY WEDDING IS IN JUNE Solobridal *china base*, said they can do the dress for half the price and it will be here in January. Have any of you dealt with either companies? Pics will be great...

    I don't have experience with these, but I would be cautious of shops from China unless you see real positive reviews (somewhere other than on their site). If you want to buy a dress online, Azazie is based in California, they do free custom sizing, and you can even try on sample dresses at home for only $15 (covers shipping both ways). I have heard nothing but great things about Azazie, I've actually tried three of their sample dresses and I think I'm going to end up ordering one of them Smiley smile

    I’m not sure what the concern is with a March delivery for a June wedding. Sounds like a great timeline even if it comes in and there’s something you want changed, there’s plenty of time to see a seamstress for alterations.

    ive never heard for solobridal. I have heard a lot of bad things about various China-based bridal sites sending knockoff dresses, coming in poorly sized with cheap materials and failed attempts at replicating (/ripping off) designer gowns. Don’t know if this site is one of those, but I’d be wary. Even if it IS okay quality, I wouldn’t trust their timeline— I’ve heard a lot of stories about orders from China being held up in customs for weeks or even months. If you have the extra money to spend and/or it’s cheap enough that you wouldn’t mind spending on it even if it doesn’t any up being a viable option for your wedding day, there’s no harm in ordering it to see how it goes, I suppose. But personally, I’d put my faith in Anomalie.

    Yeah I've heard a ton of bad things about China companies as well...however, solobridal have real brides w real pics. 95% of all dresses are made in China. I'm afraid anomalie isn't going to get my vision right...and I've to so many bridal stores it's not funny .they dont have what I want
    While 60 days is a decent timeline, it's also prime wedding and prom season here in MD.. it might be pushing it a little

    Hello! I am also a plus size bride and was super worried about going through Anomalie because I didn't know if it would turn out right since the entire process was online. I ordered my dress in like March/April of last year and I ended up receiving it in September. It was so much better than I imagined and I'm so happy!! I will have to upload some pictures of the dress I've been paranoid that FH will find the pictures haha

    Of course! I was worried because my mom helped me do my measurements and we were hoping we did everything the right way. I'm sure you will have an absolutely stunning gown! I just finished my final fitting last week and the only changes I needed were adding a bustle and i wanted to cover a bit more of my back with the extra lace they sent.

    Yes, I understand about the China dresses. 98% of wedding gowns come from China. I was concerned because I didn't know if the dress would be gorg when I got it...🤞🏾that it will be my dream dress. I also, asked anomalie would my dress be here in time...according to them it will be here in April. My wedding is in June
