    I don't have any experience with birds grey, but I have had a very positive experience with Azazie! Way better than David's Bridal.

    I personally don't have any experience with Birdy Grey (though I've heard positive reviews of them!), however, my bridesmaids all ordered their dresses from Azazie, and it was an awesome experience! I created a showroom and added dresses into it. My bridesmaids could also add dresses they liked. If everyone ordered their chosen dresses through the showroom within 24 hours of each other, the dresses were guaranteed to be made from the same dye lot (and therefore exactly the same color). The shipping estimate was accurate (and they ordered them right at the start of the pandemic). The quality is good as well! I'd certainly recommend Azazie.

    The dye lot thing from Azazie is not a big deal (as in, I've ordered from there a bunch of times and none of us ordered at the same time - the dresses are the same color).

    Azazie has WAY more options and in my opinion and nicer range of fabrics. Birdie Gray has a very limited number of styles and very few that work on a wide range of body types/sizes. I'm a BM in a wedding later this year and will also be 2 months post-partum. i'm so glad she chose Azazie bc the BG dresses (although very cute!) had literally no options that would accommodate the support needed for nursing boobs!!!). Just an example, but something to think about when picking.

    I'll echo the previous comments about Azazie! I was in a wedding where we got our dresses and because of that decided to use Azazie for my wedding. Good quality, a really good range of prices and styles, and they're always adding more! I also love the variety of dress styles, which is great if you're not having everyone in the same dress so everyone can find something they're comfortable with wearing. Other pros to Azazie: the try-on at home option and the custom sizing. Custom sizing is free for all dresses, and really helps with cutting down on alteration costs.

    Oh perfect! At least for me, there is nothing that would have worked because BG fabric is all a little stretchy, but none of them would have worked with a bra. Good luck!

    My bridesmaids got theirs from Birdy Gray. They are really great quality for the price. Looks no different than other dresses I've seen in weddings that cost way more.

    LOVE Birdy Grey!

    One of my bridesmaids just got her dress a few months ago and loves it. The color is just as described, and she said it's super comfortable. They even added a little bag with extra things in case of emergencies (safety pin, button, thread, boob tape).

    I personally love the Bridal Salon option that they offer. It's so nice having everyone being able to access the same salon and seeing what dress everyone bought.

    Team Azazie hands down! I have worn both Azazie and Birdy Grey as a bridesmaid before, and I have to say I had a much better experience with Azazie. The quality of the dress was better, customer service was more responsive, and there were more styles to choose from that accommodated all body types. I found that Birdy Grey had very few styles to accommodate women with large chests who need to wear normal bras like myself (I struggled a lot to find something that worked given my H cup bra size), whereas Azazie has hundreds of styles that work for any body type. Birdy Grey also does not have true maternity dresses--they only have empire waist ones that double as maternity dresses, unlike Azazie which has actual maternity options. This is important to keep in mind if you have any pregnant bridesmaids. If you're on the fence between the two, I'd highly recommend Azazie!

    My bridesmaids are ordering their dresses from a Azazie! As mentioned from others though, I have no experience with Birdy Grey to truly say I prefer one over the other

    With Azazie from what I can tell is their shades of reds are 1 shade off. Their burgundy was like candy apple and their cabernet was burgundy.

    Bought my bridesmaid dresses from birdy grey. Quality was good for $99 ans you can get three free swatch. I will say be aware if you want to buy their matching ties/bow ties/ or pocket square to do it well ahead of time because they tend to go out of stock and won鈥檛 be restock for Several months. We had to buy the pocket square and ties on a different website so it was a nightmare trying to match it!

    My BMs got theirs from Birdy Grey. They run really good sales from time to time. Usually 30-50% dresses around the holidays or when they鈥檙e phasing out styles.

    Hi! Originally, my bridal party was going to purchase from Azazie because of the cost, style choices, and custom sizing. However, per the pandemic, they upped their production window from 4 weeks to 12 weeks (this was in January 2021). This was a window I, as the bride, was not comfortable with. Who's to say a dress wouldn't get delayed longer? Based on this timeline, and my wedding being in July, I opted to make the switch to Birdy Grey. We went with Dusty Blue. I ordered swatches prior and they were lovely and still fit with our color scheme (we were originally going with Twilight from Azazie, a truly lovely option). BG customer service has been a lifesaver for my maids. Easy exchanges, especially with the 45 day extended return time per Love in the Time of Covid. I am very pleased with the color, quality, and my maids appreciate the $99 price tag on all gowns, regardless of size. I hope this insight helps! Congratulations and happy shopping!

    I love both! Although my favorite part about Azazie is the custom sizing. No need for alterations!
