Buying wedding dresses from Etsy

Jessica, on June 9, 2022 at 10:22 PM Posted in Wedding Attire 0 6
Hi all! Wondered if anyone had any feedback/experience with/opinion on buying a wedding dress from Etsy? I've seen models I absolutely love (and the shops are highly rated) but then having spoken to a friend, she mentioned some of them doctor the reviews so they look better than they are. Any thoughts?

    Never had the experience of buying a dress from Etsy, but I’d be skeptical about online dress shopping. It’s just hard to determine if the dress will fit and sometimes it looks different online versus in person.

    I custom ordered mine from Etsy, but she is a designer I've worn dresses from before, so I knew the quality was wonderful. You can also check the etsy shop instagrams and look at tagged photos! If you're interested, MollyNguyenDesigns made mine and her work is awesome.

    I have only ever received good products from Etsy and always found items true to the listing/reviews.

    I will say though that, due to my budget, I've had to do a reasonable amount of online shopping for dresses and it is extremely challenging to know what the fabric will look and feel like in person.

    If I had the budget I would definitely opt for going to stores

    I think in general Etsy is a good place to buy dresses however I had a horrible experience where I bought two that were supposed to be custom-made and absolutely look nothing like the pictures. I do find that designer show me Ukraine that are frequently on that site of outstanding work.

    I had my dress custom made from an Etsy boutique. It took her 5 months, but it was worth it. I sent her a photo of the dress I wanted, but I wanted a cream color instead of white or ivory. I ordered a standard size since my mother does alterations, but for an extra fee she would have made it custom sized.

    I haven't bought no clothes from Esty I have bought other items and were pleased. I hope that you have a good experience with whom you are buying the dress from.
