Colorsbridesmaid.com vs Uwdress.com

Does anyone have any experience ordering from either of these companies?


The reviews for colorsbridesmaid.com seem alright but the reviews for UWdress.com are scary / terrible. The weird thing is that the websites look identical and seem to have all the same dresses/colors options. Is UWdress.com a knockoff of colorsbridesmaid.com or did they duplicate / change the name recently because of all the bad reviews? Just seems really strange and makes me nervous to order anything.


The prices are great and I want my bridesmaids to wear different style moss green dresses which is proving to be an impossible feat (unless you have an unlimited budget for custom gowns, which I dont!)


Any advice would be great!

    I haven't heard of either but I highly suggest using azazie.com! They've been great to work with and are very reasonably priced

    You could try jjshouse! They do have mixed reviews but we used them for my friend's wedding and had no issues. They also have a lot of color choices.

    Have you tried Union Station? These are rental dresses $50 and they send you 2 dresses instead of 1 kinda of like a backup dress in case one don’t fit

    I ordered bridesmaid dresses for my girls from colorsbridesmaid.com. Before ordering dresses, I purchased similar color swatches (they have too many similar colors and you can let their customer service staff recommend you) and chose the most satisfied color. So the color had no problem. I made all my girls' dresses custom made. They fitted them well except one, a little bit loose on the bust. Have had it tailored locally. Generally satisfied.

    Good luck to you!

    You can tell just by reading them that most of the positive reviews for colorsbridesmaid.com are fake. They use the same broken English the website uses.

    I am having a similar problem, I'm looking for bridesmaid dresses of different styles in orange. It is very hard find orange, not coral, orange. Colors bridesmaid seems to have it and they were very efficient with sending the swatches. I do think it's the same company as uwdress in disguise, but I think they have turned over a new leaf because they were very professional.

    I also tried azazie and they too didn't have my shade, their styles are also flowier than what I was looking for. I agree that JJs House is a good alternative because they've been around awhile and have a lot of colors and styles. There is a great store called cocomelody that I highly recommend, great prices, reputable and lots of colors, and the dresses have good quality. Unfortunately i was unable to find my orange there too, but Katherine it would be a great site for you to look for your green.

    Close up dressColorsbridesmaid.com vs Uwdress.com 3

    I ordered from Colorsbridesmaid.com and so far the experience has been great. I strongly recommend ordering swatches because the colors aren't true on screen. After I ordered swatches, they asked if I would like to buy a trial dress and if I didn't like it, they would refund me. They also offered 10% off for each bridesmaid (they give you a special code for this). They also give you a special code that identifies your bridal party so all of your dresses are cut from the same bolts of fabric (that is too make sure you don't get weird mismatched colors). We ordered a dress in 'Sea Fog', which looks really grey on their website but is actually a beautiful shade of muted purple. The dress arrived within 2-3 weeks and was totally, absolutely 100% gorgeous and well made. It was double lined, the color was gorgeous, the stitching was high quality and it had a built in bra with boning. It was wrinkled because it comes in a bag, but the fabric is nice and soft. Flower Girl dress from Lightinthebox.comColorsbridesmaid.com vs Uwdress.com 4I brought it to my MOH to try on and it was *almost* perfect- But the bust/built in bra was too big. Really, I'm sure this was because of the measurements we gave and not the company's fault (turns out she wore a bra and a jacket when she measured... face-palm) . I e-mailed them and they advised to shorten the straps and let them know if it didn't work out so they could replace the dress. We did that, but the cups are still too big. I just e-mailed them again to replace the dress, which I don't anticipate any issue with- If there is one I'll definitely update my review.

    I just wanted to hop on here to tell my fellow budget brides that you totally can trust this website. The dresses are beautiful and the customer service so far has been very good. They always respond to my questions by the next day and seem eager to make sure I'm happy. Before I ordered from them I scoured the internet for reviews but everything looked fake (in fact, I'm still sure they're fake)- So I wanted to review as a public service. I promise I am a living, breathing person, I am not paid to say this.

    Also- I bought my flower girl dress from Lightinthebox.com and it is GORGEOUS. I included a picture that is in the middle of my review for some reason. I also highly recommend that site (though the orders take a lot longer). I made a Youtube box opening review for that dress if you want to check it out

    @Shanna Have ever noticed the site before and also thought the reviews looked fake. Checked their recent reviews at sitejabber and trustpilot. It seemed normal. It has both positive and negative reviews. They make positive responses to the negative reviews. That is good. Thank @colleen share your shopping experience here. I will order a bridesmaid dress as a try-out and share my experience to help more.

    Hi Ginger!

    It sounds like I am looking for exactly the same thing as you were - bright orange! Can I ask where you ended up getting yours from? It's quite the feat!... Thanks so much!

    Hi Caroline, it's great to meet a fellow orange girl! Yes finding bridesmaid dresses in orange was probably one of the top 3 hardest things i did for my entire wedding! Ultimately I'm sad to say I didn't find the exact shade of orange I was looking for, so i went with David's Bridal, they had a persimmon color which is actually more of a reddish orange but very pretty. However, for a true orange the closest i think was colorsbridesmaid, they had three really nice shades of orange and the customer service was actually quite good. Another alternative is a company called hebeos.com, decent shades of orange from the swatches i ordered and also surprisingly good customer service. Best of luck my orange sister!

    Hi colleen

    The picture of the dress you have posted above looks like one of the colours I am looking for what was the name of the colour please. I have been looking at bridal rose.
    Thanks Leanne

    Hi katharine

    I was just woundering if you ended up buying the moss green colour dresses from colourbridemaid.com and if so was they like the colour shown above. I am looking around for this colour and just like you it seems that I am struggling with this.
    Pic would be great if you have one
    Thanks Leanne

    Oh wow thank you Colleen for this loaded review! It’s so hard to shop online for these kind of things so many websites can’t be sure they’re trustworthy. I have been looking at colorsbridesmaid and they affordable and have a lot of variety. Thanx again this really helped me out!
