Wedding Dress Nightmare

Hey ya'll. So this is my first post on here and it's not even for my wedding! My best friend is getting married next month and I'm one of her bridesmaids. She ordered her dream dress from a website and was under the impression that it'd be delivered soon. She got a phone call today that the woman who was going to make her dress had quit and that she hadn't even started the dress yet. They basically said "Too bad so sad, go to David's Bridal". My friend (as you can imagine) is crushed.

Have any of you ordered a gown online and had success? We are trying desparately to find her the gown she wants but so far I've had no luck. This is the dress she ordered: http://www.dressestime.com/stunning-cathedral-taffeta-wedding-dress-bridal-gown-with-appliques.html#FAQ

Thanks in advance for any help you ladies can offer.

    Yikes, that really sucks. With her wedding being next month, I wouldn't risk buying anything online, honestly. If she doesn't have any other choice, try eBay, but *make sure* you research the seller and know that they are reputable.

    That sucks! Maybe see if any stores in your area are having an "off-the-rack" sale. That's how I got my dress and brought it home the same day. Wicked deal too Smiley smile

    I agree with what others have said. She shouldn't order anything online. She needs to find a store and order off the rack. Or find a quick sewing local seamstress that is willing to make the dress she wants.

    If you plan on sticking around here and posting more often, please change your picture so we can better recognize you.

    Why do people make super important purchases without doing ANY research?

    http://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/www.dresstimes.com

    one google search, top result. it took 2 seconds to realize that this company is sketchy at best.

    do.not.buy.wedding.dreses.ONLINE.

    go to a store, find one off the rack, and cross your fingers.

    Brides by Demetrios has similar looking dresses (not the same but definitely in the same wheelhouse) but I'm not sure if any of their locations are near you or close enough that your friend would be willing to travel to:

    Thanks ladies.

    M- I understand where you're coming from, I do the same thing but unfortunately she did not. She's not a very girly girl and she's the first in our group to get married so she didn't get to benefit from our experiences. I honestly didn't know she'd ordered it online. I really feel awful for her.
