I was extremely worried about the dress I ordered from inweddingdress.com after reading some awful reviews. I followed others advice and ordered a dress on the plain side. I ordered BC045. The dress does arrive in a small package crumpled up but was fine once I steamed it with an iron. I was extremely impressed with the satin fabric, it didn’t look cheap at all. There were several things I was not impressed with…. The sweetheart neckline of the dress was crooked. The left side was higher and stuck out in a funny way so much that when I turned sideways, you could see my bra in plain sight. The corset string looked awful, very chunky and ill made which makes for a very clumpy look once laced up. Although I ordered a somewhat plain dress, my dress did have pleats in it. Some of them looked beautiful and were well sewn but the ones across my mid section didn’t lay right causing me to look pregnant from the side. I had to re-stitch some of the pleats because the one little stich they put in didn’t hold. The lining of the dress was also slightly longer than the actual dress. I had been fitted at a bridal store and was told I was a size 10 in bridal sizes. The size 10 I ordered from inweddingdress.com was a little too large, an 8 would’ve fit much better and maybe eliminated the ill looking mid-section pleats.??? To fix the neckline, I folded the top of the neckline down and stitched it. I also added a rhinestone belt that I made. I had a very small destination wedding in Las Vegas so I’m fine with the fact that I ordered a cheap, lower quality dress. Had I had a huge wedding & reception, I would’ve felt uncomfortable about this dress.The dress beautiful in most pics though, except for side view preggo looking ones. I meant to take close up pics for this review but an unexpected ER visit the day of the wedding kind of made me forget to that.
Will firstly i must say i got the dress in good time the fact that am in Africa i was imprest from inweddingdresses on that point, the packaging was very neat i must say, all i can say is that they tried but not the best……find attached photoes for your perusal…..~Michelle
I am writing to discourage anyone from using Inweddingdress.com and have attached some pictures of a dress that cost me over £130 from them. The measurements are not correct, the cut is terrible, the back is longer than the front, and they have attached a hook to the back at the top of the zip, but no eye.
To cut a long story short I have been in an ongoing dispute with them for the past few months and have now had to get paypal involved. This company is selling items under false pretences and using pictures that are not representative of the item you end up getting. I don’t want to go on, i’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. BUYER BEWARE is all i’ll say!!

Ok, so here are some photos. In the first one you can see how the tack stitching is crappy and the rough edges of the fabric comes out when you move in it. The next 3 show how it was cut on an improper bias. The rouching you see before the skirt poofs out is not that. It isn’t supposed to be there. It shows where the dress pulls up because of how the material was cut. As you can see the dress is the proper length because the crinolin hangs to the floor, but again, the bias is off so the dress pulls up about 6 inches. Also, you can’t see in pictures, but the bolt that was used for the train is from a different dye lot than the one used for the rest of the dress. Finally, I ordered the dress in champagne and you can CLEARLY see it is gold. I even looked at the swatch and, although colors look different on the computer, this was nothing like what they showed me. I really hope this helps other brides to be to not make the same mistake. I am on a very strict budget and this mishap presented a great hardship. Good luck.
I bought 2 dresses in Inwedding to Colombia. The quality is normal. Not bad. They are puntual.

I sent you an email about my wedding dress several months ago, and you requested photos….I hadn’t gotten around to taking any, but today I decided to make sure I still fit into my dress, and while I was trying it on, I snapped a couple of pictures. All of the information about the dress coming in an impossibly small package, and fairly wrinkled is true, but the dress appeared unharmed by its trip from China to my doorstep, and being packaged inside out is probably a good idea on the vendor’s part. It fits very well, to the specifications I sent, and the workmanship looks good. The waist band is not as wide or well-defined as in the original, and there aren’t quite as many beads, and the bottom hem is not straight, but rather curves in a half-circle and only on the front of the dress. The beading is fine with me, but I will take the dress to have the hem fixed before my big day. The material is softer than I expected, and feels really nice. The boning in the top of the dress is perfect, and there is a little strap at bust height in the back of the dress to help ensure that it doesn’t slip off of my while I’m dancing.
I’m very happy with my pick, and am presently on a quest for the perfect shoes. Still need to get that hem straightened out though.
