How my dream wedding dress turned out to be a scam
You have hunted high and low for your dream wedding dress. Whether its a vintage dress, bespoke, off the peg, if the price seems too good to be true – then it probably is.
There has been a real increase in brides-to-be buying their dress online. Now I am all for buying most things online from supermarket shopping to books through to clothes. But buying a wedding dress is something I wouldn’t do even though I love and I mean LOVE a bargain.
More and more unscrupulous companies, many in China although registered elsewhere are misleading brides with wonderful pictures of stunning dresses. When they then arrive the dresses are usually nothing like it. The material is usually a poor quality, the colours different and the style itself very different to that in the picture.
My advice – go to a bridal boutique or find a great wedding dress maker but don’t think that you will get a bargain online it might just turn out to be a knock off nightmare!
Take a look at some choice examples it may make you think twice!
