Wanted to warn you all ... I am a bride with a seriously small budget and I wanted my girls to have a dress that looked cute and wouldn't cost them over $100. We picked a super-cute dress from an online retailer, HeleneBridal.com.
They had a lot of good reviews and when I did some Google searching, I didn't see that there were many bad reviews out there. In fact, I don't remember buying any.
The dresses came. They looked pretty different from the dress that we ordered, and ... they didn't fit. One of the busts we ordered was supposed to be 34 inches. It arrived as a 31.5 inch bust. That's just ridiculous.
So now I'm having to battle with them to get some kind of refund. They're just saying, "Oh you measured wrong. Take it to a tailor." Ugh.
So ... don't buy from Helene Bridal. Don't buy a knock-off from a shop in China. It's not worth the hassle and the risk.
