My Dress/BM Dress

Hey Ya'll.. Happy Tuesday..

Okay so I know we have had discussions on here before about Pearls place.. Ive been talking to Tracey and she has helped me alot about making the decision to order from there, definitely more affordable... but I was wondering how many of you have ordered your dress from there, and if so did you just find a separate seamstress to do the alterations, etc.. and then how many ppl ordered your bm dress from there? what is your experience?

  • I didn't order my dress from there but I did order my BM dresses from there. It was $65 cheaper. They had their own seamstresses do the alterations.

  • my bestie got her gown from pearls - she was married in '99.  awesome experience, great staff to deal with, good communication.  she worked with somebody who consulted her on measurements etc so there were no alterations to do but an overall savings of nearly $1000.  I'd highly recommend based on the experience she had.   are you nearby key, can you go in person? i
  • Never heard of Pearls place, is that a discount bridal store?

    </div><div>I have not used them as of yet, but I am doing the same thing starting Jan 15th. I have been talking to the Pearls about the orders and they are cheaper overall. Plus, the choice to ship all the dresses in one box for $20 is steal of a deal! I will pass out the dresses and they will get them altered where they live.

  • Im missing out...Whats this pearls place. I gotta dresses for cheap..like how cheap..give me an example please.
  • I ordered my bridesmaids dresses and my mom's dresses from there. The BM dress at the bridal store for 245 and at Pearl's Place it was 130. My mom's dress was close to 500 and she got it for 260 from Pearl's place. Everyone went to a local alterations place for alterations. They didn't carry my wedding gown otherwise I would have purchased it from them.

     

  • I will be getting mine from Pearls or House of Brides.com whichever is cheaper by the time they get ready to buy...I've heard great things about Pearls and the service is what's most important to me....

  • I live not too far from Pearls and that is the vendor I chose initially...until one of my BM's found the dress cheaper in Houston so they got their dresses there. They are awesome to work with and sometimes they can be a little attitudinal at times though...but overall they are awesome!
