Due to time and budget constraints, I decided to take a risk and order my wedding dress online. My first experience unfortunately did not turn out well. The quality of the workmanship was a bit sloppy and I ended up returning it.
Even with this experience, I decided to order this taffeta dress from LightintheBox. The website gives a very professional feel and the reviews were excellent in showing how the dress looked on people who bought it. I decided to give it a shot and order online again.
The dress came in a very timely manner. The dress is so beautiful!! The quality of the dress is definitely very high, fitting for a wedding dress. I ordered it in ivory and "customized" (more or less a size 4) and it fits wonderfully. I'm 5'4" and am not planning on wearing heals so they made the dress shorter. I'm excited I don't need to tailor it :) The beadwork is beautiful, it is actually a sun pattern which I didn't realize from the pictures.
For the high quality, price and helpful customer service, I would definitely recommend ordering from Lightinthebox! For those hesitant about ordering online, I would suggest finding styles that you like online and trying similar ones at a store to get a feel for how it looks on you. After you figure out what you like (and what looks good for your figure), then order online.
I was searching and reading reviews for a month before I ordered this dress and I promised myself I write a review as well, to help you make the right decision.
1. Package arrived a lot earlier than I expected (I was able to follow it step by step)
2. There was no customs fee :)
3. Packaging is pro!
4. The dress is simply beautiful, very well made and surprisingly light.
I'm somewhere between size 10-12, I ordered size 10 because of Marie's review (thanks a million!!) and I can't take it to a tailor here. I rather loose weight if necessary.
I am really happy with my dress, the quality is perfect, It is just exactly like the photo. All the little stones are like pearls and the littles flowers you see are silver spangles.
I order a 8 size, IVORY, it looks white, shiny, and the length is perfect, I have to take to fix a little because I want to wear it complete fitted.
The fabric is excellent, the only thing that I do not like is the fact that I have to pay around 100 dlls. extra, about taxes.
At the begging I was no sure to order my wedding dress in a website, but I am so sure that it was the best option, in my country the prices were so high, so I decide expend less money and jumped in to the adventure of order it LIB.
The delivery time was exactly.
I have to say that it is perfect, I will take some more Photos.
The wedding day arrived and there are some pictures:
Hello girls, I just wanted to write a review about this dress, I bought it beginning of april and it arrived in 10 days!!!! (incredible) I took a 6 size although could take a 4 one but didnt want to risk as according to the measurments I am a 6 size, anyway I had to modify it on the hips as it was too large. It is a very comfortable dress the only thing is that the train can not be picked-up.
Hi there. Which colour did you order please?

I recently got married in Bali with this beautiful dress, I was a bit worried about purchasing a dress online as I had already purchased another dress which was very poor quality from a different company, when my dress from LITB arrived it was amazing. It is everything in the picture!! I highly recommend this website :)
I did turn the neckline into a sweethart which made it even more beautiful, i did order a size too big just to make sure it would fit and was able to get it altered. I also had a bussle put in so the train could be put up during the reception
Hi there Alyse... could you please tell me if the lace-ups at the back are quite strong in your experience (i.e could they be pulled to give a tighter fit?) Also, did the dress feel heavy and warm for your wedding abroad? I'm planning on marrying in Hawaii and unsure if this will be too heavy for the climate? Thank you!

Yep could def be pulled in nice and tight to feel tighter... i actually didnt plan on wearing a bra with it but then tried it on with a strapless bra and it felt more secure and comfortable
The dress wasnt heavy at all.. i did wear a hoop underneath so that made it easier to walk and also not as hot as I didnt have the material sticking to my legs
Hope that helps, let me know if there is anything I can help with :)

The sweethart you made with it is so beautiful! Hope i Can find a dressmaker to do the same...( in France...!) May i ask you which size you ordered? Thank you!

I am so in love with this dress. This picture is the dress straight out of the box, it fit perfectly I'll need it hemmed because I'm short but that's it. The price was a great deal too, I was a little worried about ordering a wedding dress from overseas but Light In The Box definitely delivered.
By the way, this dress looks great without the petticoat since the material has a certain rigidity to it (while still being flowy). And here is another pic for you of its side! ;)
I promised myself I would write a comment to help out other brides-to-be as soon as I received my order. I remember how much I appreciated reading the other girls comments when I was surfing through the net in order to find the safest site on which I could do my wedding's shopping. This is my first experience ordering anything online... And of course, I had to start with my wedding dress!
Overall, I must say I have been more than pleased with my experience as a LITB client. My order included this beautiful dress, the recommanded veil and petticoat, as well as a pair of gloves and a cute purse. My order was a few days delayed, so I quickly wrote a message to LITB through their link "Ask about import tariffs", which is their customer service after a purchase. Within 24 hours, someone had already written back, apologizing for the delay and offering me to either cancel my order with a total refund or to continue with the order with a partial refund of 30% on the dress. Since the delay was not dramatic, I accepted the second offer although I was still nervous about the whole thing. I finally did receive my order, only 4 days later than the date initially expected even though I live in Canada! And they kept their words, I got my 30 % refund.
Opening the box was a very exciting moment - everything was very well folded and wrapped in individual bags, even the petticoat! The dress is amazing, I am mostly impressed by the quality of the material (taffeta), its inner lining, and even the metal ribs. The train is gorgeous, as well as the back, I love my dress! The only thing I did not expect was the details made out of sequins... I had in mind these would be pearls, however they are placed together to form small delicate flowers and they actually look very nice on the dress.
Finally, I recommand that you go try out dresses in boutiques before ordering online, simply because it will give you a better idea of your size and the style that suits you best. That is what I did, and I knew I would be somewhere between a size 10 and 12. Unfortunately, LITB does not seem to make this dress in custom size anymore, so I ordered a size 12 which was actually a little bit too large for me at the hips, but I will get it tailored. On the pictures, you see the dress the day I received it, so I did not change anything on it.
If you choose to order through LITB, I really hope your experience will be as positive as mine was!
I've posted before but have to post pics! The dress can also be bussled. Take it in to your local tailor and put in just one bussle. Worked perfectly and stayed in!
