    Has anyone ordered anything from http://www.landybridal.co/? I read parts of the beginning of this thread from 2009 and I know they mentioned a landy bridal but the web addresses do not work anymore. I was wondering if it was the same Landy Bridal because they had such great reviews back then! Just wondering if anyone has used their services recently.

        I just went to Landy Bridal's website and it says 'Please be advised that www.landybridal.com has been shut down pursuant to a court order of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York issued against the website's prior owner due to its unauthorized usage of trademarks and/or copyright protected imagery in order to sell counterfeit merchandise.'

          I've seen that too. But the website I'm referring to is www.landybridal.co without the 'm' at the end! :)

            the website is without the 'm' in com! Sorry, I should have specified that before!

              @ Brownskingirl. Thanks, I loved it too!

               

              Name of Dress: Allure C185

              Cost: $439, I did go with the designer grade so the total of the dress was $689 including underskirt and express shipping.

The second dress I ordered wasnt made in time, so I had to get a refund (which I did thankfully). The third dress I ordered from babyonline, and was very excited about it. I ordered bridesmaids dresses and they were very nice and well made.

                 

                But they dropped the ball on the most important thing. I needed to have the dress here by the end of february and they didn't tell me anything until I wrote them two weeks before to check and be sure that it was on its way and see picture. They told me they wouldnt be able to make it in time because of new years and the snow storm the factory wasn't working.

                So I was left without a dress for the reception. 

                 

                Thank God I bought a White by Vera Wang on sale from David's bridal as my ceremony option. Ill end up using the same one for both, or use a gorgeous Two by Rosa Clara that my cousin gave to me (she wore for her wedding).

                 

                Im not thrilled about wearing her dress for the reception, even though its a gorgeous $8k dress its not what I would have picked necessarily... But I'm brining it along the wedding cruise as an option in case the first dress gets too dirty during reception (its on a grassy area by the beach).

                 

                One week until wedding so I can't freak out about it now. It is what it is.

                 

                But my recommendation is don't use dh gate unless you want it as a second gown option. Be sure you have a backup.

                 

                oh no!! i'm so sorry to hear about your experience! i know how excited you were ordering your dresses!! :( i hope that everything still turns out great for you! i see that your wedding is just next week, have the greatest time hon!

It did have a bit of a stinky smell to it, almost like vinegar which a bit weird...LOL

                   

                  This is how it arrived...

                   

                   

                  LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

                   

                  The beading was clearly different and of course the quality of the beads they used but everything was well sewn in.  

                  LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

                   

                  It was surprisingly even lined...

                   

                  LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

                   

                  The other thing to keep in mind is sizing. I am typically a size 6 but I ordered it an 8 with the intentions of having it altered here because I rather it be too big then too small and it fit like a glove. I am glad I went a size bigger.

                   

                  This was the original from the designer website....all in all I am very pleased and def would recommend this vendor. For $150 you cant beat it!!

                  So Trivera, guess what? I'm an Allure bride!!!!! I will def be ordering from babyonline

                      Hi girls,

                       

                      So I ended up ordering my dress from dhgate seller bingbridal. I just thought the picture of the final product in the listing looked of better quality. For $215, it shouldn't be too bad.

                       

                      Here's the link. 

                      http://www.dhgate.co...tml#s13-16-null

                       

                      I will keep you girls updated. I figured I'd order early in case I have any dress nightmares.
