WARNING… DO NOT ORDER from ElegantlyEngraved.com!!!

Recommended Posts

I ordered a personalized Guest Signature Picture Frame w/ Engraveable Photo Mat from this "company" Elegantly Engraved on 3/6/10 for my 4/25/2010 wedding. I started to get a little worried when I had not received my order or gotten an order update 2-1/2 weeks later. Luckily, I had printed out my order receipt that showed proof of my purchase since I never got an order confirmation email from them.

 

I tried calling the phone number on their website, which is not in service (which is now gone from their site by the way). I tried using their on-line chat, but there was never anyone available. I also left a message through their “contact us†link on the website. Still no response. The charge on my credit card statement shows the charge was made by “Elegant Keepsakes". I called the number that was shown on my credit card statement for this company and that number is, of course, not in service.

 

I called my credit card company and they told me I could not file a dispute on the charge until 30 days after I placed my order. So, I decided to do some research in the meantime and find out if Elegant Keepsakes was somehow associated with Elegantly Engraved.

 

Now, Elegant Keepsakes IS a legitimate company and they are a supplier for WeddingStar. I sent an email through the Elegant Keepsakes website letting them know my situation and if they were associated with a company called Elegantly Engraved. A representative from WeddingStar contacted me via email the next day. They looked into the issue for me, but had the same contact number that I had. They told me that this company/person used to place orders with them, but stopped for some unknown reason; they would not give me a personâ€s name associated with this “company†though. The WeddingStar rep advised that I go ahead and dispute the charge with my credit card company since they were having no success getting in touch with anyone from this company either after several days of trying. WeddingStar offered to sell me a similar signature frame at the price that Elegantly Engraved had quoted me (which was $20 less than the WeddingStar price) and would ship it to me FedEx Air at no charge; I decided to take that offer. I talked to the WeddingStar rep over the phone again today and she gave me my FedEx Tracking number. I should receive my frame from WeddingStar by Friday, in time for my wedding. WeddingStar was extremely helpful.

 

I will be calling my credit card company tomorrow to file a dispute against the charges for the frame I never received since 30 days has finally passed. When I first started looking into Elegantly Engraved, I could not find out any info on the web about them. When I did a google search today, there are several complaints, similar to mine on the web Complaints Board | elegantlyengraved.com.

 

I've learned a huge lesson about on-line ordering. I will always search for reviews on a company before I order from them. I never even thought to check the “contact us†page to see how I would contact them if I had issues. I wonâ€t just order from a company because their prices are cheaper than the rest without looking into “why†first. For the most part, I try to use PayPal when ordering from the web if they offer it. I RARELY use my debit card to place online orders.

Wow that is terrible! Thankfully you'll get your frame for the same price and will eventually be reimbursed through your cc company.

 

Thank you for sharing this story with us! The only way to find out about these 'companies' is word of mouth most of the time.

So sorry this has happened. I went to the website just to check it out and it says: Now under new management. Eeerrr. That sucks that this happened. I hope your CC company will fix the problem.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
