I know this thread hasn't been active in a while, but I wanted to post something about what just happened to us regarding HOB.
My younger sister is getting married in Orlando in October. My older sister and I ordered our dresses separately because I couldn't afford to place my order at the time she did. I knew I'd have to rush mine, and was content with that. My older sister ordered from HOB the beginning of July, got her order confirmation, payment was taken, etc. I placed my order with Dress for Less Bridal, put the rush shipment on it, and it was STILL less money than my sister spent at HOB. The kicker is is: She got an email YESTERDAY from HOB saying "sorry! the dress isn't going to make your event date. Here are some options that will ship quickly though". Seriously?!
So I called up the gentleman that I dealt with (Tony at Dress for Less Bridal www.dressforlessbridal.com) and he made some magical phone calls and was able to super rush my sister's BM dress to have it ready and delivered to her on time!!! I was soooo thankful for his help and caring in our situation. He actually felt genuinely bad for us because he said that he's heard of this happening before from them.
So ladies, just please be careful of dress order timing, and where you order from. Nothing is guaranteed unless it's in your hands! Thank goodness for Tony and his ability to help us out in this situation!!! I told him I wished I had more sisters so I could order more dresses from him in the future! Too bad my DW is over...I guess there's always the Vow Renewal!! YAY!!!
Ok, vent over... :-)

Thank you for posting this. I ordered one dress from houseofbrides.com to first see the quality/color etc before ordering the other 3 dresses I need, but it has not arrived yet. It has been 11 weeks already! I don't think I will have time to order the other 3 dresses from them now, so I will order them from dressforlessbridal.com instead and just pay the rush fee. I don't mind paying the extra fee for rushing it, but I don't think I trust HOB right now. I wish that I new about the dressforlessbridal website before, as it is cheaper that HOB.
Thanks for the info, you saved me big time!

Just wanted to add an update, it in case any new comers come are looking into dress website info. I received the dress from HOB....finally.... and the dress is actually pretty good. I don't think that it is actually made by the brand name it advertises as the quality is a bit off, but it is still pretty good. Regardless I already ordered the other three dresses from dressforlessbridal, so hopefully those dresses will be good too. The customer service from dressforlessbridal is already sooooo much better. Tony the owner calls you to confirm that he got your order and give you a delivery date, and it will definitely be here in time! would definitely recommend dressforlessbridal already!

nikki&ownen, how did your dresses from dressforlessbridal.com turn out? how was the quality and were they knock-offs or the real brand-name dresses? I am thinking of ordering my BM dresses from here but would like to know your complete experience.
