They look great! I love the colors and if I had to judge I'd say you got them from some shop on etsy. You did an amazing job!

Hi Perianjay!

 

I was just going through your planning thread and noticed your bridesmaids dresses!  they are so nice.  I am also doing convertible dresses and had decided on the Henkaa dresses.  Just wondering how you found the quality of the dresses.  Is the colour you selected called coral or peach? 

they look so pretty.  I really like the quality of henkaa but I noticed these are a little bit more affordable.  ah, so torn now.

help!

@veryvalero Hey! The price of these dresses are fantastic and I read through the sellers reviews and she has amazing reviews. Also, it's a plus that her dresses are made and shipped from the US as well :)

I'm going to be ordering them in a few weeks if you can wait to hear my review on the quality, but if not, have a look at the seller on Etsy (TheDaintyard) and read the user reviews on the dresses. For the price it's really a no brainer for me... My bridesmaids love the dress and it's a great price point for a dress that is potentially only being worn for one day (and that's the nice thing about these, they can be re-worn in different styles etc)

 

I selected the 'Coral' colour, but there is peach, blush and other shades of pink.

    @perianjay I am getting married next month and want to warn/advise you of my experiences. The wedding coordinating does not get any better. It has been a very frustrating process with long delays with response time and then having to repeat ourselves and resend emails MULTIPLE times. I'm not sure if it is the language barrier, but as a meeting planner myself, I don't feel like I should have to tell a coordinator something 5 times. Also please beware..they say in the contract that you need to book with one source. All of our guests booked through our TA but now we are told we can't receive the room credit because they were booked through different airlines. We booked 75 room nights with them and we're only getting credit for 59 nights. It also seems like you are very in tuned with the "extra" charges. We were sent quotes initially, and then when out invoice was sent out the prices were up to $500 more for the services. They also want to charge $250 for electricity?! We thought it was a joke! We live in a ski town and our electricity bill for the month isn't that high! Make sure you review the invoice because they tried to charge us full price for children as well. Let me know if you have any other questions and good luck!! I hope you have much better customer service than we have received!

    Let me know what you think of the dresses from thedaintyard. I'm thinking of ordering one for my rehearsal dinner dress. I would love to know what you think of the quality when they arrive.  :)

    Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear about your bad experience. I really hope that this isn't the case for my wedding, but I can definitely agree when it comes to the coordinator.. I've not had the best experience so far and her response time for a very simple question is also not great (2-3 weeks). Electricity? Do you have a DJ? I heard a lot of people who got DJs and paid this.. I am not renting a DJ.

    Hi there!  Let me know when the dresses come in!  I have told my BMs about this other option and so if the quality is nice then maybe I'll order them for my BMs too.  How long does shipping take?

     

    Maybe i'll just order a dress for myself for the wedding week and test it out as well! ;)
