Quality of Service:
  • Responsiveness:
  • Professionalism:
  • Value for Cost:
  • Flexibility:
  • It can take a little digging to find what you need (not all sellers list the style # or exact color, for example). But the reward was worth it for me -- a David's bridal dress (which was retailing for $99) on sale for $45! Dress was shipped promptly and in perfect condition. If your bride picks a popular bridesmaid dress style from a major vendor (like David's bridal) DEFINITELY scope out the offerings on BridesmaidTrade before you plunk down way too much money for a dress you'll never wear again.
