It's not a US company, they are in China. It says this if you go to FAQs and click on 'where are you located?'
I ordered a wedding dress from China. I didn't wear it in the end, but it was nice quality (certainly equal to the mid-range bridal dresses I tried on from labels like Maggie Sottero, Alfred Angelo etc) and I didn't have any problems. I chose a different style and had it made for me in the UK, which was not hugely expensive. There was nothing wrong with the Chinese dress, it just wasn't the right style for me (strapless - doesn't suit me). If you want a dress from China, I can recommend Milly Bridal.
If you want a UK made dress, I used Joanne Fleming in Brighton and her prices are very reasonable. She will design just what you want. I paid £390 for my 50s style dress, but I think her prices have gone up since then - that was 2 years ago. Still not hugely expensive though - and it was silk and fully bespoke.
Love the dress - the original one that is. You're giving your credit card details to a Chinese company that rips off dress designs and you're trusting them to make your wedding dress? Don't assume this is a legit business. At worst you'll get nothing for your money and at best, in my view, a cheap looking knock off - which is all they're advertising anyway.
Go to a shop and buy one off the rack or second hand. You must try it on before you by it.
Me again - I didn't buy a copy dress from China, I had one made to my own spec (as was so hard to find tea length dresses in the UK other than Candy Anthony, who are £££££). Agree that if you love that dress, you should buy the original. Now you know where to find it you can go and try it on!
