Azazie is an online (only) retailer specializing in custom-made affordable Wedding, Bridesmaid, and formal event dresses.
Why We Love Them: This site is almost too good to be true. Offering tailor-made custom dresses to fit your body measurements EXACTLY, Azazie is a no-brainer when it comes to wedding party dresses. They recently changed their delivery policy from 8 weeks to 3 (is this real life?). What you get for the price is outstanding – the fabric and craftsmanship is high quality, each dress is double lined and comes with a built-in bra. Azazie’s customer service is exceptional and they are willing to go far and beyond to ensure you have a great experience with their company. If something has gone wrong with your measurements it can be quite costly to fix. They are even willing to compensate (up to $75.00 depending on the dress price) for alterations if there are issues with your fit – note: this only applies to custom-fitted orders, not regular sizes.
How it Works: Azazie offers two options for sizing your dress, regular dress sizes and custom made-to-fit. When selecting the custom fit it is important to get your measurements correct. This can be tricky, so it is highly advised that you follow the instructions EXACTLY – use the site’s guide (which includes a video) on how to do this correctly.
Return Policy: If you are unhappy with your dress you may request a refund within 10 days of receiving it and will be reimbursed the dress price minus the shipping costs. Cancel within 72 hours of placing your order for a full refund.
Tips & Tricks: Azazie offers samples to try on in normal (not custom fitted) sizes. They don’t ship samples to Canada due to customs but they will still ship orders there. The prices for samples range $10.00-$25.00 and includes shipping both ways. Since color matching is important, if anyone in your bridal party is wearing a dress from another company the colors may differ slightly. To prevent issues with mismatched colors, you can order a color swatch for $2.00 which will give you a sample of each style of fabric in that color. Azazie has a clearance section with great deals if you can be flexible enough to take what they have at the time (no custom fitting options here). Azazie offers sales on various items throughout the year so if you are early enough you might hold out for one and sign up for their email list.
