When it comes to planning your wedding day, finding the perfect dress is a top priority. But with so many options on the market, choosing the right gown can feel overwhelming. A huge bulk of the expenses at the wedding comes from the wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, and tailoring/ customisation as well!
Furthermore, wedding dress shopping is a tiring process, with multiple trips, try-ons, and sometimes you get roped in to scammy packages that the bridal studios force upon you.
It’s a huge fat no from me!
Enter AW Bridal, a bridal dress company from Nevada, USA.
This company was founded in 2011 with the goal of ‘Creating Happiness for Brides and Bridesmaids, and all our customers‘. Sounds like a lofty one, but they are doing exactly just that!
I was thrilled to get my hands on one of their stunning designs and put it to the test. In this review, we’ll take a closer look at one of AW Bridal’s wedding gowns, sharing our thoughts on its style, quality, and overall value.
Whether you’re in the midst of your own wedding planning or simply love admiring gorgeous gowns, keep reading for our full review (and a cheeky little discount at the end of this post!).
Crafted from exquisite organza, this A-line floor-length gown resembles a garden of red roses, with sheer straps and a fitted bodice that features a sweetheart neckline and built-in bra for a seamless fit.
What I love in particular is the floral details are not limited to the organza layer, with 3D florals blooming across the full length of the gown. The attention to detail is evident in the precision of the stitching and the overall finish of the dress! From the moment you put it on, you’ll feel like a beautiful princess.
The romantic, airy feel of this makes it the perfect choice for a fairy tale or garden-themed wedding!
The inner lining is beige/ skin-coloured, so the dress looks super floaty and airy. Just a note that when posing for pics and you want to do a lil twirl, the inner lining won’t “flow” with the top organza layer.
I opted for the standard sizing of this dress, in a Size 0. This piece is a bit more forgiving in terms of fit due to the inner lining and organza layer having more allowance and stretch. If you aren’t sure about your size, I recommend opting for a custom sizing (it’s totally free!) to guarantee the best fit for your body.
I love that the cups of the dress are actually structured and molded properly, so it still sits nicely on small-boobed girlies like me. I often struggle to fill out soft cups at the top as I don’t have much volume, so the cups often fall flat or fold over which is a fashion disaster LOL!
Organza pieces can be quite scratchy, but this wasn’t itchy or irritating on my skin as it was fully lined.
The bustier area is padded well, with enough space for your boobs. You can also customise a larger cup with their custom fit service!
The corset details are not made up of stiff fishboning, so it’s very comfortable. The corset area is definitely still structured and not flimsy!
In terms of value, I feel that this dress is an excellent investment. The dress is priced $119.99, which is well under the price of a typical wedding dress ($1.5-5k). Plus, shipping is $9 for regular shipping and $19 for express shipping?? What a steal!
I think for the price and factoring in the workmanship and beautiful details on this piece, this is really an excellent quality for the price. The beautiful design and attention to detail make it a standout choice for any bride looking for a unique and stunning gown.
Depending on the style of dress you order too, it can definitely still be used on other occasions. I love to be ✨extra✨ with my cottagecore content, so this beautiful gown is definitely coming out with me on a picnic date (or as often as I can)! It’s too pretty to gather dust in my closet!
Plus, the free customisation offered by AW Bridal ensures that the dress fits perfectly, without the need for additional alterations that usually adds to the cost. Each dress is made-to-order by their tailors, taking up to 7 business days. The turnaround time is the same, whether you order a standard size dress or a made-to-measure custom.
Take note that made-to-measure dresses cannot be returned!
Benefits of Shopping at AW Bridal:
One of the best things about shopping for your dream wedding dress at AW Bridal is the ease and convenience of their online store.
The website is easy to navigate, with a clean and modern design that makes it simple to find what you’re looking for. I personally find it so tiring to shop physically and try on items one by one.
You can easily search for dresses by category, such as ballgowns or mermaid dresses, or by theme, such as beach or bohemian.
The filter feature allows you to refine your search results by size, color, price, and more, making it easy to find dresses that fit your specific needs and preferences.
If you have any questions or concerns about sizing, their customer service team is always super helpful and responds really quickly! They also have virtual appointments for you to discuss sizing, design, and get advice before you commit to an order.
Plus, their free customisation service allows you to tailor your dress to your exact measurements and preferences, ensuring a perfect fit and maximum comfort on your big day.
Once you’ve found your dream dress, the ordering process is also straightforward and hassle-free. AW Bridal accepts a variety of payment options, including major credit cards and PayPal.
You can input guidelines/ time frame for your big day to ensure they can accommodate your schedule. I would still recommend ordering a few months in advance, even if they have a fast turnaround.
