Last year when I started shopping for a wedding dress, I saw many beautiful dresses that I liked, but the ones I liked ran $2000 or more by the time the cost of alterations was added in. I did some research online to search for other alternatives and discovered that there were numerous websites where I could order a dress made in China for very cheap prices, but there were horror stories about the dresses that these companies made. Then I found Laila Monroe. I was encouraged when I saw that the company is actually located in Ireland and that there would be someone at the company with whom I could communicate in English. I started communicating with them by email, and was very pleased with their response time and what they had to say. I informed of what kind of dress I wanted and sent them a sketch. They said they could make the dress and sent me an estimate to make it. Their estimate came in at less than half of the cost of the dresses I had been looking at in the shops. Since the dresses are made in China, I was concerned about the quality of the fabric and workmanship, but the reviews online were all excellent. I decided to order the dress, and when it came I was not disappointed. The quality of the fabric and workmanship was excellent; the dress was beautiful. It only needed minor alterations, so I had a top quality custom-made dress for a fraction of the cost of the dresses I had been looking at in the shops. I would absolutely recommend Laila Monroe for any wedding or special occasion dress.
