I stumbled across Azazie and wondered if they were too good to be true. I've gotten my toes wet with Chinese companies and have heard horror stories from brides who ordered overseas, but I rested easier when I saw that Azazie was based in California. I just want to say that my experience with them was 100% positive and they really are as good as they seem!
I got a deal on free swatches from them, and the swatches arrived in a timely manner. I was a little taken aback by how different the colors looked depending on the type of material they are (I ordered Regency and Grape), so if you have your heart set on one particular color shade, be careful.
My bridesmaids and I also ordered three sample dresses from them (sample dresses=a GREAT program!). They may have taken a few weeks and FedEx delivered them to the wrong houses in both Michigan and upstate New York. This made it so that my bridesmaids got the dresses back to Azazie late, but when we explained everything to the company, they were very kind and understanding and they didn't charge us for the mistake.
We settled on the Phoebe dress in Grape and were VERY satisfied. The cons of the dress are that it isn't as flattering as it COULD be (the way the dress falls, it slightly accentuates the hips) and that the zipper sticks slightly at the waistband, but other than that, we were very happy! We ordered the dresses in custom sizes and they fit my bridesmaids perfectly, even with their varying body shapes! They were really quite lovely.
Of course, we only ordered four dresses and we tried to allow plenty of time. My wedding was in mid June and we ordered the dresses in early March, but they arrived by the end of April! Since large wedding parties are growing in popularity, I suggest making sure that you allow the company plenty of time to process the dresses. I had absolutely no complaints on my end, but we did have a smaller order than some people.
And here's a picture, in case it helps!
