Thank you East Meets Dress!! I ordered a ready to ship Gemma about three weeks out from the wedding date 😱 I’d taken too long to make up my mind. But the team was amazing! They responded right away and shipped it as soon as I placed the order. I actually received it within 3 days. Crazy!
The fit was a little roomier than expected, and could have been worn without alterations. But it was very easy for my tailor to take it in.
For reference I’m 5’4”, soft hourglass and 155lb when I ordered it. I ordered a 2XL which was a little disheartening 😅 but Asian sizing 🤷🏻♀️
The Melinda dress is absolutely stunning. It catches the light beautifully with its reflective gold lace and the fabric has substantial weight so even though the slit is thigh high, it feels totally secure. Modest and traditional, but modern and sexy! Perfect for so many occasions. Sole was able to ship this to me ahead of their normal shipping schedule so I could get this in time, I am very grateful for her excellent service.
First off, I don't normally go for a form fitting dress but wanted to wear something more traditional for my tea ceremony as I have an a-line dress for my white wedding dress. :) This dress is beautiful and I opted for the dragon/phoenix pattern which is perfect!! I decided to go with the gemma dress after trying the sample kit and get it custom made with my measurements. When I received it on time, it fit perfectly and I'm so happy with it!! No further alterations necessary and I can't wait to wear it for my tea ceremony! Also huge thanks to the customer service team for answering all my questions before placing my order. :)
I got this for my fiance to wear for our tea ceremony and overall it's a good quality jacket! Beautiful brocade and I love that it's half brocade and half just red so that it is a bit more understated. The buttons were so easy to work with which is such a plus! The shoulders fit my fiance perfectly but the lower half needs to be taken in a bit. Luckily it can be altered easily! Also, glad that customer service suggested to size up based on the measurements I provided.
Very happy with my dress and customer service was excellent. Shipping was quick. 10/10 would recommend.
I could not have found a more perfect dress for my tea ceremony! My family is Chinese and my husband’s family is Vietnamese, and I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to wear a qipao to honour my Chinese heritage, or an ao dai for my husband’s family. When I came across the Nora Peacock Wedding dress, I knew it would be the perfect dress for the occasion. I was able to pay homage to both cultures with the traditional colours and peacock symbolism, while still being able to maintain my own personality and style.
I also loved the corset back. I’m quite petite and always have trouble finding clothes that fit me. I didn’t have to worry about having to get the dress altered because I was able to adjust it as needed.
I had so many people tell me that the dress was amazing. I could not have been happier! A big thank you to East Meets Dress for helping our community celebrate Asian culture, for breaking stereotypes while still honouring tradition, and for creating the most amazing dresses!
This dress was BEAUTIFUL. Wore it to my elopement and it captured so well. So happy with my purchase. Sole was very helpful with helping me pick a size and it fit perfectly. I was a size L and I am 5'-2" at 125 lbs. I did have it tailored to remove the current white lining and replace it with a thicker nude lining .
I was first attracted to the site by the amount of information they provide without hard selling their products. They even suggest a few other viable places for your shopping experience. I bought two ties and two dragon ties with future ambitions in mind just to get a feel for the customer experience with this company. They came through with flying colours! The wait time was reasonable. The products are high quality and surpass my expectations. I will certainly shop with East Meets Dress again!
I purchased three different items (shoes, hair accessories and a tie), at three different times and all of my items arrived in time, beautifully wrapped and the quality was excellent. East Meets Dress was always attentive and answered all of my questions. For easy shopping and returns, I would recommend East Meets Dress for the busy bride who would like to represent their beautiful Asian heritage.
Attaching a few photos. No photos of the shoes...couldn't wear them this time, will wear at the party next year!
Great product and even better customer service! I love our chopsticks and they are going to be a great party favor.
I am beyond thrilled with my Phoebe dress! I was looking for a wedding qipao that wouldn't bankrupt me, and East Meets Dress is such a great find. The details on the qipao are even more amazing in person than on the site. I got a standard size M (I'm usually a size S/2 and I'm bigger in the hip/glute area) and it fits perfectly. I highly recommend this dress!
I ordered the Sandra dress for my elopement ceremony and overall I am very happy with East Meets Dress. My dress was almost perfect and my only callout was the torso was a little long. I received the dress with plenty of time before my ceremony and I ended up taking it to a local tailor for the small update, East Meets Dress will pay $50 for local tailoring services. Overall, I am very happy I bought my dress with East Meets Dress.
It was really important to me to wear a qun kwa for my wedding because it is a tradition in my family. But of course, it was difficult to find good styles and reasonably-priced ones in the USA. I was fortunate to stumble upon East Meets Dress while browsing online and loved the modern, yet traditional details on the Kate Dress Qun Kwa I ordered. The qun kwa is offered in standard sizes, so I was afraid it wouldn’t fit my petite frame and height. However, the small size jacket fit me perfectly! Additionally, the small size skirt had straps that hung around my shoulders so I was able to alter and adjust the height easily. I am very pleased with my purchase!
I love it! East Meets Dress was very accommodating and was able to meet my needs and quickly ship out this beautiful shirt! Absolutely beautiful!
The dress came a lot earlier than expected. I ordered the custom size dress and it fits me perfectly. I was worried that my belly will show in a qipao, but the cutting of the dress really enhanced my curves and made me look amazing. The fabric is smooth and the entire inside of the dress is lined. I can’t believe how well this is made. I feel so confident in it. I can’t wait to wear it on my big day and to celebrate our culture with my family.
This dress is so beautiful and I’m excited to wear it! I was able to schedule a virtual appointment to see the dresses up close and make a decision, which was very helpful. Thank you!
East Meets Dress is an extraordinary company owned by amazing women. Thank you so much Vivian, Jen, and Sole for going above and beyond to help make my dress come true! I love my dress because of the beautiful fabric and the custom tailoring!
I 100% support small companies that are powered by moral ethics and ownership and EMD truly exemplifies this. EMD assisted me throughout the ordering process from beginning to end. This experience promoted a lot of trust and reassurance that you are in good hands.
I will find reasons to order more from EMD just because it is rare to find great quality service and clear communication -especially being from a different state. Amazing things can happen when we work together!
Thank you EMD team! Love you gals!
Lovely dress and pillows, can't wait to wear and use this on our tea ceremony!
EMD is absolutely amazing. I didn't have enough time to order a custom qipao, so I ordered the "Gemma Dress - Ships Now | Phoenix Qipao" and picked my size. Either way, immediately after I ordered, they sent me a message asking for my custom measurements and also checked with me on timing of shipping. They are so great to work with.
As for the product itself, WOW. My mother couldn't believe how perfect it fit and how great the fabric is. I am so excited to wear this in my modern American/Chinese wedding.
I can't say enough good things about my experience. The entire process was a pleasure - the team was so helpful and responded to my questions very quickly. The dress is as beautiful as the photos and the embroidery is gorgeous! Thank you for making such unique and special products!
Perfect place to get traditional Chinese wedding attire in the states! Their customer service is attentive and their service is quick. The dress and jacket are so pretty. The embroidery is elegant and even the lining has a traditional Chinese pattern on it Definitely would recommend.
