My family was very particular on chopsticks quality. Was very pleased East Meets Dress had an option to order a sample for $10 to see examples of different chopsticks and sheaths. These are exactly what we were looking for - wedding favors that have personal meeting that won't break in transit and take up little room in guests luggage if they're traveling. Can't wait to hand them out at our wedding!
My Bespoke dress is absolutely gorgeous and has exceeded my expectations. However, it is a little big and I thought the measurements I sent in were a bit smaller than the actual measurement. I can always get it altered but it's difficult to get alterations for a dress with multiple layers. All in all, I do love the dress
I ordered the dress on 7/7 and received it earlier than expected on 7/23. It is such beautiful material that feels substantial and stretches slightly to hug. Furthermore, I had questions about sizing and the customer service is above and beyond with their promptness. Maybe this will be helpful, I am 5'4" with measurements 37.5" X 29.5" X 40.5" and ordered a 2XL. It is slightly big in the waist and hits right at my ankles, which are both to be expected. Also, I ordered the accompanying tie for my fiancé and he loves it. Just to let people know that the qipao pattern and tie pattern are different if you were looking for exactly matching patterns. The dress is wine red and gold. The tie is red, gold, and black. Overall, love the dress, love the company, love the mission.
I purchased the hair pieces and they are great quality. I'm very excited to wear them for my wedding.
Got these for my daughter’s wedding as favours. Beautifully made and an excellent gift. I’m sure the guests will love them.
The dress came in perfect condition and fit so well! I wasn’t thinking of getting a qipao for my wedding but changed my mind last minute. I didn’t know the custom dress had to be order weeks ahead (totally my fault) and they directed me to the standard size dresses they had. I was blown away by the material and how pretty it was when it arrived. I can’t wait to wear it for my wedding in August!
The qun kwa is stunning! I am so excited to wear it on my big day! My mom and grandma loves it and the quality of it. Some of the buttons on the sleeves were a little loose and seemed like they were going to fall off so we are going to need to fix those but the embroidery and the material of the dress itself is very good quality. My grandma likes it so much that she is thinking about ordering something from here to wear to my wedding. Sole was very sweet in guiding me to the right size based on my measurements! I am very grateful because it fits great!
Wow! These pins are lovely when you see them in person. Very delicate! They arrived carefully wrapped to avoid any damage. Haven't had the wedding yet but did a try on and already got compliments. I love the fusion of American and Chinese style!
I was a bit concerned at first ordering a standard-sized dress from the US to Australia, two months out before my tea ceremony. I took the risk anyway and did not regret. The EMD team were very helpful - I am in between sizes so I gave the team my measurements and they responded within half a day to my queries. I ordered the Melinda dress received it within a week! The fit was almost perfect - I took the dress to a tailor to get bust and waist taken in a little. The great thing about this dress is the stretchy material so I felt quite comfortable kneeling and moving around wearing it from morning to night; lace details on the dress is stunning. for girls who are pear-shaped and worried that they won’t look good in a qipao, give the Melinda dress a try 😃
I am so incredibly happy with my custom dress! Vivian worked with me on expedited shipping and sizing. My dress came in plenty of time. I took it to my seamstress to have her check it over and see if any adjustments were needed and she said it fit me perfectly. I can’t go wear it this weekend!
Received the Fortune Bangle for my daughter’s wedding. The gold bangle with the Phoenix, Dragon and Double Happiness character will surely compliment her in her Rachel Bespoke Dress during the Chinese tea ceremony.
Thank you. MOB Mary
We will be using them in September for a small wedding in Panama. Am sure everyone will be delighted.
I absolutely love my Dragon’s Gate Heels! They’re so pretty and comfortable. The team at East Meets Dress was so helpful and double checked my size for me and the shoes shipped very quickly. I can’t wait to wear them with my qipao for my wedding rehearsal dinner in a few short months!
This cheongsam came out stunning, and I love that it could be customised. As I had another dress being made, Sole was able to confirm the order and measurements really quickly and have it made and ready to ship out within a month to Australia. Minimal alterations were needed for this to fit perfectly and it was really well made with good quality fabric.
I was looking for a cheongsam-inspired dress as my wedding dress and found EMD after realising I could not find what I wanted in Australia, and due to COVID, I was also unable to get one made in-person overseas. I was initially worried about buying a wedding dress online, but Vivian was so helpful in answering my questions about shipping and customising the neckline.
From there, Sole was so helpful and even double-checked my measurements. The EMD team communicated well throughout the entire process and when it arrived, it was everything I wanted in my dress. It did need some alterations for that perfect fit, but that is to be expected with a cheongsam dress. My seamstress was also really impressed with quality of this dress and the material used.
I was told repeatedly that the dress was really unique, and our photographers loved the jade beads, so if you're looking for a cheongsam twist to the traditional white dress, I highly recommend :)
I purchased the Emma Dress and it was the perfect size for me despite not getting it custom fitted. Shipping was also fast. I received in about 3-4 days. Would highly recommend purchasing your tea ceremony dress from here.
Being Chinese American, I had wanted a Qi Pao since I was a little girl. I am so excited to wear my first Qi Pao for my wedding tea ceremony! Everything about this dress is perfect—the color, the lace detailing, and the fit. I was debating between buying the dress in a standard size or pay extra for custom sizing, and I'm so glad that I went with custom! The dress fits perfectly and I am so excited to wear it in a few months.
Vivian and her team were responsive, creative and helpful at the get-go. I had a specific request for the Emma dress -- no train and slit instead. I also had a very fluid situation which they handled with aplomb. I got my dress in time and am just making minor adjustments to it. Would recommend to anyone looking for a qipao experience! I have found no other comparable company in the US. Looking to get something for my mom for the wedding as well.
East Meets Dress went above and beyond to make and deliver my dress in a timely manner. They promised delivery in 16 weeks, but I received my dress within 1 month! The dress fit perfectly with all the measurements I submitted and looked beautiful. I would highly recommend East Meets Dress if you are interested in modern Qi Paos or cheongsams.
I love my Lea bespoke dress! I asked for customizations for the dress to be unique to my vision and personal style; and it is better than what I imagined! Thank you for making this experience easy and for turning this around so quickly.
Attentive customer care - they personally followed up with me on measurements - great designs, excellent quality construction. I love my dress a lot.
The dress came faster than expected! The measurements were also perfect :) The measurement guide was helpful and the team had a great response rate.
