    DIY la perfection de A à Z! 👰🏻

    Je suis une mariée gentille mais exigeante... c’est normal on ne se marie qu’une fois. Avec 5 ans d’accumulation de Pinterest des fois on peu si perdre, mais je savais que je voulais un mariage à notre image. En nature et un peu bobo. Je ne trouvais de robe nul part. Aucune avec un coup de cœur. J’ai été jusqu’à Ottawa et Toronto mais rien.
    Je suis tombé par hasard sur DYI (merci Instagram). Je les ai contacté et dès ce moment, c’était plus clair, plus facile.

    Une équipe d’une générosité incroyable, d’un accompagnement impeccable, d’un professionnalisme comme nul part ailleurs (croyez-moi pour en avoir fait beaucoup), et d’un style unique comme ont en rêve! J’AI DIT OUI À DIY!

    Dream It Yourself's reply:

    Merci tellement chère Chloé pour ces doux mots ! Tu sais à quel point on a adoré faire partie de ta belle journée et t'accompagner fut le plus grand des honneurs ! Tu étais MAGNIFIQUE !

    Awful customer service - AVOID

    « They have gorgeous dresses but their customer service is so bad, NEVER shop there ». This is what I told everyone who complimented me on my dress and asked me where it was from.

    Read this part of their sales contract carefully : ‘’If you wish to benefit from services of our seamstresses, please make yourself available on the appointment date which will be proposed to you (appointment from Monday to Friday, from 10h to 18h).’’ This truly means they will propose one option (ex: Tuesday 10 a.m.) and they fully expect you to make yourself available.

    For those who work during business hours, this was 100% inconvenient. My job also requires me to travel Monday to Friday on certain weeks. I was left with no choice but to forego their seamstress services and work with my own seamstress, as DIY’s service was only Monday to Friday, 10am to 6pm. I though (wrong) that since I only had to pick up the dress, I could do it on the weekend.

    Though their boutique is open Saturday 10-8pm and Sunday 1-8pm, make no mistake. These hours are only for selling more dresses, not for giving good customer service to those who already purchased a dress. As they explained, it was “impossible” to pick up the dress other than Monday to Thursday as per the contract I signed.

    Organizing the dress pickup was the most stressful part of planning my wedding. I exchanged dozens of e-mails and numerous voicemails.

    If you have super flexible work hours and can accommodate DIY’s curiously customer-unfriendly policies, than maybe this is a store for you. But if you’re a busy bride-to-be, learn from my mistakes and buy from a store that will lower your stress level, not add to it.

    Dream It Yourself's reply:

    Amanda,
     
    Receiving a wedding dress is the most important moment for our bride and for us. The wedding is getting closer, tailor made dresses always require some touch up to perfectly fit the body and we want the perfection to all our brides. At DIY, we do not see that moment as a simple « pick up » of a dress. It requires times and attention and we want to be fully dedicated to the bride. It is our philosophy to take care of our bride until the end and we make no compromise on this. As you can see in our reviews, our brides appreciate that approach.
     
    Giving the best services to our brides, include making sure our seamstress partners are present during your dress reception appointment. It is not an obligation for us to provide this service; it is an additional option we are very proud to offer. Our seamstress partners are independents (they are not DIY employees, it’s the reasons why you can paid directly the seamstress without fees/shares or additional costs from DIY), we have to adapt to each seamstress's schedules. They have families and personal life we want to respect. Indeed, our partner seamstress do not work on weekends but only during the week from Monday to Friday, from 10am to 6pm.
     
    We fully understand your job is taking you a lot of time. It is exactly why we insist on this topic during you appointment and why it is indicated so clearly on the contract who have signed and accepted. We do not make weekend dress reception.
     
    As you said, we exchanged a lot mails and calls together. We have offered you 9 different appointment options during these exchanges. You have validated a meeting with our seamstress 2 times but, each time, you had to cancel last minute.
     
    We are sincerely sorry that your dress reception did not meet your expectations. You deserve the best for this magic moment. On our side, we think we deserve to explain this situation with more details.
     
    You have good reasons to not recommend our boutique for any future brides who want a boutique where the dress reception is a simple quick “pick up” meeting. We do not offer this option and never will. We are very clear and honest about that.

    We are happy to know if your guest found you gorgeous in your dress. We wish you the best, to you and your family.
     Justine and DIY Team

    The perfect wedding dress

    I visited DREAM IT YOURSELF with my bridesmaids, mother and mother-in-law and from the moment we walked in we had such a wonderful, welcoming experience. It was calm and fun, a completely different experience from other packed, chaotic stores. Lulu was our consultant and had a keen eye for picking out dresses. Every dress I tried on was gorgeous. I finally found the perfect, beautiful dress which made the wedding extra magical.

    Couldn't have dreamt a better experience

    Such an inviting and comfortable space! As someone who was feeling really nervous about going dress shopping, I felt immediately comfortable in Dream It Yourself's space. Justine is very kind and attentive and really listened to what I wanted, and suggested things that I would have never thought of! There was never any pressure to like anything. I ended up finding my dream dress here!!!! :)

    When I went to pick up my dress with two of my bride's maids we were greeted with warm smiles and champagne by the team. Such a lovely energy!!!!

    I would definitely recommend Dream It Yourself to anyone who's looking for a wedding dress as I couldn't have dreamed of a better experience!

    Merci beaucoup Justine et equipe!!!!

    Robe de rêve/ Boutique incroyable

    On tombe en amour avec l’endroit, avec les robes et avec l’équipe chez DIY. Je me considère très chanceuse que mon style de robe que je voulais était disponible à la boutique parce que je voulais absolument acheter chez DIY. Justine m’a fait sentir tout de suite confortable et à tout de suite compris ce que je voulais comme robe. C’était vraiment une expérience incroyable du début à la fin. J’ai tellement aimé le service que mes robes de demoiselles d’honneur viennent également de cette boutique. à chaque fois que je devais m’y rendre pour des essaies j’avais tellement hâte! À la fin, j’ai eu une robe parfaite et eu une expérience extraordinaire!! Merci à l’équipe DIY et merci spécial à Justine vous avez fait de mon expérience une séance magique que toutes les filles rêvent lorsqu'elles cherchent leur robes de mariée! Ma robe était parfaite (mon voile très dramatique aussi) et je ne me suis jamais sentie aussi belle! Merci xxxx

    A dream experience

    Justine, the owner, understood my frustrations and concerns with shopping for a wedding dress that fit my style and body. She was enormously helpful, gracious and fun throughout the whole process! Her dress selection is to die for too, I knew the minute I went through the rack of dresses that there would be my dress in there and sure enough, I found the dress of my dreams, from a Canadian designer at a very reasonable price. Her passion for what she does shines through! What a positive experience to shop at Dreamityourself. Thank you so much Justine et co!
