    Gorgeous wedding dress

    I found DIY through an article online and wasn't too sure what to expect when I arrived at the store. When my bridal party, my mom and myself arrived at the boutique we were greeted by Justine (the owner of DIY) who was very friendly. The boutique is located in a loft in old Montreal; the space is welcoming, spacious and bright. DIY has a curated selection of dresses that were all very beautiful and unique. I found the perfect dress and couldn't be any happier with it. The entire process was seamless; from purchasing my dress, to picking it up and getting the alterations done. Justine was responsive by email and accommodating with my trial given that I had to travel to Montreal for it. I would definitely recommend DIY to a friend.

    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.

    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
