Loveliest Cake Set
I've bought a lot of things for my wedding from BHLDN. (My dress, shoes, garter, and a lot of my decorations).
From these experiences I've concluded you never really know what you're going to get, (which is SUCH a shame, because I absolutely love what they have to offer). So for example, it could be the most amazingly beautiful, and well made item you've ever laid your hands on (my wedding dress) or something that looks like its been tried on by 1000 people and then repeatedly thrown down some stairs (my wedding shoes).
In this instance, I'm once again really disappointed with the poor finish of this set. The blade of the server is a bit off centre, and theres a blob of uneven ceramic on the underside. The knife also has a black mark underneath the surface of the glaze.
It really wasn't worth the money, and to be honest, being an international customer (and after the experience of returning my shoes for exchange), it's really not worth the bother of sending it back.
All I would say is, when you order from BHLDN it's a gamble. The quality control is hit and miss.
If you're an international customer paying a premium for shipping and import charges, I would exercise caution and prepare yourself for this.
As many brides will know, the last thing you want when you're preparing for your wedding is the bother of having to complain about things and returning them, and I really wish BHLDN would tighten up this area of their business, because at the moment I wouldn't recommend them.
