Inconsistent with the picture
on April 20, 2013
The item in the picture may very well be nice, but if you're planning to use this for a wedding, let's just say it's a real pain when a company ships an incorrect item. It was obviously convincing enough that my folks didn't notice, but when my wife and I got into town, we noticed it looked very ugly with hooks and locks sticking out and poorly aligned. The finish was off-white with bits of rust and grit visible. There was no leaf motif. It might look nice and handmade in a country garden but not a wedding reception.
I searched the item number on their website, and this is what they sent:
I hate judging a product for something like this, but in the case of weddings, the vendor can be as important as the product. It's clear that at the sole shipper there's no one crossing their t's and dotting their i's. There were two labels on the box that say different product types, and what we received wasn't even the same shape. I'm not even sure envelopes would fit in it without folding them in half. Anyway, we didn't have time to get it replaced, and so we had to spend part of the week before our wedding looking around for a nice birdcage instead of focusing on all of our other responsibilities. As a point of advice for your wedding, tons of vendors are great, so don't bother dealing with ones that are inconsistent.
