For men primarily interested in meeting women from Russia, CharmingBrides.com is a fit. Although it does not offer the level of service that its competition offers, it provides men the resources to foster relationships with Russian women.
Based in Kharkov, Ukraine, CharmingBrides.com provides introduction and touring services for American men who want to meet beautiful Russian women. Aside from tours, CharmingBrides.com offers features like professional photography and videos, live chat, English lessons for the Russian women, and even a gift service.
Although its website is difficult to navigate at times and its pricing structure is confusing and unclear at first, CharmingBrides.com offers a legitimate service to men who are looking to find the love of life in beautiful Russia.
CharmingBrides.com also provides correspondence services through which you can communicate with a Russian woman of your choice, even if you speak different languages. Their service will quickly and efficiently deliver the messages back and forth while keeping your contact information private. They will translate the letters for you both coming and going so you will have no problem there.
CharmingBrides.com can also provide you and your love interest with professional photography and video. If you would like to see your new friend's smile in a photograph or in a video, you can pay CharmingBrides.com to professionally create that for you. Pay CharmingBrides.com and they will professionally photograph a Russian woman you've been communicating with, as long as it has been discussed and approved with her, and send the photos to you. For under thirty dollars, you can pay to have your new Russian friend taped in a high-quality, 60 second video and sent to you. This way, you will have more than just a photograph to look at while you are corresponding. Also, if she is interested in seeing you, pay CharmingBrides.com a fee and you can upload up to two minutes of video of yourself for her to watch and enjoy. This is the only truly unique service we have noticed at CharmingBrides.com.
You can utilize the CharmingBrides.com "Long-term individual matchmaker service" for a more specific experience. First you will fill out two forms: one about yourself and one about the person you are looking for. Once you have sent in these forms, you can sit back and wait. The forms and information, as well as your photographs, will be printed in the Kharkov office. The girls visit the office on a daily basis and will be shown your printed information and photographs. You will be notified of who is interested and you can move forward with communication from there. This process can save you money and time in the long run, but won't provide you with as many choices as simply browsing the available profiles will.
The tours provided by CharmingBrides.com are all-inclusive except for airfare. They are reasonably priced and visit unique locations like Brazil and Jamaica. One great feature is the ability to create your own personal tour to a country of your choice. They provide you a form to fill out including destination, date, and services required. You can pay to have translation services, transportation, and even to rent cell phones. For a seven day tour to Kharkov with five introductions (individually billed) and 6 hours of translation services each day, they will charge you 809 euros. To find the price of your own unique trip, simply visit their website and choose personal tours.
A trial membership at CharmingBrides.com costs 15 euros, a basic membership costs 30 euros, an advanced membership costs 50 euros, a silver membership costs 80 euros, and a gold membership costs 150 euros. Sending a letter with a trial membership will cost 3.5 euros while sending a letter with a gold membership will cost 3 euros. Again, you will have to pay for each service individually.
CharmingBrides.com is based in Russia and it is obvious. First of all, the prices they display are mainly shown in Euros, even though most of the men paying for the site are from the United States. The women who join the site do so for free, so why would they continue to post prices in Euros? Only some of their prices also showed U.S. currency.
The website and the features it attempts to advertise are confusing. They do not present a clear layout of the membership options, what is included, and what you must continue paying for. Once you look through the details, you will realize that paying for a membership doesn't actually get you anything. You still need to pay a certain amount each time you send or open a letter, no matter what membership level you choose.
