  1. That's a cool idea! I found some here. Some of them even have stones and metal inlays, and you can get a custom order. Here is another site with wooden wedding rings. This one has some gorgeous rings, and they're actually less expensive than the other sites. This site has metal rings with wooden inlays.
  2. After a search, I found this. Some of the reviews are good, but a couple of them say that it was a nightmare. If there's any question, I'd recommend skipping it and going with a trusted site to avoid any headaches. When I research a site, I type it into my google search bar, and if one of the suggestions is "scam", it generally has a lot of really, really bad reviews. Â Now, for my own question - have any of you ever asked Gianinar to create a choker to match your dress? If you did, how much more did it cost? I'm thinking of requesting a matching lace choker with a space to add three pendants.
  3. Wow, Bree, it looks great! You're all really helping to reassure me (and plenty of others, I'm sure) that we're definitely going to get our money's worth from these people. It looks fantastic.
  4. That's a beautiful dress, jszy10! Let us know how it works out. Has anyone had any experience with liangff1982? She has great reviews, and apparently has her own wedding dress line in China. Her prices are slightly less than Gianinar, too. With our budget, every dollar counts.
  5. Heh... I can't afford high-end dresses. Our combined budget for apparel for the two of us is only $300. I'm 21 and he's 23, so money is tight and we want money left over in our bank accounts without needing to take out a loan. That's why I wanted a custom-made dress from China in the first place - not only can I get exactly what I want (which, so far, I haven't found a single wedding dress even remotely close to what I want), but I can do it within our budget!
  6. I will! He put them within arm's reach of where I usually sit, so I'll probably be checking in on them once awhile... You know, just to see if they're still there. It is great to have them off the list, though - and we only spent a little over half the total ring budget, so we can share that around in other areas.
  7. That looks great, Running Bride! It's good to see that they can do the complicated straps like that. You went through Gianinar, right?
  8. My ring came in the mail today! I don't have a camera, but it looks even better than the pictures. It's delicate and sparkly without being too showy. It's going to be hard not to touch it for over a year! @Sunstarsmoon and Soontobemrsdow: Thanks! That's what I thought when I found it. @jackie_c: That looks amazing! It's so unique and creative.

LOL Here is the photo of the dress, the design is by Kirstie Kelly from her Disney Bridal line - the Ariel style! Perfect for the beach! We'll see how they do with it! Wow, BEAUTIFUL dress! I'll have to look into that line.
  10. We just ordered it today, and I'm so excited! I'd fallen in love with a different one originally, but they ran out before we could think about just buying the size 7 and resizing it to a 6. Pink gold with 12 small diamonds and morganite for the center stone. I love it! My fiance and I both decided on our rings on the same day. I've been after him for two days to order it - I didn't want the site to run out of this one, too. He put up a fuss a bit longer, saying we didn't need to be in a hurry because the wedding isn't for over a year... And when we went to order our rings, there were only 5 size 6s left of mine, and only 3 size 9s left of his!
  11. Okay, thank you. I have a few photos, and I'll try to find someone to draw a more detailed picture before I order. Your dress came out looking beautiful, by the way!

  14. Hello, everyone.. Thank you for posting your experiences with Gianinar! I was skeptical about them after I read so many bad reviews about Weddingo, Peridress, and such, but I'm happy to see that Gianinar is the real thing. Anyway, are there any other eBay sellers that are trusted and inexpensive? I saw a couple people mention Cloudshow, and say that apparently they're a bit quicker. When I order my dress (I have well over a year before my wedding, so it'll be awhile), I'll only have a drawing for reference, so I'm still a little worried.

    Hello, everyone!

    I stumbled across this site last night when I was searching for reviews, and signed up immediately. My name is Eden, and I'm getting married next November in Michigan. It's not exactly a "destination" wedding, but I was hoping to find some helpful tips to save money!
