    I recently found this site when I was searching for a dress for my daughter. The prices look great and with free shipping available I could save a great deal of money!

    Has anyone ordered anything from this site that might be able to help me out? It seems a little too good to be true!

    It is for my daughter who will be 10 when we get married. The cost of the dress on this website is only $79CAD. At the bridal store where I was going to purchase it, it was $237!

      While I haven't ordered anything from Kanacca I am very familiar since they post on ebay. I am having my bridal gown made but from a different seller. I say go for it... I believe they have good feedback. The free shipping is rare!

        I'm not familiar with it, but be sure to let us know how it goes if you end up using them. It would be a great alternative!

          I used Kanacca! I ordered three bridesmaid dresses from Kanaaca in September for my PV wedding. They took 2 months to get here, but I think that was because they knew that my wedding isn't until March, so no rush, right? The communication with them was a little difficult- language barrier as they are based in Shanghai. But, the dresses came in and they are...interesting. ;-)

          All of my girls went and had their measurements done (And Kanaaca wants all kinds of weird measurements that we had never heard of) and I got to pick the color of the dress out of about 60 or more colors they have..So, that part was nice. The dresses, however, are a much thicker material, almost like a heavy curtain material, than I had expected. The dresses look much more flowy and light in the picture.. And all of the girls have to get the dresses tailored. It was actually quite comedic when my bridesmaids were trying them on. We were all rolling with laughter on the floor. One girl had some weird pouch thing in the stomach area of her dress (As if she were pregnant or something)...one girls arm holes were soooo small she could barely get her arms through them...and the other girl had a very weird stitching down the side of her dress that made it look like she had some sort of weird tail or something... Anyways, the dresses were $69 each and the alterations will probably be $50 or so... So, we aren't saving as much as we anticipated in the long run..

          Luckily, my wedding isn't real formal or real big, and my girls don't really care what they wear, so it will be fine. But, I definitely think they either have kids making these clothes, or someone was drunk when making our dresses. ;-)

          I wouldn't say you shouldn't use Kanaaca, because on ebay they have great feedback and lots of women order wedding gowns from them...maybe it was just the dress I picked? I will try to find it and attach a link or something so you can see- it was a very simple, plain design, or so I thought.Click the image to open in full size.

            That is a great story! I'm killing myself laughing over here!

            Lucky for me, I decided I didn't have enough time to fool around with ordering from Shanghai, so I bought the dress at Sears. :)

            I'll see if I can find a pic and post it later. Thanks for sharing you story about the dress, I'm sure there are lots of Bride's out there that will possibly think twice about ordering. The prices are good, but I guess you get what you pay for huh?

            Happy Holidays!

              Ok now I am anxious. I haven't submitted my measurements wasnting to lose a couple more inches. Even though we aren't using the same seller it's generally from teh same area. i hope it turns out ok. That's why I wished they would post a pic of the finished product.

                Well, make sure to leave yourself plenty of time for alterations, in case they are needed. I'm sure it will turn out fine, though. I will keep my fingers crossed for you! ;-)

                    My daugther's wedding dress from Kannacha was beautiful- It came quickly which was about a month. Several friends referred me to them and they too were pleased with the results. The dress did need to be taken in some which we anticipated.
