    Me and my hubby were supposed to get married
    in Greece in 2007. Pretty much everyone we
    invited told us they wouldn't be able to
    make it so we decided to postpone the
    wedding.

    I was so set on our wedding date that
    I had a wedding planer, dress.etc. I ordered
    my dress from China via Ebay. Now we've
    made up our minds: We're having a
    Mexico wedding in june 2010..
    I really want a new dress.. the one
    I have is fine. But its been in the closet
    for over 2yrs and I just feel like a want a new one.
    I think we paid 120 inc. shipping so it won't
    feel like a waist of money if I don't use my
    first one.

    I think I'll order my new one from Ebay also, since
    I had a great experience w/ the first one..

    So anyways.. I just wanted to know if anyone else
    on here got/will get their dress from china/ebay?
    If so, what seller did you use? How was your experience?
    Did you get bridesmaids dresses?

    Here's me in my 1st dress..Unfortunately I can't remember the name
    of the seller on Ebay.

      I am getting mine from China but not ebay. Here is a online store that deals direct and has great feedback: Cheap Wedding Gowns, Wedding Dresses, Bridesmaid Dresses, Discount Bridal Gowns-Lilywedding.com

        Ok thank you. I will check it out. Do you know what type of payments they accept?! If I could choose, I'd rather pay w/ paypal that a credit card.

          I have been thinking about getting a dress from China via Ebay. So really..did the dress fit and look like you thought it would?

            I am getting married next May, and was leary about ordering a dress off of Ebay, made in China. BUT, it arrived last week and is gorgeous! I had NO problems whatsoever, and was really impressed and surprised about how fast it arrived! The Ebay vendor I used was called "Monday9" or something like that. I can definately relate to your concerns, but my experience turned out really well.

              I took my own measurements, but I would prob. recommend that you see a seamstress or someone that knows how to do it properly. My dress (with slip) arrived 10 or 14 days after I ordered it and it looked way better than I thought it would, absolutely gorgeous.

              But the more I thought about it I realized I didn't want a long train since we're getting married at a beach.etc. It's SUPER heavy w/ the slip and the train.. I'd be sweating like a pig in that dress.. So I want something different. I think I'll try on a couple of different dresses at Davids Bridal before ordering my next dress.. that way I can figure out what type of dress will look best on my body. I had a baby 6months ago, and I think we'll have another one by the time we get married.. So I'm pretty sure my measurements will be different too compared to when I ordered the first dress.

              But YES I would recomend the dresses on Ebay/China.. and even if you don't like the first pick. You can order 2 more and you'd still pay less than you would've for just one dress from a bridal-shop.

                  There are a lot of threads if you do a search on this subject that you may want to check out.

                  If you had a good experience w/your first vendor or someone on here has had a good experience with one..then give it a shot. You have time if it comes and you are not happy.
