Ballerina I am so thrilled that you are happy with your dress. Lolita: poly satin is what you wanted right? So glad responses to Gianinar are heading back in a positive direction again.

I just dont want it to be stiff, it's a flowy dress, but im scared to order it from them, i just dont want to order it, get it and hate it. I've had such bad luck finding a dress. This is the dress i want made.

I would just take it to a dry cleaner--that's the safest way. You could get a home dry cleaning kit and just be very careful. The dry cleaner can also "preserve" it for you. You can wrap it in acid free tissue and store it in an air tight container.

Hello Ladies! I found this thread after looking at lightinthebox.com for a dress. They have a great selection but, I haven't seen much of the dresses IRL. Since all the great reviews for gianiar bridal, I decided to email them, just to get a quote for some of the dresses they already had on their site. SO CHEAP! I haven't decided what I want yet but, they seem like decent quality. Has anyone gotten the "fabric samples" they advertise? After reading about the poly satin/taffeta being hot and some not shiny and all that; I'm thinking I should check out the fabric first.

Well, I've just ordered this Jim Hjelm 8800 knockoff from an eBay seller yesterday, and I'm already experiencing all kinds of anxiety! sad.gif

What if it won't fit? What if it'll turn out ugly? What if the fabric will look super shiny?

 

This seller is Cloudshow on eBay, and has 100% positive feedback, so that helps alleviate my fear somewhat, but I'm still so worried. I'll keep you guys updated.

I'm already looking into how to file a complaint with PayPal, for just in case. Lol.

Hi Mimi83, love the dress!... and just had to say that I also ordered a Jim Hjelm dress knockoff (8801) from Ebay. I thought it was kinda funny that our login names are so similar and that we have both picked the same designer :)
Good luck on everything, I am sure it will be fine, but I do agree, it is super stressful!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
