I honestly think that it is great quality. I definitely think that it hangs nicer than a lot of comparable dresses I tried on in stores ( I did do that as well) It doesn't look cheap, and it doesn't have poor stitching or anything. I've seen clothing in stores that is not as well made, so I'm completely comfortable with the quality of the dress.

I can really only say about this style of dress, though. You might get a different quality with a giant poofy dress with pickups and crinoline or lace or something - but this is really simple. Its just bridal satin with a chiffon overlay, and then the beading.

I saw someone ordered from Peridress. Has it arrived yet? I am really curious about the quality. I LOVE one of the dresses I found on there but I am too nervous to order it until I hear if others have had a good experience.

Her's looked like it was really good quality...
Unfortunatley, I had a bad experience with JINDRESS. The dress I posted a few pages back I requested them to make it. For $150 i thought, what a steal.
I had emailed them the same picture, requesting the neckline to be changed.
I have to say it came super quick (2 weeks) but it didn't even fit and they had given me a laceup when I had asked for a zipper. They said I can send it back, but I would have to pay freight both ways (Maybe about 300) there and back. If only, I had spent the extra $80 with LANDY in the first place!

Woops, also forgot to mentioned my requested neckline was not met. It was still straight sad.gif

Ok so for months I have been looking for "the dress". Unfortunately every dress I really like is WAY out of my budget. So i have decided that getting a knockoff dress may be the way to go for me. The designers I like are Mikaella and Alvina Valenta. Do you guys know any knockoff websites that has these designers or would be willing to do custom...also, who do you recommend? It really makes me nervous to trust someone this much, but I am all out of other options!

courtney - You've got good taste girl! It came down to 3 dresses for me and the other two my dress contended with was a Mikaella & Alvina Vallenta!

 

The ONLY knock of Chinese dress site I thought of that has both is Buyer100

BUT I have never been able to find supportive reviews and I myself am too scared to buy from them so sorry if this isn't at all helpful but it's the only website I've found which has the most designer names... good luck!

Lol yeah, good EXPENSIVE taste sad.gif I hate it haha. So you haven't bought your dress yet? I found that website also and I found two dresses I like on there. I posted a comment asking to see pictures of "their" dresses and they haven't gotten back to me yet, so I'm thinking maybe they are no good...or just really busy. Not sure, but let me know if you find any others. I'll keep searching too.

Hey Courtney, I totally recommend Gianinarbridal from ebay. You can email them directly. I got my dress custom made from them and was not expecting good results. In fact, I had a backup dress just in case. But when the dress arrived in the mail, it was amazing! I put it on and went screaming around the house bc it was exactly what I wanted. I think the cost was $200ish including shipping. There was a lot of beading and details that I didn't think they'd be able to do well, but it turned out beautiful. I just sent them a few pictures and they put the dress together for me, then sent me a picture of the final dress. I asked for the bottom to be taken in to give a more mermaid cut... they did that and then mailed it. The whole process took about 2 months.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
