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!

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.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
