I wish i had ordered this dress, it came out so beautiful. (Oh... I'm sorry for my poor english, I'm Brazilian).

It took about 3 weeks to get my dress which felt like a lifetime but they have Chinese New Year holiday now so they say it will take about 5 weeks. I would listen to advice they give you because I had an evening dress made by them and asked that they put a split in it, they said they thought it would not hang nice and they were right, now I am having it altered so it does not have the split

Hi Ladies,

You have been a great help in the past, and was again wanting some more advise! I am finding it hard to choose a dress that i "love", and so far have come up with two, that are pretty good. One is floor length and one is tea length. Every time i think that is the one, i change my mind, and think i will get the other one.  I am mainly thinking tea length as it will not get ruined with salt water and sand. Anyway..... i have found two dresses that i like on DHGate with MrChina, and was wondering if anyone had used them before? I was thinking i could order both and have one for the wedding and use the other for our dinner. 

Would love to hear your thoughts.

Many thanks

Hi Beachy,

 I had the same problem as you and ordered 2 dresses as they were so cheap, I also thought 1 might come out better than the other. Now  think I think I have chosen my dress but I  don't know if I want to sell the other dress, keep it in case I change my mind again or wear one to the ceremony and the other to dinner. So I don't think I am any help but I think the tea length one sounds good for the dinner. Also have you tried on dresses in a similar shape and style to the dresses you like at DHgate, this might help you make up your mind

Dear Beachy,

 

As a famous wedding stylist in my country says: unless you are invited for the Oscar's, your wedding is most likely the only chance you will have to wear a big dress with a tail. Don't worry about the sand and salt water, that's the great thing about buying a 200$ dress! Why don't you show us the dress you have in mind?

Thanks for the reply Aussie-2. First of all your dress is amazing, maybe i should go with Babyonline! I live in a very remote area, and can not go and try on any dresses, so sort of going by styles that i like and styles of dresses that i already have. I think because there are sooooo many to choose from it is making it so much harder, and as you said it is so cheap, so that is why i am thinking of getting the two. If i went into a dress shop, i would only have a few to choose from, and that would be it. 

Gracimurano, thanks for the reply. Yeah i know i should not worry about getting it wet, or ruined by the sand, as it is just for the day! I hope i can put links on here... these are the ones i am trying to choose between, so any thoughts would be great! We are having a very casual wedding with about 15 guests, so did not want something to fancy.

I just realized, that I never posted how my knock off dress turned out! So I figure Id post some photos for any brides considering this dress or this seller from dhgate.com

I ordered a knock off version of Maggie Sottero's Destination dress RD1044 (the one with the flower shoulder strap) I ordered through a seller named earlybird, and Im very impressed with the quality of dress! Its a chiffon dress, with a satin lining and the fabric is great and sewing is also very good, I have no complaints on this dress at all!  Here are a few photos, sorry they arent the best, hope they help someone though.

Oh gosh Beachy, I love them all!  I love the look of the 1st, short one...but I might prefer it long personally.  although the short is still super cute! 

I guess if I had to choose one, I'd say the last one is my favorite.  But I think all 4 are great dresses and I'd be happy with any or all ha! :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
