I am in the process of locating a seamstress to do alterations. I just went to a bridal salon and asked if they had any recommendations for people who do alterations. Thats what I would recommend.

You could also take it to any tailor. Some bridal seamstresses tend to be more expensive if you didn't buy the dress there. If you take it to any ol' tailor, however, I would ask them first if they have ever altered a dress like yours (ie- beaded, rouched, etc) This is where it might be worth the extra money to have a bridal seamstress do the job since they are used to working with fine fabrics and beading.

I bought one of my dresses from inweddingdress.com. I was leary at first but when I got it last week, I loved it!!!! First off I didn't know the dresses from China were Knock offs of the designers I just wanted an inexpensive dress. I must say that the quality of the dress is that of a davids bridal dress. I got a satin dress from them and it looks good.

 

Most of the things that we wear and use on a daily basis on made in China anyway so I figured what the heck! I'm not a label whore so it didnt matter to me who made the dress as long as it looked good, its for one day! So to answer the original question, I think it is fine to go with a dress from China! I had a great experience!

Can you describe what you mean by "Davids Bridal Quality". I was kinda hoping to avoid this. I tried on DB dresses and felt like they were poorly made mass produced dresses. (No offense to anybody who bought one but you can find better dresses for the same price). I thought my tent was made of better material than the DB taffeta dresses I tried on. Not to mention the poor fit and major alterations necessary. I ordered from somebody else so the materials are guaranteed to be different but I'm kinda freaking out now! I want BETTER quality. Haha. I'm not expecting Maggie quality though (replica designer I ordered)

LOL! Well, to me david's bridal quality in atlanta isnt that bad! The dress is well put together no frayed edges and the beading is very pretty. I would post pics but I am getting the bust taken in that is the only part of the dress that needed alterations because I have a small chest. I didn't expect designer quality because i wasn't paying designer quality but when I put on the dress you would never be able to tell that it was a "cheap" dress. Don't be afraid be positive! If you are a praying woman pray lots before it gets here that's what I did and i thank God that the dress is pretty being that my wedding is in Decemeber!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
