Post all "Knock Off Wedding Dress" questions/comments here

Recommended Posts

Good Morning Ladies!  I have read through most of this post thread and have seen the pictures of your dresses.  I am getting married September 30th 2012 and I fell in love with my dress at David's Bridal, but I'm not willing to pay $1050 for a dress I'm wearing for 5 hours.  I guess that's my frugal nature.  I have found the dress on dhgate.com and was wondering if anyone has ordered from Beautydesign on dhgate?

 

Beautydesign has a 98.8% positive rate and very good feedback.

I am nervous because there is so much detail on the dress.  I don't mind if the embroidery or beading design is different, but I do care if the tulle is ragged or the organza ruffles are weird.

 

Has anyone purchased from dhgate?  Did you like their communication and service?  Can you post pics of their work?

 

Thanks to all in advance and congratulations on your weddings!

Hi heatherc234,

 

I tried that dress on at David's and loved it, too. I completely understand about not wanting to pay even a thousand dollars for a one-time wear dress.

 

Many of the women here have had nothing but positive things to say about Jasmines. I was going to go through Jasmine's bridal for my own dress, but they couldn't source the color/fabric I wanted for my dress. Since you care so much about quality, have you tried to contact them for a price quote for your dress?

 

I know that doesn't quite answer your questions about dhgate, but the words in your message, quality, communication, nervous, called me to respond to your post in this manner.

 

Hope this helps.

When you get them dont freak out like I did.. They take them during production. weeks before they send them. Remember they are production pictures and not what your dress looks like. I flipped on Amilia. I thought that was the current state of my dress. An update on my dress. I have taken it to get alterations. They are gonna cost me 200 dollars. Which isnt bad for alterations but it is bad since I gave SOP my exact measurments and they still make my dress to big. It sucks. Amilia said they always add an inch or 2 just in case. and i wasnt planning on that just in case.

I got my dress from dressylime!!!wohoo. It came in by fedex  in the tiny little box, all squched in there inside out. They did a nice job! The dress is so wrinkly tho. I probably will need some minor alteration, very little. cause the measurements that i took with my mother were good. I will post pictures this week when i have someone who can take them. Does anyone has any suggestion how to get this wrinkles out?obviously steam at dry cleaners, but my wedding is not for another 6month and i will be bringing it to the seamstress for alteration, so im sure it will get wrinkly again. My dress is made out of tafetta.

Steaming is going to be the best option. If you don't want to pay the $40ish to get it professionally steamed, maybe hanging it in the bathroom when you run a really hot shower will help. Personally, I'd go ahead and get it steamed. Your seamstress should steam it again after the alterations anyway.

I thought duosheng had the dress you wanted? I was very happy with my dress from Shades of Pale but I think that Jasmine's is a little more well known and a little pricier. I think when it comes down to which sellers are better, it just depends mostly upon what you want on you dress. One seller might make lace dresses better and another might be better at folds and another better at pickups and so on. Just my opinion.

Please, please, PLEASE stay away from Fabulous U!  I posted a LONG while back about the disaster I received from them.  The dress cost more to repair than it did to buy originally.  I paid over $700 for a dress that I hated and ruined the majority of my wedding pictures because it looked AWFUL!  My dress had similar ruching to the dress you are looking for and they screwed that part up BIG time!  The ruches were individual pieces of material in some places and if you turned the wrong way you had threads sticking out.  Awful, awful, awful.  Look elsewhere, please.  They did great embroidery work, but it couldn't hide the fact that my dress was poorly made :(

 

Did you ever tell them how bad the dress was or ask for a refund or at least a discount on the dress? I wonder how these replica companies respond when someone isn't happy with the dress they got. It seems like from all the people who got bad dresses, that none of them got any of their money back. :(

This is so pretty, very nice choice. Look forward to seeing your dress when your alterations are done!

I asked them to make it in a more pronounced sweetheart neckline.

I also removed the sash they had and added my own that I purchased on Etsy.

The dress is by no ways identical, but for $180 for a Trash The Dress I was very happy with it.

 

Here is how the dress was shipped and arrived, it seriously arrived on my door step in a black trash bag, LOL :

    • 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?
