What email address are you using for DHGate/Babyonline? I found a dress that I really like on Shades of Pale's FB page but no way will I use them after all this. This is the dress, anyone know who or what the inspiration dress is????

Your dress is gorgeous. I just wanted to mention something i noticed. It seems to me like the rouching isn't smooth on the bodice. Maybe they can tack it down better? Please don't take it the wrong way. I just wanted to give some input

Hi just an update on my babyonline review I received pictures today of my 3rd dress and from what i see 3rd time is the charm. Please tell me what you think...466x700px-LL-e5509fcb_complete1.jpeg483x700px-LL-c0933b77_complete2.jpeg600x518px-LL-fd7bac3c_complete3.jpeg

I think that Shades of Pale may be skipping production photos in an attempt to speed things up.  If you go to their Facebook page, there are a lot of people complaining about bad communication and no dress, despite having ordered long, long ago.

 

I never got any production photos for my dress, so I thought it hadn't been worked on at all - and then it finally showed up on my doorstep and, lo and behold, it had problems galore!  (Listed in my previous post.)  It arrived past my wedding deadline, so it's no good to me, and I'm trying to get a refund but naturally, they haven't replied.

I just received an email from someone named Grace. Here is her correspondence:

Amalia is on maternity leave now I am Grace and I am new here please let me know if you are still needing pictures I can do something for you. I can see on our schedule, your dress is a little late but its is suppose to get finished within a week. Thank you.

I acknowledged that yes, the dress is late and yes, I do understand that it is the busy wedding season but I told her I would definitely like pictures of the dress before it is shiped out. I am hoping I can get pictures this week. I will let you ladies know if I do.

ok ladies like promised, im  posting a picture of my dress that i got from  dressylime, They were easy to communicate with, dress came in on time like promised. and the price was right. Im having some minor alterations done, but this is due to me beeing so parranoid that it will be too small and giving an extra inch in size...

dhgate.com, babyonline is the seller. Now fair warning DO NOT order unless you have time for errors also I could not see the dress you are inquiring about. If it heavy laces beading I would not recomend them unless you have seen my previous pictures a couple posts back. This dress is beautifu my past 2 not as much as I had liked. But there is also a fantastic seller on ebay you may also be interested in. I accidently won a bid on a wedding dress he has great reviews the do take about 6 weeks to finish dress which is good I would rather them take time than rush. My dress is in final week of production depending when your wedding is I can post pics when the dress arrives. I order tons from china both dhgate and ebay I have had far better luck with ebay.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
