 You're right! I can't wait. When he sent the last email, it was 2:37am there and he told me he would be putting it in the mail later on that day.

What's funny is that when I first started looking at dresses, I was originally going to get a dress with the bandage bodice and ALL the ruffles on the skirt. I was obsessed with the flouncy ruffled skirts I kept seeing! Once I saw this dress with the sheer bodice, I knew I had to have it, but didn't want the feather skirt like the original. At the same time I thought that a full ruffled skirt would be too much, but I think this provides just the right amount of ruffles, yet not too much.

Yes they did! Thank you!

As soon as it gets here, I am going straight to my seamstress (I will probably even take it there before I take it out of the package!) to try it on so she can make any alterations that may have to be done. I'll be sure to take pics.

Hi all...

 

Took a while to read ALL the pages....but well worth it!

 

Currently awaiting pictures of my dress from GianinarBridal (They told me It would be finished 4 days ago but needed more time! :s)

 

My inspiration dress was the Maggie Sottero 'Nora' which i tried on in a bridal boutique and absolutely loved!

 

Fingers crossed I get the pictures soon and that its a decent copy!!

 

 

Here's the 'real' Nora....

Ok Ladies!  Starting to panic here!  I'm working with Gianinar Bridal.  They had great reviews earlier on in this thread.  Emailed them highly detailed pictures and sent a $150 nonrefundable deposit back on June 1st.  Told them my wedding date is August 10th, as in this Friday!  My real date is September 30th.  No dress yet and communication seems to have stopped.  Our original communication had them stating it would take 30-45 days to make the dress, then 5 days for shipping.  That put the dress mid-late July.

 

I sent them an email back on July 25th asking for an update on production and ETA for final pictures and shipping information.  I received an email that same day stating my dress would be finished in 3-4 days and pictures would follow.  Friday, August 3rd comes (a week later) and no pictures or email about shipping.  (remember, I said my wedding was August 10th)  So, Saturday August 4th I sent them an email asking for information because a week has passed since their last email that stated I would see pictures and I haven't heard back yet.

 

Yes, my wedding isn't for another 55 days, but I was hoping to have more lead time in case of alterations.  Now, with communication stopped, I am starting to really panic!

 

Does anyone have a contact phone number for Gianinar Bridal?  Anyone else have lousy communication right before delivery?

 

Thanks everyone.  Sadly, I'm starting to shop around again to make sure I have a Plan B in case my dress isn't here in time.

Hello! I've tried to reply to this a coulple of times but think it failed because of the picture? Heather, my situation is almost identical to yours! I'm with Gianinar Bridal. Paid deposit, told them my wedding was august 18th when its really September 22nd... They told me it would be 30 days and they were up last Thursday. They then says they needed an extra couple of days to finish and they would send pictures on Saturday and since then I've had no pictures and zero contact!... I'm worried and stressed! Amanda X

You both should be panicking. Yikes!!  At this point, I would work on getting the money back. Was this a seller through Ebay?  I thought they had that in the past but in any event, you should definitely get on course to get another dress made or purchased via a different company STAT!  What a nightmare. Sorry this has happened.

Just got an email from Gianinar Bridal.  They found a problem on my dress and are altering it now.  They should be done in 2 days and shipping will take 4 days.  My panic has subsided a bit.  Still looking for a Plan B, but at least they finally answered me.   Will it be here in time for my August 10th wedding date, no. (fake date)  But it should be here in plenty of time for the real date.

 

Amanda,  I emailed them at their hotmail address and through their ebay email address.  Maybe the double emailing got them to email me back.  It's worth a shot.  I hope our dresses get here in time.

    • 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. 
    • 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.
