I think I am going to take a leap and try this too. I have read a lot of feedback on eBay, and people seem to be really happy. I will look for Landy. Thanks so much to everyone that has posted an opinion here. It really helps!

I ordered this dress hoping it looks beautiful and if it needs some alterations I can just go get those done.

It does have a corset back so I know that helps but I realize it might be too long, which isnt that hard to fix anyway.

Here is my dress..

Ok so I have a confession to make. LOL

I wanted to see what my dress was going to look like in white. So I emailed another vendor and they sent me a pic of how they make the white one, I almost cried! This is what she sent me:

Dont get me wrong, if this is their final product it looks great but my favorite part about this dress is the bottom, and its nothing like it. So I figured I should email gianinarbridal and she sent me pics this dress in 3 different colors, front and back! And I am so happy!!!

Here is mine, please pardon the bad hair and no smile on some pics, DBF was driving me crazy not taking the pics like I wanted. Front:

On this pic I'm pinching the back to hold it better:

See how much room I have at the back:

I don't know if you can see how the neckline was done, it is kind of sweetheart strapless, and they added that chiffon layer to give it a halter like look. Not very linear like a true halter, specially since I have nothing to fill it. Can you also see the creasing at the front about waist high? Seem like the extra layer used on the bodice (sandwiched between the satin and the inner layer is not sewn perfectly straight and bunches a bit. We tried to iron this out without success.

I think most of it is fixable, not sure the neckline can be made perfect though, which disappoints me, since how hard can it be to make a nice halter in the first place? (Adding lots of padding should help, I've tested it using my magical filled push-up bra.) Someone here gave me a reference for alterations, I have to contact them, but I'm so busy next week, and time is running fast!
Hi

Your dress looks lovely, it really suits you.
I know you are dissapointed with the fit, but it is easier to alter, if the dress is bigger.
The models in the pictures are way thin dont forget so the dress will look slightly different on everybody. Hopefully you will find a seamstress to fix the bits your not happy with.
good luck

Hi Ladies,

Thanks for all of the great options. I have emailed a few of the options to get pricing. What was it that "sold" you on a particular company? I'm so confused as to who to work with. Thanks!

I chose gianinarbridal because they send you proof pictures as soon as the dress is done and they still allow changes before they finally send you the dress (I specifically asked them about that). This was mainly why I decided to go with them. Also I didnt hear anything bad about them unlike about Landy, Duosheng or the other named companies. Prices are reasonable and you can always chose between a cheap and expensive option. But even if you go with the cheaper fabric, all the dresses I saw looked great. In my opinion they come closest to the original picture.
Good luck in deciding. Tell us who you chose.

    • 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.
