Yuan runs the ETSY store she has quoted me $220USD +$30 shipping for my custom dress. This is my second dress for my Trash the Dress Photo shoot. We are doing the underwater in the Cenotes so I wanted something flowy..

 

I have combined two dresses together. First photo will be the bodice with teh ribbon and flower. The second and third photos will be the bottom half (no brown ribbon):

I think you dress combo idea is cool. I have never heard of this seller and I am not sure if they are featured in this forum, but I hope it turns out great. Have you tried some of the other "cheaper" Chinese knockoffs that are mentioned in here like babyonline (DH GATE) and Dressilyme?  They are pretty well-reviewed here.

I have looked at babyonline but didnt really see anything that fit the bill. I almost ordered from Dressilyme but again the dresses werent exactly what i was looking for. Do either of those sites make custom dresses for you? Or just what they have available in their stores?

Yeah I was going to say, they both specialize in customizing dresses. Those dresses are just samples of what they do, that's not representative of all they have available.

Yeah! From what I've read on this thread, you can send Dressilyme photos of the dress you want and they'll decide if they can make it for you and if they can, they'll send you a quote. I also sent them photos of the dress I wanted, but when they replied to me I already bought the dress from babyonline.

I heard back from Dressilyme. They said they cannot put two dresses together! They require one dress to copy. Oh well. I think i am going to risk it with Wonderxue from Etsy. Worst case if it doesnt fit or i dont like it i can always wear my real dress. I will keep you all posted how it goes!

Lisa from Jasmines sent more progress photos of my dress with the lace application (now they will apply the beading and buttons) and what a difference the revisions I asked for made!  It has the shape! I am happy with the progress so far!

Wow, this is turning out beautifully.  You're going to look fantastic! Do you mind if I ask what grades you went with for fabric and craftsmanship?

I ordered 2 dresses...one is the wedding dress from LandyBridal and the other is a dress for cutting the cake from Jasmine's....What do you think?

 

1st Dress (The differences I noticed were the size and location of the belt, the neckline, and the buttons extending past the waist in the back. They said I will need to wear a petticoat if I want a fuller look).

 

Inspiration:

Lazaro Style 3250

    • 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?
