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

Recommended Posts

oh another great thing about them is that they claim that the dress is only worth around 40 bucks. this is how they avoid problems as well as additional costs for you at the customs. I hope I wont cause them trouble with my post here :-D

What made me decide on gianinarbridal on ebay was all her great feedback!! She has almost 2000 positive on ebay for wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses. And most of them say that the dress is just like the pic. Also she responded very quickly to my emails and like I said before, she even sent me pics of the dresses she already made so I know what Im getting.

I ordered from Landy. When I decided to order through them, I hadn't heard of gianinarbridal or seen posts on here yet from them. I would have love to check them out.

 

A lot of the early threads on here are from Landy - and I ordered my dress a while back.

 

I received my dress yesterday. It's great! It's a corset back, so I have to wait for someone to come over and lace me up. I'll post pictures soon!

Thank you so much for your feedback ladies. A co-workers family owns a bridal shop and she told me the majority of dresses are made in China anyway. I guess its good for us right? Oh and post those pics soon :-)

Oh she is so great to work with you wont regret it! Of course I havent gotten my dress but everyone else thinks shes wonderful also. And she responds to you in 24 hrs. Except maybe weekends it might take a little longer, its either that or it was because of Chinese New Years. Good luck, let us know what you decide!

I love the dress and am really happy with the quality. I took it to alterations today, and it's 4 inches too big in the chest area, 2 inches too big in the waist, and 1 inch too small the hip. It's a little frustrating that alterations will be $200. I gave custom measurements that I had professionally done. Oh well, still way cheaper than the real dress I wanted (I did email landy about this)! Overall, I am happy with my experience.

I go back to alterations in two weeks, so I'll take pictures then!

OH no! Im sorry you have to wait longer, but Im glad youre still happy with your dress. I am pretty sure I will have to do alterations also cause I think 1 it will be too long (Im thinking i wont wear shoes) and 2- Ive lost 2 inches off my waist already (which is a great thing) but I didnt want to put smaller measurements just incase I didnt lose any weight.

Keep us posted on your pics :)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
