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

Recommended Posts

Well ladies, I have finally ordered my dress! DressilyMe had this dress http://www.dressilyme.com/p-stunning-satin-tulle-a-line-bateau-neckline-natural-waistline-wedding-dress-38078.html on sale for a few hours for a crazy price of £77 (about $120 USD) so I took the plunge and got a custom size (extra £10 or $15 ish) and asked for a load of changes including:

 

- Sweetheart neckline

- Lace up back

- "V" shape on back

- Detachable lace straps

- Detachable belt

- Extra 1ft length on train as I'm very tall

 

These extra changes cost $55USD so £35.

$28 or £18 shipping

 

Total cost: approx $210 USD or £135 GBP!

 

I also looked to see what import tax/duty will be on my dress - £27 which isn't bad at all.

I'm so excited and will definitely post a detailed review when I get the dress and also post any progress pics if I get them!

Thank you for your advice! I had a better look and the seller is someone by the name of Hua_Ye_Zhang, has anyone heard of  them? They have a rating of 99.6% and 27 transactions, which is not much...

 

I might contact her to ask about their return policy!

 

Do you really like it though? I'm starting to realize that whatever I show people everyone seems to like and in retrospect I guess I always say I like all the dresses my friends show me, even if they are not my absolute favorites, because I don't want to ruin their dream dress... so I need some honest opinions :)

This is an honest opinion: I love your dress and have dress envy despite the fact that I only ordered my dress yesterday! (my post saying about it is in moderation). It is beautiful. Utterly beautiful - but then I am a sucker for lace dresses :)

Thank you for being honest! I am a massive sucker for lace and just saw your dress and love it too!! :) Please let us know what it is like once you receive it, so exciting and what an amazing price!!

 

Im thinking of ordering mine too and if I don't like it I can resell it or try and return it... its such a bargain that it's worth a try! :)

Glad you like me dress too :) I wouldn't count on being able to return your dress if you buy it custom made - even if their T's & C's say they take returns some won't in practice, and you will have to pay for the shipping which is nearly as expensive as the dress!

 

If I were you I would get a quote from either DressilyMe, Babyonline @ DHgate or Jasmines (or all three) depending on your budget - Jasmines is most expensive, followed by Dressily then Babyonline but I think the price reflects the quality, although many people on this board have been happy. All of those sellers will custom make a dress from a photo.

 

The way I see it, ordering online from China is a risk, but some money can always be recouped by selling unless it really is awful :) And we might just end up with the gowns of our dreams with a tiny pricetag!

 

Work has now started on my dress, super excited :D

I also recently ordered a 2013 Inbal Dror dress from DHGate. It's expected to arrive in about 19 more days. I've also read through these threads and asked to see pictures. I didn't ask for any special customization. The actual seller is Hand Mi Hand with Happiness and here is a pic. I'll keep this blog updated as I get more updates/pics and then the actual dress.

    • 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
