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

Recommended Posts

Ok... well I have reached my 150 posts Yay for me!!! I have been looking through this thread and although it was extremely informative I somehow feel more confused. Or maybe it is just too much information in too little time.

 

For last week or so I have been looking through online stores that had good reviews and fell in love with a dress sold by babyonline, and I keep going back to it. one http://www.dhgate.com/store/product/2013-sexy-a-line-sweetheart-chiffon-strapless/84928910.html

 

My main concern with ordering from babyonline is the beading. This dress is fairly simple and In my opinion the beading makes this dress. If it ends up with cheap looking beads I think it could make a huge difference in the overall look. I did email Jasmins tonight with the info, waiting for a reply. But now am thinking of dressilyme.

 

@@candle23 I really like your dress and the outcome of it. but trying to see more of the beading at the neckline if you have close up pictures. What are your thoughts about it? 

 

I'm not really in a hurry, i'm going to try on dresses for the first time in 2 or 3 weeks, and maybe my thoughts about what I like and suits me are way off. But I just cannot stop thinking about this dress. 

 

Help!!!

@Lillian84 just look back, I did post pictures of the dress I bought in January. It is from Dressilyme. I would definitely recommend them, I think they did a great job on my dress. But...I did just order a second dress! I was just having a lot of mixed feeling about the dress, I think it is beautiful and really do love it, but the style that it is (slight mermaid) it isn't the most comfortable thing to move around in. I know that most wedding dresses aren't, but I want to feel a little comfy!!

 

I would for sure say to go and try on dresses and get a good feel for what you are looking for before deciding!

 

Will keep everyone posted on how this dress turns out! Even better too is that I am not telling anyone besides my sisters about this dress....so it will be a surprise!

Questiong for girls that used Jasmine. I emailed them on Sunday and still haven't heard anything from them. How long did it take for them to respond?

In reading on the weddingbee site I know they are quite busy.

 

I'd wait another day or two and then maybe reach out to them there or on Facebook

I did see some dresses online that were far less expensive than the original.  I opted not to go that route as I felt that it was too risky.  I'm glad to hear that lots of brides had success!

Just got an email today that my dress and veil have been shipped! Yay! This dress is a surprise purchase that FI doesn't know about so I am sure hoping it doesn't come today since he decided to play hooky with work and stay home with me! Lol

Lol, so somehow I got the email at 2:55am that my dress and veil had shipped, and they just arrived at 1:45pm!! Of course they did since Brad is home!! Looks pretty good, I can't get into it by myself so have to wait for some help! The dress is definitely not the like the picture I ordered, but it is very pretty still! The only thing is I bought it because it was a line and this one is for sure more fitting in the hips and thighs!! Oh, and it smells a lil funky but nothing a little airing out can't fix! I will post some pics once I get my butt into it properly!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
