I have read this entire
thread to kind of figure out which company to go with for my dress. Unlike you ladies,I will not be getting married,but renewing our wedding vows. I wanted a dress that wasn't white,& fell in love with Vera Wang's "Diedre" in pale nude. Of course there is no way I can justify buying it for that price,but started looking at different websites that made replicas. These past 2 days,I have been in contact with 3 different companies(Duosheng-Gianinarbridal-Dress Times),but none of them had a pic of their version of the Diedre to email me. Anyone ever ordered from Dress Times?
I'm leaning toward Gianinarbridal though not only because of the price,but because they send proofs of the dress so you can decide whether to buy it or not. Does Duosheng send proofs also? I've gotten 3 different quotes for this dress:
Dress Times:$289.99 (+ $200 extra if I want high quality fabric) but they don't have any pictures of an actual Diedre dress that they actually made to email me. They sent me pictures of other dresses to see their work instead.
Duosheng: $399.87 for the high quality fabric(the only option I was given).
Gianinarbridal:$150 ($80 non refundable deposit,& pay the rest after proofs if I decide to buy).
I have to say that I don't care to add extra money for the high quality fabric,but would it be that much of a difference for organza and tulle? Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the dress in pale nude and also in white:
