    Heh... I can't afford high-end dresses. Our combined budget for apparel for the two of us is only $300. I'm 21 and he's 23, so money is tight and we want money left over in our bank accounts without needing to take out a loan. That's why I wanted a custom-made dress from China in the first place - not only can I get exactly what I want (which, so far, I haven't found a single wedding dress even remotely close to what I want), but I can do it within our budget!

      Totally understandable, life continues after wedding.  I know so many people who got indebted because they overspent on their wedding.  You can goto the local bridal shops to try out which style you like the most, then shop online.

I was terrified! But they did an amazing job!

          I am thinking of doing the same thing and ordering a knock off for my TTD. Does anyone have any experience with DHGATE seller name Faithfully? Any recommendations from any other seller would be appreciated. i am thinking of getting the sottero and midgley ssm5161 which is very similar to the Maggie Joanna dress. I am still torn between buying the joanna or the ssm5161. i also love the Maggie AD3300 but it is a soft satin and i think the other two would be more beachy as they are chiffon. Any thoughts?

            I just purchased my TTD knock-off dress...I found it on ebay for $100 - free shipping.  I ended up ordering it because there were other girls who left good reviews for it, and I emailed one of them just to make sure it lived up to the picture, and she said it did.  They custom make the dress to exactly your measurements -- so that was nice.  I chose a corset back, so that will help make sure it fits good too.  I can't wait for it to come it.  Here is what it looks like...I will share the real thing when it comes in!!

                Thank you! (if that was directed at me?) I do too!! I ordered it from "beibei.2010" .. She has it up for sale now at $108.00 - free shipping. You can have it corset back or zipper.  She also has many other designs.  She has great reviews, so I decided to go for it.

                      That's a beautiful dress, jszy10! Let us know how it works out.

                       

                      Has anyone had any experience with liangff1982? She has great reviews, and apparently has her own wedding dress line in China. Her prices are slightly less than Gianinar, too. With our budget, every dollar counts.
