    This is great! Fantastic links and this is really making it seem more like something that would turn out great rather than horrible.

    Has anyone ordered from oliviabridal.com or heard anything about them? They seems to do some of the more upscale dresses.

    Thanks!

      Hello ladies!

      I live in Shanghai, China and I did all my dress shopping in the U.S. I took lots of pictures and found "the dress" It was $375 in the U.S. but I brought the pictures back with me to China and had the dress made in 2 weeks and it exceeded my expectations. Not to mention it was only $70 USD!!!! If I get a chance, I will post the pictures of me in the U.S. with my $375 dress compared to the pictures in my $70 China dress. My dress had silk, satin and chiffon along with beading and a corset back! I LOVE IT!!!!

      I think if you have a good tailor they can do a great job. We've lived here a year and I've had lots of clothing made very cheap and good quality! I don't know what I'll do when I have to move back to the U.S. and have to pay full price for everything

      Good Luck girls!

      ~ Erica

        This place looks awesome!!! For a TTD it's not too practical as it's on the expensive side. I'd try it for my wedding dress that's for sure :)

              I know! They said that I can pick it up at the service center tomorrow, or sign to let them leave it on my porch tomorrow.

                  My dream dress is the top of a Pricilla of Boston and the bottom of an Amsale. I have a funny shape and that is what works best for me. I am SOOO excited I found this posting. I combined the pictures of what I am looking for and am anxiously awaiting a response e-mail to see if it can be done.

                  On a side note: I have a girlfriend that works at a bridal shop. Most of the bridal shops are the ones that make major money off the designers. The markup at her store is a minimum of 70%!! She said never pay sticker price its like buying a car.. Haggle. I just wanted to mention that for the girls are still purchasing a dress from one of their local stores.

                    That's just ridiculous! I know they have bills/employees to pay but seriously! Why isn't there somebody out there doing only 30-40% markup? You'd still make a killing AND get all the business....
