    Girls, yankee candles do a smelly sachet named wedding day you could hang one from the hanger JUST in case.

      All three items they sent me were individually wrapped in clear plastic and then all in a black type of plastic with mega taping around it. It was in great shape and not very wrikled like prettypigg said but the scent was very strong. I don't know what the smell is but it is embedded in the dress. I have it in a plastic bag which is not good but was told to take it out and air it out for a bit and wrap it in a white sheet and then bag it again. Most hotels will steam the dress for you on the wedding day so I think that would get the smell out but I could be wrong. I wouldn't spray it though. Try what prettypigg said if yours has that smell.

        Looks great! I like the changes to the neckline, too.

        P.S.  Why does their workshop look like the house of a hoarder?!  Lol

            I am wondering whether Duosheng have put their prices up...they want $327 for the 'budget' version of Fiorella (by Maggie Sottero) or $417 for the 'high quality' version.

             

            Besides the ruching, that dress isn't all that complicated...I wonder why the price is so high?

             

            At this stage I am just getting quotes and samples of fabrics, but they are the highest so far!

              Yeah, they wanted $360 for mine and it's not that complicated either!

                Glad to hear not everyone had issues with the smell of their dresses, lol.  And thanks for the feedback on my dress!  I think I'm going to play it safe and just make any alterations once I get it.

                  I'm still waiting for mine ladies.  It was released from customs in Vancouver last Tuesday and still nothing.   I don't think anybody waited as long as I did for their dress.  It's almost a month since it was shipped. 

                   

                  Patience is not my strong suit.

                      My dress has arrived and it is Stunning.  Absolutely perfect in every way.  The quality and workmanship is AMAZING.  I only had a few moments at home at lunchtime.  Good timing as the dress arrived a few minutes after I got in the door.  I am so pleased with the dress I cannot express.  I did the best I could to pull it on to get an idea of fit etc and from what I can tell it fits perfectly.  I cannot believe that I have a dress of that quality and only paid 140 dollars.  By the way, absolutely no smell. Not on the dress or the package.  Barely wrinkled.  I'm going to my mom's after work to try it on and take some photos.  I'll post up tonight if I can get on. The last couple nights, I cannot get on here there is so much traffic. 

                       

                      Anyone even considering Monica Bridal, go for it.  You will not be disappointed.
