        It took about 3 weeks to get my dress which felt like a lifetime but they have Chinese New Year holiday now so they say it will take about 5 weeks. I would listen to advice they give you because I had an evening dress made by them and asked that they put a split in it, they said they thought it would not hang nice and they were right, now I am having it altered so it does not have the split

            Hi Ladies,

            You have been a great help in the past, and was again wanting some more advise! I am finding it hard to choose a dress that i "love", and so far have come up with two, that are pretty good. One is floor length and one is tea length. Every time i think that is the one, i change my mind, and think i will get the other one.  I am mainly thinking tea length as it will not get ruined with salt water and sand. Anyway..... i have found two dresses that i like on DHGate with MrChina, and was wondering if anyone had used them before? I was thinking i could order both and have one for the wedding and use the other for our dinner. 

            Would love to hear your thoughts.

            Many thanks

              Hi Beachy,

               I had the same problem as you and ordered 2 dresses as they were so cheap, I also thought 1 might come out better than the other. Now  think I think I have chosen my dress but I  don't know if I want to sell the other dress, keep it in case I change my mind again or wear one to the ceremony and the other to dinner. So I don't think I am any help but I think the tea length one sounds good for the dinner. Also have you tried on dresses in a similar shape and style to the dresses you like at DHgate, this might help you make up your mind

                Dear Beachy,

                 

                As a famous wedding stylist in my country says: unless you are invited for the Oscar's, your wedding is most likely the only chance you will have to wear a big dress with a tail. Don't worry about the sand and salt water, that's the great thing about buying a 200$ dress! Why don't you show us the dress you have in mind?

                  Thanks for the reply Aussie-2. First of all your dress is amazing, maybe i should go with Babyonline! I live in a very remote area, and can not go and try on any dresses, so sort of going by styles that i like and styles of dresses that i already have. I think because there are sooooo many to choose from it is making it so much harder, and as you said it is so cheap, so that is why i am thinking of getting the two. If i went into a dress shop, i would only have a few to choose from, and that would be it. 

                  Gracimurano, thanks for the reply. Yeah i know i should not worry about getting it wet, or ruined by the sand, as it is just for the day! I hope i can put links on here... these are the ones i am trying to choose between, so any thoughts would be great! We are having a very casual wedding with about 15 guests, so did not want something to fancy.

                    I just realized, that I never posted how my knock off dress turned out! So I figure Id post some photos for any brides considering this dress or this seller from dhgate.com

                    I ordered a knock off version of Maggie Sottero's Destination dress RD1044 (the one with the flower shoulder strap) I ordered through a seller named earlybird, and Im very impressed with the quality of dress! Its a chiffon dress, with a satin lining and the fabric is great and sewing is also very good, I have no complaints on this dress at all!  Here are a few photos, sorry they arent the best, hope they help someone though.

                      Oh gosh Beachy, I love them all!  I love the look of the 1st, short one...but I might prefer it long personally.  although the short is still super cute! 

                      I guess if I had to choose one, I'd say the last one is my favorite.  But I think all 4 are great dresses and I'd be happy with any or all ha! :)
