    Yeah, she wanted to include pick ups on the front of the dress, and I had an idea for the sleeves, like accent straps sewn onto the sleeves, but then I decided I didn't want that, and she Insisted that those Should be done.  Even after my dad said that he didn't want that, only the long sleeves.  In the end the dress would've been about $2000 when I told her my budget is less than $700.

      That's horrible service. I hope you are able to get your dress made for a more reasonable price. It also sounds like the attendant was trying to take advantage of you.

Would a knock off look even close to this good?

          So, do you ladies think that Jeff Liu can make my dress with full length sleeves?  I'm really nervous

            LadySapphire,

            I don't think adding long sleeves can cause any problem, but I think you need to show the dressmaker pics of the sleeves you want to avoid any confusion.

             

            Mocha,

            Everyone needs to make a profit!  Especially in the bridal biz, they just prey on the brides' psychology.

              Bonnie,

               

              I just think it's sad that she gave them a budget, and then they essentially doubled it and made suggestions to make major changes to a dress. Why not try to find her a more suitable dress within her budget? Is that not why they are there.

               

              Poor customer service I think.

                This dress is stunning! You'd pull it off beautifully too since you're so tall (well, tall to me since I'm only 5'3, lol) Good luck, I hope you find the dress!

                  Hi, I have a question for the girls that have received their dresses. Did you have to pay some sort of a customs fee besides shipping charges? I came accross this on DHGate and was wondering how much of a fee they're talking about. If there is, how/when is it  payed? This is what it reads:

                   

                  "Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer`s responsibility.Please check with your country`s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying"

                   

                  It also states that "you would have to pay that to the courier upon receipt of the package(s) from China". I'm assuming the package would be delivered to my door-how would I pay the UPS guy-in cash?! Or would I have to go pick it up at UPS or FedEx?

                   

                  I'm sorry if these are dumb questions, lol- I have no idea how this process works...would someone mind explaining?

                  Thank you!

                    I wouldn't worry too much about customs fees. I've ordered lots of stuff from overseas and never had to pay customs. They usually mark gift or samples on the package and it goes through customs. I received two packages from DHGate vendors, and both times no fees. If you are placing larger orders, they may value the item as customs and send a bill, but I wouldn't worry too much for a dress. P.S. I'm from Canada, so others might have U.S. input.

                      I ordered my dress through DH gate, and also ordered 2 flower girl dresses from China off Ebay and did not get any customs charges.  I'm in the US.  I think it depends on how they label the package and what the value is.
