      Which company did you go with to make your dress?

Are you going to get it removable or have it attached? I'm sure you can ask around different sellers for samples of their lace fabric, just like my last post said, I got pictures from Duosheng of some of the lace designs they have which matched the dress I had asked for.  But if you don't want to use Duosheng, which I didnt, then you may be able to get other sellers to send you some info.  I would suggest that you contact the sellers and let them know what you like, ask for some samples of their lace, and be nice about what it is that you're looking for.  I'm sure if you contact them with questions and concerns they will answer you. Dont feel like you have to contact them with purchases only.

        Are those just beads on your dress or are they sequins??

         

        Your dress is wonderful. It definitely makes me want to order with babyonline. :)

          Dear Joanne, I order my dress from Babyoline using DHGate! I feel very lucky indeed.

           

          GwenJen, I can't figure out because I haven't seen my dress (my sister-in-law tried it for me), my mom says it's no sequins. She told me the beading is very delicate. She sent me a picture of the beading but I can't really see:

            Thx Gracimurano! I am so happy for you that ur dress turned up to be beautiful, it is worth the wait, the frustration over the Chinese New Year and the anxiety.

              I should have known better ordering a dress so close to my wedding. Before I ordered my dress at the beginning of February I asked Babyonline if they would be able to complete it especially considering the New Year holiday. She told me it would only take 10 days to make and it would arrive well before March 20. Of course, last week when they posted the shipping notice, they advised me that it would not be done until March 20, but they would ship immediately. Today she informs me that it is still not done. Even if it arrives before my wedding, it has to fit perfectly, I will have no time for any alterations. I won't even be able to get the hem shortened!

               

              So for those considering an order, I would suggest ordering at least 4 months before your wedding.

                Gracimurano, that dress is beautiful and probably the best one i have seen on here! congrats.

                Mocha-so sorry to hear about your dress being delayed. That sucks. Was this one for the actual wedding ceremony? A little two way tape never hurt anyone lol if it comes down to it!

                God i hope mine gets done!

                  Hey ladies.  I have went through pages of this thread and there are so many gorgeous dresses that you have gotten at a fabulous price.  

                  Have any of you ordered through DHGate?    How did they turn out? 

                  I am thinking of ordering a knock off of Maggie Sottero's Victoriana dress through them and curious to see if any of you ordered through them and what the results were before placing the order.  Thank you so much for you time.

                      GwenJen,

                      I ordered my dress with Babyonline.  It's a recplica of Maggie Sottero Fantasia with some small changes.  I went with Babyonline because overall, I felt they did a better job with making dresses.  I may just be very picky, but other dress makers I've seen just seem to having something off.  Either I didn't like how something was stitched, cut, or designed.  I had a coworker that ordered from Duosheng, and she loved her dress, but it was a very simple, which I figured must have been easy to make.  I have seen some of their work, and they seem to do a great job. They also seem to have great quality fabrics, but didn't trust them with the complexity of my dress.

                       

                      I had requested a quote from Duosheng and found out they have several types of lace, but communicating with them was very difficult because I wanted a replica of Monique Lhuillier Magical which is actually a two-piece dress.  However, I wanted a top like this, but at the time I asked for the quote I hadn't decided on it yet. It was so difficult finding a picture of the skirt alone, but when I finally did, they still didn't really understand.  They quoted me almost 300 dlls for the skirt, and were insisting that I choose a top.  When I finally found that top I liked, I sent it to them and the price went up to just under 500.  I thought it was way too much, especially since the skirt isn't very detailed.

                       

                      BTW, I've been looking for a jacket that would match my dress, but I'm having a very hard time. I also always wanted to wear a veil with a lace border, which again, doesn't match my dress.  I'm thinking of getting a second dress very similar to the one you like, but the inspiration is from Princess Grace's wedding dress.  I think I'm going to wait until I get my first dress, and if everything comes out good I'll order the second one which will be my conservative church ceremony dress. :)

                       

                      Gracimurano, your dress is absolutely beautiful! Once again, I'm so happy to have ordered from babyonline.  :D
