    I would say if you're thinking about using Wonderxue then be sure to order early.  The date I've told her is April 5th and I've still not got my dress from her or notice that it's been shipped although she has assured me I will receive it this month.  I've ordered the dress, veil and a cover up from her so if they don't turn up/there are issues then I will be in a tight place!

      So I plan to use wonderxue on Etsy and she has this amazing dress in her portfolio that she's created.  I'd really like to try on the original to make sure it does indeed fit my shape and size.  I asked her if she knew the original inspiration and she said she didn't because she just made this off a photo someone sent her.  Has anyone seen this dress and possibly know the original designer?

        I will definitely keep that in mind!  My wedding isn't until December so I feel pretty comfortable with the amount of time as of right now.  Has she sent you any mid-production photos?

            I ordered my ttd dress from wonderxue and although I was nervous about it shipping on time it did. She was wonderful to work with and did a great job!

              I posted on here a long time ago and now that I had m

               

              y wedding, I am posting pictures. I got my dress from DhGate, seller Weddingdress88. The total cost for me incuding shipping was $189. I did not need one alteration, as it was perfect. The pictures do not do it justice, but the beading was amazing and intricate.

               

               

               

              Here is the original:

               

               

               

                                                 Here is me:

               

               

              
                                                                  

               

               

               

               

               

               

                                                                                                              

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

               

              My entire bridal party cost for what is shown is this picture, including suits was under $600! For some reason, when I uploaded these on here it destroyed the picture quality. The actual pictures are really much better:(  It was a dream wedding beyond my wildest expectations. I am SOOO happy that I chose to go the custom made route instead of paying the $2000-3000 for the original. It is something I will NEVER regret.  Side note: by using Weddingdress88, I was able to get all 3 bridesmaids dresses (one is not shown) and my dress for the price that my dress alone would have been at Jasmines.

                Nothing at all.  I sent a message a few weeks ago asking for some progress photos and reminding her of the deadline. About a week later I received a message that says: 

                 

                "sorry for the delay 

                Yes i am on it 

                Dress will be sent out by end of this month

                Please kindly wait

                Thanks"

                 

                I wrote back requesting photos but I haven't heard anything since then.  Getting extremely worried.  I'd suggest giving a fake date well in advance of your real wedding.  When I ordered, Wonderxue only had 4 negative reviews out of hundreds.  Looking now, there are two negative reviews in the last week regarding timing.  I'm crossing my fingers hoping my dress shows up in time and taking next week off to go shop for a department store dress (bleh) just in case it doesn't.  That being said, the overwhelming amount of positive reviews makes me hopeful that it will turn up in time!

                 

                I'll post pics when it does come and let you know how it goes.

                  This was one of the sellers I was looking at when I ordered, I wish I had gone with them! Beautiful =)
