    Yes, this is exactly why i decided to try Dhgate. Almost everything is made in China anyway. My dress has arrived at the airport but hasn't made its way over to me. Hopefully I'll have it by the end of the week.

      I had a great experience with okaydress.com! I ordered two dresses and they both showed up EXACTLY as described. The prices were great and the material was of a very high quality. I recommend this website.

        Hi everyone! What are your thought ordering from DHgate? I'm from the uk and have found my perfect dress which is a little out of my price range, however iv found it on here for less than half price! Do I take a gamble? Help!!

        hey

        can you post pics??

        i checked out okaydress.com and there are hardly any reviews on their website. there are no real life pics of brides in their gowns made by okaydress.com,, so i think i would stick to jasminesbridalshop.com, dressilyme.com or some girls on here went with dhgate and was very pleased with their gown...

          Hi everyone!!!!

          I am a n00b to posting here but have been lurking for a while.

          So here it is: the dress purchase has to be done ASAP, and by ASAP I mean like 2 weeks ago.

          Anyhoo, I have decided that China will be the source (for obvious budgeting reasons) and I've done a ton of research. Jasmine's is absolutely fantastic with their replicas but the prices are pretty high.... Then there is DH Gate, where I am stuck between 2 sellers (Babyonline and hua_yi_zhang/Denia's Bridal). I plan on spending somewhere around 600-700 regardless.

          DRUMROL......

          The ultimate question is this: Should I buy 3 dresses from DH Gate (1 of them has GOT to be good right???) or a single dress from Jasmine's?

          Whatcha guys think???

          Thanks :D

            Well my dress from Wonderxue came today. I will post some pictures after I'm able to properly try it on but I will say, I'm not happy with it at all at the minute.  I ordered everything from Yuan, my veil, cover up and dress.  

             

            The jacketish thing looked nice at first but upon closer inspection and laying it beside the dress, it's actually a completely different colour.  The dress is  white as I asked for but the cover up is an ivory colour.  It's an off the shoulder lace affair that zips up the back.  There are jagged bits all around the lace appliques, when I took it out of the bag it had actually been sewn across the zip on both ends somehow so I had to break those stitches to even under the zip which resulted in beads falling off.  I feel mean saying bad things about the work as it fits PERFECTLY but the workmanship itself on the jacket is really bad, I could never wear it.  

             

            As for the dress, we had agreed there would be some tulle underneath to give it a bit of fullness, there is none.  Also it has a belt that's tacked on with about 15 stitches so that's not very impressive but is fixable. 

             

            I'll post a better description and some pictures of everything tomorrow after I'm able to get the dress on and properly see what it's like in full when it's laced up properly.

              Well I can't speak for any other companies but I went with jasmines and LOVED my dress. I would totally recommend them. They are pricier than most others but the quality shows. Plus you get photos along the way and you have to approve the dress before they send it. If you plan on spending 600-700 you may even be able to buy one from jsmines and one from another seller. I got my dress for 450$ and it was only premium grade. I was almost exactly the same as the original. I'll try to post comparison pics.
