Wondering if any of you have heard of topspartner.com? I did a search in here but no go. My friend got 2 dresses from this lady in the company (from China, lady's name is Kathy) and the dresses had great workmanship.

 

I am in love with Maggie Sottero's Caprice dress and have thought about asking some of the companies in china to make it. If any of you have heard of topspartner.com specifically plz advise!

 

Here is my friend's dress, their wedding is under "Jesse and Emily" - http://www.reinercar...ry/destination/

no i have never heard of topspartner.com.... i wish you all the best with your dress shopping! and emily's dress looked very nice!!

i have been checking around alot also... im so much in love with lace gowns.. soterro and Midgley's Tracey... that one in particular. i've been checking to see who had the best lace dresses and Jasminesbridalshop.com they are REALLY good with lace their finish products is stunning. atleast those that i saw on here and those from their customers blog page. but they are so damn expensive :S..... i guess its worth every cent. but since you are just looking for a reception dress maybe you should go with babyonline, 189usd is a great price!

please post pics and allure 8959 is a stunning dress!

i agree with your mom... the first dress is too plain,, but it fit you well... the second dress is really pretty, bubbly and full of youth i like it and it looks pretty. the third is stunning. hope you post pics of the finish product! congrats to you!

i have ordered my two dresses and i wont say im in love lol but they have certainly grown on me.  obviously i did not have as much info about purchasing knock offs as i do now.  but i will be ordering another dress to compare.  i ordered from keren wedding they were initially on alibaba.com but it seems they are no longer registered.  this is the dress i liked.CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

 

this is the dress on me.

 

as u can see the dress shud have had some beading work on the side which wasnt done.  but when i informed her she agreed to send me the beading so i can get it attached as well as a belt to wear with the dress.  so obviously that help soothe my sorrow :-)  the back of the dress was meant to be corset but they had put a zip which kinda sux but they are also sending me extra fabric to get that fixed.  i would obviously have preferred to have a situation where they had done it right but alas.

 

i was worried the dress would be small so i had given slightly bigger measurements so the dress needs some serious alterations but nothing ridiculous.  i am sure once the dress has been steamed it will look heck of alot more nice.  my mom isnt loving it coz its plain but thts what i liked about this dress.

 

 

 

 

the second dress is super cute.  im not loving were the pink belt is places but that may have to do with my measurements not being exact but im so sure i will have loads of fun with this.

 

i would def recommend them all i would suggest is get them to send pictures before they ship.

 

i am considering making one more purchase since i have seen good reviews of babyonline

      Hi all! After much deliberation I decided to take a risk and order my dream dress from DHgate. My dream dress is an essence of Australia D1463 and is a little out of my budget as we are already spending lots going from the UK to Mexico for the wedding. This is a lot cheaper and the people making the dress had good feedback and were very fast at replying! Fingers crossed it all works out!!!

Amazing, and my sis was so kind and surprised me by buying it! Needless to say lots of happy tears :)

            Congrats Carla! Which DHgate seller did you use? I'm a UK bride too, Suffolk, and we're planning a honeymoon in Mexico :) 

             

            That Essence dress is lovely, make sure you show us when it arrives!

             

            I've pretty much decided on using Babyonline at Dhgate, just need to wait to get my measurements taken by a seamstress and try on another couple of dresses in bridal shops just to be sure!

              yes for sure! I am so relieved and I still can't thank my sis and bro in law enough for taking care of that for us :)

               

              I will post pics in a bit likely, I am paranoid about pics being in cyberspace for my groom to find LOL! My sis took some great shots, I'm trying to get them this week from her :)
