    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:

    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.  


    Oh my you looked absolutely gorgeous!  So did your bridal party!

      Help help I'm panicking, hope someone replies...

       

      I ordered my dress from dressilyme in Ivory a couple of days ago. Reading the internet, they say ivory at dressilyme is very white.

       

      The problem is, I'm ginger. Pale skin. Pure white dresses looked very stark on me. Is the ivory dressilyme dress going to wash me out??? Should I have asked for a different shade?

        Yea I actually contacted them couple months ago and got pricing lol but they are extremely gorgeous. A few brides on this thread ordered replicas but never posted their results. I wonder how they turned out. I can't imagine the replica was good though, these dresses seem very difficult to duplicate. I wouldn't try it galia or inbal dror, or any Israeli designer lol

            I ordered this dress with DH Gate, and it's just being done.  I've seen lots of people using it on this blog, so I'm excited to see how it comes out.

              I might contact her to ask about their return policy!

               

              Do you really like it though? I'm starting to realize that whatever I show people everyone seems to like and in retrospect I guess I always say I like all the dresses my friends show me, even if they are not my absolute favorites, because I don't want to ruin their dream dress... so I need some honest opinions :)

               

              Yes! I really like it! I love the sleeves! I wish I could have gotten a dress similar to yours too, but I'm sure it wouldn't have looked great one me! Lol! And I don't think I have heard of the seller you named. Do some more research on the internet and see if they have any reviews! :) Good luck!

                    suffolkbride,I have the colour chart from dressilyme(ordered this before I ordered my dress) and there's definitely slight difference from ivory to white. kinda almost cream. Light champagne would look too 'dirty' or stained looking. But then each to their own. I ordered mine in ivory.
