So out of curiousity I wrote Duosheng to find out if in the best quality they would be using linen and lace and Wendy said they would try to match as close to linen as possible. I got very disappointed because at close to $500 I don't want to pay for something that isn't linen and lace. So I asked her what material it would be and she wasn't specific and said it would be close. When I asked her what material standard quality would be she told me it would be dress style 4506 satin and lace. Since Duosheng charges $297 for the satin and lace and Gianinarbridal $150 and many ladies seem satisfied with the quality of gianinar I am switching. What would have happened if I didn't ask about what material would have been used....wow, I would have ended up expecting one thing and got another. I kind of wanted the linen since it would have been easier to move in but the lace is just as nice. Here is a pic of it in satin and lace. Pam did you decide who you are going with?

I even found some close-ups of the detail work with the flowers, a website called light in the box that a lot of people rave about did okay but ruined the flower detailing and the embroidery itself was pretty much nonexistent.
So, I'm hitting a sample sale later this year and after that if I don't find anything I'll be ordering the knockoff from Gianinar and cross my fingers that they do a decent job on it, or at least good enough that all I'd have to do is have the embroidery done to my specifications by someone else. If I order from Gianinar I'll definitely share my experience, especially with my dress being so detailed.
I figure the worse case scenario is the dress makes me cry because it's horrible, but there's the possibility that I can find someone to do some detail work to fix it up.
