It took about 3 weeks to get my dress which felt like a lifetime but they have Chinese New Year holiday now so they say it will take about 5 weeks. I would listen to advice they give you because I had an evening dress made by them and asked that they put a split in it, they said they thought it would not hang nice and they were right, now I am having it altered so it does not have the split

Hi Ladies,

You have been a great help in the past, and was again wanting some more advise! I am finding it hard to choose a dress that i "love", and so far have come up with two, that are pretty good. One is floor length and one is tea length. Every time i think that is the one, i change my mind, and think i will get the other one.  I am mainly thinking tea length as it will not get ruined with salt water and sand. Anyway..... i have found two dresses that i like on DHGate with MrChina, and was wondering if anyone had used them before? I was thinking i could order both and have one for the wedding and use the other for our dinner. 

Would love to hear your thoughts.

Many thanks

Hi Beachy,

 I had the same problem as you and ordered 2 dresses as they were so cheap, I also thought 1 might come out better than the other. Now  think I think I have chosen my dress but I  don't know if I want to sell the other dress, keep it in case I change my mind again or wear one to the ceremony and the other to dinner. So I don't think I am any help but I think the tea length one sounds good for the dinner. Also have you tried on dresses in a similar shape and style to the dresses you like at DHgate, this might help you make up your mind

Dear Beachy,

 

As a famous wedding stylist in my country says: unless you are invited for the Oscar's, your wedding is most likely the only chance you will have to wear a big dress with a tail. Don't worry about the sand and salt water, that's the great thing about buying a 200$ dress! Why don't you show us the dress you have in mind?

Thanks for the reply Aussie-2. First of all your dress is amazing, maybe i should go with Babyonline! I live in a very remote area, and can not go and try on any dresses, so sort of going by styles that i like and styles of dresses that i already have. I think because there are sooooo many to choose from it is making it so much harder, and as you said it is so cheap, so that is why i am thinking of getting the two. If i went into a dress shop, i would only have a few to choose from, and that would be it. 

Gracimurano, thanks for the reply. Yeah i know i should not worry about getting it wet, or ruined by the sand, as it is just for the day! I hope i can put links on here... these are the ones i am trying to choose between, so any thoughts would be great! We are having a very casual wedding with about 15 guests, so did not want something to fancy.

I just realized, that I never posted how my knock off dress turned out! So I figure Id post some photos for any brides considering this dress or this seller from dhgate.com

I ordered a knock off version of Maggie Sottero's Destination dress RD1044 (the one with the flower shoulder strap) I ordered through a seller named earlybird, and Im very impressed with the quality of dress! Its a chiffon dress, with a satin lining and the fabric is great and sewing is also very good, I have no complaints on this dress at all!  Here are a few photos, sorry they arent the best, hope they help someone though.

Oh gosh Beachy, I love them all!  I love the look of the 1st, short one...but I might prefer it long personally.  although the short is still super cute! 

I guess if I had to choose one, I'd say the last one is my favorite.  But I think all 4 are great dresses and I'd be happy with any or all ha! :)

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!  
    • Visit Jamaica and check out Montego Bay Photographer for your family vacation or Destination Wedding photography!!! https://www.montegobayphotographer.com
    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
