Post all "Knock Off Wedding Dress" questions/comments here

Recommended Posts

Yeah, she wanted to include pick ups on the front of the dress, and I had an idea for the sleeves, like accent straps sewn onto the sleeves, but then I decided I didn't want that, and she Insisted that those Should be done.  Even after my dad said that he didn't want that, only the long sleeves.  In the end the dress would've been about $2000 when I told her my budget is less than $700.

That's horrible service. I hope you are able to get your dress made for a more reasonable price. It also sounds like the attendant was trying to take advantage of you.

Would a knock off look even close to this good?

LadySapphire,

I don't think adding long sleeves can cause any problem, but I think you need to show the dressmaker pics of the sleeves you want to avoid any confusion.

 

Mocha,

Everyone needs to make a profit!  Especially in the bridal biz, they just prey on the brides' psychology.

Bonnie,

 

I just think it's sad that she gave them a budget, and then they essentially doubled it and made suggestions to make major changes to a dress. Why not try to find her a more suitable dress within her budget? Is that not why they are there.

 

Poor customer service I think.

This dress is stunning! You'd pull it off beautifully too since you're so tall (well, tall to me since I'm only 5'3, lol) Good luck, I hope you find the dress!

Hi, I have a question for the girls that have received their dresses. Did you have to pay some sort of a customs fee besides shipping charges? I came accross this on DHGate and was wondering how much of a fee they're talking about. If there is, how/when is it  payed? This is what it reads:

 

"Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer`s responsibility.Please check with your country`s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying"

 

It also states that "you would have to pay that to the courier upon receipt of the package(s) from China". I'm assuming the package would be delivered to my door-how would I pay the UPS guy-in cash?! Or would I have to go pick it up at UPS or FedEx?

 

I'm sorry if these are dumb questions, lol- I have no idea how this process works...would someone mind explaining?

Thank you!

I wouldn't worry too much about customs fees. I've ordered lots of stuff from overseas and never had to pay customs. They usually mark gift or samples on the package and it goes through customs. I received two packages from DHGate vendors, and both times no fees. If you are placing larger orders, they may value the item as customs and send a bill, but I wouldn't worry too much for a dress. P.S. I'm from Canada, so others might have U.S. input.

I ordered my dress through DH gate, and also ordered 2 flower girl dresses from China off Ebay and did not get any customs charges.  I'm in the US.  I think it depends on how they label the package and what the value is.

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
