Light In the Box....Cheap wedding dresses!

Recommended Posts

OK, so I have read the reviews of buying a wedding dress from China, online, replica's, etc... However, I want to share my story with all of you looking for an inexpensive wedding dress or a TTD. I looked and looked everywhere for a TTD and couldn't find something I really liked without it costing at least $400+. I already have my main gown, which is a Maggie Sottero and I LOVE LOVE it! Anyway, I wanted to find something with kinda the same look....strapless, corset back, etc.


Anyway, I found a dress on Light in the Box for $139.99! I knew it just had to be very cheaply made or something, but it was in my budget and I figured if it was too awful I could take it to my seamstress and have her do something with it to make it better. I debated for about 2 weeks on this and their delivery time said it would take 18-20 WORKING days to make, another 3-5 working days to ship and then however long it takes to get from China to Dallas. I knew I was really pushing it since I am getting married May 3, so I went ahead and placed the order. I really didn't want to pay for a ton of alterations, so I paid a little extra ($20) to have them make it to my exact measurements....I am very short and big busted! Their standard length from hollow to hem is 60 inches....I had them make mine at 54 inches!


I placed the order on March 5th and the sweet little UPS guy (my new BFF from all of my wedding ordering! ha) delivered it to my house today,

March 26th! I immediately ran to try it on and inspect it to see what it looked like and I was amazed! It looks exactly like the picture and fits me perfectly! I also paid another $9.99 for a garment bag and they through in a garter, gloves and a veil! The total cost of the dress, custom made, garment bag and accessories, shipping and insurance came to $231.14!!!!smile29.gif


If any of you are looking for dress on a buget, I would highly recommend this place!!! Let me know if you have any further questions! I will post a pic of the dress from their site and will post one of me in it as soon as someone is here to photograph me! lol This dress is perfect for my TTD session....I can't wait!

Oh hun I know the feeling!!! I ordered mine from the girl who does wedding dress,prom gown and bridesmaid dress by landy bridal I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!! I only paid $190 (included shipping, bag, insurance) I didn't have it made to my measurements cause then I couldn't return it if I didn't like it and I was really hesitant so I had a standard size done, but she doesn't charge any extra for custom measurements.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
