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.

    • I am looking for a best bride box subscription. I think it's a good idea while pandemic. As I can stay happy having bridal boxes each month. So, did someone have a one? What can you advise?
    • Hello everyone. Who have a destination wedding in 2020? Do you postpone it or celebrate? Please share with you experience.
    • Now we can say life is divided into before and after. And only now I understand our life was so good when there were no restrictions and quarantine. Thank you for sharing this beautiful wedding story. We also got married before the pandemic, and we had a beautiful wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. And during the quarantine, my husband lost his job and was depressed, we had big family problems that could lead to a divorce. Fortunately, I found a blog with marriage advice on how to avoid divorce and we passed this test.
    • I think that the pandemic has changed the lives of many people. Thank you for sharing your story.
