It needs to be altered a little bit in the bust, but otherwise the length and stuff is great!

I think that for a knock-off ordered from China to my specifications, it turned out great! :)
Where did you go to get this? A friend of mine ordered a knock off cocktail dress from China and it turned out great! I was thinking about, if anything, getting a cheaper dress from them for a TTD session and wanted to know if we are possibly going through the same vendor

Woohoo!!!! It makes me soooo happy that you posted that vendor. I ordered my dress from Jin 3 weeks ago and I am so excited for it to come. There has been great reviews. Mine is a Jim Hjelm replica and the total came to $167! I went dress shopping yesterday here, but didn't buy anything because the China dress was in my mind and it might be just what I am looking for! I hope so. I will post when I get it!

Oh my gosh that's where I was gonna get it from!! I figured it was cheap enough that even if it turned out bad, it wouldn't be a big loss! They supposedly will custom make it for you, with your exact measurements if you don't fit their size charts (which I of course don't - I am 6'0" and their dresses would stop at about my ankles). For a custom dress, that is CHEAP!!

How long did it take for you to get yours from the time you ordered it?

Yes, they did it to my measurements - which is why it fits so well. The only adjustment I have to do is in the bust, and its because my breasts are not perfectly round balloons. And it has to be taken in, which is so much easier than altering it the other way!

It took about 3 - 4 weeks for it to get to me. I ordered it September 25th, and it arrived yesterday - so just over three weeks.

Did you order a dress they had in their ebay store or ask for one that wasn't shown? I want to order a knockoff dress because I just can't spend $1200 on the original with alterations on top of it. I got a quote from Landy Bridal which a lot of brides on here recommend but they were a bit more than I thought they were going to be - $420. And the dress isn't huge. It DOES have some beading on it so I knew it wouldn't be the cheapest but they have some on their website with just as much detail for less money. Anyway I'm rambling. If I could get another quote that would be awesome. Especially since it looks like they do amazing work!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
