    Hey Ladies!

     

    As of Right now, we are at page 286 of the "Post all Knock Off Wedding Dress Questions" thread.  I've spent hours reading it, and haven't really gotten anywhere. 

     

    I'd love if people could do a quick vote, and let us know which place you would recommend, to summarize all of the information in the big thread.  If I missed one, please feel free to add it at the bottom.  If you have comments/questions etc, please go see the original thread

          I think you mean DHGate, not GHGate. They are not a dress maker, they are like eBay and just direct you to the different sellers.

           

          I got two dresses from Monica Bridal and one dress from Babyonline. I prefer the fabric and quality of the Babyonline dress, the beading on the Monica Bridal dress was superior, and I was on pins and needles waiting an extra three weeks for the Babyonline dress to arrive. So it really all depends on the style of dress.

            Don't use babyonline from dhgate.  I ordered my daughters prom dress on March 3, It was suppose to be here by March 23 and I still have not seen it.  I filed a dispute saying I wanted a refund and then 3 days later they supposedly sent it, but the tracking number said I refused the package! The crazy thing is I was home.  I am so confused.  My daughter was very upset we had to go get a new dress that she did not like nearly as much and have it altered cause it was too big but at least it was prom, and not her wedding.  I would neverrrrr recommend anyone order from them.  If you want more information I can send you my correspondance with them.  I saved it all so I could dispute the charges because they rejected my dispute and request for  a refund.  I am starting to wonder if they ever even made it.  Their reviews on dhgate were fantastic, but I tried to review them myself so people really know what they are getting into and I can't review them.  Since it is in China there is nothing I can do.  Don't chance ruining your wedding day, order somewhere else.

              I ordered my dress from china Joyzilla.com  email address on paypal is spotvogue@gmail.com and it was suppose to be here April 27th at the latest but they sounded pretty confident that it would be early. They were unresponsive for about 10days and now I just received a email that stated it wasnt even completed yet! I am devastated because this is for my wedding!

              Here is there response Dear Traci,

              A nice day to you and hope everything is fine with you.

              We have just updated our mail service system and some emails were not downloaded correctly, I am sorry about this.

              Now your dress is nearly finished, and we will soon arrange the shipping for you. To show our apology about the delayed reply and delivery, we will provide a matching veil and glove for you as gifts, I hope this is fine for you. Meanwhile, we will send the dress to you via the fastest shipping service so that you can expect to get the dress early.

              Meanwhile, could you please let me know your exact wedding date so that I can offer more help for you?

              Don't hesitate to let me know if there's any other question.

              Best Regards,
              Mabel

              ALL I WANT THEM TO DO IS SHIP MY DRESS!

              I tried posting a review on there website but it says all reviews will be approved first and they have not posted it. I also noticed that there is not one negative review!!

              I will keep you posted if I get my dress.

              I am still praying for a miracle but trying to stay realistic. Huge bummer right before my wedding!

                    I have been communicating with www.bigdaydress.com.  I have not ordered anything yet but they have been very responsive to every request the same day, unlike many of the others.  They are costly versus the other replicas but they seem more reliable.  My first response from them came with the type of materials they will use, time frame, and price. They will send photos of dresses they have made like the one you want.   I have some alencon lace dress photos that they made if anyone is interested.   I can e-mail them, just send me your address.  They will send photos prior to shipping for confirmation of dress and if you order swatches they will refund the cost if you buy your dress from them. They also designed a page just for me to purchase the custom dress because it was not a design they already sell. The rep was honest enough to tell me she couldn't view photos on the original company website very well and she asked me if I could send closer images of the bodice to ensure I will be happy with the results.  I think the honesty is a great sign they may be trustworthy. With all that said I still haven't chose the dress I want to wear and have not ordered from anyone.

                     

                    My other experiences with these sellers:

                     

                    DHgate- Babyonline- responded to my e-mails everyday but while chatting with them the person stopped responding when I asked if I could purchase swatches.  I e-mailed requesting to buy swatches with no response for about a week.  Then after the second e-mail asking for swatches or photos they responded that they were not able to send photos of the fabric stating they cannot photograph in the markets. They appear too busy to make the dress I am looking for:)

                     

                    Gianinar- I e-mailed for a specific quote on a custom dress and I was sent a response with a change of e-mail address. I wrote the changed e-mail address and got a quote, the highest quote I received altogether, just about 500 when the others are in the 200 range. The next e-mail I sent was responded to about two weeks later with an apology and with another change of e-mail address.Too shady for this lady

                     

                    Dousheng- I e-mailed this company and received a response like two weeks later. The website is not posted in English and I cannot call the phone number listed to verify. Not reliable enough for my wedding dress purchase.

                     

                    Peridress- I haven't seen one review for this company anywhere on line that didn't look fake.  Even the reviews on the website are written by people who cannot write using proper English?  The reviews on the Peridress website are either extremely great or really terrible with warnings to not buy there!  Not worth the time to even keep looking at the site.

                     

                    So I did read all 366 pages of the other forum, I obviously don't work,lol.  I haven't ordered but I will update if I do.  I am hesitant because of all the dresses I tried on in the shops I actually liked a DB dress that is only $299!  Surprising considering the one I like on line is french alencon lace, duchess silk and close to 5,000 before being completely reconstructed because I am five feet tall.  Anyhow, I hope this info can be of some help to others that can't afford ten hours of on line research.  I will update if I order a dress.
