I have ordered a dress from DHGate, babyonline.  It should be here within the month so I'll let you know how it turned out.  The dress I have ordered would have cost over $2000 to buy new and this dress is only $150.  I don't have high expectations but if comes and I like it I just saved myself a bunch of money, if I hate it I still have time to find something.

Ordering a knockoff dress is something I considered.  I did lots of research and personally know some people who have ordered wedding dress knockoffs from online sites and have loved them.  I also know a few people who have done the same and really hated their dress and ended up spending the money anyways.  I know after falling in love with a dress in a store and seeing how it was made I knew a dress online probably couldnt compare and I would critique it to death.  In the end I just ended up spending the money in the store for my dress and I'm really happy I did. I guess it also depends when your wedding is.  If you have lots of time before your wedding you could always order the cheaper online dress and if it comes and you hate it you can get the dress from a store, but then you really arent saving any money!

Well .. i personally think that wedding dresses shouldn't be bought virtually online... 

Its the best day of your life.. and you want something which suits you the best!! 

When it comes to jewelry you can buy those stuffs online... 

But wedding dress ..  seems to be a difficult option when it comes to online shopping!!

Before you order ANYTHING online make sure you check out the selling website on 'retailmenot.com', you may find there are some coupon codes or discounts available to you.

Did it come in yet? I'm looking to buy my TTD dress (we eloped) and I can't see myself spending too much for a dress I'm really just going to wear for pictures (we're not having a ceremony or anything). DHgate looked too good to be true but sometimes they surprise you! My dad is a tailor and I asked him about issues with doing alterations on a knock-off dress, I explained that it would be coming from a factory in China - he literally laughed and said "where do you think most of our clothes come from anyway" and it's true isn't it? cheesy.gif

Still, I'd like to hear about your experience with that particular store (babyonline) at DHgate.

    • 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?
