I have a sinking feeling in my stomach.

     

    Awh i'm sorry honey! I hope the dress turns out great for you! Sometimes, with those DHGate sellers, you just have to keep on asking and asking for pictures. It sucks they didn't send pictures before they shipped it. :(

      Just though I'd share. Got my dress from Denia's Bridal (hua_yi_zhang). The seller was fast to respond to my messages. It took them 3 weeks to make the dress. It's made to my measurements and fits me perfectly. I already left them my 5 star feedback.

          Well we got our dress. Got here very quickly. It is not a bad dress at all. Well made. Not even close to what we were hoping for. The one on the left is the daughter getting married. She is in the original dress we were trying to replicate. The one on the right is her sister trying on the Chinese one because the engaged one lives in another state. They have similar bodies and builds. Posted Image The satin is not the even close, the box pleats are completely wrong in the front and the bodice is shaped wrong, shaped funny, and is covered in beads. The proportions in bodice and satin sash are off. We could probably rework the sash and I could easily take off the beading, but it might not be enough.

            Here's my DHGate dress with my shoes and jewelry... it's not zipped, I'm taking it in for alterations this week (need about an inch in the back).  And it needs steamed:

                Okay ladies so I ordered an Allure knock off for my TTD from Babyonline about 2-3 weeks ago.  They said it would ship probably towards the end of March so I didnt think much of it when I didnt hear from them. Prior to placing the order Sunny and I discussed receiving pictures BEFORE it shipped! I received an auto-generated email on Monday saying the dress shipped! I emailed Sunny and of course the dress shipped and she has no pictures to send me. Furious doesnt even explain how I feel about this. As I anxiously await the package and cross my fingers and hope for the best I would highly suggest that you stay in contact with your vendors after a week or 2 and start requesting pictures despite the anticipated completion date they give you. My mistake was that since they said end of March for an estimated completion date I kinda took the back seat thinking it was too soon for pics all the while it was pretty much done and getting bagged up to be shipped out. I will be sure to send pics when it arrives.

                  This happened with us. I posted about it in this thread. You can go through and find my old posts.  I asked them to take their time, offered to pay extra for lower "shine" satin, and there were a few things they could have altered with pictures, such as the bodice arriving full of sequins and sparkles. They said they would send pics before they mailed and did not.

                   

                  The dress got to my door in three weeks. We ended up not  being happy and there is nothing we can do.

                   

                  We did not use babyonline, though, and I heard their dresses are often just right. If it is TTD, you should have not problem......our dress was actually well made, it just isn't "right" somehow.
