I went the DHgate route and was very unhappy with my dress too. Unfortunately it is not in my budget to change it once I received it. I have heard great things about Dressilyme and also Jasmin Bridals. You might want to check them out as well.

When I was going to go the china replica route, I certainly did my research. From everything I saw, these I would look into (it’s been awhile, I may have forgotten one):

-Dressilyme

-Jasmine’s Bridal (check out thier fb page- they have real pics of thier dresses)

-Landy Bridal

-Corals Bridal

-Monica’s Bridal

@Robin27:  I really love the dress Earlybird01 made!  I think it is beautiful!  But I completely understand not liking it if it isn’t what you had in mind.

Another one I have heard good things about on this board is Milly Bridal.

GL!

I personally LIKE the dress that they made. It looks very good. I think if you use a good crinoline, you will be okay. Maybe not as poufy as you want but the dress looks very well made. I wouldn’t chuck it just yet…. At least try it ON.

I think that first dress is adorable! A couple brides used Tidebuy.com and were happy…I’ve been looking through their dresses and they are beautiful and inexpensive

@Robin27: No prob :) Sorry you had to go through a bad experience, but many china dress brides have gone through the same thing & ended up very satisfied after going with another vendor. Might I add they still spent less on 2 china dresses vs. 1 even David’s Bridal dress? Good luck & please post the new dress when you get it!!

I just got my dress from Dressilyme yesterday. It’s fantastic. It’s not exaclty like the picture, but I knew that was likely going to happen. I think when you order a replica you have to be prepared to live with minor differences.

I used LightintheBox.com for my dress, and the quality of their work was great!

Hi Ladies,

this is my first post or comment so excuse me if I type something silly…. Which company is the best to buy from? I don’t have the funds to pay $1000 for a dress and so I was looking at DHGate but since I have seen this, I am a bit nervous.

@Robin27: I actually purchased my reception Dress from Duosheung.  They were great to work w/ and I will definitely use them again.  I went w/ standard bridal fabric and I was impressed w/ the quality.  Even my seamstress was impressed.  My dress was actually 2 different designers(Rosa Clara and San Patrick).  This is what I wanted:

This is the final product. Now my seamstress did have to do some minor alterations due to lack of quality control(I’m a perfectionist).  Since it is champagne and I want to wear again, I’m going to dye(pale blue/yellow/peach) and make some minor changes to the bodice:

@Robin27: Oh my dress was completely lined and had excellent boning.  My alterations were due some stitching issues that had to nothing to do w/ fit.  The dress fit perfect.

@CaptainSpaulding:

I totally agree! All of those options sound like a great choice.
