- Wedding: November 2012
So after worrying about my custom red dress, I took a punt a couple of weeks ago and ordered dresses from Dressilyme, and 2 Vendors on DHgate.
Dressily me promised they would have it to me by the 15th (I’m in Australia) and FedEx tracking has it scheduled to arrive on the 13th! I’m so excited about this I had to share.
I don’t know yet how it will work out – I realised last week I was off with my measurements, so I’m hopeful that they run a little extra room. But I’m impressed they’ve gone inside the turnaround around time, and look forward to getting it!
Re DHgate: I’ve found with DHgate that their processing time for vendor guarantee seems to be a little flexible by a day or two from their advertised processing + shipping time – it’s something to be aware of for anyone else who is coming very close to the wire like I am. I chose hua_yi_zhang (Denia’s Bridal) and LinLin5518, both sellers which had good ratings, long established, and were able to process in under 15 days.
I also found a dress locally as a sample for only $250 that I will be having altered just in case. It’s lovely, but it’s ivory, and I really did have my heart set on the dark red. I can’t say enough good things about the shop we got it ( in Perth ) – its where we bought the bridesmaids’ dresses from, and of all the places I’ve been to in the last few months, hands down the very best helpful service. They are open about importing their dresses from China, but the dresses are gorgeous and seem well made from the ones I’ve bought and tried on. PM if you want to know details.
Please cross your fingers for me Bees, I will keep you posted as to how it works out, along with comments on the China dresses themselves when they arrive.
