I ordered a dress fron DHgate, and wasted $200.00. The seller is not the one who makes the dress, it goes to a shop.
My dress was a Pnina crap when it came back. It looks like I made this dress, and I have no skills whatsoever. Completely opposite of the classy champagne gown I wanted. Live and Learn.
I ended up ordering a Maggie dress in Light Gold (gotta work on my stomach fat, to avoid alteration fees). Great wedding boutique in Wilmington, DE, very nice people, busy, but nice people.
I also have a custom dress from bellinabridal(Etsy) on order. So what, I’m getting a back up dress?! Right? I’ve been scarred. Never thought I’d be a technically three dress gal. But, I plan on wearing one to the reception. I did this because the wedding boutique let it out of the bag, Maggie dresses were made in China, but assured me it would be perfect. Ooh the scars!
I’m getting my shoes and flower girl shoes custom made by Artyce, I’ve read good reviews, plus they’re going to be on My Fair Wedding in the new season. They really work with you.
Still working on flower girl dresses. Is it me, or is everyone accepting of the fact that all flower girl dresses look the same, and paying out the rear for them? Well, I’m going to try and get the Frog Princess Dress as flower girl dresses done in my color scheme. Waiting on final pricing. (My fingers are crossed).
Don’t order a cheap replica dress. Go to a trusted source.
Oh I forgot to mention, After ordering the knock off Pnina dress, a couple weeks later before see the dress arrived, and long before buying the Maggie dress(last week), I ordered some tulle dress from Light In The Box ($250.00) It hasn’t come yet. After seeing the quality of the first China ordered dress, I have little expectations for this one. So technically I’m a four dress gal. At least 2 of my dresses will be decent.
I’m done with my rant now.
