I know a lot of future brides wonder about DHGate like I did, so I am hoping this post will be beneficial to those wondering what exactly you get when you order.
I spend roughly $200 and bought a dress from the online site. I got notification that it shipped today (I asked for a photo before they shipped it which I didnt get, seems typical of them from what I read). I am EXTREMELY excited but also being very realistic that I could get it and it could be absolutely terrible. Expecations have to be realistic with something like this.
I will post pictures in this thread as soon as I get the dress – should be in about a week!

I got my dress from DHgate for 180. at first I was not the biggest fan and had dress regret, but as soon I got to the alterations and was able to see it in a full length mirror, I loved it, and with a few alterations, it was perfect!!!!!

@BigKTibs41: Did you get your dress? Were you happy with it? I ordered a replica of the Amsale Coco from yateweddingdress on DHGate and was very happy with my experience!! I ordered it in tea-length, it was only $109 including shipping and they sent me pictures before it shipped. It originally did not have buttons on the back covering the zipper and after I saw the pictures I asked them to add buttons, which they did for no extra charge. I received the dress two days after it shipped!
In person it’s even more beautiful 🙂 I need to have it altered but I’m sure with a few small changes it will be perfect! The dress has boning and they went ahead and sewed cups into the bust area (which I wasn’t expecting – I thought I’d have to have a seamstress add those). The lace isn’t as high quality as the original, but considering the original is $4000 and I paid $109 that was expected. I hope some other bees see this and can be confident saving some money and working with this seller!

Wow I’m really impressed at how good it looks ! DHgate is one of the websites I was thinking about for my dress, I thought even if I spent 200$ on a dress and needed 150 or 200$ worth of alterations, that will still be 400$ for the wedding dress of my dream. I’m happy to see lace details look so beautiful in the pictures, that’s honestly what I’m the most worried about when it comes to ordering from China.

@NauticalDisaster: I was super nervous about it too! But it didnt look cheap at all, and NO ONE knew I payed that little for it! 🙂
