When we first got engaged, I purchased a custom made gown on eBay from China. I got the dress in good time and it fit perfectly; however, it did not have all of the bead work that was in the picture and the materials were substandard. Because of my experience, I decided to purchase the gown that I will wear for our wedding at a bridal salon. The gown that I purchased is of much higher quality than my original gown and it is exactly what I wanted. If you choose to purchase a custom gown online, I suggest researching the heck out of the site and don’t purchase from them if you can’t find any favorable reveiws.

My friend had a very casual wedding and she found a beautiful gown at online store called http://dressnelly.com . It was a light color (not white) and added a piece of satin ribbon sewn around her waist. It was so elegant and probably cost her no more than $300. Don’t be turned off by the colors and lengths too; what you see in the store is not necessarily what you have to get. Congratulations and happy shopping!

I got a dress through Jeff Liu of April Bridal and was thrilled with it. If you send me a message, I can send you links to some posts I wrote here about the whole process.

e-mail [email protected] for a free quote. She will send you samples of the exact materials being used too (there may be a small fee for that). She will also create a cotton sample, put it on a dress form (your size) and post everything on etsy so that you know exactly what you are ordering.

@Darcy: Do NOT do it!!!! I ordered a dress from weddingdresses100 and it is a total scam.  They advertise designer, high quality dresses and actually are just doing knock off versions in China.  Your dress will look totally different than what you order.  I had a HORRIBLE experience along with many others after I bothered to research!
