Hi! Did you end up buying the dress? I am also intereste in ordering a dress from that same store on Etsy and even though she has great reviews, I’m still a little hesitant!

Hi!

I have ordered my dress from wonderxue’s shop on etsy because I absolutely loved her work BUT my wedding is in two and a half weeks and I still don’t have the dress.  The seller initially quoted me a turnaround time of 10 days.  When I ordered, it changed to twenty and at this point it has been well over that.  I think she got swamped with orders and I notice that she has since updated her note on order times, but this has been pretty stressful.  I will certainly update when the dress has arrived to let you know how it turned out.  If you do end up ordering through wonderxue, I would recommend ordering well in advance.

UPDATE:

Well, I did finally get my order from Wonderxue.  I have very mixed reviews for this seller.  The dress did look wonderful…just as I pictured and the fit was quite good (though she does leave some extra room in case you need alterations).

On closer inspection though, there was some evidence that this was a rush job.  The stitching around the waistband was starting to come apart after I had only tried the piece on once or twice.  Then, I took it to be dry cleaned so that it would be fresh and pressed for the wedding.  When I came to pick it up, the drycleaner informed me that the lace trim had been glued on and had all come off in the steam cleaning!!  Fortunately, the drycleaner offered to handsew the trim back on and it looked beautiful.

I think that although this seller is capable of beautiful work, she has taken on more orders than she can handle and is now in a bit of a bind.  My advice to anyone wishing to order from wonderxue is that you order well in advance and get a firm commitment on the turnaround time.

I ordered my dress from this shop back in May. I still do not have the dress and am becoming quite anxious over it. I’ve been trying to get confirmation that she would be shipping the completed dress sometime this week. Today when I logged in to see if she had replied to my emails, I was quite shocked to see both the listing and her shop taken down from Etsy.

I’ve lodged a complaint with both Paypal and Etsy.

I am very thankful I have a back-up dress already to go. I would NOT recommend this supplier.

@sannis13:  OMG! I’m SO glad I saw this because I was planning on ordering my reception gown from her….I found her site still on Etsy today so I’m more than a bit concerned about the issues posted above by my fellow bees. I guess I dodged this bullet but did you ever get your money back??

@thebearshoney:  I did finally get my money back. She eventually sent the dress (1 week before the wedding). The fit was atrocious. She refunded everything except shipping and told me to keep the dress. I’m not sure what to do with it now as it’s clearly made for a very very short flat chested chubby person. I am none of these. LOL

I had an AWFUL experience with Wonderxue. She promised to deliver my dress in April, repeatedly move it back but now says taht she can’t make my dress because she got too busy!!! It’s too late for me to go to a bridal boutique to buy a dress because I wasted 3 months waiting for her. I wouldn’t recommend her. She may make beautiful dresses for cheap, but her words can’t be trusted. She has issues committing to orders.
