A warm hello from Switzerland
I was lurking around since quite a while because I decided to order my dress in China. Now, I’d like to share my experience because I received my dress a couple days ago.
But first, let me introduce myself a little bit. My name is Lexi, I live in Switzerland, my fiancé is US-Citizen and we’re getting married next July. Here in my country, wedding gowns are freaking expensive and I’m not willing to pay thousands of dollars for one dress and the one I’d like to have…well….it’s far away from my budget.
That’s why I searched the Internet for knockoff gowns from China. I found reviews which are very good and I found some which are very bad….we all know about this, Than, I stumbled over a Website, which is (unfortunately) in German and they’re review is amazing. They have also real pictures of the dresses they make on their Facebook and so I decided to go with them. I’ve sent them pictures of the dress I want….(details from 3 different dresses in one….LOL) and asked them about the price. One hour later they got back to me and came up with $300 shipping included and I said yes.
I ordered/paid it on October 29th, on November 15th they sent me pics of the finished dress and asked me if it’s ok like this or not and I fall almost from my chair. What I saw on the pics was amazing and I was speechless. It was beautiful….I gave them the ok and they shipped it out November 21st. I had it in mail November 22nd….
It was packed in a cotton bag to protect it and after in a small box. As I finally packed it out and had it on a hanger I was in awe. This dress was everyting I ever wanted….a dream. The beading and sewing is excellent. The fabric is taffeta with some satin on the skirt where it’s covered with lace. I had it custom made and there are no alterations needed. It fits like a glove.
but take a look by yourself…..
this is what I received….
and finally me in the dress…

@lexi1372: Welcome to Weddingbee! 🙂
Congratulations on your purchase, you’re going to be a beautiful bride. The dress looks very high quality and well made indeed! It fits you perfectly. Which Chinese company made it?

Thank you ladies for the warm welcome.
yes, it is really high quality and I didn’t expected it. I was prepared for something different even though the pics on their facebook looks amazing.
The website is in German and you can find it here. They have a very nice customer support, and they are also very helpful. I’m sure they do also speak English. The company itself is under German supervision but it is located in Hongkong.

They really did a good job. I’ve just looked for further reviews online and it really seems as if customers are very positive (at least on gofeminin.de).
I’m not sure how the Swiss tax you but did you have to pay anything? I’ve just ordered on dressilyme and am a bit worried about taxes, but we’ll see.
In case dressilyme doesn’t turn out nicely, I might think about traum-kleider.com so thanks for the advice. (maybe you should add a “German” tag or so as this will prrelevant elegant only for us German speaking folks?)

I didn’t had to pay any taxes because they declared it as dress-sample. I know, in Germany you have to pay taxes if you order something in another country. I don’t know if this has also to do with some EU rules. Switzerland isn’t in the EU and when the total amount doesn’t exceed a certain amount (CHF 300) you don’t have to pay any taxes. I guess in Germany it’s a little different.
I heard also good things from dressilyme but when I asked them if they can make my dress the way I want it (when I send some pics) their answer was no and so I decided to go with Traum-kleider.com and this was a very good decision. They made it exactly the way I want it and for this amount it’s a bargain. I’m very happy about the way it turned out….
Thanks for the hint with the German tag….it’s a good idea and I’ll add one. I don’t know if there are many German speaking users here, and probably the should change the language of their website also to English because it’s really worth to order there. I already decided to order the dress for my daughter and for my bridesmaids there….This can become a little tricky because two of them are in the US and the others are here in Switzerland, but it can be done, like everything.
