My best friend, who is getting married this August ordered her dress from lightinthebox. Took about 2 months to get here. And she is way beyond stoked about it. Some of their beading work was a little sloppy. But overall, most of us wouldnt notice. The quality of the dress is perfect. I hadn’t heard of many brides ordering from them, but I was certainly impressed. However I dont know if this will help you any, I dont know if they do custom orders. Goodluck.

@4ever:

Here are my 2 reviews from the dresses I had done.

1st dress Laughinghttp://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/my-dressilyme-china-dress-is-ready

2nd dress Laughinghttp://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/my-dressilyme-china-dress-is-ready-part-2

I love the beading in my two dresses and the material is perfect. I see no flaws. If your dream dress isn’t on their website they take custom orders and provide inexpensive quotes.

From what I have seen, the most successful China replicas are those with simple designs. Most with heavy beadwork wind up being very disappointing. They often substitute crystals for sequins, etc and it winds up looking inexpensive. So try to step back and be realistic, high quality beadwork takes a lot of time and the materials can get expensive, so I honestly don’t think it’s something you will be satisfied with a replica. Replicas are cheaper for a reason, less expensive fabric, beading, details, and workmanship, so you have to be ready to accept that it most likely will not be as good as the original.

It sounds like your second dress (sheer with lace) should be suitable for the replica route, but I would strongly advise you to either find a new less intricate design for your first dress if you have to go the replica route.

If you really think you can’t compromise on quality, have you considered just getting one dress and buying used or a sample? I’m gonna guess for 2 replica dresses you are probably looking at close to $300, and I have seen samples and used dresses for sale at that price!

@FutureMrsSitler:

Very true some use sequin.

@4ever:

I suggest you talk about not using sequin and any materials you prefer with the company you choose.

One thing I like about millysbridal.com is that they make a sample dress for you and then make your final dress based on your approval. Therefore they can take a long time with one dress but their results are excellent

I loved dressilyme because they didn’t take long but they make excellent qualty. I hear they have the same quality as millybridal. I know I loved it. I have no regrets.

I hear that coralsbridal does a great job with beadwork and materials. I haven’t had experience with them though.

Between these 3 I think you can feel safe if you are going the custom route. They are great with lace, beading, or complicated designs.

I am sure some other ladies on the board might have more suggestions.

Can we see the dresses?

As stated above if you don’t like sequin or prefer something in particular discuss it presales and give them sufficent time to complete your dress.

Have you tried checking DHGate?, I purchased a dress to do my trash the dress session.

It is a replica of a Maggie Sottero (Billie) however the beading is pretty sparse compared to the pictures. However I paid $150 total to get it so it serves its purpose

Took about 1 month to get

oohh!! This dess is to die for. I think its definetly a Milly Bridal Job. They offer swavorski crystals also. They have excellent beadwork. You can maybe check out their website to see examples and speak with them extensively about the details of the dress.

I agree with you on likeness. I didn’t want a 100% acurate job and I love it that way. I loved my company but I don’t think I have seen such detailed beadwork from them. So I would just say Millys because they give you a sample dress as a yes or no and then you can correct any changes. They will then make the actual gown.

They supposedly have very detailed images of their porcess. Maybe you can check more reviews of them online from actual customers of theirs.

Omg! I love your dress.

I found this as an example of their beadwork and their process. They are pretty good! Hope you have time. I hear they may need about 3 months, give or take.

I would also recommend Jasmine’s Bridal shop = their attention to detail is absolutely amazing, and their replica’s look top quality. You can upgrade to Designer grade and they will use all quality materials, but looking at their premium grade – their dresses are still gorgeous.

 

Really Really, I shopped around for a China dress store online for such a long time, and their are so many China horror stories out there – but Jasmine’s Bridal really seems to be amazing!

 

I’m getting my dress from them, and so far, they have contacted me on every single detail, every step of the way. The service has been phenomenal!
