- Wedding: September 2013
For all my posts and questions regarding whether or ot to go more modest without religious or social view, I am so happy with my choice.
My bridal dream was to wear something very chic and feminine. Something out of a disney movie or barbie coloring book. Gotta love those subliminal messages. Not to mention how femme and independant my mum is. She loves her red nails, rolled hair and take control eyebrows. I, in turn, have emulated such.
She was quite daring in her day, she wore a tea length blue dress and strappy wedges (1977). I know right, I come from fashionistas!
But on to what I (we) have been waiting for.
I went with a choice that I super duper happy I went with, online DHgate.com
Now, here is a link to the vendor I used. I highly recommend!
Here’s what I liked about them.
1) For what I paid, I got a great deal!
2) It came as the exact measurements I sent!!!
****I wanted it to be fitted by a seamtress in my area, but to come as it did. I would totally buy a fitted piece from them in the future. It’s a perfectly made piece that can be tailored to fit like a glove. But if you want something that is ready to wear out of the shipping box, I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t be able to do it because of how nice it arrived.****
3) Great communication from the get go. Easy to respond via email. Made my piece custom and exactly how I wanted it with ONE, that’s right one conversation. You can tell that they not only make clothing but understand they pattering very well.
4) Arrived early! Yeah, 4 days early BOOM! (And it was double bagged, i liked that they didn’t waste a lot of boxing and had it well protected. =)
5) It’s beautiful! Its the perfect color, its as detailed as I wanted it. I asked for a toned down version of the sample image and I love their choices.
On to the photos! Click the link to see what I ordered;
The vendor is Colorful_day.LTD and if you do buy, please mention that I suggested you to them. I plan on buying a lot more from them, I have three nieces! But I am in no way endorsed by them, just a really happy customer!
Fallowing Images are personal, sorry they are so big! I dont know how to rescale.
The first image is how the package arrived, the second is the inner liner that was inside the black taped package
The neckline is more delicate than the original, how I asked for it. I am getting married on the beach and wanted the feel to compliment not compete.
A detail of the back, sorry for the bad picture taking, but the back has the deep “v” and satin buttons I wished for. I love the bottom lace detailing and sequins for just a little sparkle.
Bear with me, I couldn’t zip the back, because its just at that spot you can’t reach and I was trying it on in secret. The SO was watching tv while I was trying to contain my excitedment, who else has that happened to????
But, back to the point, its perfect!!!!!! It’s just what I wanted and with a little fitting and a proper bra it will be just how I wished to look!!!!!
BONUS!!!!! The vendor added these little lace pieces all over the sleeves, I didn’t ask, but I love love love them!!!! Adds an extra pop!
So, overall… I’m overly thrilled with my decision to go modest and to choose a DHgate.com maker. I felt confident in my purchase, and am very happy.
What online china products did you purchase?
