Long story short, my wedding doesn’t really have a budget…but not in the good way. I’m trying to spend as little as possible but to still have a pretty and fun time for my me and my loved ones.
I started kinda dress shopping online (which is scary anyway), and I stumbled across thecustomdresses.com. I’m not above having a knockoff dress as long as it’s still put together well and isn’t made out of…like car upholstery or burlap or something, you know?
So has anyone used this site? Known anyone who’s used it? Give me deets, please!

I’m soooo right there with you. That site looks like a lot of the types from ebay and stuff and I know nothing about those either. I’m on the CHEAP no budget but I don’t want to get just anything either and I don’t care about a knockoff and I really don’t care about fabric quality or whatever. I’ll be watching this post for responces too! There’s another one called edressit I think that looks the same too and again there are TONS on ebay that are top rated sellers that custom make dresses for $150 have you heard anything about those?

I haven’t heard anything about the site but there are lots of great dress makers on Etsy that can custom make dresses for very affordable prices, too!

I just got my dress from the yesterday and I loved it! It was “inspired” by the Casablanca 1955. It’s perfect! I think they left a little too much room for breast enhancements but that can be easily fixed. If you’re planning on wearing really high heels/pumps then add an extra inch to your height… I ordered from them January 10th and got it yesterday. They even contacted me before changing a small detail about the dress that they thought would make it look better just to get my aproval. Hope this helps!

I bought my dress from the customdresses.com!
I really liked one dress… asides from the material the skirt-portion of the dress was made of. So I found another dress bottom that I liked. After several emails about having the two dresses essentially combined… I placed my order. About a week after placing my order, I had a phone call from China asking if I wanted a bustle added to the dress; their seamstress thought the dress would look better with one.
Well, DHL tried to deliver the dress yesterday (*16* working days after placing the order, and no I didn’t pay to expedite the dress) but no one was home… so hopefully I’ll get to see it soon!
I’ll keep you posted on how it turned out!

The dress is still wrinkled as it just came out of the box
but look at the pictures and decide for yourself! :]
