actually i heard many experiences about ordering wedding dress from china, something bad or good, i bought this dress for my reception from this site, (my sister bought hers last year, so i am not concern about the quality too much)

My suggestion is if you want a “simple” knockoff… get it, and try not to worry too much. If your expectations aren’t dangerously high, you won’t be disappointed with the outcome.

I’ve ordered 4 dresses from Alibaba for the price of HALF a dress in New Zealand.

I’ll let you know how I get on!

@Rayray:  

 

SO I have recieved the first 3 – two are amazing, and one was pretty poor quality.

I still have two to go.

Each dress was $200 including shipping which I hope to get back 80% of by selling online.

 

I own a clothing website and all of my dresses are shipped in from China so my biggest tip is to use alibaba.com or dhgate.com or lightinthebox  – a reputable site.  And to always pay by PayPal.

If you have an issue make sure you raise it with both the site you purchased from and PayPal.   My experience is that PayPal will quite often block the seller from sending and recieving funds until the problem is resolved – so in the past when I have had quality issues with a shipment and the seller refuses to budge, I would raise a complaint with PayPal who would lock down the seller’s account, and the seller would offer me a refund within 24-48hours.

I am negioating with a seller currently over one of the dresses, I want half my money back, and I believe I will get that back via PayPal in the next couple of days.

@Rayray:  I ended up getting a $100 refund for a $160 dress – which I then sold for $60 so I broke even!

And I am extremely happy with the other dresses.

I just need to choose one and get some alterations.

Here they are By The Way

 

 

 

All three need slight alterations – first one is too big in the bust and too long

Second is too big in the bust and waist

Third needs some tulle removing to give a smoother a-line shape – and the band isn’t sewn on straight (and I may remove it anyway).

I love the positive posts!  I ordered mine from an ebay vendor with good reviews.  It was made in about 2 weeks and took 1 week to ship.  When it came it, it looked EXACTLY like the photo and the organza material was just as nice as the organza I tried on with any Maggie Sottero or Casablanca dress.  Sorry for the poor lighting! I have 2 other friends who did the same thing and loved it as well.  If you are set on an exact style and exact fabric from a designer then I would suggest ordering from the designer.  However, I have found that I could save well over $1000 AND find the exact style I want by just going online.  What inspired me to do this was when the local store owner told me my dress would take extra long to come in because all of China is off in February for the Chinese New Year.  I figured if my dress is made in China anyways, I might as well order from the source.  And the source did not disappoint. Cheers!

@wings123:  Gorgeous dress – and yes! Same thing as me… when I realised all the dresses in the salons were made in China anyway, I thought why deal with the middle man, and went straight to the source.

I have two dresses in getting altered – should be back any day now.  And I’ve sold the others.   Couldn’t have gone smoother.

@Rayray:  That’s great! Where did you sell the other two?  On many of the wedding sites like oncewed.com, it seems that you can only post dresses by designer type!
