- Wedding: October 2013
I’m having my wedding dress custom made (yes, the dredded knock-off dress) because the original is a Donna Karan (one of a kind) that would be impossible to get (and cost me several thousand if I’d managed to find a way to get my hands on it). I’m a budget bride. So, this just isn’t going to happen. 🙂
I know that it’s smarter to go the route of going through the designers because there are no guarantees when ordering a dress overseas. However, my body fits into a standard size so fitting isn’t really the issue. The issue is cost and the quality of work. The dress I want is rather unique so it is important that whoever makes it can deliver quality work.
I’ve been all up and down these boards and all over the internet trying to find some back-up to make a decision as to which company I should go through (as I’ve gotten in contact with several that have interested me and have found supportive, and negative, feedback for each of them). I’ve narrowed it down to Elegant Park (Landy), Jeff Liu, Jasmine’s Bridal, Shades of Pale (The Velvet Box), Corals Bridal, and Million Bride Fashion Co. Ltd.
The future of my dress is in your hands, Fellow Bees!!! Please send me your opinions, and if you were a bride that decided to go this route…I beg of you to share your dress pics with me. If you don’t want to post them, please e-mail them to me ([email protected]). I am beyond grateful to any advice and visual support that you can send my way.
