My China made reception dress made by Duosheng/SMT Weddingstore (Ebay)was worth it. I would definitely do it again because:
-Quality was top notch considering it was a polyester bridal satin. And it was fully lined w/ crioline added.
-The Cost. $300 including shipping. I wanted to create a 50’s style dress so I added a off the shoulder’s bodice to a Rosa Clara dress.
-Minors alterations were required due to lack of Quality Control. My seamstress had to correct an uneven bodice, lengthen the arm holes, and re-stitch the sides of the bodice(I’m a perfectionist).
My reception dress was a big hit. Plus I was able to eat and socialize w/ my family and friends during our wedding dinner. Will add pics of me wearing my reception dress soon.
Sorry for the large photos.

,love your dress:D,my reception dress looks a little similar to yours, I received my China made 50’s wedding dress from perfectweddingforever.com
The cost is $128 incl. shipping,full bones w/ built in crinoline,corset back, material is bridal satin and soft tulle. The sweetheart neckline is my favorite part. My mom came and help me tried on it, it fits me well except the length is 2inches longer since I am a short,I am considering is it necessary for seamstress to shorten the length.

@RooBee: Love your dress. I love love love 50’s dresses. Wore a pale blue strapless tulle dress to my prom. I was having a hard time finding an actual original so I went the replica route. So happy I did.

You look amazing!!! The sheen on it is just the right amount to say, “hey, I’m the bride and aren’t I pretty?” haha. The fabric covered buttons are gorgeous!

@Mrs.ChubbyBunny: Thanks:) It was perfect for the reception. It had enough sheen that played off the light and my shoes. I’m glad I ordered it in champagne because their ivory would’ve been too light.
