- Wedding: July 2012
I recently received my wedding dress from China in the mail and wanted to share my experience. And of course, some pictures!
Firstly, I LOVE my dress! I’ll include a link to my dress at the bottom. It is supposed to be styled after WTOO’s Jasmine dress, but what I liked is that they have pictures online of their own dresses, so you get to see exactly what you’re buying. I was amazed when I received it by how much it looks like the picture online! And the measurements were exactly as listed. I’ll have to get alterations because it is ridiculously long, and just a tiny bit too big around the waist/bust, but I expected that from the size measurements online.
It arrived via FedEx, and I must say that it arrived very fast! I received the dress about 5 weeks after ordering it online, and it allowed me to track the package (I drove my family crazy listening for the delivery truck on the day it was supposed to arrive, lol!)
Here’s the bag it was packaged in inside the FedEx delivery bag:
And here’s the dress! I learned that it is very hard to take pictures of yourself in a big dress, but I was too excited to wait!
I like it best in natural light, like the pictures above. I have a few with a flash, but it doesn’t look as whimsical. Luckily, I’m having a morning outdoor wedding, so I will have natural light galore! Here are a few pictures of me wearing the actual Jasmine dress by WTOO so you can see how they compare. The biggest difference to me is the fabric, and my knockoff version has a longer, more sheer train. I actually ended up liking that way better than the original, and I ended up saving almost $1,000!

Hope this helps any bees who are looking into buying dresses online. Thanks for looking!
