Hey everyone, wondering if anyone has had their gowns made overseas in asain countries? if so what was your experience and how happy were you with the finished results?
I am looking into it, I have worked in bridal wear for many years and never considered it for myself but I want something unique and this looks like the cheapest way…My mother is VERY against it, please let me know what you think of the link below, this caught my eye and I LOVE IT but the price looks too good to be true!

@Kathleenya: I am having my dress custom made in the Philippines. It seems that the practice for brides there is to have gowns cutom made so there are a ton of dressmakers and local designers who specialize in bridal wear. Our wedding will be held there though so we were able to transact personally with the designer when we were there last year and I was able to see the progress of the dress personally when I was there early this year.
I think in your case, I’d be wary of scams since you’ll be transacting purely through the internet. I agree with the price of that one. With the amount of beading that dress has, it looks too good to be true.
