I feel a little disappointed...

I recently decided to wear a reception dress other than my wedding dress. I ordered my wedding dress with Milly bridal, and since I only have 3 months left before my wedding. It's not a good idea to order my reception dress with them, so I decided to order it with Dressilyme. I emailed them the inspiration picture and asked for a quote. But they replied saying they can't make this dress, I really feel a little disappointed. Do all of you have any suggestion of where can I get this dress made? I really love it and really want to wear it for my reception. Here is the dress.

Sorry for my late reply as we just come back from our weekend here .Hope you can understand us in this point.

 

Regarding the dress you attached here, we are sorry to let you know that we can not make it as we do not have the material to make sure of its effect as the original picture .Kindly you can choose any other style instead.

Oh that's a beautiful dress KKyo.  I'm sorry they can't make it for you, but I wonder why they said that.   Even if you sent them pictures of the design up close?    I would ask them if you could show them close ups pics.  Do you have close ups of it?  Its seems as if they can make almost anything, so I'm rather shocked myself that they can't do it.

It's a gorgeous dress. I think it's the amount of sewing that dress will take to make. It looks like there's a ton of small strips of fabric sewed on in s floral pattern. Since that kind of sewing cannot be done by machine, it has to be hand done and that equals man hours. I think they can make it for you, but they may not want to.

Don't feel down! I would honestly be relieved that they told the truth that they could not replicate that gown. This will save you any heart ache down the road b/c they couldn't make it the way the original looks.

Ladies, you are right, this is a difficult dress to make. It's good dressilyme is being honest about this. I guess I will  have to find something else for my reception.

www.duosheng.cn


they are famos in german and australian forums and also made beautiful and good quality dresses!


you have to find out what fabric that dress has. is this an expensive brand?

I also agree that I'd be happy they were honest and didn't try to reproduce something they know they can't do. That was the proper way to handle this if they weren't confident in their ability to make a dress close enough to the inspiration dress. Sorry it didn't work out for you though.

You should try Landy Bridal as Bride1986 suggested.  They actually have a similar style in their online catalog with that flower type detail.  


http://www.landybridal.com/Product/Pro2884.html


You should try Landy photo 1913953-1


And it looks like they can even customize it for you since I saw a link below the item description details.

Kakayoyo,


        This reception dress is SUPER GORGEOUS!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!! ;) Hopefully, "Landy Bridal" would do an excellent job, I really wanna give them a try to on making my wedding dress as well. I'm choosing between Milly Bridal, Ieie dress, Duosheng, Peridress, then Landy Bridal ;). I don't know which one to choose ;) with the mixed reviews of Milly Bridal. Also your Wedding Dress from  Milly is STUNNING and it looks just like the original... Milly Bridal is my first choice from the start ;) I can't wait to see the process of your reception dress from Landy, Good luck ;) 


 


Best Wishes,


Onyx22 ;)

Hello Kakayoyo (and other brides),


I am a newbie here to PW. I was stalking the threads for reviews of Milly, Ieie, Landy and Dressilyme when I came across your post.


This reception dress is TO DIE FOR!!!!!


I created an account just to be able to ask you where you found the pic? Who is the designer???????


It resembles the Amsale Bijou but has more of a mermaid shape instead of the ballgown/princess cut of the Bijou.


Up until now the Bijou was one of my 2 dream dresses but I wasn't sure about the shape bc I am a shorter bride.


Marchesa was my other dream designer.


Wish i could post a pic for you to see but since I am new it doesnt allow it.


 


All these dresses have such intricate detail and I don't know who can make an accurate replica for me. Any suggestions anyone???


Thanks in advance,


ttkbui

try this place: http://maryannbridal.com


they have a store on ebay and have 100% feedback. that's how i found them. they have some samples that they've done on the site and looks pretty intricate. it's under stock wedding dress on the sidebar.


i just sent them an email if they can do my dress. i hope they can! their quality looks really good.

You've got to respect the honesty. Some places don't bother to tell you that they can't make it. They just take your money and run.

you should try zimo318@hotmail.com, he is an ebay seller (store ENJOY). I ordered from him I haven't received my dress yet but I started asking for BM dresses and one of them wants a dress that has a similar bottom, difficult to make, and I sent him 4 possible dresses, he said he could not do 2 of them, which I found was honest, but he could do that type of work. And from all the sellers he weas the only one willing to send pictures of his work related to the material he owuld use on my dress.


in addition, he quoted me less than dressilyme, but it was not a huge difference. And from what I see on the website dressilyme seems to have a very goo reputation.


You never know, it might be worth a trial.


 


good luck.
