Should I worry?

I ordered my dress about a week ago and yesterday I emailed and asked if I could get a photo of the dress sent to me before it is packaged up and their response was....


"Hello Mamdy, Nice hearing from you. We regret to say we couldn't send you pictures of the dress when it is finished. Because our production department has so many orders to process this busy season that they don't have time to take photos. Sorry for the inconvenience caused. We would be very appreciative if you could understand our limitations. But our dressmakers will tailor your dress according to your special requirements and the website picture. Please feel at ease. We trust our experience in tailoring and reliable quality may entitle us to win your confidence. Any other questions, please contact us freely. Best wishes"


:(


I feel like if I don't have the same opportunity to check to make sure it is okay if I don't get a photo....


Should I accept that or should I push for a photo?


Sugggestions appreciated :) thanks

I haven't seen a photo before it went to Transit and it worked out fine. I have a dress from their website and I trusted their workmanship. They made the dress before. I think  if my dress was a custom design, I would push for a photo.

hey I was the same as you. I asked for a photo and they told me they were too busy. I asked again and said "pretty please" and they told me not to worry. The dress came and it looked great.. but the sizing was off.. and I def would have been able to see that had they sent me a pic.. BUT I wouldnt worry based on 99% of the reviews .... I am sure it will be okay :)

I did not get a pic from them either.  But I am happy to say my dress turned out PERFECT from them and was even better then what I thought it would be.  I'm sure your dress will turn out gorgeous :)

Your dress did come out fantastic!


I think I'm just super anxious because if this doesn't work out with buying online, I don't know what else i'm going to do as we don't really have any bridal stores opperating in our city(Because of the earthquake we had 3 months ago)...If I want to buy a dress from a store i'll have to fly to another island to find one! :(

I'm sure it will come out perfect Mandy - or if there are any lil things you dont like maybe you could just end up having it altered a little bit - would be cheaper then flying somewhere else :)

They told me the same for the Jacket's photo but said they'll send me the wedding dress photos at the 8th of June.. but my dress isn't from their site so maybe that is why..


good luck

I'm so happy today I went and spoke to a dressmaker who owns a bridal fabric shop and she said that I shouldn't worry because very occationally things can go wrong with chinese dresses but she also told me a few stories about designer dresses that had gone horribly wrong (shop ordered 4 sizes too big then blamed the bride for losing weight etc). Over all she was really supportive of what I was doing and said that when it come in if i'm not happy she can help me fix it up so that I love it but she also said that she is sure that I will be pleased with it. :D I feel so happy now after speaking to somebody who has actually had a lot of experience with chinese replica dresses and who i know is going to help me fix it if all goes terribly wrong. Yay!
