I was wondering if anyone knows of a place in Ireland where you can get measured for replica dresses that are made up in China? I have my eye on a beautiful Pronovias dress which is way out of my league at about €5000 but I have viewed a number of websites that claim to be able to make a copy of the same dress for US$300!! Has anyone any experience of this?
Hi there, I just got my BM's dresses from DHgate and they are amazing.
Only cost me £60stg as opposed to £250-300.
I went for something Id seen on gossip girl.
You have to wait 5 weeks but they had a live chat thingy which was great as I was able to get the length of the girls dresses right.
Defo worth a punt- good quality and I was able to track mo order- through paypal so no messin about with cc numbers.
Thanks so much I will look into that, did you have any trouble with sizes? Some of those sites are quite confusing when you look at the size charts....
I was able to do the weblive chat with them so was able to order US size 8 ( Ire 12). I went bigger so if alterations were needed they could be done later. What was good about them was that I could stress the heights of the fgirls with shows. My girls are 5'5 and their shoes will be 3 inches so I could tell them the dress was to be made for someone 5'8 with shoes on.
just be careful, they all seem to copy the designers picture but it doesnt mean that what you get, i came across a facebook page on this recently, if i can find it again i'll put up link, some were disastrous, as in open mouth gasp as i scrolled down, no joke, gonna see if i can remember how i found it now...
Sounds like a good option so, the prices are so low that even if it doesn't work out to plan you haven't lost out on a fortune. I would be interested to see the disasters aswell though!! XC
