    I bought my wedding dress online custom made. It wasn't white though it was burgundy. I made sure I added an inch or two in some places as we were TTC. I figured it was easier to take in rather than take out. It was from Asia somewhere and the ladies English was very limited via email but the end product was well worth all the emails. I did it through eBay and paid via PayPal so I felt safe it would be good. The dress arrived with heaps of time to spare and the only issue was it didn't zip up due to my bust size. I took it to a local dress maker and she added in a lace up back so it gave me that little bit of extra room. I also loved it! Good luck

    dresses on this site are custom made so you need to give your measurements which i am more scared of doing as i might measure wrong!

    They should have easy to follow directions or you could also just go to a dressmaker and pay them to take the measurements

    I bought my wedding dress and my flower girl dress from an online seller (from china I think). I was happy with them both.
    My dresses were very simple though, so I don't know if I would take the risk if the dress has a lot of detailing.

    I had to have the hem taken up about 2 cms but it fit perfectly everywhere else.
    Now that's something to be proud of when something looks more $ when it was a steal. The alterations would of cost a heap compared to the dress price!

    I think I spent the same on the alterations and hoop hire as I did on the dress to be honest

    My sister and best friend both ordered their bridesmaids dresses through light in the box. They were both good quality and looked lovely, but needed some of the girls needed altering (even though we paid extra for my sisters to get them custom fitted, they still didn't fit). The alterations on my sisters cost more than the dress, though we went to someone else for my best friend and it was cheaper. So yeah, they were fine and looked good, but factor in possibly having to have them changed.

    my result: overall very happy with quality of material, made to order dress, fits perfectly, turnaround was 22day from payment to delivery which i think is a great turn around for a custom dress, especially when i ordered in DEC! (ordered 2 different sizes also). will just need to buy a hoop to puff out the dress alittle more, which shouldnt be much, but for $65 i am very happy with it! something that looked close to that was over $300 in shops and imo this is my favorite!, and is also a lace up back which is another thing i really love about it, havent seen childrens dresses as lace up at shops here so very happy!

    so glad the flower girls dresses are ticked off my list and am happy with them!!!
