Made in China

You have done your research and ready to shop China online. Here are some tips for purchasing a wedding dress from a Chinese dressmaker.
Many wedding dresses stocked in salons are made in China to begin with, these dresses are often made to a list of specifications, there is no reason why you can not request your own specifications to make sure your dress is well made. Generally Chinese dressmakers are very cooperative and helpful so they should be able to fulfill your wishes. Some things you might want to ask before you buy:

  • For a nicer fabric. It will drive up the cost a little but there is nothing wrong with asking them to use a better quality fabric. Ask for a natural or silk based fabric rather than a polyester/man-made fabric.
  • If you’re buying lace, ask them not to use a stiff one, good lace should be soft. Stiff laces look cheap and can make a wedding dress look and feel awful when worn.
  • If you’re buying satin ask for one with a high thread count.
  • Ask for fabric samples (especially if your dress requires lace and/or satin)
  • For more layers in the skirt! This will also drive up the cost a little but it will be well worth the extra cost.
  • A reputable site will make themselves accessible, helpful, and responsive. Don't hesitate to reach out with any and all questions on fit, style advice, personal information security, options and general guidance. If you can't find contact information, consider it a Red flag.
Some dresses ship immediately. Others will take several months to ship. Some sites will allow you to return the dress if you're not satisfied with how it fits. Many sites will charge a restocking fee, which is a common practice. And those special made to order gowns, will not accept returns. Make sure you know the return policy before you order a dress. After all it is still your hard earned money!
