I ordered my wedding dress from China. I was a little apprehensive but read the feedback and placed my bid. The price was inclusive of all handling and shipping fees.
I paid via paypal so i was secure in knowing that i was covered should anything go wrong and my wedding is 6 months off so i had time to shop if the dress didnt arrive.
I realised after paying for the dress that i forgot to pay insurance!!
I waited for about 3 weeks and emailed the seller and she emailed me back with a tracking number and i was able to track the dress from Shanghai, through UK customs, to parcelforce all within about 5 days!!!
My dress arrived- it is the most beautiful, professionally finished dress that i could have imagined and i paid £95.00.
I have since ordered my bridesmaid dresses for £60 and £65 inc each and cant wait to see them! ( this time i remembered the insurance- just in case the parcel got lost)
Ladies,.looked at alot of sites prior to taking the plunge and I think the key here is to make sure that the price you bid is inclusive of all misc.charges i.e handling and shipping, and that you pay via paypal, that way should the item never appear and you need to claim then this is the amount you get back.
I have recommened victoria to loads of people- she does the most amazing evening gowns too!
