Post all "Knock Off Wedding Dress" questions/comments here

Recommended Posts

Okay, my dress arrived almost a week ago (so the whole process from beginning to end took only 2 weeks!), but I have been visiting my parents and will not be seeing the dress until later this week. sad.gif

Personally, I am a nervous wreck, and I am scared to death. I cannot help but think of all ofthe worst case scenarios.

Of course, I will post pictures when I get my hands on it! Lol.

Mimi83, can't wait to see the dress!

I am a bit annoyed right now. When I ordered my dress from Gianninar they only took 3 weeks to send the proof pics, then I asked them to add beading....that was on May 20th! I sent them an email on Fri, and they replied right away, apologizing and told me the new proof photos would be sent in three days. I am sure they just forgot about it!!! I am impressed that they always seem to reply quickly, but I just thought anyone who is ordering a dress, or going to order a dress needs to email, email and email!! I am glad that I fibbed and told them I need the dress for July rather than the actually.. but if my wedding was actually in July I would be FREAKING OUT right now!!

I almost had Gianninar make some changes to my dress but after reading other's say it took 3 weeks to make the changes, I emailed Gianninar back and asked them to just ship it out to me. I only had 2 very minor changes so I'm just going to take the risk and have them send it out as they made it. I don't have a lot of time since my wedding is in 5 weeks... :)
I'll post pics of me in the dress when I receive it. They told me I should have it by the end of this week..

I was thinking about doing this too, since every girl wants her dream dress but not be out a ton of money, right? A friend had done this and was completely happy with her dress. She was able to custom it, she had emailed the company with pictures of different dresses, putting together an idea of exactly what she wanted. A mock dress was made out of cheap material so she was able to tell them to adjust it. When the dress came, it looked and fit her perfectly.

Finally had a chance to take a pic of me in my dress!! The first pic is me in the original Maggie Sottero 'Reese', the second is me in the knockoff that I got made from Gianinar. I have to be honest, I am glad it is my TTD because it fits a little weird. You can see in the pic that there is a crease at the top of my leg, it seems that they just cut the material badly. Overall, I am happy with it though- def worth the 150!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
