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

Recommended Posts

A few pages back, a couple people had suggested going into a store to try on dresses before ordering one online... and now that I've finally gone into a store, I have to say... you were SO right!!  What I thought would look good on me made me look shapeless... and what I thought wouldn't look good made me look fantastic.  Such good advice, thanks ladies  :)

 

Now that I know what works... off to search for my dream dress online lol.  Time to dig through Monica Bridal's dresses again!

It was the same thing for me! You know you are not limited to their selection right? Pick any dress on the internet that you like and send it to them and they will tell you if they can do it or not. Good luck with your search! :)

You really need to try some on Mocha.  I found that narowed things right down as some dresses just did not match my body shape.  Good luck.  Trying is a process in itself.

Marzm - I've tried on a ton of dresses, probably abut 50 - 60 at several different stores and all kinds of different styles. There's been lots of definitely no's and a couple where I like one aspect such as the top, but not the bottom. But overall nothing. That's why I was planning on going the custom made route, to get what I want and not have to compromise.

well, I officially no longer belong on this thread lol.  Went to a bridal show today and fell in LOVE with a dress that was being sold by one of the vendors there.  I tried it on, and it fit perfectly!  Bought it off the rack so got it at a great price... I have my dress!!  Yay!!   :D

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
