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

Recommended Posts

I received the photo of my dress from Monica Bridal.  They only sent a photo of the front which makes me a little nervous; I requested a pic of the back which hopefully I'll receive soon.  I asked for a different neckline so you'll notice it is different than the inspiration dress.  The only other difference I see is the way the skirt is gathered, but I don't think I necessarily like it less than the inspiration dress.  What do you ladies think?  Any changes that you would suggest?  Thanks!!!!

P.S.  Why does their workshop look like the house of a hoarder?!  Lol

Karen, I think it looks very similar but the folds will probably fall a little different once you are wearing it, versus the mannequin.

 

LOL... as long as our dresses arrive clean and without mysterious smells I don't care what their warehouse looks like!

Thanks for all of the insight regarding boning, everyone! Like many of you have said, it is worth ordering the dress and if it doesn't turn out quite like I hope it will be perfect for Trash the Dress!

 

Does anyone know if you can pay more for higher quality fabric? My dress is french taffetta and I would love to have something similar. 

 

Karen that dress looks great!!!

mine was nicely packed and sealed with the veil in a different package.  no smell (except the plastic smell) and no dust. Surprisingly..not too wrinkly as well.  Now it has cat hairs on its train, because my cats love to zzz on the tulle so much.  Every time I try my dress on, my cats will come...running!  I probably will have to clean it before wearing it for my big day.

yeap, you are totally right!  I paid $400 for mine, because I asked for silk lining, nice lace and excessive beadings and tons of tulles.  However, for around $200, they can make a nice dress for TTD or cocktail/reception.

OMG, are you serious?!  Did the smell go away after a few days or did you have to febreeze it or something?

hahaha..Karen, don't Fabreeze ur dress, so far Lisa is the only one who notice there is some smell.  I only smelled the plastic bags. You can hang your dress in your bathroom during shower time to "un-wrinkle" it, and put lavender papers to "fabreeze" it.  Get a bridal dress bag to house your dress.
