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

Your dress fits you absolutely perfectly!  It is beautiful.  I spoke to the Monica Bridal rep last night and she assured me that they are being very careful with sizing on a go forward basis.  I wouldnt' expect any designer dress I order to fit me absolutely perfect either.  Mine seems to be easy to make alterations to so I'm not the least bit concerned.  In fact I'm glad that the ruffles start lower on the body than the original.  Adds some nice drama for pics. :)

Thanks for sharing these pics!!  They did a fantastic job with your dress, its almost impossible to tell the difference betwen the two.

 

And also thank you for sharing where you ordered this dress!!  I had already bought a dress off-the-rack but was not completely in love with it and was casually browsing for something else that caught my eye.  I've been looking at some of the other vendor's dresses (gianinar, monica bridal) and didn't see anything else I liked... and then I checked out the vendor you ordered from and have fallen head-over-heels in love with a dress that they make!  Thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!  cheesy.gif

 

How long did it take for you to receive your dress after you ordered it?

Now I could totally use some advice from you ladies who know more about this than I do!  I'm not all that crazy over the bottom half of the dress.  The gathered areas (what the heck are they called?) seem random to me and not very elegant.  Not sure how I would want that to look though... I just know that I want it to look different.  I've asked for close-up pictures of the bodice, and have been told that the bottom can be changed however I like.  Any suggestions?  :)

I LOVE the bodice on this but I see what you mean about the bottom. It depends on if you want it pouffy with gatherings or maybe just a straight a-line with some detail. I do kinda like the pick up dresses. I am no help at all really cause I was just like you. Either I loved the top but not the bottom or vice versa of almost every dress I tried on!!!
