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

Recommended Posts

Just got pictures of my dress!  Anyone have any suggestions on things I should ask to be tweaked before its sent out?  I've already noticed that the lace peeking over the top of the neckline is uneven, so I'm going to ask for that to be trimmed down to not peek over at all.  I've also asked for the back of the dress to be a corset style, so will be asking to see a picture of that as well.  Overall, the color of the beading is much more gold than I would have liked, but its not a big deal... dress turned out great!

I really like the detail and the length of the train. I know she mentioned to me that she was going to start showing the measurements with the pictures, so ask for those to ensure it's not too big which has been a common issue.

Ooh, thanks for that suggestion mocha.  It's looking a bit shapeless on that mannequin, I'm hoping that the back just wasn't laced up properly when the picture was taken. 

 

I'm really hoping that the camera is responsible for how gold the beading looks in the picture.  Guess I'll find out when it gets here!  Worst case, I'll just pick off the beading if its that bad when it arrives :)

Michelle,

I have ordered this dress and I was not happy with it. Basically it came too big and ruouching lay horizontally and loose ( maybe it appeared to be loose as it was too big).

Don't forget, chiffon goes not lay flat...

So, the dress is in the bottom of my closet and since then I ordered and received Maggie dress.

My experience was fantastic. Now I did know the dresses were knockoff and I had seen one of their dresses in person so, I had a little bit to go on but was still nervous. I ordered a maggie sotterro gown from inweddingdress.com and not only is it beautiful and well made but it came in early! I had the rush of 40 business days and I got it in 20!!! As long as you know the dresses are knock-off and are ok with that- this is soooo worth it!

Margaret -  Did you get this same dress from Babyonline?  Is this dress a Maggie?  I wasn't sure.

Monica Bridal sent me a picture of my dress today, I can't wait to get it! I hope it looks nice on, it looks nice in the picture I think. Very similar to the inspiration dress, flowers are a little different but that is to be expected, can't expect things like that to be exact! :)

thanks! From the pic it looks like they did a really nice job!  I really like the fullness in the bottom of the dress, the one on the model doesn't seem as full and when I tried it on at the bridal shop it did seem more full like the one MonicaBridal made.  I am a full figured but short girl so I'm hoping the dress still looks nice on my body type.  Can't wait to get it! :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
