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

Recommended Posts

For all you ladies that have ordered your dress online, did any of you specifically request silk satin? Do you know if Monica Bridal actually uses silk satin or do they use polyester satin? I'm thinking of getting a simple sweetheart neckline dress, fit and flare, with thin straps.  I'm not sure if I want any kind of embroidery, but if I choose not to I would just like to make sure that the fabric quality is great and looks beautiful on its own.  I was thinking of just going with an online seller that uses silk satin if Monica Bridal doesn't use it.  Any suggestions?

Hi Ginger

Thanks for the advice, unfortunatley to late I did not post the pictures of the dress, my dress arrived today from Babyonline it is just that the other bride posted a picture of the dress I ordered. Lucky for me my dress arrived perfect and fits like a glove. I never saw the original dress onley the picture on line but I tryed on lots of dresses to see what shape I liked. So I dont know if the dress is exactley like the original but it does look just like the picture. If I can workout how to do pictures I will try to put some up.

Hi I am new to this thread and wish I found it ages ago. I am expecting this dress from Babyonline tomorrow and dont think I asked enough questions before placing my order so very nervous about what I will get.

Monica bridal does silk satin I believe but it is quite expensive. The dresses are around $450+.

Ok ...I need to put on my warning msg..as usually...as I will never know what type of abnormal reply I will get

 

WARNING: Some readers may find the following msg offensive and disturbing, Readers' discretion is advised. 

 

Ok, first of all, this thread is not Kijiji, as I mentioned before there is a thread on this forum for brides to sell their stuffs.  We are smart brides, we know where to look on the forum in case we want to buy a second hand dress.

 

Second, there is smth call..DUE DILIGENCE.  Like before u buy a house, you would check it inside out.  Before you go into a restaurant, you would check the menu.  and..as a shoe seller, I think u would understand..before you buy a pair of shoes, u would try them on or at least check them out.  Therefore before u put a comment, u should read a bit on the thread.  This is a thread for budget conscious brides, dresses are below $400 in general.

 

Third, trust me, I look at myself constantly, and I would never walk out of my house with my face 3 tones paler than my neck with a shiny forehead.

 

Forth, another advice...if u are thinking of getting a $10K dress, planning to lower the cost to 3K by resell it at $7K after, JUST buy a $3K dress.

If u can find a close relative ...willing to be the sacrifice and buy the dress for u, ..then too bad to be ur relative and good for u and resell it at $7K and keep the money.

 

Fifth, no wonder our central bank is putting all sort of rules to prevent people to refinance and to become over leveraged!  Better think about my short book tonight...hmm...

Because the title of this particular thread is "Post all knock off wedding dress questions/comments here".  Just sayin'.

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
