I love Amsale! I'm actually doing her Bali style as a knock-off!

I'm new to the site and i'm so happy i came across this forum! I'm going to try dresses on for the first time at Kleinfelds in a few weeks and i'm so nervous that i wont find anything within my budget. I must say, I am totally leaning toward knocking off now! Below is the dress of my dreams (Amsale Blue Label) and I'm going to do some research to see which dressmaker will execute it the best. I'm leaning towards Landy or Babyonline. Let me know what you guys think!

I´m in the exact same boat! I am still in the process of losing weight, so I´m not sure if I should wait a few months to order, or reduce the measurements a bit... did you decide what to do?

and I know that I will lose the weight, I´ve just added it over the last year from the stress/adjustment of moving to a new country. I´m about 1-2 sizes bigger than my true normal.

I thought maybe I´d just order one at my current size, and then just have it taken in, but I´m worried about how MUCH they will have to take it in! hahah will it still look like the same dress?

Let me know what you decide... my wedding is in September, so I think my deadline to get something ordered will be June 1.

 

Hi!

 

I haven't decided what I want to do just yet, but I'm leaning towards taking an inch of my current measurements. I know that it will still need to be taken in a lot, but it will at least be a little bit less!

I'm going to try on some dresses this weekend and will ask someone in the Bridal Salon what they think (without mentioning that I'm buying a knock-off, of course) ;)

Ok I got photos of my bridesmaid dresses from monica bridal and I am pretty happy! :o)

 

The girls want a sweetheart neckline so I emailed monica bridal asking for this to be altered but all in all for $59 I think we have made a good choice!

 

They are not completely finished yet so you can still see the pins, please let me know if you see any faults that I should let them know for final alterations!

 

They assured me the dresses are black also, and it is just the lights and flash of their camera that have made them look a little washed out.

 

The pictures of this dress are for my bridesmaid with a BIG bust so it looks a little droopy on this mannequin.

I think I found my dress. It's the Adorae dress by Maggie Sottero.  Do you think I can get a replica made with good quality satin? I don't want polyester. Who would be the best one to make it?

Hi there,

I'm new to this forum but I must say it is awesome! Just wondering if anyone has heard of reviews about Ava bridal? They have good feedback on ebay and net, but not much feedback out there about them??

Mocha, very sorry to hear about your dress, It's awful, waiting for your wedding dress and not even be able to alter it before your wedding day. Are you still waiting, or did they ship your dress by now? I hope it will be in time.

Hi All,

 

My dress arrived from Babyonline yesterday and the workmanship and detail is amazing. It is so good that i feel really bad that i got it so cheap. It is a little bit big, but nothing a dress maker can not fix. I was really surprised how good it was. I was really worried a few days after i ordered it, and it took longer than they said. I thought it might be a disaster, and may not turn up at all, so i got a J Crew dress on ebay incase it was awful and did not arrive. Now i am not sure which one i will use. Anyway thought i wold put your mind at ease if you have ordered or thinking of ordering from Babyonline. 

Gracimurano, cannot wait to hear about your dress. It looks stunning from the pics.

I am even happier with the second pictures I have received with the sweetheart neckline that I had asked for and I am sure they are only going to look even better on my girls :P

Beachy, could we please see some pictures of your dress? I have also ordered my dress from Babyonline and seeing a beautiful dress would help me relax a little bit!
