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

Recommended Posts

Alright, ladies, I've been lurking for months. I've been waiting to get engaged. Still not official yet, but he has bought the dress, so I'm unofficially looking at dresses. :)

 

I fell in love with this dress based on pictures. This is my second wedding, so I'm on a super tight budget, and I'd never pay $8000 for a dress anyways, so I'm looking to go the knock-off route. I know someone on here has had a designer make this dress. My concern is the fabric. I want it to be the light, airy feel, but I'm wondering if they can do that.

 

Here are some pics: (Sorry for so many, I'm a wee bit obsessed)

Dianna,

I think..about 100-200 pages ago, there was a bride who ordered the same dress from Gianniar, I don't think anyone can make it...the original is made with handcut silk....

after following this page since december, i decided to send pictures to LANDYbridal in hopes she could recreate my dress. I recieved it in the mail today, and to my suprise I AM IN LOVE! i was so nervous that it just couldnt be done! The only negative thing i have to say is she did not email me proofs OR email me before she sent the dress. below are the original and then the landy version! (will post with more pics)

Mocha, any news on your dress? Did you track it? I received my tracking number form Babyonline today, without them sending me any pictures of my dress, as promised. The tracking number seems real, so I just hope for the best.

I agree with Mocha. Go with Vera at Davids.

A knock off of this dress will leave you disappointed

Manni - it is somewhere in Canada. Hopefully it will arrive at my office today. Since Babyonline screwed up and sent it to the wrong address, I had to contact the courier company and request to have it redirected. The courier company didn't do this and it was signed for at the old address. So now that person is forwarding it to me. I'm trying to prepare myself for the worst, but right now I'm worried I will have to wear a dress that either doesn't fit or looks horrible.

Oh Mocha, I feel so awful for you... You are in my thoughts and prayers that everything goes right and that dress fits you like it was meant to be a second skin.

I hope everything else in your planning is going smoothly, because this is such a bummer =(

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • 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!
