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

I agree, mine was supposed to be all lace but they instead used beading, and it just gives it a harsher feel. Not soft or flowy.

The dressmaker I asked to make my lace dress also put beads. At least for my dress, I think they did that to hide the fact that the lace wasn't of high quality...

Oh well, I guess if I don't like it, I can spend $400 to get Jasmines to make it the way I want (I chose the save money route initially thinking I would spend more if I needed to)...at least there are options:)  I should receive the dress today, maybe I will like it once it's on?!?!

Newbie question for you guys.  I fell in love with a Reem Acra dress "Sunset Boulevard" (you will have to google it since my last post with pictures got stuck in mod)

 

After I read this thread I contacted Landry, Jasmines, Gianinarbridal,  BabyOnline and almost every vendor recommended on here.  Every one except BabyOnline said "no" since it is too much detailing.  I also found the knock-off online at discount-dress.com and nissenbridal.com and shoppegowns.com

 

Have you ladies heard of any of these websites?  Should I take a chance with BabyOnline or just give up on the dress entirely?

I would say forget it.  You will lose the detailing the way she has done it.  You will probably get a lace overlay dress, v-neck, with some beading on the sheer back.  If you like the general style of Sunset Blvd go ahead.  But if is the flowy-ness and detail you loved forget it.  Good Luck!

Omg! I think one-stopos and babyonline are the same seller. Look at Roxy 6997's pictures and mine: the mannequin is the same! Unless they all use mannequins labelled (8 XIN LAI) One-stopos was more expensive? Maybe the seller is the same but they commision it from different factories.

I got my dress from BABYONLINE.  Overall a great experience.  I didn't like the beading/lace applique at first but it grew on me and it actually looks nice, not tacky.  TIP: if you MUST have lace, ask for it specifically, or go with one of the "more expensive" quotes such as Jasmine's where you can specify you materials.

 

The fit is great.  The materials seem very nice and the dress has some weight to it.  It looks well made as well.  They made it to my exact request (other than the lace).  Only thing I am going to alter is getting some cups in the chest to add some oomph (because oomph is essential for your wedding day)!!  It may be a little long as well, but I will worry about that later.

The only negative I have is that the pictures of the dress before shipping are of crappy quality, which everyone seems to have happen.  Other than that I am pleased and would recommend BABYONLINE.  If you have any questions, I can try to help.

 

Best wishes!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
