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

Recommended Posts

I just placed my order with Babyonline.  I am getting the replica Maggie Reese Dress.  I am super nervous, anxious, excited.  They say it should be ready in 20 days.  That is really quick!  I hope it works out.  I am using this dress for my TTD, so I am not super worried, but I would like to avoid having to pay additional costs for alterations etc. 

 

It does seem that a lot of ladies have found the dress comes back too big (and not just one seller).  I wonder if they add a few inches on purpose thinking we exaggerate and make ourselves thinner, since it is easier to take a dress in than take it out.  Hmmmmm...

 

I will keep you ladies updated and post pictures once they come in.  It's the least I can do for the hours I have spent stalking this forum and thread.

 

When I msged them, I asked if they had done this dress before, and whether they had any pictures they could send me.  Although they havent done this exact, dress they did do one like it. 

Here is the inspiration pick for comparison sake.

This is the picture they did with similar bead work

daizyduke, mine came a bit big but that was intentional. I added an inch to all my width measurements because the website stated that with custom design, the exact measurement sent could vary by up to an inch either way in the final product. I would much rather it be up to too inches too big than an inch too small!

So I can't believe it but they managed to get the dress to me today!  Just like they said I received it before Oct 20!  The dress is very heavy but it is so well made!  It looks almost identical to the picture.  I will take pics when I can.  It is a little tight around my thighs but I need to lose a few anyway.  The measurements are absolutely perfect and I could not have asked for any better.  They are pricing the dress at $200 and change now but It anyone wants ruffles or rosettes, totally, totally! recomend them!  I finally got a good dress!

Rowe,

most of the brides...are in denial...so safer to be on the bigger side! I actually send them pics of me in plain bikini..to show them that I am really a 00p (yes, I used to be just a 0, but since fashion designers tried to make denial/delusional fat women to feel better, and deflated the size chart...I became a 00p..soon I may start to shop in Gap kid), so they won't make it too big for me.  Apparently I am very skinny even in China's standard.

 

MissKim,

 

Good for you, like I said, Babyonline does get it right when they aren't too busy or feel under pressure!  It is a very beautiful dress.

I agree with Bride2012, harsh...  I don't believe that any form of this statement will it be a "nicer way of stating"...  Society has caused the girls, women to believe that to be a certain size or else you fall into the fat category so therefore, they should fix the delusion they created.   Try telling a girl who tried to kill herself because she was being harassed by her family that she's "fat" at size 6.... that the fashion designers fix the numbers on little tags attached to the back of the jeans to act like a ltitle bandage for her wound....

Prettypigpig I understand the point you are trying to make - sizes have changed - but the in denial/delusional/fat thing is not okay.  This is a supportive and respectful community, please choose your words more carefully.

THANK YOU, starchild. This is not the first time prettypigpig refers to other readers as "fat", "mutant" and other not so flattering words. She should stop being such a bully. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and if she fails to see that, I just feel sorry for her.

"Delusional/fat brides", unite! I'm a proud size 14 and my husband wouldn't trade me for any model.

If you read back in this forum you'll see PrettyPig is like that.  She is very critical of others and size standards.  We seem to forget that just about 100 years ago body fat was a sign of wealth and being able to feed your family and bear children.  Sizes have changed over the last 60 years.  Marilyn Monroe was a size 12/14, however, her measurements were only 37", 25, 36 (which is just a little off from my measurements and I'm VERY happy about that!), which is a 4 or 6 today in bottoms. 

 

Being a 00 and having the body of child is not attractive to me.  Everyone has their own personal thoughts and PrettyPig has expressed many times that about the way she feels about sizing and curves.  This is supposed to about dresses and not about making any one else feel bad about themselves.

 

BACK TO DRESSES:  Highly recommend my dress maker for curvy or larger busted girls.  They got the D cups right with the perfect perportions, the waist is perfect, and the hips are perfectly done!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
