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

Now the tough decisions.... White or Ivory?

Buy it right this second or wait till the weekend? My FMIL was going to go with me to the bridal salon this weekend so I could show her the dress I'm in love with. Once I buy it (from Landry) I don't want to try on the real thing again because I don't want to get too picky with comparisons.

Since you customized your order, Jacilynda, did you find it to be pretty true to the size you ordered? Not sure if I should pick a size to keep it simple or to customize my measurements. I will need it shortened for sure. I wonder if getting a corsett back will reduce the need to get the bust taken in, since I can just tighten it.

Yaaaaaay!

I did a standard 10 and didn't really pay attention to the chart she had just cause thats what my previous dress was. One of my friends ordered from her and just ordered a custom size cause she loved mine so much she was confident enough. She hasn't received it yet so I can't comment on how well it turned out.

 

But since I didn't really pay attention to her sizes mine was a bit small. I would love to tell you custom, but my whole things was being able to return just incase it wasn't what I wanted and then have it altered later. Even getting it altered would still save me lots of moolah from the whole price of the dress. Although I have lost some weight since buying it, so I might go slip into it and see if it zips. My hips were 2 inches bigger than her chart listed my dress when i got it and its mermaid so I couldn't get it zipped but now my hips are that size. My waist is a little big, but i will try and suck it in and see what happens!

That's so exciting! I saw your pics in your other thread and you already looked fabulous in it! Are you going to be able to keep it hidden from your fiance until the big day?! I know i'll have such a hard time with that!

The good thing is that Joe does NOT want to see it until then. I have a hard time holding out, but I have it in a garment bag and he can't see it. He just has not desire to see until until that day when I'm all done up so that helps! If he was one of those guys that really needed to peak I'd probably keep it at someone elses house!

She doesn't have any short dresses listed on her site sad.gif although I guarantee she can do both of those dresses! The first one is kind of like mine but short. i will PM you her email and you can talk to her about it. She does lots of short BM dresses!

She didn't send me a pic before so I was pretty nervous but there are a few different girls who have ordered very different dresses and I think all of them have turned out great.

I have changed my mind about Zero love and I am going with Duosheng apparently they can use the real pictures of dresses and name the designers as they manufacture them. I have a formal event for work in July so I will be ordering a dress from them first before I order my wedding dress. They have shoes, veils and accessories too. It is just a matter of what to order!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
