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

Recommended Posts

My dress had embroidery but it was on a heavy satin rather than over the organza like your dress has, Ava Bridal did an awesome job on all their embroidery work (as my mum and MILs had embroidery included in their dresses or accessories too). It might be worth sending a pic to them and asking. They respond quickly and I found they were honest when I asked them if dresses were possible to make too :)

The only problem is that its so detailed with embroidery and consists of multiple colors that most cant do it =( I appreciate their honesty but I am still hopeful to find a company that feels confident enough to take on this job. I dont have permissions to upload so here is the link to the dress as I want it.

I used dressilyme and wrote a long review on here. My mum got a few quotes: Shades of Pale's cheapest quote was $150 US Dressilyme's quote was #167.58US plus shipping plus costom sizing. She found a seller on dhgate called Bestdavid. Bestdavid has 98% positive feedback. Bestdavid was selling the dress for $128  canadian dollars and free shipping so she ordered from best david after she did a live chat with them. She order this dress on January 11, 2012 and recieved the dress today January 18, 2012. Overall, my mum is very happy about this dress. The quality of this dress is amazing. The craftmanship is stunning. The dress is fully lined and stitched beautifully. The flowers on this dress is stunning. Her only complainst are the color of the dress is a little darker and that the bust is a little tight. I think the bust size is 1inch too small and she is not used to wearing a built in bra. I think it will be okay once she tries it on a couple more times. She can't gain any weight in the next 4 months lol. In real life the dress doesn't look tight at all and she has a lot of room to move around. This is the dress right out of the bag! I think this dress is perfect for my wedding in May and she can wear it again after my wedding.

Has anyone ordered a dress from ZiZi Bridal?  Their works looks great and they quoted me slightly cheaper than Jasmine's Bridal.  I have a dress with a lot of rouching and gathers.

 

Here is their Facebook page, name in messages comes up as Zee Zubair:  http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=505159033&ref=tn_tnmn#!/pages/ZiZi-Bridals/214265621992508

Has anyone heard of http://www.milanobridal.com?  I'm not sure if they're a knock-off or not but the prices are extremely low.  I'm curious though because it's advertising the actual designer so I don't know how that works if it's a knock-off.  For some reason I thought they couldn't make it appear as though it were designer.  Has anyone used them?

Traci, I have yet to see any reviews on this vendor and their website only has pics of the designer pics none of the ones they have actually made. Which raises some suspicion. I have emailed him for pictures. Also I will tell you that the # on their website although a local # is somehow forwarded to a phone in CHINA! So a chinese woman picked up..I thought that was a very good look. There customer service answered me within a few hours also!! Now if we can just see some of their work or a bride who has used them we would be good. This was his inital reply to me when I asked about him advertising actual designer dresses and clarification that they were in fact replicas:

 

We are professional wedding dress designer and manufacturer headquartered in Suzhou,Jiangsu Province,China. The dresses on our website are made by our company. We ensure that the dress will be 90%-95% close to the original.

We sell such quality dresses at a much lower price is because we operate at a much lower cost and much lower margin.

Your 100% satisfaction is what we strive for.

Have any of you brides who've ordered knock off dresses, also ordered a knock off veil? I'm toying with that idea, as I can't imagine paying $200 for the veil I want (chapel length w/ lace). 

 

Thanks!!
