No probs! From the dress we received I don't think you will need to upgrade. We were also thinking about getting designer grade but figured since they have made the dress before there wasn't a need too. Fabric was pretty good too..as I mentioned in previous post, when they send you progress pics, look over them really carefully and point out anything that doesn't look right (even if it is something really small). In our first progress pics, the bust was way wrong, left side of bust was pointy and right side was rounded. We also pointed out folds that weren't sitting right etc...Jasmine's were really accommidating and fixed the problems. But having said that, we weren't overly nit picking on every little detail. I mean in the end this is a replica and you can't expect to get it exactly like the original.

I've read about 100 pages (mix of beginning and end) of this thread and have a couple of questions, if someone can answer or point me in the right direction...

 

The dress I want is Wtoo's Olivia (in ivory, not the oatmeal shade most brides seem to get). I found it on a couple of knock off websites. One is BigDayDress and the other is BridalDestination. I've seen one or two remarks about BDD here, but nothing about BD. Has anyone heard anything or had personal experience?

 

I sent an email to SOP (before reading the more recent negative reviews) asking if they could make the dress, but I believe I'll be skipping them regardless of what they say when they get back to me. I also sent an email to DressilyMe and Landy.

 Is there anyone else I should get in contact with that you think could make the dress?

 

Here are a few pictures (from a Google image search - because the Wtoo photos are bad) if that helps

Congratulations nikknikk!

I ordered standard sizing because all of the dresses i tried on in bridal shops fit perfectly. This one is slightly too tight, but I've also put on a couple pounds in the last couple weeks :~/

 

I was originally going to have a Dakota replica done by SOP but since I decided not to go with them...this dress called out to me instead. I was completely anti-bling the week before I ordered it, i don't know what happened! It doesn't really resemble original Lazaro design, but I love it :) For the price, it is PERFECT for my Vegas wedding! Sorry the pics aren't the greatest! I had to be a photo ninja in poor lighting so honey didn't see it!

What do you think?

I like this dress a lot better than the original! I can't tell why because other than the flower, the dresses look the same. It might just be the way the ruffles fall in the front of the dress, but congratulations!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
