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

Recommended Posts

Hi girls, I got photos of my completed dress.

 

I ordered a replica of Impression gown style 10085. I ordered it with designer grade fabric and craftsmanship from Jasmine's Bridal Shop.

 

See the following link for closer photos of the original dress.

My original dress. I asked them to make the train shorter.

I'm generally happy with it, but I have a few things I'm not about.

- The beading and crystals in the front neckline/above chest area look different from the original. I don't know how to describe it well, but the original dress has beading and crystals only around the edge of the front neckline I think, not all over the above chest area. Also I think the original dress has bigger crystals in the middle part of the front neckline and then smaller ones around the middle crystals. Hard to describe!

- The crystals and beading in the front neckline is showing too much? In other words, the drape is higher in the original dress covering the beading and crystals a bit more?

- The back drape doesn't look symmetrical...

 

What do you guys think?

Maybe these are minor issues that I shouldn't worry too much about?

Does the dress still look okay?

Also if I was to describe the concern I have with the beading and crystals around the neckline, how should I describe it? It just seems different from the original which I liked. If you look at the link of the original dress, you can see the beading close up.

Thanks, your help is appreciated!

I think your dress is lovely and they did do a nice job with the replica. With that said, I see what you are talking about with the crystals and draping in the front.  I have no idea how to address that but it could also be how it's sitting on the mannequin?  It's so hard to tell because when it's actually on you, it could be a totally different story and while wearing the dress, you could adjust angle to might give you the illusion you are looking for. I would ask them about this.

Hi girls! I have read this blog for days, and was beginning to question whether I was going to like my dress. . . there are so many different experiences, and some dresses turn out fabulous, and some leave a lot to be desired! I just received pictures of my post-production dress, and I'm on cloud nine!! I ordered mine through DHgate from seller "weddingdress88" for only $189, including total customization and shipping! I see there are a lot of Jasmine's fans out there, and I have to agree. Their dresses are great- well made and beautiful! Congrats! My only thing is, in order to get a high quality Jasmine's gown, you have to spend 450+, and if I'm going to spend that I'd rather pay a few hundred more for the real deal for $800-$1000. My plan was to buy a knock off, and if it wasn't perfect then "no big deal!" I'd just buy the real one. For only $189 I couldn't pass up the opportunity to see! (For $450, it wouldn't seem quite as easily "disposable") The seamstress Maggie has been great! She always replies to emails the exact same day, and sometime I send several:) I'm not sure if she is the actual person who makes them or not, but she is knowledgeable and friendly and intelligible with her language. I get nervous that the language barrier would make it hard for her to understand what I meant by certain things but she understood every time. Sometimes I would wonder, because she'd reply back with "okay, no problem!!! best wishes" or "everything is making your dress is well, no worries" and I'd wonder if she knew what I had said, but she absolutely did! I love how there are no sequins on the dress. . .the "shine" you see is from actual glass beads and "pearls". I also love how the organza she uses is quality organza, and not the kind that has that shiny look! I think her dress looks equally beautiful to the real one, if you have ever seen it in person you will concur. The only thing it looks like I may change, is put a silk ribbon in for the corset lace-up back, instead of what they have. I can't really tell, though. It might be fine! Let me know what you girls think!

Here is my inspiration dress, a Mori Lee that sells for $1250 and is HARD to find.

Here are the pics of mine!

[FLOAT=RIGHT]LL[/FLOAT] Your dress is beautiful! Congrats! Also the tie they have for the corset looks similar to my tie from my dress and it looked great. It was made from the satin like material of the dress. Mine was organza too. I don't know if it'll help but ill try to post a pic of my back laced up

The original Gemma dress by Vera Wang is pretty for sure. But the one you have posted here looks awesome as well.  Unfortunately, I couldn't find the knock off dress on e-bay anymore.  Do you have Vivian's email address by any chance?

FYI: I just got an email from James at Jasmines that Lisa (who was my consultant) is no longer working there so now they are down to just him! He's going to be swamped big time.  I was just getting to the end of my transaction with them too!  I had one last thing I wanted adjusted and fixed with the lace on the bodice of my dress, but other than that I was ready to have the dress shipped soon.

Hey guys! So I just got married this past weekend! :) My dress fit on really well! I had asked them to do it lace-up so I can make it tighter or looser. :) Here is one of the photos! If you would like to see more, I will post more when I can! :) Again, I got my dress from babyonline on DHgate!

 

Sorry, I know it isn't the best picture!!

Hi there....I too love this Lazaro Dress and am burdened by the cost of the dress. Did you get it made by the China Manufacturer? If so, how did it turn out? I would love to hear about your experience and quite possibly order one for myself.
Thanks.Look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Dlirx,

 

Regarding the Lazaro Dress L3201, we are in the same situation. Were you able to get it custom made? if so, do you mind posting some pictures and the name of company in China that made it?

 

thank you very much

no i never got it made.  i was going to use an etsy seller that i think could have done a decent job, but it was going to cost $900.  it was going to be my reception dress so my limit was around $300.  i ended up going w/ a gemma replica from a dhgate seller.  it's still in the process of being made.
