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

Recommended Posts

Here are images of the two dresses I bought at dhgate (two different sellers) I got a vera wang replica of the gemma style from linlin5518 400 400 And I got an Inbal i Dror imitation from wholesale factory. 400 400 Customer service on wholesale is great, the linlin not so much. Rosy at wf has been wonderful and replying to all of my messages and requests wonderfully, even after paying, always reassuring me that the dress is beautiful! (As opposed to the ok yes no replies from others). They are still being made so Im still keeping my fingers crossed! I will post as soon as I get them!
I've been looking into getting the Inbal Dror dress. Please post once you get it I would love to see it

These dresses are just beautiful.  I too am looking for something very similar.  With the lowcut open back, detailed straps, and fitted going down.  Unfortunately the designers I LOVE are way out of my price range.  Did you wind up ordering the knockoff online?  If so, how has the process been so far?

UNTIL I came across "THE" dress... I have never tried it on but the lady at the bridal store was telling me about the designer after explaining what I was looking for. So here is the dress I have decided on:

 

 

700    700

Top of Dress

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Back of Dress

 

700

Dress on London Runway - I just want a longer train

 

 

 

I have requested quotes from:

   - Babyonline (no reply yet)

   - Jasmine's Bridal (no reply as they are behind on their replies)

   - EnjoyWeddingLife ($179)

   - DressilyMe (refused to make due to the complexity of the top bra)

 

I am a tall (5'9") female with a naturally large chest (34D) and a small waist (26").  So I need a dress with support otherwise I just look frumpy - but I've always dreamed of having a backless dress as I am muscular (Bikini competitor at bodybuilding shows) so I consider my backside a major asset.  I plan on having a lace veil to match the length of the train.

 

What do y'all think?

 

this is my first post so it may take a while for the pictures to show. :)

 

Thanks! :)

okay so now ive got mixed feelings... i requested rates from jasminesbridalshop.com and dresilyme.com for two dresses. mori lee 3124 and soterro and midgley's Tracey.

for mori lee 3124 jasmines charged 520USD plus additional 120USD for a sparkly sash, premium grade, which brings me to a total of 640USD,, the original dress costs 940USD!!  thats just 300usd difference.. not much of a saving if u ask me and i dont think 300usd is worth the risk.. dresilyme however charged a total of  308usd.

 

Mori Lee 3124

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

 

 

soterro and midgley's Tracey.

jasminesbridalshop charged 520USD and also additional 120usd for full sparkly sash, premium grade. original cost 1752USD now that is alot of savings!!

dressilyme however charged total of 347usd. and ofcourse additional for sparkly belt.

 

pic of someone i found on google wearing soterro and midgley's Tracey along with fully sparkly sash.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80

 

im such a HUGE fan of jasminesbridalshop.com, i did alot of research on them, viewed ALOT of dresses made by them and have been really impressed. but why are they so damn expensive?? im so mad right now cause i had my mind set on using them!!! i did alot of resarches on dresilyme also and was impressed with only SOME of their workmanship. but there prices are really great!! ok girls so sorry for the long post but what do u guys think??

I also want to get my dress from Jasmine's but I agree that their prices are getting quite high. I started looking and following other makers because I still do not want to spend past $400 for a dress.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
