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

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I got the dress. It only took 3 days to get here fom China. I have to tell you that I am really impressed with the quality and how it looks. It looks almost identical to the picture from the webside. The only change is that the ruching is not assymetrical which in my case is not flattering as I am size 14. The dress is a bit too big but true to the size I ordered. I wasn't able to lace it up properly. I will take some pics on Sunday and post them for you to see.

Overall, I am very happy with the quality and how fast it got here. I ordered it on March 1st.

Barbiegirl, I am sure you're dress will be fine!

I am not sure if I will keep it as I don't know if it is very flattering on me. As I said earlier, I might go for strapless from the same webside. I am sure I will be able to sell it and get my money back.

ALRIGHT ladies. The deposit was made tonight for my Maggie Sottero Reese knockoff from gianinabridal. I am SOOOOOOO excited to see how it comes out! They have been very responsive, which I love. Of course I'll post pics as soon as they send me the proof.

 

Since this is my TTD, I'm only worried about it being totally see through in the water.... oh well- I read somewhere to wear a white bikini underneath. Oh, and second fear: that I'll like this one more than my main dress! If that's the case, I cannot tell FI wink.gif

Margret! I'm so happy that you're really happy with the outcome of the dress! I can't wait to see some photos! I'm now very hopeful for my dress and anxious for it to arrive! I can't believe you got it in only 3 days!

Yes definitely email them again sam33. I ordered mine from them on Jan 29 and I've had it for a few days already. Then again, my wedding is sooner so maybe they prioritize by date??

I wore mine from gianinarbridal in the water and it wasn't see through at all. The inner lining is actually pretty thick (my dress is taffeta but i'm willing to bet they'll line yours the same).

Herefishie- that looks so awesome!! I'm so happy for you!!

PS - this is probably my favorite thread.

Not sure what I will do yet....I am not crazy how the dress looks on me. It is not very flattering around the waist area. I would say it is 4 icnches to wide. I need a girlfriend to help me put it on and tighten more to see if it would look better.

FINALLY got my dress on and tied by someone other than me! I'm very happy with it.... except its a bit too big. The corset back had to be tied completely down to nothing to make it fit properly on me so I'll be getting it taken in a little. Otherwise, its perfect!

 

Here's better pics (I look about 4 ft tall in some of the pics from the angle she took them at!!) lolol

Here you can see how tight it had to be to fit

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
