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

Recommended Posts

Ok because I had such a hard time finding info on buying a Chinese knock off I want to post a detailed review. This dress is gorgeous. Really well made. Great details, there are little beading details that are very well done. The ruching is lovely. The fabric is really soft and pretty. I paid $200 including rush shipping and processing for a custom made wedding dress. There's a ribbed bodice, nice satin inner lining, beautiful chiffon outer layer. And it's exactly what I ordered. The waist could be taken in a bit but that's because I mismeasured my natural waist (took it too low and therefore the number was larger) and I meant to tell them to remove the train but I forgot. But they made exactly what I ordered and did an excellent job of copying the original. Honestly, it fits wonderfully and really doesn't need any alterations just that one little 1/2 inch or so! Best purchase I've ever made! Couldn't love it more.

 

 

They were super responsive when I asked them to remove the sequins, always answering my emails promptly. I could not recommend dressilyme.com more for a wedding dress. Not sure about bigger poofy ones but for this fairly simple sheath one I couldn't have done better. The quality is way better than most of the dresses I tried on at David's Bridal.

Hello everyone,

 

I'm new here on this forum. I am getting married in May 2015 but still have to find a dress! Because of time  (purchasing one here in Europe in bridal stores takes about 3-4 months to get it...) and budget constraints (well, you only wear it just once & I would rather spend more on the honeymoon than on the dress) I was leaning towards ordering one online... I found one I like on lightinthebox.com (http://www.lightinthebox.com/nl/MADISEN---Trouwjurk-van-Satijn_p80720.html). There are quite a lot of 'real' pictures on the website from brides who have posted their pictures. I would have it custom made to my measurements plus it has the lace-up in the back which should ensure it to fit nicely even if the size isn't perfect.

 

I have never really ordered clothes online before though and especially for a wedding dress I do have some reservations... Does anyone have experience with this website at all?

 

It is really cheap for a wedding dress but if this does not work out, I really wont have any time left to go find something else...

 

Any advice/thoughts/ideas you girls have to share would be very much appreciated!

 

Thanks!

I looked at this site as well. I would go ahead and take the chance and order it. As you said, there are many good reviews with actual photos so your chances of getting something you're happy with is pretty good. I ended up ordering a dress from a Chinese dress maker through Etsy. Instead of using designer photos they post their own designs. I was pleased with that because I was looking at photos of their acutal work. That plus almost 300 5-star reviews gave me confidence. I just placed my order on Monday so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

 

Good luck.

Who did you use from Etsy?  I'm leaning towards Misdress.

Misdress was in the running and I had many communications with them but ultimately ordering from Mermaid bridal. I am ordering 2 dresses from Misdress for my daughters though. Misdress has many excellent reviews as well.

 

I see we have the same date! Congrats date twin. :)

You're welcome. FYI, China will be shut down for a  month beginning in a couple of weeks for Chinese New Year so your production time will be extended by that long. Don't wait too long to get your order in. Come back and post what you decide to go with!

    • 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. 
    • 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.
