amy michelson : Diamond here is original
Peterpanpixiedust - OMG, I am so happy to have looked in this thread! Peter, this is one of my choices for my dress! I'm having a hard time finding a place here that has a sample I can try on, I FINALLY found a place 2 hours from me that will be carrying this the end of the month, I can hardly wait! Please let us know how the replica turns out!


Ladies, all of your dresses came out amazing, you all look beautiful in them! I am now considering having my dess made instead of spending major $$$$. Since the FI and I are paying for the wedding I would like to keep our spending within our budget as much as possible and this is a perfect way to save smile123.gif

I emailed gianini to tell them the obvious imperfections of this one (back is uneven, I'm guessing it's just not finished yet- detail on front left is not the same as front right- detail down the front is a little crooked) So I'm excited to see what it looks like in person- and on me!

Lady - dress looks AMAZING!! But the back infact is uneven, and I'm sure it's because they are still working on it, but you always want to be certain. You are going to look fantastic in it, I can't wait until you show us pics when you get it! thewave.gif

If you look closely at the back of the dress, it doesn't look like it's completely zipped which is why it may appear crooked. I'll bet it snaps into the dress near the top of the zipper. The dress has the potential to be perfect for a TTD, please post the finish product!

I am pretty sure you are having a hard time because it is a new dress. I can find most of the other Amy Michelson's on other websites that advertise carrying her, but not that one. There was even a time when facebook had her line on there and I saw most but not Diamond. (Swoon kind of looks like it, but only in the back). I have no idea how it will fit, because I didn't try it on in any stores. But I do notice most Amy Michelson's retail at $3,500 and up. Even the used ones are asking for $1,200 (about what I paid for my actual ceremony dress). I know it will be somewhat different, because Gianinar doesn't use silk charmeuse (which I'm pretty sure it's made out of, because most of her dresses are; it's what gives it the silkiness of satin and the flow of chiffon all at once), they will be using "thin satin" and it's polyester based (which I am fine with because it will be going in the water and polyester is fine in water). I am keeping my fingers crossed, but when I ordered it everyone loved gianinar. Now, all these recent mishaps have me scared. I will post as soon as they send the proofs. It's a little over day 30 (they said 30-45) and my wedding is over a year away, so they might take their time. We shall see!!! :-)

yeah it is pretty interesting that all the bad reviews appear now about gianinarbridal... I am actually really happy about my dress. I got my proof pics today... I just requested a small change of the shoulderstrap which I wanted to be closer to the tie up in the back.

but other than that I am pretty happy with the result... now I just hope it will fit me...

I am less happy about my bridesmaids dresses though... everything seems a little crooked... I sent the pics to my bridesmaids, so they can decide what they want to change before receiving the dress.. I dont really get why they made that frill so long... it should be tea-length too... I just cannot decide if I should like it or hate it...

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
