    I went to a Maggie trunk show on the weekend and I think I've decided which dress I want but I can't find it listed on the Monica Bridal site. Do you think they will still do a good job if I just provide them with the Maggie name? The bridal shop allowed us to take some pictures of me in the dress so I could probably include those as well. Just not sure what to do since there is such a price difference. I think I should just take my chances and order it from Monica Bridal but allow myself time to order from Maggie Sottero. I'm just not sure if I will be able to resist trying it on everyday once it's in my closet.

        Just send them the pics of the dress, and see if they can make it.  The one you picked isn't that complexe, so I guess they can make it.  There is another seller called topspartner on dhgate, they are also good at Maggies and Pronovias replicas.

          The dress is beautiful. It looks similar in difficulty level to many of the replicas that I have seen and they have all turned out beautifully. I think that it will be fine. Good luck, and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product!

            Hey Mocha

            beautiful dress you choose and don't worry about it not being on their website. Once I showed them the link of the dress and sent them instructions as i made a few changes they then added that dress as an item number for me. I asked for different beading and they said they could do whereas other china vendors onlu used certain beads so i wouldn't worry i think they can do this dress for you. And well you already know my plan which is to order that dress from monica bridal now and still have enough time to order the original just in case! i think it is well worth the risk and based on what other brides have said they are very happy with the dress they received from monica bridal so GO FOR IT!!!! :)

              I'm new to the forum's, but I'm pretty sure I saw someone a picture of this dress that someone had made in an earlier post in this thread.  It was a bit back though, so I'm not sure of the page.

                Well, I got an email reply from monica bridal. They said no problem making a replica for $140 including shipping. That's less than the sales tax to buy the original.

                 

                So I think I'm going to order it. Just need to get someone to take my measurements.

                  Yay congrats. I can't wait to see both of our dresses completed. Did they tell you how long before you received it once you placed the order. I keep confusing vendors but I think it takes 10 days to make and 5 days to ship which is amazing! Mine is 144us and my sales tax on the original would have been 125$. this is a still and a half! But I am also getting a petticoat and veil included in that price so I am super happy.

                    Did you order yours yet? I'm pretty sure they are 10 days to make and 5 to ship. I haven't asked about a veil but it would be great if they included one.

                      What is the email address for Monica Bridal.  The one I have keeps bouncing back.
